Kate Beckinsale Informs Kelly Ripa That Her Set's Faucets Are Phallic, Pic Proves It

Kate Beckinsale appears to have alerted Kelly Ripa to something interesting. The Pearl Harbor actress recently made an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Ryan – it's unsurprising, then, that the 46-year-old's social media activity is revolving around it.

It's always a little offbeat with Kate, though -- the actress has even revealed her vagina's name on Instagram.

Today seemed to stick to the theme, in a way. Kate took to Instagram earlier today from behind the scenes, with a photo of herself with her makeup artist, Chase Aston. Both Kate and Chase were in a bathroom from the Live! set, with Kate in selfie mode in front of a faucet and a counter covered with cosmetics.

Fans' eyes may have been on Kate. That said, a quick look at the star's caption appeared to see the post revolve around the faucet itself. Kate had joked that Chase was struggling to cope with the fact that the faucet was phallic-shaped, with the caption reveal turning the update into way more than just Kate rocking an off-the-shoulder dress in front of a mirror. Kate was holding her smartphone as she snapped the pair, with her eyes glancing at her makeup artist with a humorous expression. Chase himself didn't look too pleased, although it seemed that Kate had taken his facial expression and applied it to the caption, as he wasn't directly indicating that the oddly-shaped faucet was causing him distress.

"I've never been in this position before—never dated anybody who comes with their own bag of mischief. It's all quite shocking, and something to get used to. I think if you liked the person less, you would bow out of it. If that were the main thrust of the relationship, there would be a problem. But it's not," the star said, as Elle reports.

Kate now appears to be single. Presumably, any man she dates in the future will be more than prepared for a girlfriend with a sense of humor.
