Edie Falco ‘not surprised’ Pete Davidson is ladies’ man

Edie Falco understands why Pete Davidson is so irresistible to the ladies.

“You kind of fall in love with him once you meet him,” said the actress, who will play Davidson’s mother in the upcoming Peacock series “Bupkis,” exclusively at the Broadway opening of “Leopoldstadt” on Sunday night.

“There’s something so endearingly vulnerable and beyond” [about him]. He doesn’t play games. He’s not trying to uphold an image that goes beyond what he does,” she continued. “He’s absolutely sweet. Once you meet him, you just want to hug him.”

Falco, 59, shared that she is “not surprised” that Davidson has dated the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kate Beckinsale and Kaia Gerber.

“He’s as honest a person as I’ve come across in a long time,” she said enthusiastically.

Earlier this year, the ‘Sopranos’ star signed up to play the mother of ‘Saturday Night Live’ in ‘Bupkis’, a fictionalized version of his life.

According to Peacock, the comedy series will “combine grounded storytelling with absurd elements from the unfiltered and completely original worldview that Pete is known for.”

Davidson, 28, has been on the market since August when he and Kardashian, 41, broke up after nine months of dating.

The former couple had a stormy relationship with a performance at the Met Gala, vacationing in Australia and spending time with Kardashian’s kids. However, the reality star’s ex-husband, Kanye West, was constantly trolling the comedian, derisively calling him “Skete”.

Ye, 45, released a music video for “Eazy” in March in which he kidnapped and buried a cartoon version of Davidson. He also rapped about “beat[ing] Pete Davidson’s Ass’ in the song.

Kardashian is just the most recent A-lister to date the “King of Staten Island” star.

He was previously linked to Emmy nominee Margaret Qualley and “Bridgerton” breakout Phoebe Dynevor and was briefly engaged to Ariana Grande.

Falco, meanwhile, is no stranger to celebrities either, as she rubbed elbows with the likes of Mick Jagger, Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Cynthia Nixon, Peter Gallagher and Ethan Hawke on the opening night of “Leopoldstadt.”

Tom Stoppard’s play, directed by Patrick Marber, has a limited run on Broadway.
