Beckinsale has dated other comedians on and off, but nothing serious, since her divorce from Len Wiseman in 2016. Beckinsale was celebrating her DuJour magazine cover when she was asked what her ideal man would be like.

"We are delighted that the victor is a South Carolinian and has come forward to claim this remarkable prize, " said Hogan Brown, the Commission's Executive Director.

The winning ticket was sold October 23, 2018 at the KC Mart #7 at 303 Lee Vaughn Road in Simpsonville, about 90 miles northwest of Columbia in Greenville County, The State reported. The State of SC will benefit from $61 million that will be collected in income taxes from the victor. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot to go unclaimed was a $68 million prize in 2002.

Had that person invested in the stock market since October, that rate of return could have been up to 7 percent, or almost $20 million, he told the paper.

If the prize had gone unclaimed by the April 19 deadline, the $1.5 billion would have been redistributed to the 44 states - along with D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands - that take part in the Mega Millions.

The statement Monday gave no clue as to why the victor took his or her time to come forward.
