This isn’t a good week for relationships! First Michelle Williams and Jason Segel broke up, and now Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen! Is it wrong that I’m okay with them splitting? I never liked them, or understood them as a couple. Now all we need is Ryan Gosling to break up with Eva Mendes, and Ryan and Rachel can get back together once and for all. Is that too much to ask?
Sources confirmed to Us Weekly that the couple, who met on the set of “Midnight in Paris,” have ended their romance.
The pair first took their romance public in October 2010, when they were spotted at a Toronto Film Festival after-party together, and later seen holding hands at an art exhibit.
No reason for the split has been reported, but both parties had previously gushed about their partner. Sheen, 44, told People magazine that McAdams was “talented, intelligent, beautiful. She’s warm and friendly. She’s very supportive, and very kind, very funny. She makes me laugh a lot,” he told the magazine when the couple finally admitted they were dating in May 2011.
The split comes as a surprise since it appeared as though the couple knew how to make things work. In January 2012, the 34-year-old actress told Stella magazine that the secret to her successful relationship with Sheen was to spend sufficient time together, saying “Michael and I never spend more than three weeks apart … but you have to be quite adaptable in this business whether you are in a relationship or not.”
Before dating McAdams, Sheen was with actress Kate Beckinsale for eight years, with whom he has a 14-year-old daughter, while McAdams dated her “The Notebook” co-star Ryan Gosling for two years, and was engaged to him for a short time before breaking up in 2007.
I don’t understand the appeal of Michael Sheen. He must have a very good personality. How one goes from Ryan Gosling to Michael Sheen is beyond me. Too bad Channing is married. Imagine how hot Rachel and Channing would be together!
Who else can we pick for Rachel???
