So I guess I shouldn’t hold my breath waiting for a Ryan Gosling/Rachel McAdams reunion? Waaaaaah.
Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen announced they had split earlier this week, but according to sources, the split could be temporary.
“It’s likely not permanent. Temporary hiccup,” the source told E!, adding that the pair will likely get back together.
The news of the breakup first emerged early Wednesday, but no specific cause for the split was cited. McAdams and Sheen had dated for two years, and the “Notebook” actress was quoted last year discussing the long-distance traveling the couple must do in order to spend time together.
McAdams and Sheen first met on the set of the Woody Allen comedy “Midnight in Paris,” and they began dating after the film wrapped in 2010. Rumors about the duo’s relationship first began swirling after they were spotted together at a Toronto Film Festival after-party in October of that same year. They waited until May 2011 to officially acknowledge their relationship publicly.
I’m still holding out for a Notebook reunion. You know you are too. I just don’t see her ending up with Michael. I don’t get it.
PEOPLE is offering up the reason why the two of them split in the first place. According to their sources, Rachel wanted to settle down, and Michael didn’t. Yeah, that would ruin it.
“Rachel wants to settle down and is dreaming of having a family. Michael always seemed content with their relationship. Since he already has a daughter [Lily, 14, with Kate Beckinsale], he feels no need to have more children. He wants to focus on his career.”
“They still have some contact and are friendly,” the source adds, but it was their differences that eventually led to the demise of their relationship.
“They tried to work things out, but at the end they just couldn’t agree,” the insider says. “It caused some frustration and they thought it was better to go separate ways.”
Hmm, wonder if Michael will just let her go?
