They say distance makes the heart grow fonder but you know what else it can make grow? Pussy cobwebs and dick dust! Brassy American broad Sarah Silverman and her British thespian boyfriend Michael Sheen broke up over a month ago due to geographical difficulties. Sarah recently made the announcement on Twitter to stop people from constantly asking her “so, how’s Michael?”.
Here’s Sarah’s statement
The great @michaelsheen & I consciously uncoupled over Christmas. I mean, not “over Christmas” – like that wasn’t the fight that ended it. No fight. We just live in different countries & it got hard. Felt we should just tell y’all so u stop askin, “How’s Michael/How’s Sarah?”

According to People, Sarah, appearing on her ex-boyfriend’s show Jimmy Kimmel Live!, referred to Michael as her “on-again, off again lover” because of their frequent continental separation. And knowing Sarah, she pronounced it “luv-uh”. The two started dating back in 2014, not too long after Michael broke up with Rachel McAdams.
Here’s the pair during that fateful Christmas. According to Sarah’s IG, Michael is white blond for a role.
Michael was also in a long term relationship with Kate Beckinsale for 8 years and the two have a 19 year old daughter named Lily together. Sarah says that when Lily turned 18 and went off to college, Michael decided to move back home to Wales where he could be more politically active.
If you watched Masters Of Sex, you’ll remember that Sarah and Michael were both on it but that’s not how they met. People says that the MOS producers already had Sarah in mind for a role but almost didn’t give it to her when they found she was already swapping spit with Michael.
“We met a completely different context, at a show I did,” she said. “They had always had me in mind for Helen, and then we started dating and they went, ‘Oh no!’ So I guess they went to Michael and said, ‘We’ve always wanted to offer this [role] to Sarah Silverman, but now she’s your girlfriend. Is that okay, comfortable for you?’ Obviously, he was like, ‘Yeah!’ ”
Apparently, they had to ask to do a scene together. Michael said:
“So we did say last season, ‘Can we please have a scene together?’ So I gave her a gynecological exam, which was interesting,” he explained.
Aaaaand, we have now reached my limit on the amount of insight any of us needed into Michael and Sarah’s relationship.
