Michael Sheen is that cerebral sort of British actor whom you wouldn’t think would find himself embroiled in scandal. For god’s sakes, he’s got an afro and a thick beard! He looks like your Physics professor. You wouldn’t place him as a nanny-fucking Jude Law-type. Alas, when you’re 50 and you impregnate a 25-year-old “aspiring actress,” people take an interest. Especially when you might have been with your previous ladyfriend while getting with the new one. “No, I bloody well didn’t!” Sheen tweeted in response on Friday. Or something to that effect.
People reports on Sheen addressing the rumor that he was still with Irish actress Aisling Bea, 35, when he began a relationship with 25-year-old Swedish actress Anna Lundberg, who is now carrying his baby.
It’s a shame when a successful actor just wants to focus on his craft and putting it to women who are much younger than him and people start flapping their gums and making it difficult for him.
Wouldn’t normally respond to this kind of thing but for the sake of people I love and who have more important things to focus on right now – I was single from the beginning of last summer until I met my partner Anna who is now going to have our baby. Just for the record. Thanks.

Well, that takes care of that. This is why he plays an angel on Good Omens. He’s without sin!
Sheen tweeted the announcement that he and Lundberg were expecting a baby last month. He also has a 20-year-old daughter, Lily Mo, with his ex Kate Beckinsale. That must be awkward at holidays (which they spend together – Sheen and Beckinsale and the daughter and now, I assume, dad’s new chick). Or maybe not – they’re so close in age that they can probably really relate to each other. That is, until it’s bedtime and Anna strolls off with her father. That must be a “gross!” moment for Lily Mo.
