Alan Cumming Returned His OBE To The Palace Because He Doesn’t Want To Be Associated With “The Toxicity Of Empire”
That’s Plain Old Alan Cumming to you, pal! Don’t you dare call him Sir, Dame, Esquire, Baron, Earl, Marquis, Viscount, or Duke while that one is on the throne? Not that Alan’s newly shed designation as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or OBE, entitled him to use any of those titles, but it’s the principle that counts. People reports that as a gift to himself of the occasion of his 58th birthday, Alan returned the title bestowed upon him by THE QUEEN in 2009 in recognition of his work as an actor and advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. Apparently, that OBE doesn’t hit the same when the figurehead of the British Empire is an absolute clown.
Finally, a mensch. A mensch among mens. Yes, in THIS economy! Michael Sheen has been doing some karmic housekeeping of late and has decided to become a “not for profit” actor in order to be able to fund various charitable causes in his home country of Wales. Maybe he saw all the work his ex Kate Becksindale has been doing with wayward youth and didn’t want to be outshone. According to BBC, Michael sold two houses, one in LA and one in Wales, in order to fund the 2019 Homeless World Cup after its funding fell through at the last minute. After that he looked around and was like, wait, I’m still not broke? Let me do this some more!
The only thing I’ve ever been given by Queen Elizabeth was a response to a letter I wrote her about god knows what. I was about seven, so I was likely asking her if she is allowed to stay up late to watch The Simpson’s. I’ve never been mad at The Queen for any reason, so I don’t know what I would do with that letter (I’m kidding, I’d absolutely sell it on eBay). Michael Sheen got something from The Queen in 2009; she presented him with the Order of the British Empire. And when Michael decided it was no longer the honor it once was, he knew exactly what he wanted to do with it. Michael Sheen packed it up and sent it back to Her Majesty.
Michael Sheen and his Swedish actress girlfriend Anna Lundberg are now parents to a newborn girl, according to Micheal Sheen’s father, Meyrick. Michael and Anna had only been together before a few months before the pregnancy news broke, and Michael had to drag some people via Twitter when they claimed he wasn’t single when met Anna. That said, they seem to be going strong and are of course are “over the moon” about their new baby.
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.
50-Year-Old Michael Sheen Is Dating 25-Year-Old Swedish Actress Anna Lundberg (UPDATE: She’s Pregnant)
Michael Sheen is dating a woman half his age, “aspiring” Swedish actress Anna Lundberg. In fact, every time Michael Sheen gets a new girlfriend, she seems to be a full ten years younger than the previous girlfriend. Michael dated Sarah Silverman (48) for 4 years, breaking up in 2017. Then he dated Come Fly With Me actress Aisling Bea (35), from April 2018 to early 2019 and now he’s with a 25-year-old. Anna is only 5 years older than his daughter, Lily Mo Sheen whom he shares with Kate Beckinsale.
Kate recently broke up with Pete Davidson, who is also 25 years old. If they all spend the holidays together, their dinners are probably made up of Kate and Michael’s current piece explaining how TikTok works to them.
