Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen have decided to end their relationship after two years together.
Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen, who went public with their romance in October 2010, are said to have called time on their romance, according to Usmagazine.com.
Rachel McAdams, 34, and 44-year-old British actor Michael Sheen first met when they worked together on Woody Allen’s critically-acclaimed Midnight In Paris.
The reasons behind the reported break-up are as yet unknown.
Speaking previously about the relationship, Rachel McAdams had said that while the long-distance aspect of their romance was difficult, they did their best to manage it.
Rachel McAdams lives in Toronto, Canada, while Michael Sheen divides his time between his native Wales and Los Angeles.
She said: “Michael and I never spend more than three weeks apart – we rack up a lot of air miles – but you have to be quite adaptable in this business whether you are in a relationship or not.
“Trying to establish roots somewhere is a bit of a joke.”
Rachel McAdams added that the key to the couple’s successful relationship is communication, adding: “You need to trust each other and be able to talk to each other and be best friends.”
Meanwhile, Michael Sheen has previously said that Rachel McAdams is a “genuinely lovely lady, as well as being stunningly beautiful and very talented”.
However, their relationship was not all been plain sailing, as Michael Sheen revealed he quit Twitter last October because of cruel comments about why such a beautiful woman would date him.
He said at the time: “I don’t need to read those things. It was just abuse, people writing stupid things, as people do.
“On the one hand Twitter gives you the opportunity to engage with people, which is great, but on the other there are people who feel they can say whatever they want, put poison out there, really, without fear of any repercussions.”
While Michael Sheen has a 14-year-old daughter Lily from his 8-year relationship with Kate Beckinsale, Rachel McAdams’ most famous former romance was with Ryan Gosling, to whom she was briefly engaged before their split in 2007.
