Michael Sheen must have a thing for funny women as he is reportedly dating Irish comedian Aisling Bea just months after his split from longtime girlfriend Sarah Silverman.
The couple dated for four years, and Sarah confirmed the split via a tweet seen below.
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?”

The Welsh actor reportedly moved back to the U.K. after his daughter went to university, and the distance ended up being too much for the couple.
Just barely three months after the announcement of the split, Michael Sheen was seen getting cozy with the young Irish star at the Oliver Awards in London over the weekend.
While they didn’t arrive together or walk the carpet together, reports claim that the pair remained by each other’s side throughout the night
Aisling shared her Irish pride in an Instagram from the evening as she posed in a stunning black and white patterned dress.
