Michael Sheen admits for the first time, that he and Rachel are a couple at the NYC premiere of their new film ‘Midnight in Paris’ and he couldn’t stop gushing to Hollywoodlife.com about what made him fall in love!
“We first met in Paris and had a wonderful time … we’ve been together for a while now,” Michael revealed to us at the screening hosted by The Cinema Society & Thierry Mugler. “She loves good food and good wine … same as me! We had lots of great meals together. Not just me and Rachel but a few of us all. It was a very pleasurable time, very enjoyable.”
Michael, 42, and Rachel,32, actually met in Paris on the set while filming but he reveals that they didn’t start dating until later in her hometown of Toronto.
So what else really makes their relationship work? “She gives me the time of day,” Michael jokes. “We have a great time. We laugh a lot and I think that’s really important.”
Michael and his ex-wife Kate Beckinsale divorced in 2003 and they have a 12-year-old daughter named Lily Mo Sheen together. But when asked if wedding bells are in the near future for himself and Rachel, he just smiled and quipped, “Come on, give us a chance.”
