‘Masters of Sex’: Is Michael Sheen dating Sarah Silverman?

Masters of Sex -Mrs. Carter: Michael Sheen’s love life may officially be going in a better direction than his “Master of Sex” character William Masters.

The news coming out today is that Sheen, who was married to Kate Beckinsale for years and even shares a daughter with her, is now apparently in the early stages of a relationship with comic Sarah Silverman (and not Lizzy Caplan, who is pictured with him in the attached image from the show). Us Weekly┬áreports that the two were spotted together while at the actor’s 45th birthday party recently, which was attended by such people as Caplan, Beckinsale, and a number of other big-name stars. The two parties reportedly left together, which basically was yet another sign that there is indeed something going on here.

Silverman of course has her own extensive dating history, with the most famous man in her past being Jimmy Kimmel, who she was together with for many years to the point that they often made fun of each other on his ABC series. The two do seem to maintain a cordial relationship, given that she has gone back on his show since and has gamely taken advantage of the chance to tell some more jokes about their time together.

Sheen has to enjoy some of his free time now, given that later this year will be very busy working on “Masters of Sex” season 2. The series immediately became a favorite of critics upon its arrival to television, and has a lengthy story to tell now of Masters’ next move now that he has basically admitted to Virginia Johnson that he has deeper feelings for her beyond the study. This show will return to Showtime later this year.
