Michael Sheen may be playing an arrogant, slightly egoistical obstetrician and sex researcher Dr. William “Bill” Masters on Showtime’s “Masters Of Sex,” but when it comes to his personal life, he is frequently made fun of by his loved ones.
Sheen told talk show host Chelsea Handler in an interview on her Netflix series “Chelsea” that his ex-girlfriend Kate Beckinsale, his current girlfriend Sarah Silverman 17-year-old daughter Lily usually gang up and make fun of him.
“ Our relationship now is probably better than it ever was,” Sheen told Chelsea. “And it helps that she actually likes Sarah more than she likes me.”
The 47-year-old actor then explained, “It actually works out pretty well. The only way it doesn’t work out is that now I have not only Sarah [Silverman], but also Kate [Beckinsale] and my daughter Lily who all just make fun of me and embarrass me at any given point.”
The Welsh actor then goes on to cite an example. He explained that once he was giving Beckinsale a ride and dropped his keys underneath the vehicle. While crawling and fishing for it, his ex-girlfriend recorded the whole ordeal on her phone. The video also had images of his buttocks. By the time he found the keys, the “Underworld” actress has sent the video to Silverman and her daughter Lily.
Watch the interview below:
Sheen and Beckinsale started dating from 1995 to 2003. They have a daughter named Lily. Although there was some drama surrounding their breakup, the two split amicably. Sheen then went on to date comedian Sarah Silverman. Incidentally, Silverman also had a guest role in “Masters Of Sex.” She played Betty’s (Annaleigh Ashford) lover Helen.
The BAFTA award winner told Chelsea in the interview that Beckinsale and Silverman get along well.
“Masters Of Sex” is currently airing on Sundays at 10 p.m. EDT on Showtime.
