Once upon a time, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling did a little movie called The Notebook together and won the hearts of romantics everywhere as they fell in love on screen… and off! Alas, their love was not to be long term, which is a shame because they make a damn good looking couple and Eva Mendes is kinda weird, but that’s besides the point. Rachel and Ryan have remained friends since their split, and now that Rachel has broken up with Michael Sheen, she’s apparently got Ryan back on her speed dial and has been hitting him up at all hours, much to Eva’s chagrin.
From Now (via DigitalSpy):
“Rachel’s always kept in touch with Ryan, but now that she’s split with Michael, she’s been calling him and using him as a shoulder to cry on.
“It hasn’t gone down very well with Eva, to say the least, but Ryan wants to be there as a friend for his ex.”
I mean, I get it, I guess – if my partner’s ex was calling non-stop, I’d have to say something – or a few choice somethings – to bring an end to it. On the other hand, these are celebrities so I can throw my morality out the window when I say: Rachel + Ryan 4 Ever! Bring back Rychel!

Rachel McAdams aka “Regina George Forever And Ever Even Though She’s Done Other Popular Good Stuff Too” and Michael Sheen AKA “The Guy Who Played Tony Blair Once But Did Other Stuff Too” are breaking up. What is with all these breakups? Oh well, now we can all be sad and lonely together. There were rumors that in April of last year that they were engaged. Sad.
The couple met on the set of Woody Allen‘s Midnight In Paris, a film in which they apparently were both in. I remember The lovely Ms. McAdams, but I don’t remember Mr. Not Charlie Sheen at all. Sorry, bro. They’ve been together since 2010. It sounds like their relationship succumbed to the same thing that killed the Jason Segel & Michelle Williams union: long distance.
In January, McAdams told The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine (via US Weekly),
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.
Damn, that sucks.
P.S. That photo isn’t a still from a movie. That’s just them saying goodbye at the airport. Right in the feels.

With all of the hullabaloo surrounding Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s engagement, people apparently forgot that there are other couples out there also deserving of attention and appreciation and admiration, and Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen happen to be one of them. Did you guys know that I just love Rachel McAdams? Because I do. If I had to pick my favorite Hollywood pretty lady, it would be Rachel McAdams. She *might* actually be the prettiest lady I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen lots of pretty ladies in my time.
Sources, now, are saying that Michael and Rachel are to be engaged, and that a wedding might be in the works—soon:
A friend of Michael’s tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Michael is planning on proposing to Rachel very soon. They both want to take their relationship to the next level. They are madly in love and want to start a family together.”
But with Michael, 43, hailing from Great Britain and Rachel, 33, calling Canada home, where in the world will the wedding take place?
“They met while filming Midnight in Paris and that’s where they want to get married,” the insider explains.
“Michael says he is still super close to the Twilight cast and thinks Rob and Kristen are two of the most professional and down to earth actors he has ever met,” the source adds. “I am sure he would want them to be at his wedding.”
Whatever’s going on between these two definitely sounds good and believable and hopefully it’ll happen soon and oh my God can you imagine how beautiful a bride Rachel McAdams will make?

I know – most of you guys completely disagreed with me when I’d previously said that I couldn’t understand why someone like my lady love, Rachel McAdams, would date Michael Sheen when she could have men of the likes of Ryan Gosling. And I still kind of feel that way, but only half – see, now that Ryan’s dating Eva Mendes, Rachel’s way too good for him. After much heartfelt soul-searching, I’ve come to the conclusion that I hope Ryan and Rachel never get back together. And they probably won’t, because things don’t usually turn out the way I initially want until later in the game when it’s actually the complete opposite of what I wanted, but have grown to realize that I don’t always want the things that are best for me. But I learn, you know? I live, I learn, and I’ve accepted that my one-time favorite couple isn’t going to reconcile, and I’m finally OK with it because I know that there are greener pastures out there for both of them. Well, for at least one of them, anyway. I don’t know for sure that Eva’s pasture is all that lovely and green, but I can imagine that Rachel is probably just as fresh as a daisy and as lovely as the first rose of summer.
But yes, as reported, Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams are still together, and they’re still going places and looking happy and in love, and I know that I should be content with that, but I want more. If Rachel’s going to be with this guy for a little while longer (and based on all of the times that I’ve seen them, that’s probably the case), then I want to know more about him, guys. I want to know what he does (aside from appear in the Twilight movies, because that character he plays is just damn creepy), what he likes, and why oh why he ever decided to hook up with Kate “Bitchface Crazypants” Beckinsale. I just can’t correlate the two ladies. From Beckinsale to McAdams? From bare-faced-ness to bushy-beard-ness?
Honestly, though, I read his Wiki page, and he’s had a lot of pretty impressive accomplishments to stick under his belt, and quotes that I’ve digested word by word are pretty crafty. He seems likable, but I just don’t understand how this coupling came to be. They met on the set of Midnight in Paris back in 2010 (going on two years together, guys – that’s like, forever – and have been inseparable ever since.
I don’t know. I guess I shouldn’t complain. She could be hooking up with Adrien Brody, and I really don’t think I’d be liking that all too much. Thank God for small favors, huh?
What’s your favorite thing about Michael Sheen? Please, enlighten me.

Who would have thought these two would last through the filming of a Woody Allen film? Pssh. Certainly not me. When these two were sucking face (and by “these two” and “sucking face,” I clearly mean “Michael Sheen assaulting ninety percent of the holes on Rachel McAdams’ face”) last year in an airport like the world was going to end the very next day, I also chuffed, saying that the couple wouldn’t last through the month.
Well here they are, together, riding bikes in Canada looking like the loving couple down the block who’s trying to reinvent their lifestyles one healthy habit at a time – Rachel’s shining good health is a perfect complement to her mate’s paunch-bellied, huffing and puffing attempts to keep up.
Nice job keeping it together, guys!
