I am a trophy boyfriend: Michael Sheen
London, June 4 (IANS) British actor Michael Sheen has joked that he is a “trophy boyfriend” for Hollywood A-listers.
The 47-year-old actor, who has dated actresses Kate Beckinsale and Rachel McAdams, in addition to his current girlfriend Sarah Silverman, has joked that people are only interested in him because of the beautiful women who have surrounded him, reports telegraph.co.uk.
Asked how he has remained so low-key despite his career success, the “Midnight in Paris” star quipped: “I am the trophy boyfriend. It is depressingly easy for me to have a low profile life”.
“It is mainly because people are not interested in me. It is not through any great decision of mine. People tend to only really be interested in me because of who I am with,” Sheen said.
The “Far from the Madding Crowd” actor said it is easy for him to maintain a low profile when so much attention is centered on his more glamorous-looking girlfriends.
“I have been with Kate or Rachel (McAdams, the actress who he dated for two years) or Sarah… That’s when (I get attention). I am not getting papped constantly. No one really gives much of a s*** about me,” he added.
