Rachel McAdams 'splits from Sheen'

Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen have ended their relationship, it has been reported.

According to Us Weekly, the actress and the 44-year-old British star have called time on their relationship after two years together.

The 34-year-old beauty first met Michael when they worked on Woody Allen's critically-acclaimed movie Midnight in Paris in July 2010.

The couple took their relationship public in October of the same year.

The reasons behind the reported break-up are as yet unknown.

It is speculated that the long-distance aspect of their romance may have been a problem.

Rachel spoke about her relationship with Michael in January 2012, explaining their romance came about naturally.

"Michael and I didn't get together while we were filming Midnight in Paris, which I feel strongly about not doing when I'm working. We became quite good friends, which I think is a great way to start," Rachel revealed at the time.

"I felt very blessed to have made a Woody Allen film in Paris together."

The star hinted at difficulties the couple were facing as a result of Michael residing in Los Angeles and Wales, while she is based in Toronto, Canada.

"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," she said.

"Trying to establish roots somewhere is a bit of a joke."

Rachel's last serious relationship was with fellow Canadian actor Ryan Gosling, who she dated from 2005 until 2007.

Following their split, Ryan described her as "one of the great loves of [his] life".

Michael has previously dated actress Kate Beckinsale, who he has a daughter with.
