Spotted! Rachel McAdams flirting with Michael Sheen

Spotted! Rachel McAdams flirting with Michael Sheen

Based on her list of ex-beaus, one could assume that Rachel McAdams has a type. Ryan Gosling, Josh Lucas and Jake Gyllenhaal (whom she may or may not have dated after last year’s Oscars) are all cut from the same scruffy high-school-boy cloth. We approve. Except that—sigh—if the latest rumours are true, it looks like Rach may be saying so long to her flannel years and moving on to a more sophisticated type of gent. Specifically, Michael Sheen, the Brit who played Tony Blair in The Queen, David Frost in Frost/Nixon and the other Wesley Snipes on 30 Rock.

Canadian smut queen Elaine Lui reports that McAdams and Sheen met up on Sunday night at the Beautiful Boy after party at Cheval. They talked for over an hour and even cuddled together on a couch. (OK, fine, they sat together on a couch, but we’re sure they were thinking about cuddling.) Or they could have been discussing a future project, but given Rachel’s LBD (a Catwoman costume in dress form), it’s hard to imagine her new pal had acting on the brain. Lui’s smutty sources confirm that the couple is in the early courting stages. We’re not sure about our Rach with this older English gent, although on the plus side, this means more scruffy bearded boys for us.
