New Couple Alert: Rachel McAdams & Michael Sheen

Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen

Is Rachel McAdams writing all about Michael Sheen in her dating notebook?

Last we heard about Rachel McAdams, she was quietly enjoying single life. Over the summer, there were a few whispers that she was dating her Wedding Crashers co-star Owen Wilson on the set of their latest project, Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, but there doesn't seem to be much to those rumors. Especially now that Rachel was just seen over the weekend getting mighty cozy with Hollywood's new It Brit (and Liz Lemon's adorkable "settling soulmate"), Michael Sheen.

According to Lainey Gossip, Rachel attended the screening and afterparty for Michael's new movie, Beautiful Boy. (Maybe she thought it was a documentary on Ryan Gosling?) Rachel was looking particularly lovely, rocking a Carrie Bradshaw-esque 'do better than Carrie ever did. Apparently, someone introduced Michael to Rachel and sparks flew. The two soon moved from the center of the action to a couch, where they sat together and talked only to each other. They moved their conversation from the couch to the bar and back to the couch, occasionally talking to other party-goers, but never leaving each other's side. Rachel McAdams On Her Lacking Love Life

So, were the pair just talking shop or is this the start of a new romance? Lainey says, "By the time I left, they’d been together like that for over an hour. So of course I asked around. Heard from a couple of sources yesterday that it’s early days in the courtship but they’re definitely checking each other out. Cute, right?"

Definitely cute!
