Michael Sheen misses Britain

Michael Sheen misses the UK.

The 'Masters of Sex' actor spends the majority of his time in the US with his comedian girlfriend Sarah Silverman but returns home as much as possible because it is where all of his friends and family live, and tries to keep up to date with events in Britain while abroad.

Sheen explained: "I come back to Britain as much as I possibly can. The rest of my family are there and my friends and I miss it hugely and try to stay as connected as I possibly can while over here."

The 46-year-old star - who was born in Newport, Wales, and studied at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art - admitted he will continue to live in the US for the next few years at least because his "priority" is spending time with his 16-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen, who he had with his former partner actress Kate Beckinsale, before she leaves home.

Referring to being with the teenager, he told The Times newspaper: "That's my priority. She'll be going off to college fairly soon so that will free me up, I won't have to be here."
