It was reported on 17 December 2016 that Sheen had announced he would be taking a break from acting in order to fight the rise of “demagogic, fascistic” politics after being left “sad and frustrated” by Brexit.

Sheen told The Times Magazine: “In the same way as the Nazis had to be stopped in Germany in the Thirties, this thing that is on the rise has to be stopped.” The actor claimed he could bring people together “who wouldn’t normally sit there…even if they just want me to sign their Twilight books for their kids”.

In March 2018 Michael launched the High Cost Credit Alliance - a campaign to help get a fairer deal for the millions of families struggling with debt.

Sheen was in a relationship with English actress Kate Beckinsale from 1995 until 2003.

Michael starred in a trilogy of films as British politician Tony Blair: the television film The Deal (2003), followed by The Queen (2006) and The Special Relationship (2010).

For playing Blair, he was nominated for both a Bafta Award and an Emmy.The pair were spotted together at the Olivier Awards on Sunday night, arriving separately but meeting up at the theatre awards’ afterparty at the Natural History Museum. A source told The Sun: ‘They met through mutual friends and Michael is pretty smitten, telling people he is off the market.’ Frost/Nixon actor Sheen and Aisling, 34, were previously pictured on stage together at last year’s UK Social Enterprise Awards in London, which were hosted by Bea.If rumours of a romance are true, the pair could certainly swap baking tips – Michael won the Great Comic Relief Bake Off back in 2015, while Aisling didn’t fare as well on the Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off last week, struggling with custard and pint-of-Guinness-shaped cupcakes.However, his family did not want to relocate to London and Sheen instead started to pursue a career in the arts.His father was a professional Jack Nicholson lookalike and many of his family performed in amateur theatre and musical productions.He also won a Golden Globe nomination for his role in US TV drama Masters Of Sex.
