Michael Sheen wittily sidestepped when the Daily Beast interviewer tried to stir up some talk about his relationship with Sarah. This is Caryn James talking to Sheen (9/28/14).
CJ: One last question. You got a lot of publicity for having your butt grabbed on the red carpet at the Met Gala.
MS: I didn’t know we got lots of publicity
CJ: It was all over the web.
MS: I don’t remember. I am genuinely unaware of that.
CJ: Okay. I think it was the moment when people said, “Oh yes Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen are a couple because she grabbed his butt on the red carpet at the Met.” There is a photograph of her hand on your butt if you want to look it up online.
MS: I don’t need to. I can have her grab my butt whenever I want.
