Sarah Silverman's Breakup Gift From Kate Beckinsale

"Cruel" Kate Beckinsale Gave Sarah Silverman a Gift That's Haunting Her After Michael Sheen Breakup

This week, Sarah Silverman announced her split from Michael Sheen after three years of dating, and now a gift his other ex Kate Beckinsale gave her for Christmas is reminding Sarah of her singledom: Kate gave Sarah a bag of personalized M&M's with a picture of the comedian kissing Michael on the cheek.

"Been ending every night with a microwaved bowl of personalized M&M's given to me by the very thoughtful and very cruel @katebeckinsale to remind me that I'm alone in this world. So very alone. THANKS, KATE. (Seriously they are so good esp melted which is why the microwave)," Sarah captioned the photo before adding a quick update, since people thought Kate sent them to her after the breakup. "I'm seeing stuff on twitter about this and need to clear up I'm KIDDING (good lord) she gave me these for Christmas before M & I broke up!!!!"

Kate responded to Sarah's joke with an equally funny response. "I gave them to you on Christmas! In my house! When you were together! Of course I support you microwaving his head at any time, I just have to make it clear that I'm not actually insane. Love you lady ❤." The two became friends when Sarah started dating Michael in 2014. Kate and Michael dated for eight years after meeting on a touring production of The Seagull in 1995 and have an 18-year-old daughter, Lily, together.

"We get on really well," Kate told The Talk in 2016. "I mean, I love Sarah. I'd love her if she didn't have anything to do with Michael. I'm just glad Michael found her. I think, especially actors for some reason, they think you're throwing shoes at each other and plotting each other's death — we're not. She's lovely."
