He told The Guardian in 2010: & # 39; I think being older is the most challenging thing you do. That is why we are here. It is the core of what it is to be a human.
& # 39; It is the ultimate experience because it questions everything about who you are. But it is difficult.
& # 39; My job often takes me away from my daughter, Lily, so when I am with her, time is very important. & # 39;

The actor was previously linked to Aisling Bea in April 2018 when the couple attended the Olivier Awards in London, but did not run the red carpet together.
They later confirmed their romance by sharing an online photo of those attending a charity event for refugees in New York.

Michael & # 39; s ex-girlfriend, American comedian Sarah Silverman, 48, later revealed that he had disappeared from Aisling in September 2018.
However, the former flames were photographed together in December 2018, before continuing with actor Andrew Garfield, 36, in March 2019 after his split from singer Rita Ora, 28.
Michael has dated Sarah for up to four years December 2017, with the end of the relationship because he wanted to go back to Britain.
The actor had been living in Hollywood for more than ten years, but returned to the UK when his daughter Lily turned 18 and went to college at New York University.

He said that he and Sarah in & # 39; different ways & # 39; felt that they both wanted to get & # 39; more involved & # 39; in the political climate following the election of Brexit and Donald Trump.
"It led me to address issues that I thought led some people to vote as they did about the Brexit in the area where I come from and others like it," he said.
& # 39; I felt the responsibility to do something, but it meant that I had to come back – which was difficult for us because we were very important to each other. But we both acknowledge that we all had to do what we had to do. & # 39;
Sarah also spoke lovingly about her ex and former co-star of Masters Of Sex in an interview shortly after the split and admitted that long distance was to blame for saying goodbye to manners.
