Rachel McAdams: I'm Never Apart from Michael Sheen for More Than Three Weeks

The actress gushes about her man and shares their relationship secrets: "You need to trust each other and be best friends."

Rachel McAdams is happily dating her Midnight in Paris costar Michael Sheen, but she's quick to explain that they didn't hook up until after the movie wrapped.

"Michael and I didn't get together while we were filming Midnight in Paris, which I feel strongly about not doing when I'm working. We became quite good friends, which I think is a great way to start," McAdams, 33, tells The Daily Telegraph's Sunday magazine. "I felt very blessed to have made a Woody Allen film in Paris together."

McAdams, whose last high-profile relationship was with Ryan Gosling, her The Notebook costar, admits that the downside of being with another actor is dealing with the distance, but she and Sheen, 42, make a point to see each other at least once a month.

"Michael and I never spend more than three weeks apart -- we rack up a lot of air miles -- but you have to be quite adaptable in this business whether you are in a relationship or not," the Vow actress says. "Trying to establish roots somewhere is a bit of a joke."

The Canadian actress was serious about favoring romance based on friendship. Her big tip for a successful relationship? "You need to trust each other and be able to talk to each other and be best friends."
