Sarah Silverman is getting through her breakup with Michael Sheen with help from the latter’s ex Kate Beckinsale.
Beckinsale and Silverman formed a close and unlikely friendship through their now mutual ex. When Silverman announced earlier this week she had split from Sheen last year, Beckinsale decided to cheer her up and jokingly reminder her how alone the comedian was.

Been ending every night with a microwaved bowl of personalized m&ms. ** **I’m saw stuff on twitter about this and lemme clear up I was KIDDING (good lord) she gave me these for Christmas before M & I broke up It was the best Xmas gift ever and still is see what happened was I posted such a poorly crafted joke that I accidentally framed my sis @katebeckinsale 🐴🐴🐴🐴🐴
Silverman, 47, then told fans how long they should microwave M&Ms for the perfect chocolatey treat: “41 seconds on a flat plate. In my small narrow bowl, I go 1:11.”
Beckinsale opened up about her friendship with Silverman on “The Talk” in 2016. “We get on really well. I mean, I love Sarah,” said Beckinsale. “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.”
Silverman announced her breakup on Monday via Twitter, informing fans she and Sheen had “consciously uncoupled” due to challenges from living in different countries.
