For playing Blair, he was nominated for both a Bafta Award and an Emmy.
He was also nominated for a Bafta as the troubled comic actor Kenneth Williams in BBC Four's 2006 Fantabulosa!
Here's the lowdown on his Hollywood career and his relationships...
Michael Sheen was born on February 5, 1969 and is a Welsh actor who's also known for his political activism.
Sheen has said of Beckinsale: "She will always be one of the most important people in my life.
I have real love for her." Sheen had a long-distance relationship with English ballet dancer Lorraine Stewart from late 2004 until mid-2010.
In fact, to this day, there are some fans out there still wishing and praying that they'll get back together.
The 49-year-old has become better known as a screen actor since the 2000s, in particular through his roles in various biopics.
Michael starred in a trilogy of films as British politician Tony Blair: the television film The Deal (2003), followed by The Queen (2006) and The Special Relationship (2010).
Sheen told The Times Magazine: “In the same way as the Nazis had to be stopped in Germany in the Thirties, this thing that is on the rise has to be stopped.” The actor claimed he could bring people together “who wouldn’t normally sit there…even if they just want me to sign their Twilight books for their kids”.
He said he was expecting a backlash against the decision, saying: “It will be a big change for how people relate to me. “As soon as you start to be effective, then people try to crush you, because it’s dangerous.” In 2015 he gave a speech in Wales in defence of free healthcare, telling the crowd: “There is never an excuse to not speak up for what you think is right.” Sheen has made trips around Wales, the Midlands and the Basque country in Spain to find examples of community projects that could be adopted in Port Talbot.
