I love comedian Sarah Silverman, as there’s hardly another person in the entertainment world who ‘tells it like it is’. So, I wasn’t surprised to see her latest stream of tweets on Twitter this morning in response to the ‘news’ story ‘Sarah Silverman is marrying Welsh actor Michael Sheen’. Er…..she’s not, and she has no problems telling you why that is.
According to Sheen in her first tweet:
Just read that I wanna get married which is hilarious b/c I will never get married.

Which is hilarious if you know anything about Sarah as she’s always said she would never get married. Simply doesn’t believe in it — archaic institution, It’s still a religious ‘thing’ in many respects and she’s not, has always said she will never get married until all same-sex couples have the exact same right — you know, the stuff people like me also believe in (do you wonder why I like her so much?)
Which is why, in her second tweet, she went on to say:
Why would I want the govt involved in my love life? Ew. It’s barbaric. — Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) September 21, 2014
She definitely has a point. And, finally, just in case we’re still not sure how she really feels:
That shit never bothers me b/c who cares but I feel like this one is bigoted. The Jew girl MUST want a RING! Yich — Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) September 21, 2014
Well, there is that too. So, thanks Sarah for clarifying that for those who, well………just don’t have a clue. As always, you’re lovely.
