Sarah Silverman slams ring rumors, claims she won't marry
Sarah Silverman and her Masters of Sex co-star and boyfriend Michael Sheen appear to be happy together, but they won't be headed down the aisle now, or ever!
The comedian took to Twitter on Sunday to blast engagement rumors and a tabloid story that insisted she was pressuring her beau into popping the question.
The actress continued her rant, saying she doesn't want the government involved in her marriage and that these rumors really bug her.
So how did this rumor even start? Star magazine wrote a story in which it claimed Silverman really, really wanted a ring. The publication also claimed the Emmy-winning actress has been leaving "pictures of engagement rings all over the place," which apparently drives Sheen completely crazy.
Sheen and Silverman began their relationship earlier this year after she attended his 45th birthday party, but this is not the first time Silverman has said she does not think much of marriage. During an interview with Playboy in 2010, she also revealed marriage is not something she wants.
"It's just not for me. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage, to me, is like eating meat. I think it's gross and f***ing crazy. It's this superbarbaric, old-timey tradition that no one remembers we don't have to do anymore," she told the magazine.
We're not sure how Sheen feels about the fact that his girlfriend never wants to get married because he has previously walked down the aisle with Kate Beckinsale. The pair were married for eight years before splitting in 2003.
