Leaving Arclight Cinema in Hollywood on Monday night after a screening of Whiplash
During a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Silverman was quizzed about her ten-month romance with Welsh actor Michael Sheen.
Stern remarked upon Silverman's recent weight loss and wondered whether she felt pressure to "look good," given Sheen's continuing close friendship with Kate Beckinsale. Stern described Beckinsale as "one of the most physcially beautiful women you've ever seen ... like, stunningly beautiful."
Silverman responded: "That is not like him, at all! It's more like, “Look at all these beautiful women and he loves me!” It's more like that. Like, “Wow!” He and Kate are like brother and sister. I love her. She's hilarious... She's really, really cool. They're really funny together."
In another recent appearance, Silverman and Sheen were interviewed together for The Nerdist podcast, where they chatted about their first date (a tennis match) and pet hates (Sheen's love of dodgy puns).
When Sheen praised his "funny and smart" 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey, Silverman jokingly interrupted: "Why don't you fuck her?!"
Asked about their plans for later that night, Silverman quipped, "We're going to have a fight about Tina Fey on the ride home."
