Sarah Silverman Says Boyfriend Michael Sheen's Okay with Her Using Their Sex Life in Her Comedy: 'Because No One Will Believe It's True'

Originally posted 05/17/2016 10:05AM

Comedian Sarah Silverman confesses that one of the reasons her boyfriend Michael Sheen makes a great romantic partner for her is that he doesn't mind if she uses their real-life relationship quirks as fodder for her standup material.

"I have so much material about him, and he's always great about it," Silverman, 45, told PEOPLE as the couple attended a special awards consideration screening of Masters of Sex.

"One, he's not going to like inhibit my art and my process, and I appreciate that," explained Silverman, who's renowned for her outrageously risqué, scatological, taboo-testing and frequently sexually charged standup routines. "But also because he said, 'No one will ever believe that it's true. No one will ever believe that everything you're saying is exactly true.' "

"So I said, 'Yeah, you're right' – except now, when I'm telling PEOPLE magazine it's all true!" she laughed.
