The Sarah Silverman Program’s sporty, taboo-skewering star promises a very gay season and renews her vow to stay unmarried until there’s marriage equality. Find out what Silverman told The Advocate’s Brandon Voss! Some awesome excerpts:
The Advocate: When you and I last spoke in early 2007, we discussed your decision not to get married until all Americans could legally marry. That was in reference to your boyfriend at the time, Jimmy Kimmel, but does that vow also apply to your current and future relationships?
Sarah Silverman: Absolutely. Not only that, but lately I’ve been really annoyed by any liberal person getting married who says they stand for gay rights. How can anyone in good conscience get married right now? How is that different than joining a country club that doesn’t allow Jews or blacks?
The Advocate: After you almost kissed Jessica Biel on the VMAs, some lesbian friends of mine called you a total “cunt-tease,” which is a term I’d never heard before. Thoughts?
Sarah Silverman: I’ve never heard that one either, but I love it! Two of my best friends are lesbians — one from L.A. and one from NYC — and they would never call me that, because I think if either of them imagined me in a sexual way, they’d gag. We’re like sisters. But yeah, I’m pretty much a lesbian in every way other than loving penis. I love Nanci Griffith, Patty Griffin, and Tegan and Sara. I play all sports — I have a b-ball, softball glove, and football in my trunk at all times. Plus anyone would tell you I wear cargo pants daily. When I try to dress up, I look like a tranny.
