Sarah Silverman appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show last night, for the purpose of promoting her own show, I Love You, America, through this interview.

Not unprecedented, Sarah was successful in her pursuit, once again, to make her former boyfriend wriggle, fidget, blush and be discomfited. In response to Kimmel’s query about her love life, the I Smile Back actress poked fun at Kimmel, and said, “What’s going on with me dating-wise? I’m waiting for this tryst with you to be over!”

While Kimmel has been married to Molly McNearney, who also happens to be his co-head writer for his show Jimmy Kimmel Live, Sarah Silverman was not reluctant to insinuate that there may be a silver lining for his past love story with her. She joked that the two of them might find their way back to each other.

She said, “I mean, OK, Molly is cute. She’s bright, she’s funny, she’s blonde—whatever! But come on! You’ve got the kids, you’ve got the marriage…all right. Work it through! You think she’s going to wipe your ass when you’re old?”

Kimmel, in sync with Sarah’s witticism, retorted, “I don’t do it now, so why would she?”

“It’s not fair! She gets, like, new woke Jimmy,” Silverman responded. “I had Man Show Jimmy.”

After teasing Kimmel, Sarah returned to the topic of her love life, and stated that she has not been in a serious relationship post her break up with Michael Sheen last Christmas.

“As you know, he moved back to the U.K. His life is really there, and my life is really not there. But I love him to pieces. But if he’s in town and we’re both single, we will make love,” she said.

“But he dated someone for a beat during that time when we hung out, and we were just bros. I’m good at separating that, you know? I can’t imagine you as a sexual being anymore.”

“Really?” Kimmel questioned. “You don’t have to make the yuck face!”

“I really, really thought about it,” Sarah said, while her facial expressions showed that she really was contemplating the matter. “But you’re handsome! You look gorgeous! You look like a model. You’re doing your beard on what, a two?”

“We have the same setting,” Kimmel quipped. “It’s one of the things we have in common!”
