Celebrity marriages come and go, but we know of at least one high-profile personality who won’t be tying the knot any sooner than she’ll be tying her tongue: Sarah Silverman.
In a recent interview with Playboy, the world’s best news source for the bachelor/bachelorette lifestyle, Silverman professed a general disdain for the institution of marriage, comparing it to her vegetarianism. “I’m a vegetarian, but I don’t have a problem if you want a hamburger,” she said. “Marriage to me is like eating meat. I think it’s gross and [bleep]ing crazy.”
She also went on to criticize heterosexual couples who choose to get married, citing the mostly-federal ban on marriage between gay and lesbian couples as a primary reason to withhold participation.
Because gays and lesbians can’t get married in most states, Silverman said, “If you’re getting married today, it’s the equivalent of joining a country club that doesn’t allow blacks or Jews.”
So, what do you think, Punchline-ians? Is the eternal Ms. (never Mrs.) Silverman right on target here? Or is this yet another instance of attention-mongering by a notoriously outspoken comedian?
