For your Emmy award-winning HBO special, We Are Miracles, you rocked a jean shorts-and-tights ensemble. I’d cop that look.
It’s funny, because I’ll say to my boyfriend, “You see what I’m wearing? You’re gonna see a whole bunch of little girls wearing this next year.” I’m wearing what Janeane Garofalo wore in 1995. I like the shorts and tights. I feel super comfortable in them; I feel sexual in them. My thighs are free. I’m not thinking about what they look like in jeans or pants. I also want to bring back the skort. I have one skort that I love. I can be free in it and run if I need to and sit like a regular person. (more…)

Video: Sarah blew Mad Men

Posted by Gator on March 6th, 2015

In the promotional run-up to the start of the final episodes of AMC’s Mad Men, a series of video clips of celebrities talking about the show is out. In Sarah’s, she talks about having ridiculed her friend (and Man Men star), Jon Hamm, when he suggested her for a role back when the show began.

Siding with Arquette, Sarah calls reporter cunt

Posted by Gator on March 3rd, 2015

In this article posted Sunday (3/1/15), Cosmopolitan sought a reaction from Sarah to the fashion police controversy, in which Giuliana Rancic ended up publicly apologizing for her offensive comments about Zendaya’s Oscars dreadlocks.  Of course Sarah, who last appeared on the Fashion Police post-Oscars show with Joan Rivers in 2013, defended Rancic’s presumed attempt at humor because, “it’s Fashion Police. It’s jokes!”  But after reading Zendaya’s comments, Sarah amended hers.  Perhaps most interesting in the Cosmo article is what Sarah said about a whole different topic: Patricia Arquette’s Oscar acceptance speech comments about equal pay for women. Sarah resented New York Post Andrea Peyser’s February 26 column criticizing Arquette as being “self absorbed,” and insisting “most women are doing just fine.” Sarah was exasperated at the comments “that cunt wrote.” After all, Sarah was instrumental in raising public awareness of the pay inequality issue through her hilarious but incisive public service video on the subject.

In a span of a week, Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Zendaya’s Oscars dreadlocks — that they made the singer look like she smelled of patchouli oil or weed — prompted an eloquent message from Zendaya, an apology from Giuliana, and the surprise departure of Fashion Police staple Kelly Osbourne, who was outraged by the controversial joke from the get-go.

At last night’s taping of Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars, which will air March 8, Sarah Silverman weighed in on the whole mess. “I love Fashion Police, I’ve been watching it since Joan [Rivers] hosted it,” she told Cosmopolitan.com. “I’m not a fashion person, but I am interested in [fashion]. It’s art, you know?” 

Her initial response to the backlash against Giuliana was to dismiss it as an overreaction. “I saw her apologize to the camera, and I go, ‘Good lord! It’s Fashion Police. It’s jokes!'” she said. “Then I looked up what Zendaya wrote, and it was beautiful. So in a way it’s a win-win, because it’s hard to apologize for jokes when it’s a fashion show, but at the same time, it made Zendaya write that, and what she wrote was really beautiful and opened my eyes.” 

The fact that the show is in hot water at the same time celebrities like Reese Witherspoon have been advocating for red carpet reporters to ask women about more than what they are wearing raises questions about whether Fashion Police is even relevant anymore. If people really want E! correspondents to #AskHerMore on the carpet, will they want to hear those same correspondents pick women apart for their fashion choices the next day?

Sarah’s thoughts on the #AskHerMore movement are equally measured. “I agree in a lot of ways, but also, if you’re being lent fancy pieces of art that you wear and they ask you what you’re wearing and you say — it’s advertising, it’s selling soap to a degree, it’s promoting designers. That’s what it is! Make no bones about it. If you’re doing an interview for Harper’s and they ask ‘What are you wearing?’ that would be insulting, I suppose. But you have to consider what this is and everything.”

Then, being the glorious wonder that she is, Sarah went on a little tangent. “I’m a great proponent of women’s causes and women’s rights, and I loved what Patricia Arquette said [in her Oscars’ speech, about wage equality]. Did you see that thing in the Post yesterday that cunt wrote? Not ‘cunt’ — uh, woman with a different opinion than my own. To just go, ‘She’s a rich celebrity.’ Jesus, the fuckingPost. She’s not speaking on behalf of herself, she’s speaking on behalf of all women.”
