  • Q: Are there any lines that you won't cross in your comedy? Sarah Silverman: "I would never tell a comedian to not do something. That would be so hypocritical of me. But if I had to pick a topic, I'd say fat jokes about women. We live in a country where we feel fat women don't deserve love, but men do. So those kinds of jokes are a bummer to me.

My boyfriend and I will watch The Bachelor, Real Housewives of New York, and we laugh at it, or whatever, but it just horrifies me to think there might be young impressionable girls who think this is what being a woman is, being a rich conniving backstabbing cunt or someone who is flattered to be one of 25 girls some guy gets to pick from."
