Sarah Silverman Covers 'Paper' May 2010

Sarah Silverman Covers 'Paper' May 2010

Sarah Silverman poses with a bird on the cover of Paper magazine’s May 2010 issue, on newsstands next week.

Here’s what the 39-year-old comedian had to share:

On writing her new memoir The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee: “In the beginning I wrote with such a furrowed brow, the way I thought writers should write. I had to throw a lot of that away… Writing is so lonely….You learn to give yourself rewards every time you make any kind of stride. Like, ‘Oh, I deserve a nap.’”

On Silverlake hipsters: “This neighborhood is too cool for me. I live in an old-people neighborhood. My building, my neighbors — all old people. I pass [hipsters] on the tennis court with my dog and heckle them.”

On meeting her boyfriend, Alec Sulkin: “I had dinner with some friends, washed my face, brushed my teeth, got into bed with my laptop, and saw that he had written me. So I just wrote, ‘Do you want to come over and feel my forehead until I fall asleep?’ and he emailed back and said, ‘Yes.’ So I gave him my address and then thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s coming to murder me,’ and I was thinking of that scene in Election when Matthew Broderick is about to have a sexual encounter and he goes home and washes his balls really fast.” He arrived half an hour later, knocked on the door, extended his hand and said, “Hi, I’m Alec.”
