Louis C.K. Performs First Show Since Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Sarah Silverman Addresses #MeToo Allegations Against Friends Louis C.K., Al Franken & Aziz Ansari

Sarah Silverman appears on the cover of GQ‘s annual comedy issue alongside Kate McKinnon and Issa Rae, available on newsstands on May 29.

Here’s what the 47-year-old comedian had to say…

On Louis C.K.: “Life is complicated. Love is even more complicated. But you can’t not do it. I don’t have some definitive sound bite or nutshell of how I feel about it, even to myself. But I’m also okay with that…He’s my brother, so it’s hard. I may not have a very clear perspective on it, but I’m trying to.”

On Al Franken: “He and [his wife] Franni are devastated. I understand that I may have cognitive distortion, because I love him so much. But all I can say is, and he may not be excited about this, but he has no sexuality. I believe in my heart of hearts he never copped a feel…I’ve worked with him for years. I’m so sad that he got bullied into resigning, because all he loved in this world was being a senator. I’ve never met a more pure person.”

On Aziz Ansari: “I was just like, ‘Gross, I don’t wanna know that about Aziz!’ Hopefully he’s dealing with things, looking inward, and will blossom from it.”

Chloe Moretz Addresses Louis C.K. Allegations & 'Me Too' Movement

Chloe Moretz is breaking her silence on Louis C.K.‘s sexual misconduct scandal.

The 20-year-old Miseducation of Cameron Post actress worked with the 50-year-old comedian on his film I Love You, Daddy, which was dropped days before the release in light of the accusations.

“I could single-in and talk about my experience, but I think it’s more important to talk about the entire movement as a whole,” she told Variety at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

“I’m one of hundreds of thousands of women in so many different industries that has a story,” she continued. “You could ask anyone in this room and all of us could give you 10 stories, I’m sure.”

“I think it’s just nice, the communication, and the fact that you asked this question at Sundance in a video suite, this never would have happened two years ago,” she added. “So the fact that it’s a conversation and it’s a question is monumental, and I think that shouldn’t be looked past or looked over. We’ve all been through a lot of stuff, but at least we’re communicating and people are going to be held accountable.”
