Sarah Silverman has said she's looking
for an apology from gay marriage foes.
Speaking to reporters at Sunday's
Tribeca Film Festival screening of Take This Waltz, Silverman,
41, eagerly discussed a non-sexual nude shower scene she shares in
the film with co-star Michelle Williams.
“The actual day wasn't bad,” The
Hollywood Reporter quoted Silverman as saying. “It was
very supportive and you forget it once you do it, but the morning
leading up to it, I overgroomed.”
“You never see nudity that is not in
a sexual way, so this is that. And I'm in it and ego-wise it's
horrifying, but if I can take myself out of it, I think it's amazing.
It's jarring. It's genuinely jarring because it's not funny, it's
not sad, it's not dramatic, it's kind of every day life.”
Gay marriage, she said, “is something
that Newark Mayor Cory Booker said it best: Some things are not meant
to be a vote. Some things are a right. And if things like that were
left for a vote, he said, I wouldn't be where I am today – meaning
anything that is civil rights. Because people don't always know
what's best. Their fears keep them from being open and being fair.
And so that would just be not up for a vote.”
“Gay marriage, legal, with a big
fucking apology for the past few years,” she added.
