Star calls boyfriend’s actress ex a ‘pig’ on social media

We have learned by now to take a lot of the crazy things Sarah Silverman comes out with as a joke, but the actress and comedienne had us gearing up for a mega celebrity feud with her latest Instagram post.

Sarah, who is currently dating actor Michael Sheen, appeared to take a rather nasty dig at Michael’s ex, Kate Beckinsale, in her latest Instagram post.

Sharing a picture of herself in front of a big screen featuring Kate’s face, the 43-year-old wrote: “I can’t believe my boyfriend ever dated this PIG.”

Before you jump to conclusions though, Sarah’s Instagram post was all in the name of comedy!

Indeed, Sarah recently spoke of her ‘love’ for the Underworld actress, who has a 15-year-old daughter from her marriage to Sheen.


I can't believe my boyfriend ever dated this PIG

Appearing on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show, Sarah said that far from being intimidated by Sheen’s string of beautiful exes, she takes it as a compliment.

“No, it’s more like, ‘Look at all these beautiful women and he loves me.’ It’s more like that, like, ‘Wow!’” she said.

Referring to Kate, Sarah added: “I love her. She’s hilarious…She’s really cool.”

Phew! That’s one potential catfight we can cross off the list!
