Comedienne Sarah Silverman attended the Emmy Awards on Monday night and brought some marijuana to smoke during the ceremony.

During an interview with E! News host Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet, Silverman, 43, showed the reporter the contents of her purse, which included make-up, her driver's license, and a marijuana vapor pen.

There's 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' In The Hilarious Redband Trailer

1/30/2014 7:03pm EST
A Million Ways To Die In The West
There's A Million Ways to die in the West isn't just the title of Seth MacFarlane's upcoming comedy, it's a pretty accurate description of the film itself.

In the premiere red-band (R-rated) trailer, Seth MacFarlane's character Albert loathes the fact that everything is deadly in Arizona in the late 1800s. However, Albert is smitten with a newcomer played by Charlize Theron who also happens to have the skills to teach him how to take on a deadly outlaw (Liam Neeson). That doesn't mean Albert will learn shooting any faster, as he has difficulty taking out bottles at point-blank range.

Sarah Silverman bought her Emmys dress on the internet for just $60. The actress/comedienne wore a short little black dress with matching pumps.

"I'm wearing that Stop Staring. I got it online for $60. Doesn't it look just as good as anything fancy and expensive?" she told Ryan Seacrest.

The Stop Staring! store features designs inspired by the 1940s and 1950s. We have to give her credit for being thrifty and making fashion accessible for non-celebs.

Silverman stopped by to chat with the E! host and scooped her hair behind her ear, explaining: "I've been told to do this."

Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman has no plans to give birth because she doesn't want to risk passing on her depression to a son or daughter.

The 41-year-old star admits her gynecologist has suggested she freeze her eggs, but Silverman insists she has no plans to become a mom, unless she adopts.

On TV show "The Conversation with Amanda DeCadenet" on Thursday, she explained, "I don't want kids. I'd love to adopt someday and I have a lot of adoption in my family...

Celebrity guests on the premiere episode of Amanda De Cadenet's new chat show "The Conversation" were quizzed about their favorite sex positions.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda and Sarah Silverman were all asked what makes them most comfortable in intimate settings.

The racy question raised eyebrows for Fonda and prompted de Cadenet's longtime pal Paltrow to shriek, "What?"

Silverman said, "I do enjoy a good sound missionary-ing... and I like to be manhandled."

Saldana replied, "I like missionary and I like being on my knees too. And I love being on top... I love doggy-style ...

Michelle Williams at Take This Waltz on Sunday
The 11th Annual Tribeca Film Festival came out swinging on its opening weekend with red carpets that were nothing short of fully loaded. From the much-hyped premiere of Jason Segal’s Five-Year Engagement to Freaky Deaky, Tribeca has finally found its form in bringing A-listers out and creating serious buzz around these opening screenings and with moviegoers. There was a lot of talk after Will Arnet showed up mugging his Blue Steel on the carpet for the premiere of Mansome Saturday night, fully GQ’d and headlining a murderer’s row of well-dressed, metrosexually flavoured men.

Sucker Punch
Things were pretty busy for me last week, since I had the chance to see three of the films premiering and interview the writer and director for one of them. I saw “Paul,” “Limitless,” and “The Lincoln Lawyer,” all of which were reasonably enjoyable.

Check out my reviews of “Paul” and “Limitless” if you have not already and definitely read my interview with writer Leslie Dixon and director Neil Burger, for their movie “Limitless.”

I haven’t posted a review of “The Lincoln Lawyer” yet, so I’ll summarize my thoughts for you as usual. Even as a shyster attorney, who makes a living defe...

While many stars look sexy in schoolgirl uniforms (see Carrie Underwood on the "Today Show"), Sarah fails miserably.

Sarah Polley Describes Her Seth Rogen/Michelle Williams Film

Sarah Polley
Actor Sarah Polley earned a lot of acclaim for his first directorial feature, the Alzheimer’s drama Away from Her. For her second film, she tackled the relationships of younger couples. Take This Waltz stars Seth Rogen, Michelle Williams, Sarah Silverman and Luke Kirby.

“I guess it’s a romantic drama that has a lot of humor in it about relationships,” Polley said. “[It’s] about the endings and beginnings of relationships, and what we do when the newness of a relationship ends and what a relationship becomes.”

Rogen usually plays the “unconventional” leading man, where his appearance is so...

Sarah Silverman has failed to save her self-titled comedy show from cancellation - TV bosses have reportedly axed the series after three seasons.

The Sarah Silverman Program, which earned the funny woman an Emmy Award nomination last year, was rumored to be faltering in 2009 after a series of budget cuts, but the star's sister Laura, who also appears in the series, pledged to save the show by launching a campaign on

She wrote, "If you want more Sarah Silverman Program Tweet @ComedyCentral and let them know. It's up to you! Power to the People, Right On."

Sarah Silverman Will Never Joke About Overweight Women

4/21/2010 8:47am EDT
Sarah Silverman
Comedienne Sarah Silverman has vowed never to joke about fat women - because she thinks they receive enough criticism.

The star uses her shows to poke fun at people - but overweight ladies are off-limits to the funny woman.

She tells Larry King, "I guess if there is anything I wouldn't talk about... fat jokes about women. That always bums me out because I feel like we live in a country where fat women - at least in white America - don't deserve love. And I don't think that's true for men. You see every sitcom star is like a fat guy with some gorgeous wife."

"But we live in a country t...

Journey's Steve Perry Insists He Never Used The 'N' Word

Steve Perry
Former Journey star Steve Perry has taken aim at comedienne Sarah Silverman for suggesting he used a racist slur to describe her humor.

Silverman refused to name names in her interview with Playboy magazine, but hinted that the "onetime lead singer of a very popular band from the 1980s" was Perry, joking, "I'll just say this: After that, I stopped believin'," which the rocker took as a reference to Journey hit "Don't Stop Believin.'"

She claimed the mystery man approached her after a show and said, "You're my favorite comedian - you have the best n**ger jokes."

But Perry wasn't laughing ...

The couple began dating in 2003 before splitting in 2008 after five years together. They later reunited, but ended the relationship for good early last year.

Silverman has since embarked on a new romance with "Family Guy" writer Alec Sulkin, while Kimmel was rumored to be dating a writer on his hit TV show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

But the funnywoman is adamant she will always have feelings for her ex-boyfriend.

Sarah Silverman received a barrage of complaints about her speech at a technology conference last week - after her controversial routine failed to impress organizers. The comedienne was booked to appear at the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) event in Long Beach, California, which ran from February 9th-13th.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Shutter Island,' 'The Ghost Writer,'

2/15/2010 3:50pm EST
Last week I caught Steve Buscemi's dark comedy "St. John of Las Vegas" which was slightly disappointing. While the right brand of humor was there; twisted laughs and awkward moments that inspire chuckles

, I felt that the film did not have much to say.

The overarching story seemed to be building up to some kind of life altering self-realization or dramatic event taking place in Las Vegas for Buscemi's character John Alighieri. This moment never really came, and as a result the entire film seemed very anti-climactic.

Buscemi and Romany Malco make a hilarious team, as Malco's chara...

More Crazy Hijinks On 'The Sarah Silverman Program' Season 3

2/11/2010 10:10am EST
Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman fought for a third season of her Comedy Central show The Sarah Silverman Program. It was certainly worth the wait, as she has plenty of highbrow social commentary coming up this season.

"I get in trouble for peeing in a mailbox," Silverman explained. "Or what I thought was an old timey e-mail machine, a box for one of those old timey e-mails I think."

To be fair, she did know that whatever it was wasn't a toilet. "Knew it wasn't a toilet, that's true."

That episode also pokes fun at Silverman's penchant for calling people "retarded." "That is the episode where I fin...

Why Sarah Silverman's New Boyfriend Is Better Than Jimmy Kimmel

2/10/2010 9:33am EST
Jimmy Kimmel Should Reevaluate the State of Things
In this month's edition of Page Six Magazine, Sarah Silverman gives an interview in which she discusses the difficulty of dating after the end of her five-year relationship with comedian, Jimmy Kimmel. Not surprisingly, getting back in the game after so many years proved to be challenging but apparently starting over with her new, unnamed boyfriend has been better for her ego than dating Jimmy.

"The guy I'm dating now, who is so awesome, is not my typical fare. He's really skinny. Usually I like pudgy, macho-ish guys (sic) I think he's the first guy in a decade who's given me any kind o...
