Sarah Silverman was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, where she was honoured with some good-natured ribbing from famous friends like Jon Hamm and John C. Reilly, and her famous ex, Jimmy Kimmel.
“Who can forget her smash hit viral video, ‘I’m effing Matt Damon’? I know I can’t,” Kimmel said. “Sarah won an Emmy for that appearance on my show.”
He added, “Just to be clear, I have never won an Emmy for an appearance on my show.”
The late-night host also touched on their relationship history, revealing Silverman’s true love in life.
“Sarah and I dated for seven years. She mentioned me in her 300-page autobiography four times. I looked it up last night. She mentioned farting 13 times. It has always been her first love,” he concluded, eliciting a big laugh from Silverman.
The 50-year-old comedian also reminisced about the first time they met.
“The first time I met Sarah was in 2001, at the Comedy Central Roast of Hugh Hefner. She was very nice to me before the show and then once we got on stage, I introduced her and she said, ‘Jimmy Kimmel, everyone! He’s fat and has no charisma,” he said.
Kimmel concluded the speech with genuine praise for his one-time girlfriend and two-time Emmy winner.
“Sarah, you really do deserve this honour. You rank among the great comedians. I think you are a vastly underrated and excellent actress. You sing, you write, you kind of play guitar, you really can do it all,” he said.
Silverman then gave her own heartfelt speech, where she recognized her place on the Walk of Fame next to the beloved Mr. Rogers.
“I can’t believe it, I’m next to my number one hero, Mr. Rogers,” she said. “He taught me I’m the only one qualified in the whole world to be me and that I deserve love, just only the way I am.”
Of course, she threw in a little joke at the end. “And now I literally get to be his neighbour forever, which I have to think is maybe bittersweet for him,” she said.
