Everything is fair game at a Celebrity Roast, right? That’s the whole point. And it’s not just the subjects of the roast who are under attack, it’s the hosts as well. That’s. The. Whole. Point. So at the recent James Franco Roast, Jonah Hill’s weight was fair game. Aziz Ansari’s race was…uh…fair game. And, apparently, Sarah Silverman being a super old hag of a lady who should probably just give up and get a bunch of cats is fair game.
She’s 42 people. Anyway, here are some choice words Jonah Hill flung at Silverman:
Sarah is a role model for every little girl out there. I mean, every little girl dreams of being a 58-year-old single stand-up comedian with no romantic prospects on the horizon. They all dream of it, but Sarah did it…People say it’s too late for Sarah to become successful in movies at her age. I again do not agree. It’s not impossible. I mean it’s not like they’re asking you to bear children or anything like that.
So yeah, that’s a sh*tty, stupid thing to say. But as I mentioned, that’s the point of a roast. Everything is fair game. So what makes Sarah Silverman’s response so noteworthy?
