When asked if she's in love or lust, she replied: "Look, this is so awkward. Listen, I love his body, but I also love what's on the inside."

She joked: "He speaks foreign, he's foreign and on his show Masters of Sex he speaks perfect American. And I'm like, 'If you can talk normal, why don't you do that all the time?'"

Us exclusively revealed this past February that Silverman, 43, and the British star, 45, were an item. Around that time, Silverman joined in to celebrate Sheen's 45th birthday at Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood, where his ex-wife Kate Beckinsale and her second husband Len Wiseman also attended. (The exes share daughter Lily, 14.) On Feb. 6, Silverman and Sheen enjoyed some alone time as they were spotted "making out" at Soho House in West Hollywood, an onlooker told Us.
