    Sounds like Sarah Silverman is smitten with boyfriend Michael Sheen.

    The funnygal appeared on The View on Friday, where she opened up about her hunky man and couldn't help but blush when asked about a recent pic of the two taken at the Met Gala, in which she's grabbing Sheen's booty on the red carpet.

    "What am I supposed to say, I'm an ass man," the comedian candidly confessed.

    The two were first romantically linked in February after they were caught engaging in some steamy PDA. They later made their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2014 Met Gala, where the butt grab took place.

    When asked whether she's in love or lust with the Masters of Sex star, Silverman became visibly uncomfortable before she replied, "Look, this is so awkward. Listen, I love his body, but I also love what's on the inside."

    The 43-year-old actress also couldn't resist the opportunity to poke a little fun at her British BF's accent.

    "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?'" the brunette beauty quipped.

    Last month, it was announced that Silverman will soon be sharing the boob tube spotlight with her beau, as she's been tapped to star in the second season of Showtime's smash series.

    And in addition to working together, Sheen showed his support for Silverman at the Los Angeles premiere of her new flick A Million Ways to Die in the West, where the two posed for pics together on the red carpet.

    "I play a prostitute in the Old West," Silverman told The View co-hosts, opening up about her role. "And I'm with my boyfriend of six years, Giovanni Ribisi, the most delicious thing in the world. But I won't have sex with him because we're not married and we're Christian."
