Sarah Silverman has insisted she isn't jealous of her boyfriend Michael Sheen's relationship with his ex Kate Beckinsale.

The former Saturday Night Live star said she thinks Kate is "beautiful" and revealed she isn't at all threatened by Michael staying close to the British actress, who he was with for eight years and has a teenage daughter with.

Sarah - who has been dating Welsh star Michael for several months - told Howard Stern on his radio show: "I love her. She's hilarious... She's really cool."

"They're really funny together," added the Wreck-It Ralph star.

Michael also previously dated Hollywood star Rachel McAdams, but Sarah said the fact he has romanced such stunning women actually makes her feel better about herself.

When asked whether she feels she is compared to Kate, the US comedian and actress said: "No it's more like, 'Look at all these beautiful women and he loves me.' It's more like that, like 'Wow!'."

Sarah and Michael were recently at the centre of engagement rumours, but she took to Twitter to shoot down the reports, insisting: "Just read that I wanna get married which is hilarious b/c I will never get married.

"Why would I want the govt involved in my love life? Ew. It's barbaric."

During her chat with Stern, the comic star reiterated her view of marriage, but hinted that she might be ready for a family.

She said: "I have always been baby crazy... I'm going through such a crisis in that way because my whole life I've been like, 'Ah, I'm not ready, I'm not ready, I love kids but someday' and now it's like, 'I'm 43' and I still don't feel ready!

"It's such a huge decision. How do people make this decision so fast like it's nothing? It's your whole life!"
