AceShowbiz - Comedian Sarah Silverman found a new boyfriend by playing video game "Call of Duty" during the pandemic.
The star didn't even need to leave her apartment in New York City to hook up with her new guy during the coronavirus lockdown, and she gushed about "killing Nazis" with him during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday (08Oct20).
"As the world was shutting down, I thought I should start playing video games again. It just made sense," she explained. "This is the time. So I went to GameStop - it was still open - and I bought a console and couple of games. And I got really into this one; it's not the latest one but I love it - Call of Duty: WWII."
Sarah's new boyfriend introduced himself on Twitter and suggested they get together virtually to play games.
"We have mutual friends and stuff; we knew each other a bit," she added. "He direct messaged me on Twitter; he goes, 'I'll play with you online.' "
"We were both quarantining... so every night, at 7.05, I'd put my headset on, and I kill Nazis with this guy. I mean, yadda, yadda, yadda, we're boyfriend and girlfriend... We make sweet love."
And Silverman admits her new man is just what she needed in her life right now, "He's been very patient, because I think I was single for a good amount of time and what I realised is I love being alone, I need to be alone, and I was afraid to give up any of that."
"So far we've had two sleepovers. It went really well, but usually I send them home and he's cool with it. So far, you know early, they're always great... When he did sleep over, he just was there. It was fine."
