Sarah Silverman will never marry.  

The 43-year-old actress - who is in a relationship with 'Masters of Sex' actor Michael Sheen - has laughed off reports she is desperate for the actor to propose, insisting she finds the institution of marriage "barbaric".  

She tweeted: "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.(sic)"   Sarah - who previously dated Jimmy Kimmel for five years - spoke out following an article which claimed she had been leaving "pictures of engagement rings all over the place" in a hint that she was ready for Michael to propose.  

And the brunette star - who began dating the 45-year-old actor at the beginning of the year - branded the claims "bigoted".  

She wrote: ""That s--t never bothers me b/c who cares but I feel like this one is bigoted.  

"The Jew girl MUST want a RING! Yich.(sic)"  

Sarah - who is vegetarian - previously compared marriage to eating meat, saying it was "gross and f***ing crazy".  

She said: "It's just not for me. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't have a problem if you want a hamburger. Marriage, to me, is like eating meat. I think it's gross and f***ing crazy. It's this superbarbaric, old-timey tradition that no one remembers we don't have to do anymore.  

"I really do believe in love. I've experienced it, I've had it, so I know it's real."
