She released an autobiography The Bedwetter in 2010. She has also appeared in other television programs, such as Mr Show and V.I.P., and starred in films, including Who's the Caboose? (1997), School of Rock (2003), Wreck-It Ralph (2012) and A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014).
Silverman became a vegetarian at the age of ten. She has also said that she does not drink alcohol because it nauseates her. Silverman is open about her lifelong battle with clinical depression, which at one point led to her developing an addiction to Xanax. She credited her subsequent emotional health to taking the prescription drug Zoloft. She struggled with bedwetting from the time she was young until well into her teens and stated in a 2007 interview that she had wet the bed recently. Her autobiography, published in April 2010, entitled The Bedwetter, explores the subject, among others. She has stated she does not want to get married until same-sex couples are able to. She stated she does not want to have biological children to avoid the risk that they might inherit her depression. Silverman's biological sister Laura played her sister on The Sarah Silverman Program.
An older sister, Susan, is a rabbi who lives in Jerusalem with her husband, Yosef Abramowitz, the co-founder and president of Arava Power Company, and their five children. Silverman considers herself culturally Jewish, which she has frequently mined for material, but says she is agnostic and does not follow Judaism, claiming, "I have no religion. But culturally I can't escape it; I'm very Jewish."
Silverman was in a relationship with comedian Jimmy Kimmel beginning in 2002. She referred to the relationship in some of her comedy, joking: "I'm Jewish, but I wear this Saint Christopher medal sometimes; my boyfriend is Catholic—but you know... it was cute the way he gave it to me. He said if it doesn't burn a hole through my skin, it will protect me." In July 2008, Vanity Fair reported that the couple had split. However in October 2008, the media reported they were on "the road back to being together". The couple attended the wedding of Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky, but split again in March 2009. Silverman began dating television writer Alec Sulkin in early 2010; they met via Twitter after she sent him a personal message and they split up months later in October 2010, but remain friends. Silverman and comedian Kyle Dunnigan were in a relationship from October 2011 to December 2013.
Silverman began dating Welsh actor Michael Sheen in January 2014.
