Sarah Silverman was quick to shoot down rumors that she is engaged to boyfriend Michael Sheen.

After a tabloid recently ran a story titled, "Sarah Wants a Ring," about the 43-year-old comedian leaving "pictures of engagement rings all over the place" so Sheen, 45, would get the "hint" and propose, Silverman responded on Twitter Sunday.

The comedian went on to explain why she will never tie the knot.

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

Silverman and Sheen have been dating since last December. She has been a recurring guest star on his series, "Masters of Sex."

In April, Silverman opened up to "The View" about her love for Sheen.

"Look, this is so awkward. Listen, I love his body, but I also love what's inside," she said, opening up for the first time about Sheen publicly.

"He speaks foreign, he's foreign and on his show 'Masters of Sex' he speaks perfect American," she joked about her British boyfriend. "I'm like 'If you can talk normal, why don't you do that all the time?' And I like to get in his face and go, 'USA, number one!' and he's like 'Number one in what?' and I'm like 'Obesity?'"
