Could an Emmy win have been responsible for rekindling a romance between comedians Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman?
The two, who split in July after five years, are reportedly back together — less than a month after Silverman won an Emmy for her Internet hit, "I'm F——— Matt Damon," which first aired on Kimmel's late-night talk show.
"They're taking it slow," a source told People magazine. "They're on the road back to being together."
But, in an interview with the New York Times published on Tuesday and during a Tuesday appearance on "The View," Silverman played coy about defining their relationship.
"There is no weirdness with us," she told the newspaper, declining not to elaborate further. "We talk every day. It's fine, it's great."
"It's not like a big drama thing, we're just not defining it. We're just being right now," she told "The View."
Last week, the comedy duo was seen together at shock jock Howard Stern's New York City wedding, and earlier that week, they were spotted dinning together in L.A. In both instances, the two were seen holding hands and being affectionate.
During the 37-year-old's acceptance speech at the Emmy last month, Silverman publicly acknowledged Kimmel.
""Thanks to the person for whom this whole video was made: Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart — ohh, who'll always have a place in my heart," she said.
Silverman and Kimmel, 40, met at a roast for Hugh Hefner, and Kimmel soon hired the comedienne to do voices on his Comedy Central show "Crank Yankers." The two celebrated their fifth anniversary in February by creating parodies for his late-night show about sleeping with A-list stars.
Kimmel separated from wife Gina in 2002.
