Comedians Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman have called it quits after five years of dating, reps for the couple told USmagazine.com.
A source tells US that Silverman, 37, had dinner with a male friend on Saturday, where "she was talking and it looked like he was listening and then advising her." When she and Kimmel's mutual friend Jonah Hill stopped by, his "appearance definitely had an effect on her. They spoke for just a minute. And after he left, Sarah looked momentarily pensive."
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.
Silverman's "I'm F---ing Matt Damon" was followed by Kimmel's "I'm F---ing Ben Affleck," featuring Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Affleck himself.
Kimmel separated from wife Gina in 2002, and Silverman has said she will not get married until gay marriage is legalized.
Vanity Fair first reported the news, and the pair's reps told US that "Jimmy and Sarah will have no further comment."
