SARAH SILVERMAN SPEAKS
New Hampshire had its issues, she once told . "We grew up in a place with very few Jews. I didn't look like the other kids. I had hairy legs, hairy arms, hair everywhere. I looked like a little monkey." But Silverman had issues of her own.
She was diagnosed as clinically depressed at 13, prescribed Xanax for three years and was a chronic bedwetter – all seriously and comically covered in her autobiography, .
"I grew up in
and everyone was very blonde and people would be
like, 'Are you from New Hampshire ?' I was
just hairy! I used to bleach my arm hair. And it hurt so much. You don't know
suffering for beauty until you're sitting on the floor of your bathroom,
weeping, with white cream on your arms." New
You'd think that with all the "hairy" talk there would be some nice pics out there, but I can't find them. In her book she mentions her hairiness at least 3 times, but nowadays she shaves. Doesn't make sense to me. I remember when she was still dating Jimmy Kimmel a few years ago, HE even mentioned it during a celebrity roast where they were both appearing. If you look up EVENING AT THE IMPROV on YouTube, you may find her in an early stand-up routine where her arms are nicely covered.
