Sarah Silverman says she is in her ''sexual prime.''

The 44-year-old comedienne, who is in a relationship with 46-year-old British actor Michael Sheen, claims she has turned into ''an animal'' in the bedroom in recent years.

She said: ''As I get older, it really is true what they say, that you get in your like -- not to be gross -- but, like, sexual prime. You know, you turn into like an animal...''

The actress attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Grants Banquet in Los Angeles solo on Thursday night (13.08.15), but sent some racy text messages to her boyfriend from the red carpet.

She told 'Entertainment Tonight': ''I wish he was here. I sent him a picture of my boobs and I was like who's going to help me out of this dress? And now he wishes he was here!''

Meanwhile, Sarah thinks Hollywood is finally beginning to show female actresses more respect.

She explained: ''I think once people become aware and shed a light on different issues, then people change and really Hollywood responds to what people like and people are really liking this stuff you know?

''Women run comedy and women that aren't in their 20's are running television. You know, ruling television.''
