Rust explained,

"I found out later, Lesley was asking people there, ‘Who’s that guy, what’s his story?’"

"She asked Sarah Silverman, ‘Hey, do you know if that Paul Rust guy is Jewish?’ and I’m not, but Sarah said to Lesley, ‘If he’s not, his face should sue God.’"

Well, the moment was so much like scripted movie scene; two single writers eyeing each other from across the room.

You might be obvious what happened the next. The two became inseparable ever since.

After dating one another for some years they married in October 2015.
