Amy Schumer Talks about Her Body Image Movie ‘I Feel Pretty’

On the criticism she has received for her new movie ‘I Feel Pretty’, that deals with body image:

There’s been a lot of projection. I heard a lot of, “She doesn’t have a right to feel bad about herself because she looks however she looks.” But first off, it’s not about an ugly troll becoming beautiful, it’s about a woman who has low self-esteem finding some. Everyone’s got a right to feel that feeling, regardless of their appearance. We all struggle with self-esteem. I certainly have. Your friends who you think are so beautiful, they could be struggling too. You want them to see themselves the way you see them, but it’s not our place to say who should be allowed to have low self-esteem…. But this projection, yeah: I heard the comment, “Why does she have to think of herself as skinny?” a lot. But you never see how I see myself! That’s a guess, that Renee thinks of herself as skinny. In the scene after the head injury, the assumption is that the woman I see when I look in the mirror is skinny, but I’m just seeing my same self and perceiving my body as beautiful. She doesn’t say, “I’m so thin!” She just says that she’s amazed by her jawline, and her b~~~~, and her ass. If anything, that sounds like a more voluptuous woman to me.

… says 36 year-old Amy.

Amy Schumer: “I exercise, I eat well, I just don’t starve myself”

42EA5E6200000578-0-image-a-73_1501709735797 - Amy Schumer: "I exercise, I eat well, I just don't starve myself"

On her body confidence:

I exercise, I eat well, I just don’t starve myself. I have never been apologetic for what could be considered a flaw on my body. But every year I get more and more comfortable in my own skin – even if there’s more of it now. Not that I don’t get my period every month and not feel like hot garbage, but nothing can really mess with my baseline at this point in terms of my confidence.

On whether men like her figure:

I think men are so happy to have a naked woman in front of them that they’re not going to say ‘Oh, you have bit of cellulite’ and call an Uber.

… says Amy.

Amy Schumer: ‘I’m good-looking enough that I can work in the business’

380bw8JtEW0 - Amy Schumer: 'I'm good-looking enough that I can work in the business'

At request: 35 year-old Amy Schumer is on the cover of InStyle’s May edition, where she wears nothing but a very cleavagey white swimsuit.

On her looks:

I’m good-looking enough that I can work in the business. I get enough attention from men that I feel good. I see pictures of myself now, and I look younger than I think of myself.

My parents made me think I was a genius supermodel, and it was kind of too late when I found out that they had been lying. But I was always really confident, though there have been bumps in the road. During freshman year of college the girls at the school were just so much hotter than me. I couldn’t compete, and I lost all my self-esteem. I was confused about where my value lay, and then I figured it out.

On keeping it real:

I’m realistic because if I look my absolute best and go to an awards thing, I’m still going to be seated next to Blake Lively or Emily Ratajkowski. So that can break your heart or you can be like, “This is pretty good. I’ll take this level.”

How do you all like the spread?

Amy Schumer Will Play Barbie in a Movie, Haters Start Calling Her FAT

amy-schumer-not-fat - Amy Schumer Will Play Barbie in a Movie, Haters Start Calling Her FAT

Amy Schuer is currently in the running for the role of Barbie – and once this interesting news came out, the comedian started getting a lot of hate comments – some targeting her weight.

More details on Barbie Amy Schumer – from Deadline:

Amy Schumer is in negotiations to play the title role in Barbie, the live-action Sony Pictures film based on the venerable Mattel toyline. The PG movie will begin production in the spring for a global summer 2018 tentpole bow, after Schumer puts her imprint on the Hilary Winston script, doing a rewrite with her sister Kim Caramele. Given her edgy stand-up comedy and her movie breakthrough writing and starring in the R-rated Trainwreck, what makes Schumer the right actress to play the embodiment of a beloved toyline that for years featured a doll with impossibly perfect physical proportions? Aside from the fact that she has Barbie hair, Schumer’s growing stature as a role model for female empowerment fits perfectly with how the film will exploit Barbie’s evolution into dolls of different sizes and shapes.

Schumer will play a character who lives in Barbieland, among all of the various Barbie characters beloved by doll collectors (there are dolls covering over 180 careers). In a fish-out-of-water story reminiscent of films like Splash and Big, Schumer’s Barbie gets kicked out, basically because she’s not perfect enough, is a bit eccentric and doesn’t quite fit the mold. She then goes on an adventure in the real world and by the time she returns to Barbieland to save it, she has gained the realization that perfection comes on the inside, not the outside, and that the key to happiness is belief in oneself, free of the obligation to adhere to some unattainable standard of perfection. Mattel, with a lot at stake since the toyline has generated $3 billion in sales, signed off on the take.

Here’s Amy response after being called ‘fat’ again once the Barbie news broke out:

Very very honored to be nominated for 2 Grammys and to be considered to play an important and evolving icon. Is it fat shaming if you know you’re not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don’t think so. I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love. Where’s the shame? It’s not there. It’s an illusion.

When I look in the mirror I know who I am. Im a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend. I’m a badass comic headlining arenas all over the world and making tv and movies and writing books where I lay it all out there and I’m fearless like you can be. Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support and again my deepest sympathy goes out to the trolls who are in more pain than we will ever understand. I want to thank them for making it so evident that I am a great choice. It’s that kind of response that let’s you know something’s wrong with our culture and we all need to work together to change it.

Anyone who has ever been bullied or felt bad about yourself I am out there fighting for you, for us. And I want you to fight for yourself too! We need to laugh at the haters and sympathize with them. They can scream as loud as they want. We can’t hear them because we are getting sh-t done. I am proud to lead by example. “I say if I’m beautiful, I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story. I will” #thegirlwiththelowerbacktattoo
