Amy Schumer Gets Personal: “It’s All F***ing Crazy.”

Amy Schumer is on the cover of Vanity Fair…looking every bit as gorge as you’d think.

I kinda hate that they keep calling her “kid sister” ad talking about her being a “lightening rod,” because actually, the interview is far more real and informational…more down to earth than sensationalist. She talks a LOT about her own feelings, her relationship with her sister and her show. And it’s pretty great, especially if you aren’t super familiar with Schumer (she did her senior thesis on the “male gaze,” BTW). Here are the highlights:

On being a performer at a young age: “As soon as I could make expressions, I was trying to make my parents laugh. My sister and brother liked to play characters that already existed, like Snow White, but I liked to make up my own characters, and I’d walk around as that character in the house, and people would address me as her. Madame Lavitchky was a big one. She was a fortune-teller. I would wrap my head and turn a glass vase upside down and I’d give readings to everyone, very dramatic. Like ‘Your husband’s going to die at war.’ Crazy shit.”

On the theatre shooting during Trainwreck: “So my publicist told me. And then I put on the news. I was by myself in a hotel, and I was just like, I wish I never wrote that movie.” She knew intellectually that she had nothing to do with the shooting, but friends who reached out and tried to comfort her, telling her the shooting wasn’t her “fault,” only made it worse. “I just felt helpless and stupid.”

On an instagram joke that turned into baby rumors: “It’s all fucking crazy,” she said, it being her public omnipresence. “I feel like right now I’m going to crack down and keep myself more private for that reason. Which feels, you know, kind of counter-intuitive as a comic. But I don’t know—it seems necessary.”

Again, it sounds pretty grounded, but also a lot like “I’m relateable, see? I’m just like Jennifer Lawrence when I don’t wanna work I eat pizzas and watch weird 80’s movies.” LOL. What do YOU think of the interview?
