In other comedians named Amy news, Amy Schumer is not afraid to speak out and speak her mind!

The actress talked to the press at a conference for her new film, Trainwreck, on Friday in Los Angeles. And she says it’s not about men, or conforming, but drawing from personal experience and maintaining authenticity. In the movie (which hits theaters July 17), Schumer plays a serial dater with what some have perceived as having an act-like-a-man-attitude, but she says that’s not the point.

“A lot of people have asked me if I intended to kind of flip the gender roles like I’m playing the guy, and that’s not been my experience at all,” she explained. “This is how I am and how a lot of girls are where the guy ends up being a little more sensitive and more invested. So the scene where I get high and then John [Cena‘s] character looks through my phone, and then instead of comforting him I ask if I can leave – that did happen in my real life.”

And when it came time to shoot a sex scene between Schumer and co-star Bill Hader, it actually might have been Trainwreck director Judd Apatow who was the most uncomfortable.

“Judd was very embarrassed,” Hader said. “He was very shy when we did the real sex scene on the couch. He was like, ‘Okay, so today’s the big day. Okay, you guys it’s gonna be fun,’ and everyone was looking at the ground.”

And in general, Amy doesn’t like to conform- she likes to be herself and thinks her work also speaks to that.

“It’s very therapeutic for me to be like, ‘Yes, I’m not going to look like a malnourished bird,’ and I like speaking to that, as well as speaking to my work and what I’m doing,”

I agree. I think Amy’s super unique and support all the really smart comedy she does. Will you see Trainwreck?

Nia Vardalos and John Corbett have reunited and it is hot/hilarious/exciting, y’all!

While on the set of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 on Friday, John and Nia took a fun instagram selfie together. The best part? John sans shirt.

“Is someone trying to get baptized again in #MyBigFatGreekWedding2?” Vardalos, 52, teased via Instagram. In the pic, the costars looked giddy as they got ready to film in the Portokalos family restaurant.

It was announced in May 2014 that a sequel was on the way- and it is! The film will hit theatres on March 25th, 2016.

“Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” Vardalos said in a statement at the time. She joked: “Of course, a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true.”

And below? The picture that had me droooling.  It’s like a little Magic Mike, wrapped up in a Greek family comedy.

That Ridiculous Mila Kunis Chicken Lawsuit Was Dropped

Burberry 'London In Los Angeles' Event

Wow, in SHOCKING News, Mila Kunis‘ insane childhood friend is backing the eff off…

Kristina Karo tells TMZ she has decided to drop her $5,000 lawsuit against Kunis for allegedly stealing her chicken named Doggie 25 years ago. Karo says that, after hashing things out with her therapist (that’s what therapy’s for, friend) “I’ve learned to forgive in my heart the people who have wronged me, like Mila.”

Karo says that her story resonated so much with her fans that they helped her raise the money to cover her therapy bills,  so the lawsuit became unnecessary.

Um, fans?

Like any halfway sane person, Mila called BS on the lawsuit from the beginning. Still, Kristina I guess prays for Mila’s soul? “There is only one judge and that is God. I pray for her soul and the soul of Doggie, that he has found peace finally in chicken heaven.”

Ah, the sage words of an insane Ukranian woman.

The Magic Mike XXL Cast Gets REAL On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

'Jupiter Ascending' Los Angeles Premiere

You guys, Magic Mike XXL is like my favorite thing to write about, so why NOT ring in the week with a little sexy MM sequel action?

The men of Magic Mike XXL stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Sunday, dishing on just how well they know one another now after spending months filming the sequel of my dreams.

Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Matt Bomer, and Adam Rodriguez dished to host Jimmy Kimmel about all kinds of thangs:

On the title of the film: “It actually was Soderbergh,” he continued of the first film’s director, Steven Soderbergh. “Apparently he’s been thinking about the title a lot… There was one [alternate title], and it was, Magic Mike: The Road to Myrtle Beach.”

On waxing for the film: “I actually went to the wax procedure,” WWE star Nash, 55, spilled. “I got to my first buttock, they started to go toward the cavern, and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll pretty much take this at home.’

Nash went on to say that the waxing wasn’t even the worst part of filming, saying, “the lack of wine” and “no-drinking” rule was the hardest aspect for him. Nudity was no big thing, either!

On costar nudity: “[It was] definitely, definitely easier [the second time],” Rodriguez told Kimmel of his comfort level with his costars’ nudity. “I think we got that out of the way early on in the first one. I think this time we’re actually looking forward to seeing each other naked.”

“We pretty much, between us, have no boundaries left,” Bomer, 37, chimed in. “I can’t even smell the smell of self-tanner anymore. My olfactories are just gone.”

AHAHAH I LOVE THIS.  I can’t wait for the film and I think I’m collectively in love with all of these dudes. Happy Monday, ya’ll!
