“I’m what Hollywood calls very fat,” Amy Schumer said in her Netflix stand-up Amy Schumer: The Leather Special, which debuted Tuesday. “Somebody, like, explained to me, ‘Just so you know, Amy, no pressure, but if you weigh over 140 pounds, it will hurt people’s eyes.'”
She even remarked on how she doesn’t feel comfortable with her body when she’s thinner, saying that after losing weight for Trainwreck, she looked “stupid,” saying, “I look very stupid skinny. My dumb head stays the same size but then my body, like, shrivels.”
In fact, Amy was so unhappy with how her body looked, that after the movie she “revenge ate” to get back to her normal weight.
This isn’t the first time Amy has been vocal about fat-shamers, in fact she’s become a body-positive evangelist, encouraging women to accept and embrace their bodies, regardless of size, often calling attention to the ridiculous standards Hollywood has for women.
