Amy Schumer covers her very first fashion magazine! Inside the August issue of ‘Glamour’ the comedian discusses female body image and admits having a career in the spotlight makes it even harder to date, due to misconceptions about her sex life.
Funny gal Amy Schumer is making the leap to the big screen — and that’s not all! She also covers her very first fashion magazine, where she rocks a form-fitting Narcisco Rodriguez frock on the August 2015 issue of Glamour. Up next you can see Amy in Trainwreck, a movie she both wrote and stars in — and while in the romantic comedy she may get the guy, in real life she admitted that dating in the spotlight definitely isn’t easy!
Amy was interviewed by her sister, writer Kim Caramele, for the issue — and she candidly opened up about whether being a famous comedian has helped her land dates. “It’s hurt it. Now I have to wonder what people’s intentions are, and also people think that I have more sex than I do. But you know what? I made a decision. I’m gonna do this anyway. [Laughs.] I’m gonna keep speaking up and creating all this work. I could have roped it in and hopefully found a mate. But I made a decision. And it does feel like sometimes it’s a sacrifice for my love life and social life. Hero alert!”
The unapologetic comedian made headlines at the Glamour UK Women of the Year Awards, when she said: “I’m probably like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a dick whenever I want.” Inside the issue, she further explained the statement. “If a guy was like, ‘I can get pussy whenever I want,’ that guy would be a dickhead. But to deny that there’s a major difference is ridiculous. For women, we’re taught to eat less until we disappear. And trained to believe that if you don’t look like everyone else, then you’re unlovable. And men are not trained that way. Men can look like whatever and still date a supermodel. I’m proud of what I said. I think it’s good to see somebody saying: I have a belly. And I have cellulite. And I still deserve love. And to catch the old D. And to not apologize,” she said.
The comedian also shared her Dos and Don’ts of hooking up. “Do what you feel you want to do while also considering how you’ll feel the next day…. Don’t not have an orgasm. Make sure he knows that you’re entitled to an orgasm. I like to say it. I’ll be like, ‘Hey, there are two people here.’ I’ll be like, ‘Oh my God, have you met my clit?’ Don’t be self-conscious,” she said.
