(NEW YORK) — In a sweeping cover story with Vogue — the irony of her appearing in the fashion mag not lost on someone who admits fashion “isn’t my thing” — Amy Schumer talks about her comedy, her career, and her love life.
The Inside Amy Schumer writer, producer, and star recently wrote a memoir, a movie in which she’ll co-star with Jennifer Lawrence, and another with a comedy idol of hers, Goldie Hawn.
This is in addition to working on her Comedy Central show, in its fourth season, and constantly touring, including nearing a comedy high-water mark only a handful of stand-ups ever achieve: playing Madison Square Garden June 23.
“I wouldn’t know what motivates Tina Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus,” Amy says…”Sometimes I feel like they’re hustling, they want something, and they’re not going to stop until they get it, and they play the game…Like, I don’t want to play the game and succeed at it. I want to redefine it.”
About the collaboration with J-Law, Schumer said the Oscar-winner mentioned Amy in a red carpet interview. Schumer posted it to her own fans. “I was just so excited that she knew who I was and liked me,” Schumer explained.
Lawrence then emailed Schumer, saying, “Maybe we could work together.”
“That was all I needed: I just wrote six scenes and sent them,” Amy said. The pair will play sisters in the upcoming project.
Schumer recently made headlines by taking on body shamers online. And while she says negative comments “sometimes get to me,” she notes, “The feedback that reaches me is so equal in appreciation and outrage that it doesn’t feel overwhelming in either direction.”
“I think the reign of the mean girls is ending,” she says.
Vogue‘s July issue hits newsstands June 22nd.
