Amy Schumer refuses to starve herself like other actresses and says it is very common place for women in the industry to deliberately have “hungry days”.
The ‘Trainwreck’ star says it is quite common place in the industry for women to have “hungry days” but Amy refuses to get involved in that trend.
She said: “They won’t be able to enjoy it; they have to be hungry. That’s totally typical for a lot of actresses. But I’m like, ‘I’m not doing that,’ because those people aren’t happy. But it’s funny, I go to awards shows and I try to look my best and I look like how the costume designers look and I feel proud about that.”
And the 36-year-old actress and comedienne – who recently tied the knot with chef Chris Fischer – doesn’t want to send a negative message to her fans.
Speaking on Katie Couric’s podcast, she added: “[It would be] against the point. I feel beautiful and I feel strong and sexy, but I’m not going to be the most beautiful girl, so I’m not going to try to market myself or get myself there. And I don’t think that sends a good message. How about not striving for some other version of yourself? Why not love what you’ve got going on right now rather than this eternal dissatisfaction?”
Meanwhile, Amy previously credited her parents for helping her stay confident.
