Amy Schumer Gets Super Emotional About Her Struggle With Body Image (Video)
Goddamn, Amy Schumer, you are every woman.
The comedienne recently joined Goodwill Industries in an effort to provide women the tools to dress in ways that make them feel confident and conquer their insecurities.
In an interview on the "Today" show, Schumer told Maria Shriver,
It's been a struggle for me my whole life, especially just being in the entertainment industry, standing on a stage in front of people… Sometimes I would just want to throw in the towel and say, 'I'm not going to do stand-up tonight.'
When her “Trainwreck” stylist, Leesa Evans, found pieces to flatter the 34-year-old's frame, Schumer felt endless gratitude for the self-assuredness that accompanied a panic-free wardrobe.
She emotionally shared,
Leesa had given me this gift of showing me how to dress and feel good… She shopped for my sister also. And seeing my little sister wearing a little blazer and a shirt and looking just like a strong, beautiful woman, I realized that holding myself back was also holding her back… To see the person I care the most about being given those tools was just really moving for me, and I just wanted to give it to every woman.
Finally, someone who understands women have diverse bodies and no clues on how to dress them. Although Schumer's jokes can be self-deprecating, she undoubtedly feels incredible while delivering them.
