    Default Amy Schumer Doesn't Want to Hurt Your Eyes

    Amy Schumer Lost Weight So She Wouldn’t ‘Hurt People’s Eyes’ When They Watched ‘Trainwreck’


    Amy Schumer has never been one to shy away from talking about personal things like dealing with trolls or discussing her sex life.
    In an upcoming episode of the U.K.’s “Jonathan Ross Show,” which airs Saturday on ITV, the actress opens up about being told to lose weight for her movie, “Trainwreck.”
    “The only change was that it was explained to me before I did that movie [”Trainwreck”] that if you weigh over 140 pounds as a woman in Hollywood, if you’re on the screen it will hurt people’s eyes,” the 35-year-old said. “I didn’t know that, so I lost some weight to do that, but never again.”
    Luckily, that terrible advice doesn’t seem to have much affect on Schumer, who has posted about how her body makes her feel both “strong and happy.”


    The admission is a little surprising coming from Schumer, who famously accepted Glamour magazine’s Trailblazer of the Year award in 2015, telling the crowd, ““I’m, like, 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a dick whenever I want, and that’s the truth.” However, the fact that she had to lose weight is unfortunately just par for the course in Hollywood and not at all shocking.
    During her appearance, Schumer also talked about another painful order ― learning that her family’s finances were wiped out when she was just a kid. The comedian said it wasn’t until her 12th birthday that she realized her family had “fallen on hard times.”

    “I could tell most clearly by the quality of my birthday parties because one year we had, in New York, a farm party and there were farm animals. For a New York kid, you’ve got to be rolling in dough and we’re riding ponies, the works,” Schumer joked. “And then the next year my birthday party, after we went bankrupt, [was themed around Lionel Richie’s ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’].”
    She added, “My parents just put a light fixture on the floor and my dad put a video camera upside down and we just danced around pretending like we were dancing on the ceiling. Bring your own pizza. It was really dark, my uncle was the clown.”
    Look for Schumer on “The Jonathan Ross Show” on Saturday, Sept. 17 on ITV.

    I was reading about how the actress Jenna Coleman changed her shape to make a stab for Hollywood. It's par for the course in their industry.

    For someone who gets pissed when people talk about her weight, she sure seems to talk a lot about her weight.

    It's not her weight that hurts other's eyes. That's squinting from the pain of hearing her talk.

    I don't care about her weight. I barely even notice it. It's all about her smug face

    The media's fascination with both her and Lena Dunham, and the need to herald them both as cultural icons, is mystifying to me. Trainwreck was good, but there was nothing groundbreaking about it.

    The weight (and her lies about her dress size) bother me not half as much as her pig snout.

    Was just pondering her swearing she's only a size six, but now she's claiming she's above 140 lbs. She's 5'7". As am I. I know everyone is different, but when I was 140 I was absolutely not a 6.

    Again, I can find beauty in all shapes and sizes, but I despise a liar. Especially a holier than thou one.

    Whoa! I can't believe that's even the same person! It reminds me a little bit of a before and after shot I saw of Selma Blair. I have looked all over, and I can't find the before picture any more, but it was a pretty striking difference.

    Is that what's so annoying about her face? I can't figure out why she is so harsh looking. Is it the nose? She has tightly crammed features and beady eyes. I don't know what exactly bugs the crap out of me. But something does.

    Sje obviously has issues with her weight, as much as she claims she doesn't. And it would be hard to fit into a size 6 at 5'7' at any weight, unless it's a "size 6".

    IMO it's more obvious with Karen Gillan, the previous Doctor Who companion. She was thin but had normal curves on the show, then after when she tried to break America via the TV series Selfish had whittled down to anorexic size.

    It was also obvious when you look at a lot of long running shows, the actresses in the first season look usually normal and healthy and by the end they look nothing like that(Sarah Michelle Geller for instance, or Cox and Aniston)

    VERY distracting through the whole show. She looks awful.
