Amy Schumer is calling out body shaming WITHIN the film industry!
The blonde beauty recently sat down with The Jonathan Ross Show to fire shots at the way a woman’s weight is viewed in the entertainment world!
The funny lady quipped to Jonathan Ross that she slimmed down for her starring role in Trainwreck because she was told women over a certain weight will “hurt people’s eyes” while on camera!
The gorgeous gal busted out the joke while dishing how Hollywood changed her, saying:
“The only change was that it was explained to me before I did that movie that if you weigh over 140 pounds as a woman in Hollywood, if you’re on the screen it will hurt people’s eyes. I didn’t know that so I lost some weight to do that but never again.”
Joke or not, it’s still disturbing to think that mentality is in full swing within the film industry!
And, we have to admit, we love that Miz Schumer is taking jabs at body shaming from people in the entertainment field, not just Twitter trolls!
In the upcoming interview, the fierce female also laughed about the time her family went bankrupt, saying:
“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. And then the next year my birthday party, after we went bankrupt, [was themed around Lionel Richie‘s Dancing on the Ceiling song].”
She jokingly recalled:
“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. I realised we had fallen on hard times.”
If you want more from Amy, her interview airs on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. on ITV.
