Amy Schumer is funny AF, uber talented, besties with Jennifer Lawrence and an overall #bosschick who's taken Hollywood by storm, but her unapologetic candor is what makes the 34-year-old one of the most admirable celebs.
The Trainwreck star recently admitted to dealing with body image issues throughout her entire life. "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," Amy told Today's Maria Shriver. "I can't perform my best or be confident if I'm not sure, if I'm pulling at something. Sometimes I would just want to throw in the towel and say, 'I'm not going to do stand-up tonight.'"
Sigh. We totally feel her on those struggles, and her unabashed, tell-it-like-it-is attitude is what bumps the temps up a notch on the Why We Love Amy-o-meter. Instead of faking it for the less than forgiving glare of the Hollywood spotlight, Amy's always dropping some major need-to-know truth bombs.
Here are seven more moments when Amy kept it real AF (and we loved her for it!):
1. When she shouted out her makeup artist onstage at the Emmys:
Instead of pretending she woke up like this, Amy had a real girl moment when she credited her makeup artist for helping create her fab Emmys look.
2. When she schooled guys on the ins and outs of what it's like to have a vag:
"It's work having a vagina. Guys don't think that its work but it is," Amy said. "You think it shows up like that to the event? It doesn't. Every night it's like getting it ready for its first Quinceanera, believe me."
3. On why she fell in front of Kimye on the red carpet:
"I usually disassociate, which is only available to you if you had a poor childhood, so I disassociate but what I attribute that moment to was seeing these people who are media moguls in their prime, in their moment, and wanting to do something to remind everyone that we're all human and that no one is more special than anyone else," Amy said.
4. When she called out the stigmas that women face:
"I think it has something to do with the general aggression toward women, and it being pounded into people's heads that it's just not possible for women to be funny," Amy said in a 2013 interview with Salon. "Even though we're living in the times we're living in, there is still stigma with women in general. People want women to be in a certain place. And not everyone's comfortable with a woman speaking openly and honestly. When I read Gloria Steinem quotes, I just think that we aren't that far along, or much further along than when she was."
5. When she talked self-love:
"No, I'm not going to apologize for who I am, and I'm going to actually love the skin that I'm in," the comedian said. "I'm not gonna be striving for some other version of myself."
6. When she basically delivered a huge "Eff you" to the haters:
Amy's Gloria Awards and Gala speech should be memorized by every man, woman and child. "I will speak and share and f**k and love and I will never apologize to the frightened millions who resent that they never had it in them to do it," she told the audience. "I stand here and I am amazing, for you. Not because of you. I am not who I sleep with. I am not my weight. I am not my mother. I am myself. And I am all of you, and I thank you."
7. When she had no probz admitting that she's a total man-magnet:
While accepting Glamour's Trailblazer Award, Amy famously said, "I'm probably, like, a 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a d**k whenever I want."
Yes, Amy. Continue to speak the truth, even if you make us blush a little (or a lot) in the process.
