'I’m psyched that I don’t have to be zipping up my boots, leaving someone’s apartment at 3 am': Amy Schumer on marriage

‘I feel Pretty’ is in cinemas, Amy Schumer’s new movie and it challenges the conventiality of beauty and everything that is attractive in women. Schumer spoke to The Guardian about her new movie, on being married, One-Night-Stands and #MeToo movement.

A lot of the media and followers were shocked over her sudden marriage and she is quite surprised. Amy Schumer married a chef named Chris Fischer, on a clifftop in Malibu. However, media coverage suggested it was impulsive and fast. Amy responded, “I feel exactly the same as before I was married – but I’m psyched. I love him, Like- it feels like having a partner. It feels like not being alone.”

She candidly spoke about her husband, “He’s 38, I’m 36, so, you know, we are not completing each other. We already are who we are and just want to support and encourage each other. And so I’m psyched that I don’t have to be zipping up my knee boots, leaving someone’s apartment at 3am. I’m done.”

Schumer later describes how the relationship was unlike her other ones, “where you’re like, come on, pleeease meet my parents. I can’t believe I dealt with any of that bullshit before! This was like, oh my God I f**king love this person, and I admire him, and we’re a team and he was ready,” she added.

Amy is also excited about her new movie ‘I feel Pretty’, a film about a woman Renne, who gets a head injury and believes herself to have become as beautiful as a supermodel, hence changes herself for living a sexier life. The film questions whether beauty is just imaginary – it also involves certain Schumer elements like a vaginal injury on an exercise bike. When asked about the film being romantic, “I don’t think of this movie as a love story. It’s about her and her friends.”

She also answers whether women dress-up for women,“In my experience, men are not that psyched and the guys that I’m attracted to aren’t the guys who are like, ‘Oh, is that the new Givenchy line?’

Asked about the #MeToo movement, Schumer is completely supportive but she is not much enthusiastic about it she says, “Because, while it’s exciting, it’s also really triggering and upsetting. It makes everybody feel super vulnerable. But to think that this generation is going to say, ‘This isn’t acceptable,’ and not just bury the things that our mother generations buried – that feels really good. It feels like, across the board, we’re getting closer to equality. Which is – it’s such a gut-wrenching thing to even have to say that.”

On men being threatened about the #Metoo movement, she replied: “We’ve been threatened our whole life”

Getting back to her personal life, when quizzed on her take on one-night-stands and whether all her relationships have only been physical, “No! See to me, a one-night stand is where you meet someone that same day, you have sex with them, and then you never see them again. Sleeping with a friend or having sex with someone you know just once, no, I don’t consider that a one-night stand. I should make an addendum to that book. Something else I realized: I wrote that I don’t like watercress in the book. But I meant water chestnuts. So I need to publish two corrections, I guess.”
