    Never again will Amy Schumer lose weight just for a movie, she has vowed in a new interview.

    The comedian stopped by U.K.’s The Jonathan Ross Show this week, where she talked about the unfair treatment of women in Hollywood. Schumer admitted that she was advised to lose weight for her role in 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.”

    Schumer, 35, said she succumbed to the Hollywood pressure to be thin and dropped a few pounds before filming.

    "Never again," she said.

    To be fair, her body looked fantastic in Trainwreck

    Too bad her face was still fucked up

    Exactly. Kathy Bates is fat but she also doesn't play women that men are dying to fuck

    In Amy's movie she would have us believe that there is a line of male models lined up outside her bedroom door. And John Cena.

    Even when she was skinny, that cabbage patch face just ruins everything else.

    So so. It was enjoyable but her whole "look at me, I'm so edgy and shocking" shit is so fucking stale at this point.

    Honest to God, and I never thought I'd say this but the best part of that movie was LeBron James

    And she's young too. You see her at the beginning of that movie walking down the street w/ a short skirt on and say "why? If she just slimmed down she'd look sort of good!"

    Exactly this. The reason Kathy Bates is such a great actress is because she'll get nude, like in About Schmidt, to purposely make an uncomfortable scene between her and Jack Nicholson. She wasn't doing it because she thought she would be sexy. She doesn't take her looks seriously. She's genuine about "not caring what others think."

    She's probably going to stay fat or fatter to keep making her point, which is stupid.

    her 15mins are almost up and most comedians don't have a long life span out side comedy clubs.
    If I was her I would keep my mouth shut and ride this wave cause if she keeps this up, people are not going to want to hire her cause she seems like a pain to work with

    by the way this is Hollywood, what do you expect
