The phenomenon that is Amy Schumer has been taking our hearts (and all of our laughs) by storm. She is a confident, outspoken, beautiful and funny woman who has been redefining the meaning of comedy and female comedy in particular for a few years now. You might know her for her hit show Inside Amy Schumer or her work on the movie Trainwreck or maybe even her book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. Do you want to hear more about this hurricane of a woman? Here we go!
1. Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are basically best friends
JLaw made the first move on their relationship when she sent Schumer an email praising her for her movie Trainwreck. Emailing turned into texting and just like a modern-day fairytale these two began hanging out. They take ski trips together and break the Internet with their adorable Instagrams. Best friend goals.
2. Schumer was born into a wealthy family
Up until the age of nine Schumer was living out our best Gossip Girl fantasies. Guys, she was literally living on the Upper East Side of New York City. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out for her dad and he had to file for bankruptcy when Amy was nine. The comedian experienced both a rich life and poor life.
