Amy Schumer, the writer, actor, and comedian known for her candor, just opened up about her experience with liposuction. The Life and Beth star revealed in January that she’d had liposuction to restore her figure after a complicated pregnancy and delivery (documented in the HBO Max series Expecting Amy) and a battle with endometriosis. Under a picture of herself beaming on the beach, Schumer wrote, “Never thought I would do anything but talk to me after your uterus doesn’t contract for 2.5 years and you turn 40.”
Now she’s once again getting honest about the experience and saying what other celebrities and influencers (for their own personal reasons) may not. “Everybody on camera is doing this shit, I just wanted to be real about it,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s not about needing to be slamming, because I’ve never been famous for being hot, but I’d reached a place where I was tired of looking at myself in the mirror.” She also mentioned that traditional weight-loss methods, like “grilled chicken and walks,” weren’t having an effect on her postpartum body. And she has no regrets.
A year ago, Schumer shared a picture of her C-section scar in a post that was flooded with comments from other moms who loved her positive relationship with her changing body. Liposuction, it seems, is another procedure Schumer has decided to embrace rather than hide. She has also been open about her journey with fillers and why she ultimately got them dissolved. A transparent queen!
In addition to her new Hulu dramedy, Schumer has another exciting project on the horizon: She’s hosting the Oscars with Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall. “Good morning, America. I’m not sure who thought this was a good idea, but I am hosting the Oscars along with my good friends Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall,” she said in an announcement video in February. “I better go watch some movies.”
