Amy Schumer: Hollywood's New IT Girl!

Everyday, when opening the browsers of entertainment, we can't seem to escape Amy Schumer somewhere! She's now been crowned as Hollywood's IT girl, and here's some awesome reasons why: 

1. She's not afraid to be herself:

Amy told Maria Menounos that even though she LOVES the show, the only way she'd be on the Bachelorette as the contestant looking for love is if she was allowed to be herself, not cinematic "This is how my date went." She'd have to be able to share exactly what was going down.

2. She's not afraid to talk about sex:

This photo is the least risque in the set that Amy did for GQ, but she talks about how women are portrayed in movies and media, and what her thoughts are when it comes to men v. women stereotypes, according to E! To see more of the photos, including some naughtily implied things she did with C-3PO and R2-D2, head over to GQ here.

3. She can rock a little black dress, but explains that she doesn't dress like a celeb in public, otherwise known as DOWN TO EARTH.

E!Online highlighted Amy's curves in this LBD, but remembers and quotes her telling Elle Magazine the following:
"People do recognize me on the street, but I have the same friends, and I go to the same restaurants. My publicists want to kill me because I dress like a newly homeless runaway... They're a little disappointed when people see me on the street wearing my grossest sweatpants."

4. She's regarded as a powerful and positive feminist character:

The New York Times romanticizes Amy's stand up and public statements, saying that she "has emerged as a feminist hero, able to transform from the butt of her own jokes to a savvy debunker of double standards."

5. She is destroying and exposing double standards and stereotypes: 

Amy tells Glamour for their August issue, as quoted by E!, "For women, we're taught to eat less until we disappear. And trained to believe that if you don't look like everyone else, then you're unlovable... And men are not trained that way. Men can look like whatever and still date a supermodel."

She also tells Glamour that " I have a belly. And I have cellulite. And I still deserve love." 

 

Heck yes you do, Amy! We all do! Keep rockin' on Amy, don't ever change.
