Amy Schumer: 'I've Always Had My Wrist Slapped for Being Myself'

The 34-year-old actress was accompanied by her leading man Bill Hader to promote the flick, which hits theaters in Australia on July 30th.

Amy recently opened up about the challenges that come with being herself and a female comedian.

“Oh, every day of my life. Always. I’ve always had my wrist slapped for being myself. Teachers. Parents. Restaurant managers. Some friends that have come and gone. Some boyfriends that have come and gone. And now [laughs] studios,” Amy told GQ. “I’ve opened for male comics for years and see the difference in the treatment. It’s the expectation of how a woman is going to be, or should be: Be sweet and likable and apologize for stealing oxygen from the world. Just be a pleasure and service whatever the experience is. And it’s “What a cunt—did you just hear her ask for that thing she’s supposed to have?” All I’ve ever wanted is to be treated like a comedian who’s performing at your venue, who sold it out. Just talk to me how you would talk to Bill Burr, who was here the week before me. Like Patton Oswalt, who’ll be here next week.”
