Amy Schumer Goes Topless, Shares Poignant Caption for Pirelli Calendar Photo

Amy Schumer goes topless for the December photo in the 2016 Pirelli Calendar, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

The 34-year-old actress and comedian posted the photo on her Twitter account along with a poignant caption.

“Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman. Thank you @annieleibovitz,” Amy wrote.

Also featured in the calendar are Serena Williams, singer Patti Smith, actress Yao Chen, and more.

“When Pirelli approached me, they said they wanted to make a departure from the past. They suggested the idea of photographing distinguished women. After we agreed on that, the goal was to be very straightforward. I wanted the pictures to show the women exactly as they are, with no pretense,” Annie said in a statement. “I’m a great admirer of comediennes. The Amy Schumer portrait added some fun. It’s as if she didn’t get the memo saying that she could keep her clothes on.”

Kanye West & Annie Leibovitz Release Joint Statement Regarding Wedding Photos!

Kanye West and famed photographer Annie Leibovitz have just released a joint statement about not teaming up for his wedding photos!

Kanye West’s comments about Annie Leibovitz while speaking at the 2014 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival have been taken out of context and sensationalized,” the statement said. “Although Kanye expressed frustration that he was not able to collaborate with Annie Leibovitz at his recent wedding, he is not assigning blame, and is not accusing Annie in any way. Kanye and Annie’s representatives were in negotiations for weeks that were not completed by the time of the wedding. Annie would have been happy to do the portrait but she was never confirmed.”

The statement added, “It was Kanye’s dream to bring together for the wedding his favorite creatives – Riccardo Tisci on the dress, Vanessa Beecroft on the experience, and Andrea BocelliKim’s favorite singer – singing Kim [Kardashian]’s favorite song as she walked down the aisle. The first choice to capture one of the most special days in Kim and Kanye’s life: Annie Leibovitz. Annie Leibovitz – the legendary photographer responsible for Kim and Kanye’s recent Vogue cover – is not known to shoot weddings. But Kanye West dreams big. He loves and respects Annie as a true artist and wanted to bring her eye for beauty to the imagery of the event.”
