#WomanCrushWednesday: Amy Schumer
Voted "Class Clown" and "A Teacher's Worst Nightmare" of her high-school graduating class of 1999, it's no surprise to see Amy Schumer rise in the world of comedy. If you've seen Schumer on Comedy Central (Last Comic Standing, Inside Amy Schumer, Mostly Sex Stuff), you've probably discerned her favoured topic: Sex. Her candid observations and unapologetic humour — as well as that blazing GQ cover — are the reasons we unanimously voted her as this week's #WomanCrushWednesday. We've all heard that laughter is the best medicine, so join us in saluting Schumer's remedies.
On love: "I love love, and I'm very hopeful and was raised on all the fairy tales everyone else had. I just noted that everyone's mom was dead and real princesses get beheaded so I just have a more realistic take on it."
On relationships: "I just went through a break-up, actually. I'm not worried about meeting someone else or being lonely. I'm just worried about all the pictures. But my mom always told me, you know, ever since I was a little girl, 'Never put your face in them.'"
On life: "We're all human. No one's better than anybody. We all have stuff excreting from our dying bodies."
On her career: "I think every person who gets into stand-up does it because something went very wrong. Like, something happened. The successful ones, anyway. I don't know anybody who's like, 'No, everything was always f**king great.'"
On men: "I made out with a homeless guy by accident. I had no idea — he was really tan, he had no shoes on. I just thought it was, like, his thang, you know? I was like, 'He's probably in a band.'"
