Favorite Quotes from Amy Schumer
“I’m super grateful that there weren’t social media when I was a kid, but that sort of self-doubt crept in at a young age. It’s bullying. It’s the comments here and there, and maybe somebody says something to you that they don’t even mean to be a mean-spirited comment, but they’ll just kind of say it to you in passing.” – Amy Schumer
“I think standup is pretty good for an introvert because you are performing, but, I mean, it’s on your own terms. There are so many people in the room, but it’s a one-sided conversation. And you actually don’t have to interact – unless you want to.” – Amy Schumer
“What’s good about not being a model is that it’s not the thing I trade on. Once I start looking older, that won’t affect me. I have never gotten anything done because I’m, like, so gorgeous. I’m good-looking enough that I can work in the business.” – Amy Schumer
“I have a healthy relationship with food. My problem is, as a comic, I eat dinner late. But I’ll have a smoothie for breakfast every morning, and I keep it pretty low-carb and healthy during the day. At night, I’ll have a basic protein, quinoa, and vegetables.” – Amy Schumer
