Amy Schumer rejected the chance to be retouched in ‘I Feel Pretty’.
The 36-year-old actress plays a young woman struggling with insecurities in her new movie, and Amy has revealed she insisted that her image wasn’t changed in post-production.
Speaking to ‘CBS This Morning’, Amy explained: “I said, ‘Do not retouch me in this movie. Do not retouch anything.’
“You see my cellulite. You see my, my rolls, whatever ... It’s like, I feel great.”
Amy’s latest project has received criticism in some quarters, with people claiming that is has body-shamed the actress.
But she’s rubbished those suggestions, insisting it is intended to make people “feel good about themselves”.
She shared: “I want other women, other people to feel good about themselves. And I think walking out of this movie, you really do.”
Meanwhile, Amy previously explained that in spite of some of the negativity surrounding her new movie, she hopes it will prove to be a source of inspiration for women.
The Hollywood actress revealed she wants women to feel “empowered” when they watch ‘I Feel Pretty’, which also stars Emily Ratajkowski and Michelle Williams.
She said: “We want women to feel empowered, we don’t want anything to hold them back.
“If you feel someone is going to insult you, call you ugly or fat, it holds you back. I don’t want anything to keep women from their full potential.”
