Amy Schumer Left With Insecurity After 'Puffier' Face Comments Amid Cushing Syndrome
Variety Magazine

A few months after receiving comments on her 'puffier' face, the 'Inside Amy Schumer' star reveals that she 'has moments of self-doubt' before she quickly got over it.

AceShowbiz - Amy Schumer has opened up about the impacts of body-shaming. The actress portraying Amy Townsend in "Trainwreck" felt insecure about herself after receiving unpleasant comments on her "puffier" face.

The 42-year-old comedian revealed the aftermath of the hurtful online comments in a new interview published on Tuesday, April 30. Speaking to Variety, she said, "The people who like me are not going to care if my face is puffy."

Amy went on to say, "Everyone has moments of self-doubt. I rose up and was like, 'F**k it, let's go.' " In the article, the magazine noted, "That experience created some insecurity, but she quickly got over it."

The revelation came a few months after Amy made an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". After she showed up in the February 14 episode of the TV program, social media users noticed that her face appeared swollen.

It prompted viewers, including doctors, to comment on the "Life & Beth" star's different look. While some viewers left hateful comments on her appearance, several others assumed that she was taking steroids to treat inflammation. In the meantime, medical professionals speculated that she had an autoimmune condition that can trigger swelling.

On February 15, Amy assured that she was "okay" as she shared an update on her health. On Instagram, she penned, "And thank you so much for everyone's input about my face! I've enjoyed feedback and deliberation about my appearance as all women do for almost 20 years." She then admitted, "And you're right it is puffier than normal right now."

On the reason why, the "Inside Amy Schumer" star explained, "I have endometriosis an auto immune disease that every woman should read about. There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now but I'm okay."

"Historically women's bodies have barely been studied medically compared to men. The book 'All in Her Head' does a good job explaining this," she added. "I also believe a woman doesn't need any excuse for her physical appearance and owes no explanation. But I wanted to take the opportunity to advocate for self love and acceptance of the skin you're in."

Later that month, Amy revealed that she has been battling Cushing syndrome. "So finding out I have the kind of Cushing that will just work itself out and I'm healthy was the greatest news imaginable," she stated. "It has been a crazy couple weeks for me and my family. Aside from fears about my health, I also had to be on camera having the internet chime in. But thank God for that. Because that's how I saw something was wrong."
