Amy Schumer gets candid about comedy, fame, and finding love with Ben Hanisch

We told you yesterday that Amy Schumer has sadly had to pull out of the live-action Barbie movie due to scheduling conflicts.

We know she received quite a bit of backlash from body-shamers for being cast as Barbie, but we have to admit that we were thrilled she had been given the part and couldn’t wait to see what she would have done with it. Never mind…

Amy Schumer may no longer be stepping into Barbie’s shoes, but that doesn’t mean she’s disappearing from the spotlight.

Au contraire, we’re going to be seeing quite a lot of the blonde comedienne over the next year or so. Which is why we’re pretty excited to find her on Glamour UK’s May cover!

Her interview, as you would expect, is a great read – but our favourite part has to be the part where she gushes about her boyfriend Ben Hanisch…

“He’s very protective of me, like, not overprotective, but if someone’s taking pictures of me or filming in a restaurant, he’ll start taking pictures of them,” she said.

“He’s really cool; it’s not a problem to be around any of the sorts of people who are at these events. He takes it all in his stride.

“But when I say, “Shall we get out of here?” he’s like, “Yes!” I’m so lucky that I met him. And he hadn’t seen any of my work before we met…”

Aww! As in love as she may be, Amy Schumer still doesn’t mind talking about all the hunks of Hollywood, in  particular who  she would like to cast as a love interest in her new movie…

“I wouldn’t kick Tom Hardy out of bed,” she said.

“Christian Bale, Idris Elba…I mean, this is just a list of who I wanna sleep with, right?”

You can read the rest of Amy’s candid but downright hilarious interview in Glamour UK’s May issue which hits newsstands Thursday 30 March.
