I love Amy Schumer. She really is my favourite comedian and actress in the world right now. She is funny, smart and most importantly, she is capable of calling a spade a spade. She has often spoken about her body image issues and how she dealt with them growing up.
In the 2016 Pirelli calendar, released Monday, photographer Annie Leibovitz made a “strong set of very simple portraits” for display. But the photo that seems to be sparking the most conversation – about her “realness”- is Amy’s. She’s been receiving a lot of flak for it on the internet because they’re calling it ‘too real,’ as if there were such a thing. But our girl will not have any of that. She posted her photo on her Facebook with a caption that makes a very important point about beauty.
Good on you, Amy! <3
