The celebrity donned a scarlet off-the-shoulder Dolce & Gabbana gown for the cover of July’s issue of Vogue, which saw the beautiful Amy Schumer lying on the grass and giving the camera a come-hither stare. While Schumer is known for her stand-up comedy, the comedy she uses as material stems from experiences and insights that she has learned as she was growing up and the “hook-up culture” that came with it. Amy revealed that while she was growing up, it was actually her Catholic school best friends who were experimenting with the opposite sex and not her.
Amy Schumer spoke about her early years and the opposite sex, saying that while she was always “boy crazy,” it was her friends who were promiscuous and not her.
“They were acting out sexually years before me. I loved being around that, but I didn’t have sex until I was 17. And I didn’t give a blow job until I was well into college.”
She also noted that she did not gravitate towards certain boys because her love of comedy was not something her girlfriends could relate to. Amy also admitted that her confidence took a nose dive when she started her freshman year at Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1999.

Amy Schumer spoke about her experiences in college, guessing that she was “maybe in the twenty-fifth percentile in hotness.” She had an interesting way of justifying her decision to sleep with six different men in her sophomore year.
“I was like, ‘Maybe I’m like Samantha in Sex and the City and I’ll just keep this train movin’ so that I don’t get attached to anybody.’ And you won’t believe this, but that did not work out. But I always thought that sex was funny. I was always interested in it.”
It’s now a little over a decade after she finished college, and Amy Schumer has found love with Ben Hanisch, a 29-year-old furniture designer from Chicago, and she couldn’t help but gush about him. It goes without saying that Amy is madly in love, and they, as a couple, are still in the honeymoon phase.

Her successful and loving relationship certainly helped Amy Schumer to put her insecurities behind, but Amy admitted that she has had her hesitations about posing for Vogue, which is often referred to by many as the fashion bible.
The Trainwreck actress also has a memoir coming out in August, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. Amy Schumer kept a diary as she was growing up, especially from the ages of 12 to 22, and has also written numerous speeches and essays, but she admitted that she was not sure if she would be able to write a book until she wrote a proposal and received a positive response from the editors.
According to Vogue, the editors were pleased and excited by the book proposal and gave Amy Schumer $9 million in advance.
Amy Schumer spoke on her end goal for life and career and wondered how her goals compared to other comediennes.
“I wouldn’t know what motivates Tina Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. This insatiable drive. I have it too. Sometimes I feel like they’re hustling, they want something, and they’re not going to stop until they get it, and they play the game. I am very into making up my own rules. Like, I don’t want to play the game and succeed at it. I want to redefine it. That’s the only way I can deal with it. Maybe that’s naive.”
