Amy Schumer gets real in new docuseries
On Wednesday, Schumer had a chance to speak with Eichner about her new upcoming docuseries, Expecting Amy, which follows her throughout her very difficult pregnancy.
"You've always been incredibly honest — brutally honest — in a hilarious way, but in this docuseries, you are so open, so raw physically, emotionally, and I want to know now that it’s getting released out into the world, how are you feeling?" Eichner asked the comedian.
"It’s so personal, it’s like my family — it couldn’t be any more personal," Schumer said, admitting that having movie critics "reviewing" her pregnancy was odd to her, but that she is still open to sharing her story.
Eichner then said that he has always been more of an introverted soul, and doesn't share too much with the public.
Schumer then replied, "I think there’s something wrong with me, truth be told. I don’t know why I’ve just always felt so unapologetic about that stuff."
She added, "In my private life, I’m pretty quiet myself. And my favourite people are actually introverts."
