After the first trailer for Amy Schumer’s latest film, I Feel Pretty, was released back in February, those who could get past the shock of Michelle Williams in uptight snob drag noticed the plot seemed a little familiar. It showed Amy Schumer’s regular-girl character hitting her head in a SoulCycle class, then magically believing she’s gorgeous. It was almost as if Hollywood decided to reboot Shallow Hal with a positive self-esteem twist. And some really weren’t having it. Amy Schumer recently spoke to Charles Bramesco at Vulture about the backlash I Feel Pretty got, and she doesn’t appreciate all the trailer judging.
Amy Schumer has a big movie coming out so it’s kind of a weird time for her to be parting ways with her longtime PR rep and manager. But she is. And she’s not making the change because Carrie Byalick pressured her to take Snatched. Page Six suggests that she might be dumping her because she used to date Amy’s new husband Chris Fischer.

According to sources, that last-minute guest list included Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Larry David, David Spade, Jerry Seinfeld, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Judd Apatow. And it does sound like it was all done at the last minute.
You should know by now that Mo’Nique is a fighter who’s not afraid to speak her mind. She accused Lee Daniels of black balling her for “not playing the game” and being difficult to work with, even after she won an Oscar in Daniel’s Precious. She also came after Oprah and Tyler Perry and accused them of conspiring to snatch the role in The Butler out from between her hairy legs. Now Netflix is on Mo’Nique’s hit list for what she perceives as color and gender bias based on the relative offers received by herself, Amy Schumer, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle for comedy specials on the network. And she’s asking for a boycott.
Amy Schumer can let out a hardy “I’m rich, biatch!” now, because she went to Netflix and told them she was worth as much as Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock and wasn’t laughed out of the room.
