Amy Schumer Gets Real About Confidence And Aging

Amy Schumer has always been an open book, and, in a new interview, the comedian is as honest as ever.

Sitting down with interviewer and friend Jessica Seinfeld for her InStyle cover story, Schumer revealed that aging isn't something that really worries her. "What's good about not being a model is that it's not the thing I trade on. Once I start looking older, that won't affect me. I have never gotten anything done because I'm, like, so gorgeous," the 35-year-old joked.

She added, "I'm good-looking enough that I can work in the business. I get enough attention from men that I feel good. I see pictures of myself now, and I look younger than I think of myself. It hasn't scared me yet."

But the actress, who's admitted to hating how much weight she'd lost for her film Trainwreck (2015), told Seinfeld that it took a journey of self-discovery during her freshman year of college to really understand that looks aren't everything. "My parents made me think I was a genius supermodel, and it was kind of too late when I found out that they had been lying," she began. "But I was always really confident."

However, Schumer admitted some "bumps in the road" came when she felt intimidated by other girls in school. She revealed, "I lost all my self-esteem. I was confused about where my value lay." Schumer said it took "hitting rock bottom" after sleeping with her college crush to truly realize her self-worth.

"He called me one morning at 6, and I was like, 'Oh my god, he's really thinking about me this early in the day!' But it was just that he was still out, and I was his last-ditch effort to hook up," she said.

After reportedly doing the deed with the guy, Schumer had a revelation: "I was like, 'I've got to get out of here. I'm not going to be this girl.'"

Still, even when she's feeling her lowest, Schumer knows she still has value. But, on those bad days when her insecurities return, the Inside Amy Schumer (2013-) star tries to keep perspective: "That can break your heart or you can be like, 'This is pretty good. I'll take this level.'"

Schumer co-stars with Goldie Hawn in the upcoming action-comedy film Snatched, which hits theaters on May 12, 2017.
