Hollywood Actress' Awesome Response To Movie Critic Who Attacked Her Weight

An up-and-coming comedienne has hit back at a scathing film reviewer after he made nasty comments about her weight and appearance.


The unfair attack on Amy Schumer, who stars in Trainwreck, the latest project from Bridesmaids producer Judd Apatow, came after the movie trailer was released.

“Director Judd Apatow is once again introducing a chubby, whipsmart, not conventionally attractive, neurotically bothered female comic to a mass audience,” movie critic Jeffrey Wells from Hollywood Elsewhere wrote.

“First Melissa McCarthy in ‘Bridesmaids’ (’11), then Lena Dunham in HBO’s ‘Girls’ (’12) and now Amy Schumer, the star and writer of ‘Trainwreck’ as well as the star of Comedy Central’s ‘Inside Amy Schumer’.”

“She’s obviously sharp and clever and funny as far as the woe-is-me, self-deprecating thing goes, but there’s no way she’d be an object of heated romantic interest in the real world.”

But the talented actress and screenwriter had the perfect response to the harsh review, taking it all in her stride.  

“I didn't read the thing. I think this is probably a good thing. I like that he was the only one that said anything,” she told USA Today.

“It was such an example of sort of the reason for trolling. It seems like a rewarding experience for people who do that stuff. From the bottom of my heart — I could not care less.”

Schumer also shared some hilarious responses on social media…

Wells has since released an apology, if you can even call it that, titled Sorrow Uncorks Everything.

“She’s a first-class talent and deserves more respect than what I gave her. I know I’m not thinking wrong but I’m probably saying it wrong from time to time,” he wrote.

“I wasn't incorrect in saying that social attractiveness standards have changed over the past decade or so, largely due to the creations of one Judd Apatow and those who've climbed aboard his ferry boat.”
