Amy Schumer Clears Up Equal Pay Row Over Netflix Special


Amy Schumer Netflix Chris Rock Dave Chappelle

Amy Schumer has taken to Instagram to clear up some misinterpretations that have been made after a report concerning the amount she’s being paid to appear in a new Netflix comedy special.

The 36 year old star clarified what was stated in a report by Variety earlier this week, which claimed that Schumer asked for a higher fee to star in a Netflix stand-up comedy special after learning that Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle were each getting paid $20 million for their shows on the streaming service.

She said that, while she did ask for a pay increase on her original $11 million deal for her ‘The Leather Special’, she did not ask to get paid the same amount as Rock and Chappelle – because they’re the two of greatest comedians ever and deserve more, according to her.

Amy Schumer Recalls Her Strangest Escapades


Amy Schumer Goldie Hawn

Amy Schumer once gave her number to a swinger.

The 35-year-old actress has admitted an older woman, who admitted she engaged in group sex, complemented her and told her she was ''cute'', to which Amy responded by passing over her number.

However the stand up comedian has claimed she misunderstood the entire situation and thought the randy female was actually a jive dancer.

Snatched Review

Very Good

It doesn't really matter that the script for this lively action-comedy is paper thin: teaming up Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn on-screen is a stroke of genius. These two comic actresses have impeccable timing, and throw everything into this madcap jungle adventure. Yes, the dialogue could have been a lot sharper, the story more coherent and the themes more resonant. But as a guilty pleasure, it's a lot of fun.

It opens as Emily (Schumer) decides to continue with her plans to take a luxury holiday in Ecuador, even though she's just split from her boyfriend (Randall Park). Although taking her mother Linda (Hawn) wasn't her first choice. As they settle in at the beach resort, they meet Ruth (Wanda Sykes) and her ex-military friend Barb (Joan Cusack), who warn them about gangs of drug dealers who kidnap tourists. Sure enough, Emily and Linda are grabbed by Colombian criminal Morgado (Oscar Jaenada) and taken to the Amazon, where they escape and go on the run with the help of a rugged but pompous explorer (Christopher Meloni). Meanwhile back in America, Emily's oddball brother (Ike Barinholtz) is pestering a government official (Bashir Salahuddin) to find his missing mother and sister.

Instead of working out a clever story or writing something witty, the filmmakers rely instead on the skills of Schumer and Hawn. This leaves the movie feeling like a series of random set-pieces in which the actresses improvise a lot of goofiness, which is shaped into something vaguely sensible in the edit. The overall narrative is flimsy at best, but there are hilarious moments scattered through every scene, and Schumer and Hawn thankfully underplay most of it.

Emily is left completely broken-hearted when her musician boyfriend breaks up with her in favour of a life of groupies as his band takes off. They were meant to be vacationing to Ecuador together, and she refuses to give up an excuse for fun at this stage in her 30s so Emily decides to take her slightly reluctant mother instead. She also wants to help her mom revisit some of the fun she had in her youth. Unfortunately, they find themselves kidnapped by a mysterious man they meet in a restaurant and only manage to escape with difficulty. By now they are in the middle of nowhere with no knowledge of their wild surroundings and they're definitely starting to wish they'd never come to South America in the first place.

Amy Schumer Buys Back Her Father's Farm For Christmas


Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has surprised her father with a pretty spectacular early Christmas present – she bought back the family’s farm they lost over 20 years ago to bankruptcy.

The 35 year old comedian and Trainwreck actor took to Instagram on Monday (December 19th) to share a screenshot of a FaceTime conversation she had with her father, Gordon, when she announced the heart-warming news to him.

“Today I bought my father’s farm back,” she said. When Schumer was around 12 years old, the family lost their farm when her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. At that point, they moved to Long Island near New York.
