Amy Schumer is used to making us laugh and she can take a joke too, but the comedian still gets emotional while talking about body image on The Today Show this morning. “It’s an emotional thing. It’s been a struggle for me my whole life, and especially just being in the entertainment industry. Standing on a stage in front of people, I can’t perform my best or be confident if I’m not sure — if I’m pulling at something (I’m wearing). And sometimes, I would just want to throw in the towel and be like, ‘I’m not gonna go do stand-up tonight.'”

Schumer thanks stylist, Leesa Evans ( on the set of Trainwreck), for helping her get more comfortable with her body! “My sister and I, we both have always dressed badly. Leesa had given me this gift of showing me how to dress and feel good. And she didn’t have to do this, she just did. She shopped for my sister also, and seeing my little sister wearing a little blazer and a shirt and looking just like a strong, beautiful woman, it was … to see this person I care the most about being given those tools was really moving for me.”
