Amy Schumer: The Critic That Bashed Me Wanted to Date Me


Amy Schumer reveals the critic who called her ugly also tried to date her.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Schumer said that a critic who has written about her unfortunate looks in a Trainwreck review, later asked her out.

“With Trainwreck coming out, I was like, everyone’s going to say, ‘She’s not pretty enough to be in this movie.’ And then only one dude wrote that, and people really attacked him, and then he redacted that and wanted to date me.”

Talk about a conflict of interest.

Even though Amy Schumer declined to identify the critic, E! Online suggests that it was probably Jeffrey Wells from the website Hollywood Elsewhere. In a review of Trainwreck, wells wrote:

“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. And yet that’s the apparent premise of Apatow’s film. Schumer’s wide facial features reminded me of a blonde Lou Costello around the time of Buck Privates, or Jennifer Aniston’s somewhat heavier, not-as-lucky sister who watches a lot of TV.”

Wells later apologized. In his apology, Wells wrote that Amy Schumer was “not grade-A or even B-plus material, certainly by my standards as well as those of any moderately attractive, fair-minded youngish heterosexual dude who’s feeling hormonal or what-have-you.”
