She wasn’t afraid to talk about her pregnancy liposuction and weight loss.
And Amy Schumer flaunted her results on Tuesday when she posted a cheeky Instagram video of herself dancing topless.
The 40-year-old comedian and actress had fun during the downtime as she prepared to dress for the Academy Awards ceremony later this month, which she is set to co-host.
Do a little dance: Amy Schumer, 40, wasn’t afraid to take a little risk as she danced around the dressing room topless in a video she posted to Instagram on Tuesday.
Amy was shown from behind as she stood in a dressing room where she was completely naked except for a pair of plain black panties.
Her blonde hair was casually tied into a tousled bun as she turned her head back to the camera, revealing she was going make-up free for the updo.
The look also highlighted the Trainwreck star’s lower back tattoo, which she previously teased.
‘Oscar and @lifeandbethhulu. I can’t stop dancing,” she wrote in her caption, adding the hashtags “#badtattoo” and “#baddancing.”
Have fun with it: “Oscar and @lifeandbethhulu fitting. I can’t stop dancing,” she wrote in her caption, adding the hashtags “#badtattoo” and “#baddancing”
Showing off: Amy was in the photo from behind and was naked down to her black panties. Her blonde hair was tied in a messy bun as she turned her head back to the camera, revealing she was going make-up free for the makeover.
No shame: The look also highlighted the Trainwreck star’s lower back tattoo, which she previously teased in her memoir The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo
The woman filming couldn’t hold back her laughter as Amy threw her arms in the air and twisted her hips.
She stepped forward with small baby steps to the beat of hip hop playing faintly in the background.
Amy has not been shy about her lower back tattoo in the past, and it even featured prominently in the title of her memoir, The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo.
In that book, she recounts how her mother drove her and her sister Kim to ‘tribal’ ink when she was 20, and while she’s not afraid to make fun of it, she stresses that she doesn’t regret the experience.
“Now that all my work, my relationships, my tweets, my body parts, and my sandwiches are being publicly scrutinized, I’m proud to have called myself a flawed, normal person before anyone else,” she wrote. “I’ve been told everything in the book, but I’ve already called myself a bum, so the haters will have to come up with something new.”
Amy has been working on preparations for her guest appearance at the Oscars, where she will be joined by comedian Wanda Sykes and actress Regina Hall.
On stage: Amy has been working on preparations for her guest appearance at the Oscars, where she will be joined by fellow comedian Wanda Sykes and actress Regina Hall. She told THR last week that her lawyers pressured her to tone down her material; see in 2018
In her Hollywood Reporter profile — published last week — Amy said she plans to inject as much sardonic humor as possible into the iconic ceremony, though her lawyers have already instructed her to tone it down.
“I emailed my lawyer about the two jokes and he said, ‘No!'” she admitted.
Although Amy seemed to think her material was up for snuff, it didn’t go over well at first when she tried out some ideas with the Oscars producers via Zoom about a month ago and they were silent.
Outfit: Amy opted for an all-black look as she was interviewed on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday
Casual: The star wore a black top with a belt at the waist along with matching trousers
Relaxed: The comedian completed her look for the day with sunglasses
“I was like, ‘Can you hear me?'” she recalled, though in retrospect she thought it was funny.
The stand-up comic considers herself a connoisseur of “p***y jokes”, although she admitted her longtime ABC fans are unlikely to hear any when the iconic awards show airs on Sunday, March 27.
She recounted the beginning of one graphic nominee-themed joke that could have kicked off her opening set: “My husband is throwing me, or as he calls it, the Squid Game. So he’s up my nightmare alley…”
Although she still planned to “take a few risks,” warnings from her legal team kept her away from the jokes she would normally tell on stage.
Love Story: She was also cast in her Hulu series Life & Beth, which is inspired by her romance with husband Chris Fischer, who is on the autism spectrum; seen in October in NYC
Amy also mentioned that she is editing her series Life & Beth, which premieres on March 18.
The series is inspired by her romance with husband Chris Fischer, a chef who is on the autism spectrum.
She’s up against Michael Cera, who plays a version of her husband, and was perfect for his ability to incorporate some of Chris’ mannerisms without simply copying him.
Amy joked that it helped that he wasn’t just ‘some British lumberjack’.
She recounted how some of her husband’s behaviors — which were likely related to him being on the spectrum, even if he didn’t know it at the time — initially seemed like warning signs.
“Are these red flags? Am I ignoring the red flags?” she recalled asking herself, something her character Beth would also ask.
Co-stars: Michael Cera stars opposite her in the series as her husband. She praised Cera for studying her husband’s ways without merely imitating them; they still make up Life & Beth
