When comedian and actress Amy Schumer started getting famous people were more than cruel. She was constantly shamed online, especially for her body and became a major part of her standup. She’s joked about how she is what Hollywood calls “fat” and how people said she couldn’t weigh more than 140 pounds without hurting peoples eyes… ouch.
Instead of letting the hate get to her, Amy posts powerful photos of her naked body with no shame—and has even landed huge cover shoots for sexy magazines like GQ. Along with body positivity, she is also very vocal about female empowerment and has been quoted saying “I am a woman with thoughts, and questions, and s**t to say.” She has even been open about the fact that she was raped.
Amy is also very outspoken about the unfairness of female beauty standards. In an interview with Glamour she said, “for women, we’re taught to eat less until we disappear. And trained to believe that if you don’t look like everyone else, then you’re unlovable. And men are not trained that way. Men can look like whatever and still date a supermodel. I’m proud of what I said. I think it’s good to see somebody saying: I have a belly. And I have cellulite. And I still deserve love. And to catch the old D. And to not apologize.”
Furthering her crusade on female body image, Amy even criticized the Kardashians on SNL calling them “bad role models” for losing so much weight and getting plastic surgery. Although she was later called out by Khloe Kardashian for body shaming, Amy had no regrets and stood by what she said.
The comedian recently got married and her carefree, body positive realness is an inspiration for everyone to be themselves. Not to mention she also has the coolest friends to frolic around in bikinis —Jennifer Lawrence, anyone?
Proud of the skin she’s in, Amy often uses her nakedness to focus attention on an all-inclusive and body-positive message. Here are 10 times Amy’s most naked moments on Instagram sent that message loud and clear!
