Amy Schumer has always been willing to get candid about her personal life. Now, the 39-year-old comedian and actress is giving fans an even closer look at her complicated pregnancy journey, marriage and career in her HBO Max three-part docuseries, “Expecting Amy”.
Speaking with ET’s Rachel Smith, Schumer, who recently partnered with Tampax, explained why she wanted to share these intimate moments with viewers, as well as the hardships she went through while filming and what she learned about herself.
“I feel like people relate to me and I wanna be as open as possible so that I can help women feel better about themselves,” Schumer explained. “Because we all go through [so much]. [We] get our periods, we all [go through] all this stuff that we’re not supposed to talk about. And with a pregnancy, we’re supposed to make it look easy and I just really reject that, so I wanted people to hopefully feel better and educate other women about what might happen if they get pregnant.”
