Amy Schumer Pokes Fun at Weight During Acceptance Speech

Amy Schumer accepted the Critics’ Choice MVP award last night. She poked fun at her weight in a light hearted and funny acceptance speech. The 34-year-old actress and comedian joked that “if you are an actress and you have this, you have to write your own stuff.” And by this, Amy Schumer referenced her midriff. She also declared herself a plus size actress. The Trainwreck star thanked critics for allowing her to be seen and heard. She thanked the managers she fired for allowing her to make more money with new reps. She also thanked boyfriend and date to the show, Ben Hanisch. She walked away with two awards last night- MVP and best actress in a movie.
