Amy Schumer on abusive ex: 'I was afraid for my life'
Amy Schumer has opened up about being trapped in a physically abusive relationship in a "SuperSoul Conversations" interview with Oprah Winfrey.
 
It had been with an ex-boyfriend, the actress-comedian revealed, and he had broken her down body and spirit until he had her "convinced" she "wasn't lovable". 
 
Amy shared, "I got hurt 'by accident' a lot. It was that. He didn't realize how hard he grabbed me or shook me or pushed me, and I would fall and hit something, and I'd be hurt."
 
"I can picture being thrown on the hood of a car like it was an hour ago," she continued, "and running from him, carrying my shoes, and running into backyards trying to get away from him because I was afraid for my life."
 
"It’s so out of body. You think, ‘I’m not this woman. Who is this woman that's running from her boyfriend? This can’t be me' and then you realize there is no 'kind of woman'. It happens to all women.”
 
 
Amy added, sagely, "You don't choose to fall in love with someone who hurts you, and you can be in love with someone who hurts you."
 
Amy is now blissfully married to chef Chris Fischer. Her new movie "I Feel Pretty" will hit theaters this May 2.
