"I Feel Pretty" star Amy Schumer has spilled her secret to confidence, and it's not something you'd likely expect.
In a recent interview with Gayle King at "CBS This Morning", the actress-comic revealed that receiving a tremendous amount of negativity online has toughened her up, made her immune, and actually enabled her to be much more confident than she used to be.
"You know, being a woman who uses her voice and expresses views that people disagree with, immediately they go to [insult] your appearance," she said, "I think a lot of women they don't use their full potential because they're afraid of being insulted."
According to Amy, who is flying high right now with the release of her new body-positive comedy and her recent marriage to chef Chris Fischer, gaining confidence isn't easy, but it's achievable.
She enthused, "For the last couple of years, I've just felt really good about myself and haven't tried to adjust...it's a constant journey and battle and process."
"I Feel Pretty" tells the story of a regular woman who wakes up from a SoulCycle accident believing she is the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. With this newfound confidence, she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly.
