Amy Schumer didn’t mince words when she spoke to Howard Stern about attending the Met Gala this past May.
While most people would give anything to walk the red carpet at fashion’s most glamorous night out, the comedian said that attending “felt like a punishment.”
“I left not the second I could. I left earlier than I should have been allowed,” the 35-year-old said. “I got to meet Beyoncé and she was like, ‘Is this your first Met Gala?’ and I was like, ‘It’s my last.’”
Schumer insisted that most Hollywood events involve “people doing an impression of having a conversation” and that the Met Gala is no different. If anything ― because of its emphasis on fashion ― the Met Gala was more horrifying to the actress.
“We’re dressed up like a bunch of fucking assholes,” Schumer said. “I have no interest in fashion. I like the idea of coming up with a way to dress that’s more comfortable, that looks cool, that sounds good to me. But other than that, I don’t care.”
Schumer also spoke about identifying as a “classic” introvert, which shocked audiences earlier this week when she appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
“I’m onstage and I’m yapping, and then I’m in my hotel room by myself,” the comedian said. “It seems strange, but yeah, I am a classic introvert.”
She added, “If I see someone even I like at the gym, I’m like, ‘Oh, God.’ It’s like, you wanna recharge and be alone.”
We are soooo with you, Amy.
