"She really wants to be pretty, and just feel all the parts of life that open up to you when you're just like, gorgeous".
The 36-year-old comedian debuts the first trailer for her upcoming movie, I Feel Pretty, on Thursday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she portrays Renee Barrett, a woman who is struggling with her self-esteem because she obsesses about outward beauty.
"My character Renee, she kind of has low self esteem", Schumer told Ellen. After falling off a stationary bike while at the gym, she experiences a head injury that changes her self-perception entirely: in her mind, she looks like a supermodel, despite her appearance remaining unchanged. Today the trailer for Schumer's newest project, I Feel Pretty, is now out for moviegoers to take a look. Suddenly, she sees herself as utterly lovely, and with her newfound confidence, unleashes herself onto the not-so-eager world.
STXfilms' new comedy I Feel Pretty is written and directed by the team of Abby Kohn & Marc Silverstein.
The film is both co-directed and co-written by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, known for writing numerous last few decades' most deceptively offensive rom-coms (Never Been Kissed, The Vow, etcetera) and also stars Busy Phillips and Aidy Bryant. After she hits her head in a spin class, she thinks she's gorgeous and gets all the perks that come with a hot girl membership card.
