Amy Schumer covers the August cover of GQ. It has a Star Wars theme, because of course it does. I actually wonder how GQ got permission from Disney/Lucasfilm to use Chewbacca, C3PO, R2D2 and stormtroopers in this shoot. Not only to use those characters, but to put them in heavily sexualized positions, like C3PO in bed with Amy in some kind of postcoital tableau. Do you think this is gross? Is it too much? I think it’s funny, but also slightly disturbing to sexualize the robots, you know?
You can see the full GQ slideshow here. GQ hasn’t released any excerpts from the cover story yet, but I’m sure it will be a pretty good piece. Love her or hate her, Schumer is turning out to be a great interview.
Schumer is getting major magazine covers these days because she’s promoting Trainwreck. The film is getting surprisingly good reviews – people think it’s funny, brash and feminist. Reviewers are praising Schumer in particular for the screenplay, which she wrote (of course).
Here’s a Funny or Die skit that Amy, Bill Hader, Judd Aptow and LeBron did together. LeBron is funny!
