Amy Schumer Fondly Recalls Watching Jennifer Lawrence Pee in a Bidet
In a video supplement to a new interview with Vanity Fair, Schumer, who covers the May 2016 issue, provides context for a few stories Lawrence recently shared with the magazine. In one, Lawrence elusively instructed: "Ask [Schumer] if she's ever seen someone pee in a bidet."
No surprise, Schumer dove right in.
"Yes, I have — you wanna know who it was?" Schumer asks in the clip above before flashing an iPad-image of Lawrence. "That girl, she sees a bidet, she's gonna piss in it. No, she's very clean, she's great, [but] bidets are for washing your asshole and not peeing in them. They're for something way more regal."
The print interview is not so shtick-y. Schumer, whose Inside Amy Schumer premiered its fourth season last week on Comedy Central, explains inconsistencies between standup comedy and her sudden and explosive fame, inevitable backlash that's typical for any recently risen star and, most devastating to Schumer, difficulties in making gun-control progress.
In July 2015, a gunman opened fire in a screening of Schumer's Trainwreck that left two people dead. Schumer's since teamed up with her cousin, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, to advocate for closing background-check loopholes through the Aiming for Change campaign, but Schumer told Vanity Fair she's still haunted by guilt over the horrific event.
"It’s like when the Dark Knight shooting happened, and in Paris. The idea of people trying to go out and have a good time — you know, like looking forward to it? I don’t know why that makes me the saddest," she recalls. "I was by myself in a hotel [when I heard], and I was just like, 'I wish I never wrote that movie.'"
