All hail Amy Schumer.
The 33-year-old comedian sat down with Entertainment Weekly reporter Danielle Nussbaum at the SXSW festival on March 16 according to Cosmopolitan.com she discussed her new movie "Trainwreck," her thoughts on feminism and just how much her stage persona reflects her real life.
"I think people know that [my persona] is a major exaggeration," Schumer told Nussbaum. "Look, I'm no stranger to a cock... I completely love sex and I don't feel shy about feeling entitled to an orgasm if I'm having sex with somebody. But I don't really have that much of it and I've been in mostly monogamous relationships. But then in between if I meet someone and I'm attracted to them, I'm gonna have sex with them."

Nussbaum asked Schumer what she thinks of Jerry Seinfeld's recent comment that there aren't any barriers for women in comedy. According to Cosmopolitan, Schumer agreed with Seinfeld and explained how comedy in particular lends itself to a more even playing field: "I think if you're funny, you're funny, and people seek it out... I feel like there's always been an abundance of funny women. I grew up loving Gilda [Radner] and Carol [Burnett] and Lucille Ball and Whoopi Goldberg."
Schumer also explained her thoughts on feminism and why she identifies as a feminist.
"[It's the] social, political, economic equality of women," she said. "I think if you're against that, you're a crazy person. Or you don't know what it means. And that we don't actually have it is a bummer. It seems like we should be further along. That's why it was so exciting to see Patricia Arquette shout that out about equal pay because it's insane that it's still an issue. But there are definitely a million issues. And I think there's still that weird association with the word feminist and, I don't know. I think people are afraid for some reason."
Sounds about right to us.
