Schumer, 34, says she and her longtime friends were legitimately in shock when they learned the Oscar winner would be joining them on their yearly girls' getaway – not that they were complaining.

"She's the coolest chick you'll ever meet," the Trainwreck star said Monday night on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. "She's the best hang, she was like one of the gang."
