Amy Schumer on Turning Down Daily Show Offer: 'Them Asking Me Made Me Cry!'

Originally posted 06/30/2015 07:25PM

Amy Schumer's career has never been hotter: Her skits on Inside Amy Schumer almost always go viral, her first movie, Trainwreck, is already getting rave early reviews and she totally stands a chance as the next Bachelorette.

So fans were a little disappointed when they learned earlier this month that the comedian was offered the job of succeeding Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show and turned it down. (Trevor Noah got the gig.)

Still, Schumer,34, stands by her decision.

Ali Fedotowsky Sounds Off on Bachelorette Controversy: 'Slut-Shaming Is NOT COOL!'

Bachelorettes have to stick together!

Former Bachelorette leading lady Ali Fedotowsky is jumping to Kaitlyn Bristowe's defense on her personal blog to counter the negative reaction Bristowe received for scenes of intimacy between her and Nick Viall.

On Monday's episode, Bristowe and Viall took their date back to her Dublin hotel room, where moans behind closed doors implied pretty clearly what had happened. The next day, Bristowe told ABC news she got caught up in the moment. She also said that her relationship with Viall, a finalist on Andi Dorfman's season of the show, just moved "a little quicker than the others."

Unfortunately for Bristowe, some viewers felt it was too quick and were vocal in their judgment.

Amy Schumer on Sexism in Entertainment: 'I Think People Hate Women'

Amy Schumer on Sexism in Entertainment: 'I Think People Hate Women'

Originally posted 05/27/2015 05:50PM

Amy Schumer has a theory about the inherent inequality of women in show business: "I think people hate women."

In a roundtable of comedic actresses assembled for The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, the Inside Amy Schumer creator and star adds, "I don't think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling a them."

Schumer continues, "My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I'm not saying all men hate women, but there's such an aggression."

For the magazine's June 5 issue, THR sat down with Schumer, Lena Dunham, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross and Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon to discuss the struggles of being a woman in entertainment and the sexism they've encountered throughout their careers.
