This interviewer told Amy Schumer her character was 'skanky'. Big mistake

American actress Amy Schumer has been promoting her new film "Trainwreck" and we have a feeling she won’t be speaking to Australian radio station KIIS 101.1 again, after the most awkward interview... ever.

Presenter Matt Tilley proceeded to fixate on the binge-drinking element to Schumer’s character, whom she had already said was somewhat autobiographical, calling her “skanky”.


Being with a guy eclipses everything else, clearly everything else is thrown out the door in terms of decorum and dates and drinking and partying. Am I making sense to you?


I just think you’re wrong.


The reason you’re a trainwreck is because drinking and cheap sex is pretty much what drives you into realising the important things in life isn’t that a fair summation?


Um, no. No.


I feel like I’ve seen the wrong movie.


Yeah, I don’t know. I think that the point is that you realise she’s hurting herself and the people around her.


Yeah, um, that’s the point in the end, I’m talking about where you begin from, the premise though.



When asked what her ambitions were for the next few years, Schumer replies:

I just want to do whatever I have to do to do another interview with you again, if it means I have to make another movie, then I’ll do that.

The female interviewer suggests at this point that she might come by herself next time. Schumer’s response?

I love that idea. I love that idea.

To cap it all, at the end, the male interviewer comments:

This is exactly how it went with Russell Brand as well.
