Amy Schumer Talks R-Rated ‘Snatched’ Jokes, Being Nude on Film
Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn team up in a mother-daughter kidnap romp that sticks to the surface and earns too few laughs.
Summer brings light entertainment and the truth is that they are grateful. One key of this year is the comedy ‘Snatched’, a women’s buddy movie played by Amy Schumer and an overly collaborative Goldie Hawn that still does not prevent us from enjoying it as it once did.
Amy Schumer’s new movie “Snatched” has plenty of stars in it, including Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes, and recent show guest Ike Barinholtz. But on Wednesday’s Stern Show, Amy told Howard the real scene-stealer might be her own boob, which pops out at one point in the film.
“My right tit … full nip,” Amy said of the comical nude scene which occurs after her character gets driven home on a motorcycle while intoxicated.
Since it’s only one boob that makes an appearance, Howard wondered if Amy had a preference for which one she showed.
“The right one is the star and then my left one’s, like, the runner-up,” she said. Baring her breast on camera was Amy’s idea, too. “It was planned. Oh yeah, I wrote it in. It’s so unnecessary,” she told Howard. “I just thought it was funny.”
“It felt good to shoot it. Like, it was kind of empowering,” Amy continued. “Let’s have them looked at before they’re on the floor.”
Snatched Nude Scene Left Amy Schumer’s Brother Traumatized
Amy Schumer recalls the moment that will forever scar her poor brother. And perhaps a few of you true Schumer haters out there as well.
“I watched the movie with him, my sister [Kim Caramele] and I rewrote this movie, we watched it with our brother and, you know, my boob comes out in this movie. Right before we said, ‘Don’t look!’ We paused it, we tried to skip ahead but it skipped right to that part. He was like, gagging, it was awful. We honestly haven’t made eye contact since, it’s very uncomfortable.”
And that’s to be expected. Not because Amy Schumer is any kind of monster, but many a Hollywood star has told stories about how difficult it is to watch a nude scene with a family member. Which has made for quite a few awkward Hollywood premieres in the past 100 years, ever since the first nude scene was shown on the big screen. On that same note, we’re sure there are just as many people who will now drag their moms to see Snatched under the guise that its a fun ‘Mother’s Day’ date when its actually just an excuse to catch a glimpse at what Schumer is hiding under her blouse. It’s increasingly difficult in this day and age to admit, and even some millennials refuse to do so, that looking and watching nudity is a fun and natural thing to do. When did our society become so repressed?
Jonathan Levine, who got his start with the horror thriller All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, directs this comedy, which stars Schumer and Goldie Hawn as a mother and daughter who get kidnapped while vacationing in South America. So far, the reviews have been mixed. Some critics are calling it the worst movie of the year, while our own Julian Roman recommended it as one of the year’s funniest outings. Amy Schumer went onto say in her interview that she quite enjoyed woking with her entire team on this outing, and will miss everyone terribly when the press tour is over.
“We’ve been emotional about it all day. This is the end of the line for us. We will still see each other, but not as much, so we’re sad. We’re sad it’s coming to an end, you know? We’re crazy about each other.”
