Amy Schumer’s debut film Trainwreck comes out this Friday and is loosely inspired by the comedian-turned-actress’ life before fame and fortune.
In the video above, Schumer talks about what it was like working with director Judd Apatow. Schumer praises Apatow for guiding her through her first movie without stamping it as a “Judd Apatow” film.
“It was a lot of stuff I was learning at the time, that I didn’t know about myself” Schumer said of writing the script.
The comedy also features a few professional athletes, including basketball players LeBron James and Amar’e Stoudemire, and professional wrestler John Cena. Schumer and co-star Bill Hader describe the athletes as effortlessly funny actors. “It wasn’t fair,” they joked.
