Amy Schumer isn’t stressing about aging.

The comedian covers InStyle’s May issue, where she talked all things beauty with chef Jessica Seinfeld. Schumer says that her parents instilled a strong sense of confidence in her from a young age. “My parents made me think I was a genius supermodel, and it was kind of too late when I found out that they had been lying,” she told the magazine. “I was always really confident, though there have been bumps in the road.”


The Trainwreck star said that she doesn’t expect growing older to hurt her sense of self-worth — even though she works in an industry obsessed with appearance. “What’s good about not being a model is that it’s not the thing I trade on,” she said. “I have never gotten anything done because I’m, like, so gorgeous.”
