Amy Schumer is talking about her boyfriend, and revealing what her favorite part of being a woman is.
Talking to Jessica Seinfeld (Jerry’s wife) in the May issue of InStyle, the comedian says that what originally attracted her to her furniture designer boyfriend Ben Hanisch was his…penis. And other stuff, too.
“His penis. [Laughs] I could see he was kind in a real way. Some guys, they can put up a kind front, and then you find out that they’re sexual deviants, but I…God willing. [Laughs] No, and not that he’s not, God bless him. He’s cute. He’s kind,” Amy says, adding that in the past, she’s dealt with people who tried to dull her shine. “Just people who due to their own insecurity need you to be smaller. I feel like I can shine with him and also be nothing and we’re good. We’ve been together for almost a year and a half, but lately I’ll whisper in his ear, ‘I’m falling for you.’ And he’s just like, ‘We’ve been together for a while.’”
And the actress, out next in Snatched with Goldie Hawn, says although she doesn’t miss being single, she still needs alone time.
“Not ever [missing being single.] Except I need a lot of alone time. Right now I’m getting my period, and I just don’t like him, you know? My PMS is no joke…And it’s directed only toward him, but instead of being in denial about that, we try to work with it. [Laughs] Tonight’s vibe is ‘I don’t want you to even look at me or talk to me,’ and he will put on his headphones, do work on his computer, and I’m just in the room. He’s understanding. He’s too good about it. It actually annoys me…he’s like, ‘I’m going to give you your space, babe.’”
On being a woman, Amy says her favorite thing, even though she hasn’t done it yet, is the ability to have babies.
“That we can have babies. I’ll probably eventually want to do that. That feels like a really cool thing that women get to do that men can’t,” she says.
