Filming commitments took a temporary back seat as Amy Schumer spent time with her visiting father on Friday afternoon. The American actress, 36, was still dressed in character as she planted a kiss on dad Gordon Schumer’s cheek during a welcome break on the set of forthcoming film I Feel Pretty.
Clearly delighted to be visited by her father, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, Amy flung her arms around his shoulders as he mingled with members of the crew. The comedienne was only 12 years old when her father was diagnosed with MS, shortly before his divorce from Amy’s mother, Sandra.
‘In terms of my dad being sick, it was just confusing to me, especially the way MS works,’ she told Barbara Walters in 2015. ‘He was in physical pain. That’s when I kind of took the lead and took care of everybody in my family. ‘I would keep them – I would keep everybody laughing. I’m the one who ties it all together.’
The actress also reflected on the inevitable emotional toll her father’s 22-year struggle with the illness had taken on the family. ‘Some days he’s really good and he’s with it and we’re joking around. And some days I go to visit my dad and it’s so painful. I can’t believe it.’ Amy plays Renee Barrett In I Feel Pretty, a woman whose head injury leads her to believe a spell was cast on her to make her look incredibly beautiful.
As a result, Renee believes she’s drop dead gorgeous, and she even gets promoted at work because of her newfound self-confidence. The star-studded also cast includes Emily Ratajkowski, Michelle Williams, and Rafe Spall. Directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, I Feel Pretty is scheduled for release on June 29, 2018.
