Amy Schumer Is Your ‘Star Wars’ Fantasy Brought to Life for GQ
Looking at you, Star Wars nerds…
Leave it to Amy Schumer to bring to life one of the most notorious Star Wars fantasies (Princess Leia’s sex symbol slave costume) in the most campy way possible, and slay like a lightsaber for a GQ shoot entitled, “Amy Schumer Is the Funniest Woman in the Galaxy.” These are also just the kind of sexist shoots Schumer poked fun at during her acceptance speech at the 2015 Glamour Women of the Year awards…
With a laugh, she said during her speech, “Every comic in the room knows that when a female comic has a photo shoot, they’re like, ‘Oh, can we hold this plastic dick over your head? We’re gonna shoot actual cum out of it onto your head.’ They’re like, ‘You’re gonna be a cum dumpster,’ and you’re like, ‘Thank you for having me!’ But Glamour is the first magazine that was just like, ‘Smile!’ “
Well. This shoot shows Schumer getting pretty frisky with a lightsaber and one of R2-D2’s knobs. Channeling Carrie Fisher in the 1983 classic Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Schumer plays with a blue lightsaber, sucks on C-3PO’s finger, crawls into bed topless with C-3PO and R2-D2, does the cancan with a group of Stormtroopers, and more.
Her interview with the men’s magazine comes out on Monday.
Trainwreck, starring and written by Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow, comes out this Friday and is sure to be the movie rom-com of the summer. Be sure to watch the trailer here and see it in theaters this weekend!
