Leave it to Amy Schumer to take any situation and turn it into a laugh-fest - even if she herself is the butt of the joke! But that's exactly what the legendary comedian did following a botched facial filler that left her looking like a villain (her words, not ours).
Unlike most celebs who often deny even successful plastic surgery procedures, Amy was loud and proud with her cosmetic misstep on Instagram. "I tried getting fillers. Turns out I was already full. Thank God you can dissolve them," the comedian joked with her 11+ million followers. According to Schumer, the end result of her elective procedure was far from flattering and left her feeling like one of Disney's more recent villains. "I looked like #malificent," the I Feel Pretty actress quipped of Angelina Jolie's look from the film.
Fans and fellow celebs were quick to jump into the comments section and send the actress some words of encouragement following her reversal procedure. "You are so beautiful! No fillers needed," wrote Isla Fisher, a fellow actress, and fan of Schumer's. Another supporter of Amy's hopped in with some advice for the celeb. "Please don't give in to the pressure of the acting industry. You're beautiful just the way you are," one fan wrote. "There is no need for all this. You can be the voice for those who want to embrace their natural selves." And to the shock of many, Schumer replied! "Thank you, I will try!" the Hollywood A-lister responded.
It can't be easy to be in front of the public eye and under the scrutiny of tabloids at every turn - but Amy managed to spin her misstep into some hilarious content for her fans. And we think she learned quite the valuable lesson along the way. Oh, and since the filler debacle? Well, Amy's gone back to her regularly scheduled programming filled with hilarious captions and hyping up her fellow comedians.
