The Hilarious Truth About Amy Schumer's Marriage
| LAST UPDATE 11/21/2021
Amy Schumer praised her husband, Chris Fischer, during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight. The comedian hilariously explained why she would never leave her husband: because he is such a fantastic chef. Who can blame her?
The Trainwreck star teased, "That is right. I can't lie. He knows what's going on. We have a prenup, but we don't need it. He's a chef; he's a chef!" Her husband has worked with food and other top chefs for years. Having grown up on a farm at Marthas Vineyard, Fischer enjoys preparing his meals with fresh ingredients. He explains in his cookbook, The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook, "I realized then what I had always instinctively known, that the food we grow, the fish we catch, the animals we hunt, and those we raise on grasses and flowers salted by the sea breeze are special because of this place."
Fischer has even won a James Beard Award for his cookbook, which he co-wrote with Catherine Young. So with a chef for a husband, it's obvious why Schumer is so excited to spend Thanksgiving with her family, including her 2-year-old son, Gene. "My mom and dad come over, and we keep it pretty chill," she said about the holiday season.
But gushing over her great husband wasn't all the I Feel Pretty star chatted about. Schumer promoted her upcoming movie, The Humans, based on Stephen Karam's Tony Award-winning Broadway play. The trailer for the film starts out showing a family who coincidentally is also sitting around their Thanksgiving table. But it's a bit different from Schumer's typical comedies; in this family drama, she displays her varied acting skills. The film follows a typical American family dealing with complex matters such as dark secrets, depression, and Alzheimer's disease.
The actress explained how close the cast of the movie got while filming. "It was real. I mean, really, we all fell in love with each other, and we had such a good time," she shared about her fellow co-stars, Beanie Feldstein, June Squibb, Steven Yeun, Richard Jenkins, and more. "It was the dream. I feel like everybody says that that happens on every project, but this really happened," she further added.
The Humans comes out on November 24, the day before Schumer gets to enjoy her husband's delicious Thanksgiving feast.
