Amy Schumer Channels Her Inner Confidence in ‘I Feel Pretty’ Trailer

Amy Schumer’s New Comedy

Amy Schumer unveiled the trailer for her upcoming comedy I Feel Pretty on the “Ellen” show Thursday morning.

In the film, the comedian plays an average woman who deals with some low self-esteem and insecurity in her everyday life and wakes from a head injury believing she is suddenly the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet.

“I look exactly the same but in my mind I am Gisele; I am one of the Jenner-Kardashians,” she told DeGeneres about the twist.

Written and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, the film’s cast also includes Michelle Williams, Busy Philipps, supermodel Naomi Campbell, and SNL‘s Aidy Bryant. Watch the trailer, and Schumer’s guest appearance on “The Ellen Show,” below.

Amy Schumer’s New Comedy

Renee Bennett (Amy Schumer) knows what it feels like to be average looking in New York city – a city of the genetically and financially blessed. After falling off her bike and banging her head during a spin class, she stumbles in the locker room and it is there that she first sees what has happened – her legs are toned, her hair is silky, her chin is defined – she is GORGEOUS. Except that, to everyone else, she looks EXACTLY THE SAME.

Even though her appearance hasn’t changed AT ALL – Renee’s new belief in herself sees her climbing the ranks at the cosmetics company she works for, getting the respect of her impossibly beautiful boss AVERY LECLAIR (Michelle Williams), bagging a cute boyfriend in ETHAN and getting invited to rooftop parties.

With her new confidence comes overconfidence, and even the tendency to treat the ‘less genetically fortunate’ in the same dismissive way that people used to treat her. Eventually Renee believes the spell has been lifted – and finally realizes that when she thought she was ugly, she may have been the most beautiful, and when she believed she was beautiful, she had started to turn a bit ugly. She learns that true beauty is not skin deep.
