Amy Schumer and new beau Chris Fischer made their relationship public via PDA-heavy Instagram shot taken at Ellen Degeneres’ 60th birthday party. “Happy Birthday @theellenshow thank you for having us!” Amy captioned the shot of herself lip-locked with the renowned Martha’s Vineyard chef and cookbook author.
Ellen actually turned 60 on January 26th, but celebrated the milestone birthday this weekend with a huge bash that included many celebrity attendees.
Fischer lives on and runs his family farm, Beetlebung Farm, in Martha’s Vineyard where he operates also operates the restaurant Beach Plum, a favorite of the Obamas. In 2013 Fischer was profiled by Esquire because of his presidential approval.
This is Schumer’s first public relationship since her May 2017 split with Ben Hanisch, who she was with for two years after meeting him on a dating app. In 2016 the comedian said she felt like Hanisch was “the first guy who’s really been my boyfriend. There are guys who, if they heard me say that, would want to punch me in the face, but yeah, it’s the truth.” One of those guys who might be incensed by that comment might be fellow comedian Anthony Jeselnik, who dated Schumer on-and-off for several years.
Amy’s new, exciting relationship status make take some of the sting out of the reception of her new movie’s trailer I Feel Pretty, which dropped Thursday.
“My character Renee, she kind of has low self-esteem and she really wants to be pretty and just feel all the parts of life that open up to you when you’re just gorgeous, and then I fall off my bike in SoulCycle and I start seeing myself as a supermodel,” Schumer explained on an appearance on Ellen’s talk show Thursday.
“I look exactly the same, but in my mind, I am Giselle (Bündchen), I am one of the Jenner-Kardashians — gorgeous, and things start happening.”
Much of the criticism surrounding the film stems around the the fact that Amy’s character appears to gain confidence from a self-deluded ideal rather than self-acceptance.
