Amy Schumer never holds back — even when getting candid about herself.
The comedian elicited laughs and gasps when accepting the Trailblazer Award at the Glamour UK 2015 Women of the Year ceremony this week.
After Ellie Goulding told the audience that she was “punching above her weight,” Schumer responded, “I love the way Ellie was like, thank you for loving real people and she’s like a f—ing supermodel.”
“I’m probably, like, 160 pounds right now and I can catch a d— whenever I want,” she added. “Like that’s the truth. It’s not a problem.”

The 34-year-old comedian also noted that “I’m not going to apologize for who I am.”
“I’m going to actually love the skin that I’m in. And I’m not going to be striving for some other version of myself,” she said, receiving applause from the crowd.
Kerry Washington, who also attended the event, praised the “Trainwreck” star’s speech on Twitter.
“AMY You just gave a speech that gave me life! I love you and your brain soooo much. #GlamourAwards,” she tweeted Schumer.
The Glamour event is just the latest instance of Schumer bringing down the house at an awards ceremony.
She made headlines earlier this week for her onstage smooch with Tina Fey during the 2015 Peabody Awards.
Fey summed up Schumer’s rise to superstardom in recent months when presenting her the award.
“Amy Schumer is killing it right now, as the agents like to say,” Fey said.
“Usually they are lying. But in this case it is true. Amy is killing it. She is the biggest deal in comedy right now.”
