Amy Schumer was named one of Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating People of 2015, and opened up to the host about where she sees herself in ten years.
“I really don’t know,” the 34-year-old actress and comedian answered. “I want to be expressing myself creatively somehow, as a director or producer.”
When Walters pointed out that she didn’t mention marriage or kids as a goal, Schumer quipped, “Yeah, well that’s what came out.”
“I would love those things, but I don’t really see it for myself,” she continued. “I hope that happens, but I don’t know how realistic it is.”
Schumer also opened up in the interview about the July shooting at a screening of her film Trainwreck in Lafayette, Louisiana, where a gunman killed two moviegoers and injured nine before committing suicide.
“I’ve gotten death threats for almost ten years, just from doing stand up,” the comedian admitted. “Did this animal seek out my movie? From the way he felt about women, it sounds like he did.”
Still, Schumer said she isn’t frightened for her life, despite the threats and her decision to stand up with her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, after the shooting and call for stricter gun control.
“If I can help at all, I’m going to try,” she told Walters. “Even if that means I’ll get hurt.”
