"I’ve been up and down my whole life. I think I have a really good baseline now where I am proud of myself, but that takes a lot of work," Schumer told Fast Company about the motivation behind 'I Feel Pretty.' "That took therapy and letting go of the past and just realizing kind of who I am. And what makes somebody who they are," she said.
The film follows Schumer's character, Renee, as she struggles with body image and self-confidence. After suffering a head injury, Renee awakens with an entirely altered self-image. A multitude of online commentators thought this plotline to be "problematic" or "unfeminist," though Schumer believes it reflected the narrative of her own self-confidence journey. "Some people took issue with that. I think rewiring yourself to like yourself is a lot of work and anyone who feels like this is unrealistic hasn’t done that yet," Schumer said.
