She has a phobia of aunts
No really, we are not making this up one bit. In an interview a couple of years ago, Amy confirmed this as she said, “On both my father’s side and mother’s side, my aunts are really bad people,” she said. “They all have personality disorders and I don’t trust them. I have a serious phobia of aunts. I’ve never met an aunt of anyone’s that I’ve trusted. My brother and sister both know that if they have kids, I will cut them out of my life, because technically I will be an aunt,” she added. It's strange, yet funny, no?

Amy got her first movie because of a traffic jam
Traffic in Los Angeles is bad. However, it did well to Amy as Judd Apatow, who directed Trainwreck (Schumer's debut film), heard one of Amy's interviews on the radio while he was stuck in a jam. "I thought, ’Amy is really warm and funny and brutally honest … and I thought, ’Oh, I’d like to see her in a movie,'” he told Matt Lauer during their conversation. Wow!
Amy is related to a Senator
Amy is related to Chuck Schumer, the Democratic senator from New York. What's interesting is that for a long time, Chuck didn't know who she was. That has changed now of course, as he knows that she is the daughter of one of his cousins. We wish Amy a very happy birthday. Hope she is keeping it low-key given the current global pandemic.
