Amy Schumer responds to concern explaining her 'puffier' and swollen face

The actress has addressed comments about her recent appearance

Amy Schumer has addressed recent comments made about her appearance.

The Trainwreck star recently made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, with people expressing concern over her 'puffier' face.

Schumer was on the show to promote the second season of her hulu drama series, Life & Beth.

The 42-year-old also had her fun on the talk show, performing a short stand-up set with back-up dancers saying she 'can't compete' with the likes of Beyonce and Taylor Swift when it comes to performing because of their back-up dancers.

However, it was the aftermath of the show that took the attention away from the skit, as people were very curious and concerned about her 'swollen' face.

Schumer has since penned a response to these 'concerns' on her Instagram account.

She stated in a post on 15 February: "Thank you so much for everyone's input about my face!"

She went on: "I've enjoyed feedback and deliberation about my appearance as all women do for almost 20 years. And you're right it is puffier than normal right now."

The actress explained that the changes were due to her diagnosis with endometriosis, a long-term condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb grows in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Schumer continued: "There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now but I'm okay.

"I also believe a woman doesn't need any excuse for her physical appearance and owes no explanation. But I wanted to take the opportunity to advocate for self love and acceptance of the skin you're in."

Schumer, who is known for being an advocate for positive body image among women, gave birth to her son Gene with husband Chris Fisher in 2019.

Continuing, she explained: "Like every other women/person, some days I feel confident and good as hell and others I want to put a bag over my head.

"But I feel strong and beautiful and so proud of this TV show I created. Wrote. Starred in and directed. Maybe just maybe we can focus on that for a little."

A touching message from the actress.

Fans in the comments showed their unwavering support for the actress.

One user commented: "You are beautiful inside and out and so damn funny!!!!!!" while another said: "Yeeees! Finally season 2!!!! Can’t wait! PS: I love your face"

And a third put: "Keep crushing it, shoom."

Life & Beth is available to stream on hulu now.
