Amy Schumer says that even though she weighs 160lbs, she has no problem attracting the opposite sex.

The 34-year-old comedienne received the Trailblazer of the Year trophy at the 2015 Glamour UK Women of the Year Awards, which were held in London Tuesday night.

When Ellie Goulding took the stage earlier in the ceremony the songstress noted she was proud of “punching above her weight”, and the musician’s comments prompted Amy to reveal the thoughts she has about her own body while scooping up her Trailblazer honour.

"I love the way Ellie was like, thank you for loving real people and she's like a f**king supermodel. I'm probably, like, 160lbs right now and I can catch a d**k whenever I want. Like, that's the truth. It's not a problem,” Amy told the crowd, with the audience roaring with laughter. "I'm not going to apologise for who I am, and 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."

On the red carpet at the event, Amy divulged some interesting facts about her beauty routine to Glamour Magazine UK.

The Trainwreck actress described what she does to maintain hair-free legs.

“My mom told me I didn't need to shave above my legs above the knee. I basically [look] like Christopher Robin down there,” she joked, referring to the Winnie-the-Pooh character.

Amy also spoke of how she views lingerie.

The star had an interesting take on the panties she wore to this week’s ceremony.

“Tonight, I had one goal. To take my underwear off at the end of the night and not make it look like I blew my nose on it,” Amy noted.
