Amy Schumer has revealed how she felt after watching the blockbuster-hit Barbie movie years after she turned down the role.
In 2016, the comedian was about to play Barbie in the live-action film but decided to drop out, citing scheduling conflicts, creative differences and ‘no feminist edge.’
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Schumer said: “They definitely didn’t want to do it the way I wanted to do it, the only way I was interested in doing it.”
Schumer revealed that her version of Barbie was an ambitious inventor who created a Jell-O high hell.
“The idea that that’s just what every woman must want, right there,” she said of the footwear. “I should have hone, ‘You’ve got the wrong gal.’”
In an episode of Watch What Happens Live last month, Schumer said: “I can’t wait to see the (Margot Robbie) movie. It looks awesome. I think we said it was scheduling conflicts, that’s what we said. But yeah, it really was just creative differences.
“But you know, there’s a new team behind it, and it looks like it’s very feminist and cool so I will be seeing the movie.”
On Monday, the 42-year-old revealed that she saw both Oppenheimer and Margot Robbie’s Barbie.
“Really enjoyed Barbie and Oppenheimer but I think I should have played Emily Blunts role,” she joked, adding: “Do better Hollywood.”
The comedian also shared a photo of her wearing a floral print shirt she matched with pink sunglasses and a straw hat.
Her post has received more than 70,000 likes, with one fan commenting: “We still deserve Amy as Barbie hate it didn’t work out few years back.”
Another said: “I would of paid to see you starring in Barbie!”
