Amy Schumer shared her insights on Margot Robbie’s new film ‘Barbie.’ On Monday, the comedian revealed that she has been part of the double feature dubbed “Barbenheimer.” It means she had seen both Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s historical drama, Oppenheimer, which opened on the same day 21st of July. Moreover, she shared her reaction to her ‘Barbie’ movie on her Instagram. Let’s find out the reaction of the star who was originally set to play Barbie in the movie.
Amy Schumer said she both enjoyed Barbie and Oppenheimer
Schumer shared a picture on her Instagram in a straw hat looking out of a pair of pink sunglasses. She captioned the post writing, “Really enjoyed Barbie and Oppenheimer but I think I should have played Emily Blunt’s role. Do better Hollywood. ”
In 2016, it was first announced that the comedian is considering the role of the iconic doll. However, before starting the filming she unfortunately backed off from the film.
Moreover, she also shared a statement regarding dropping out of the project.
Schumer said, “Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.”
Later on, Margot Robbie is cast as the main character of the movie.
Previously in June, during her appearance at the Watch What Happens to Live With Andy Cohe, she was asked if would be seeing the movie. Moreover, she was also asked about the reason for dropping out of the film.
Trainwreck responded, “I can’t wait to see the movie, I think it looks awesome. I think we said it was scheduling conflicts, that’s what we said. But it really was just creative differences. But yeah, there’s like a new team behind it and it looks very feminist and cool, so I will be seeing this movie.”
