Amy Schumer Shared Her “Barbie” Reaction Six Years after Dropping Out of the Film

Greta Gerwig’s blockbuster film, Barbie, has taken the world by storm, but few may recall that six years ago, Amy Schumer was initially set to star as Barbie and co-write the script.
However, in 2017, she parted ways with the project, citing “scheduling conflicts.”

Last year, Schumer revealed the true reason behind her departure, stating that the studio did not share her vision for the film. She wanted her Barbie character to be an inventor, while the studio proposed a storyline involving a high-heel made of Jell-O. This divergence in creative direction led to her decision to leave the project.

Recently, the film Barbie hit theaters, prompting curiosity about Amy Schumer’s potential reaction to Greta Gerwig’s take on the iconic doll. Amy couldn’t resist sharing her thoughts on Instagram, posting a photo of herself sporting a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. With a touch of humor, she quipped, “Really enjoyed Barbie and Oppenheimer, but I think I should have played Emily Blunt’s role. Do better Hollywood.”

The mention of Emily Blunt refers to her role as Kitty, the wife of J. Robert Oppenheimer, in Christopher Nolan’s successful film, Oppenheimer.

As Amy Schumer playfully muses over her imagined role in Barbie, it highlights the enduring interest in the film and its impact on the audience.

While her journey with the project didn’t materialize, Amy’s candid and witty commentary adds a touch of charm to the ongoing fascination with Barbie and the Hollywood film industry.
