Amy Schumer sends personal trainer a cease and desist after being subjected to 'extreme and unduly punishing' workouts
Actress and comedian Amy Schumer has revealed she once gave her personal trainer a cease-and-desist after being subjected to what she jokingly called "extreme and unduly punishing" workouts.
In a recent episode of her podcast ‘3 Girls, 1 Keith’ Amy was joined by celebrity trainers Harley Pasternak and AJ who coached her after she was made to slim down for her role in the movie, Trainwreck. However, she wasn't shy about stating which trainer she preferred, and in the past she apparently played a prank on AJ where she pretended to take legal action.
Watch Amy Schumer talk about having to lose weight for movie roles in this interview:
Schumer stated: "AJ, our workouts were so hard that I threatened you near-constantly ... I did have my lawyer, Isaac Dunham, send her a cease and desist. This is the guy I bought bench ads for without his permission, so his face was on benches for several months."
Amy then proceeded to read out the joke letter that her lawyers had drafted for her, which read: "We are the attorneys for Amy Schumer, an internationally known actress, comedian and high-profile public figure."
It continued: "It has come to our attention that while Ms. Schumer has engaged you to perform simple physical training for her, you have instead forced Ms. Schumer to perform extreme and unduly punishing physical exercises well outside the bounds of normal physical training."
However, AJ was adamant that her workout routines were justified, asserting: "Amy told me after several of our sessions, 'You will be hearing from my lawyer.’ Like, without even saying bye. And then, when I finally heard from her lawyer, I opened the letter and I actually got goosebumps. I had a moment of: 'Was she serious? Is my career totally over?’"
However, this isn't the first time that Amy has taken issue with the matter of weight loss. Recently, Amy Schumer issued a response to Jessica Simpson's first post-pregnancy weight-loss pic.
