Amy Schumer turned 40 this year and decided to freshen up her look with face fillers. But according to the star, she did not get to look better or younger.
It made her look like a movie villain.

So the actress decided to get rid of these fillers and become genuine with her fans and followers on social media.
On Sunday, the standup cartoon went to Instagram to share a picture from that follow-up procedure.
“I was trying to get fillers. It turned out I was already full,” she wrote next to the picture, which showed her with what appears to be an anesthetic cream on her cheeks. Thank God you can dissolve them. I looked like Maleficent. “
Considering that “Maleficient” star Angelina Jolie required dentures and hours in a makeup chair to bring the character’s larger-than-life and razor-sharp cheekbones to the big screen, that really says something.
Schumer’s message ended with a thank you to doctor Jodi LoGerfo, who on his own Instagram revealed that the filler was a “very simple and quick treatment” obtained using “an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid.”
But in the comments that followed Schumer’s post, most stressed that the entertainer did not need fillers in the first place.
“You are so Beautiful!” wrote friend and actress colleague Isla Fisher. “No fillers are needed.”
While nearly 2,000 others liked that comment, and many more reiterated similar feelings, others asked why Schumer turned to fillers at all.
And the mother of two, who underwent a hysterectomy and appendectomy in September due to endometriosis, shared the simple answer.
“Something about this year,” she wrote. “Being 40, all my surgeries. I want the best I can with myself. It’s a lifelong thing. I got lipo and had a great experience doing it.”
And she acknowledged that there was a time when she would not have had such a relaxed attitude towards cosmetic procedures.
“I used to be really judgmental of people who got the job done,” she continued.
“Now I think, do everything you can to love yourself exactly as you are. But once you turn 40 and have a caesarean section, do what the hell will make you feel best! ”
The fillers, however, did not make her feel best, and in response to another supportive comment, Schumer revealed that she felt some pressure to do so – though she did not say whether the pressure came from the entertainment industry, a doctor or her peers.
She just remarked that it was “crazy how fast I was spoken into it!”
Still, her followers cheered on her because she eventually talked herself out of it and got the fillers dissolved.
