Comedian Amy Schumer Reveals the Big Secret She Has Been Struggling With, Read On

Comedienne Amy Schumer is a favourite amongst audiences. The actor-comedian made a mark for herself in the 2015 film ‘Trainwreck’, which she wrote and starred in. She even received nominations for the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for her debut film and, it has been a ride going uphill ever since. However, recently, the actor just disclosed the “big secret” that she has been struggling with for a long time.

According to, Amy Schumer has been struggling with a hair-pulling disorder called trichotillomania. The actor divulged that she will no longer hide her personal struggle because she’s tired of carrying “so much shame” for years. Amy Schumer, who shared her experience in her semi-autobiographical new show ‘Life & Beth’, told The Hollywood Reporter that she has had the disorder since she was in grade school.

Once she picked out so much of her hair that she had to wear an ill-fitting wig to school. “And everybody knew,” Amu Schumer recalled. “I think everybody has a big secret, and that’s mine,” the 40-year-old actress revealed, “And I’m proud that my big secret only hurts me, but it’s been what I’ve carried so much shame about for so long.”

Amy Schumer disclosed that it started when her family was going through a tough time. It was when her father declared bankruptcy and had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. At that time, her mother left him for her best friend’s dad.

“And it’s not that I used to have this problem, and now I don’t… It’s still something that I struggle with,” she said, before admitting that she fears her toddler son Gene will have it as well. “Every time he touches his head I’m having a heart attack,” she said. “I really don’t want to have a big secret anymore,” she further emphasised, “And I thought putting it in there would be good for me to alleviate some of my shame and maybe, hopefully, help others alleviate some of theirs, too.”
