Amy Schumer refuses to starve herself like other actresses.

The 'Trainwreck' star says it is quite common place in the industry for women to have ''hungry days'' but Amy refuses to get involved in that trend.

She said: ''They won't be able to enjoy it; they have to be hungry. That's totally typical for a lot of actresses. But I'm like, 'I'm not doing that,' because those people aren't happy. But it's funny, I go to awards shows and I try to look my best and I look like how the costume designers look and I feel proud about that.''

And the 36-year-old actress and comedienne - who recently tied the knot with chef Chris Fischer - doesn't want to send a negative message to her fans.

Speaking on Katie Couric's podcast, she added: ''[It would be] against the point. I feel beautiful and I feel strong and sexy, but I'm not going to be the most beautiful girl, so I'm not going to try to market myself or get myself there. And I don't think that sends a good message. How about not striving for some other version of yourself? Why not love what you've got going on right now rather than this eternal dissatisfaction?''

Meanwhile, Amy previously credited her parents for helping her stay confident.

She said: ''I think it's the way your mum looks at you. That gaze, where you see yourself reflected in her eyes, and there's just so much love. My mum just made me feel so funny and smart and special and beautiful, and it wasn't until years later that I found out she was lying. I'm joking, but it's kind of true. Her and my father were just like, 'you are amazing', and I was like, 'I am amazing', and by the time I realised that they were exaggerating, it was too late. My nervous system was already set up.''
