Whether she's ranting about dating or casually making fun of her body (she’s compared herself to a lava lamp), we’re used to seeing funny girl Amy Schumer killing it onstage. But in an interview on Today, the 34-year-old gets emotional and serious about her body image issues.

Schumer opens up about her struggle with fashion of all things — and how finding the right clothes to make her feel confident on stage was never easy.

"It's been a struggle for me my whole life, and especially just being in the entertainment industry. Standing on a stage in front of people, I can't perform my best or be confident if I'm not sure — if I'm pulling at something [I'm wearing].”

Schumer credits her stylist Leesa Evans for helping her regain her confidence through fashion. She says Evans has given her the gift of showing her how to dress and feel good and she wants other women to feel the same. Schumer even gets emotional about a time when Evans helped dress her sister for a red carpet event they both attended and how happy she was that her sister felt empowered through her style.

She recently teamed up with Goodwill to co-host a style empowerment workshop to educate and transform women through fashion. "It was such a gift to be given to learn how to dress, to feel good about myself, and that’s the gift that we want to give everyone.” she says.  For more on her workshop watch the complete interview at Today.
