Amy Schumer and Anna Wintour switch jobs for 'Vogue' feature

By Sarah Walker

In a very fashionable Freaky Friday, Amy Schumer and Anna Wintour traded jobs for a day to see what it would be like to fill each other's shoes. The experiment was a companion to the Trainwreck star's first Vogue cover and feature interview - and the result is hilarious!

Within seconds of the video's start, it becomes clear that the two women lead drastically different lives. It all starts with the 35-year-old actress and the 66-year-old editor sitting in Anna's posh, well-decorated office. Wearing a T-shirt and sweatpants, Amy says, "I have to be honest with you, I'm not feeling the most comfortable I've ever felt." The September Issue star responds by saying, "You look very comfortable."

Amy Schumer stuns on her first Vogue cover.

After bantering about whose job is easiest, the two decide to swap places. Amy quickly discovers that it's not so easy to walk even a few steps in Anna's stilettos (cue the slapstick!) or decide what's sartorially smart for a season. She even stares aghast at the lunch she's given: a small piece of steak and a few spinach leaves.

Anna finds herself in a bar doing stand-up comedy. "Anyone here on a first date? Last date?" to which the audience loudly applauds. She ends her set with the tagline "Wintour is coming."

Amy finds that Anna's editor position comes with its challenges, edible and otherwise.

At the end of the clip the duo run into each other backstage. While Amy looks disheveled from her day as an editor-in-chief, the Vogue show-runner admits "I could get into this!"


Alongside the video short, the Inside Amy Schumer creator gave a candid interview to the publication about her life, her schedule and Hollywood. Her new memoir The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo comes out this summer, and she's in the middle of a six-week comedy tour.

Speaking about her drive to succeed, she says, "Sometimes I feel like they’re hustling, they want something, and they’re not going to stop until they get it, and they play the game. I am very into making up my own rules. Like, I don’t want to play the game and succeed at it. I want to redefine it. That’s the only way I can deal with it. Maybe that’s naive."

She also firmly believes her style of comedy resonates with folks because the "mean girl" era is ending. “I think people are gravitating toward a more honest, more normal human... I have this innate need to say things that I think are important for people to hear, and I can’t stand injustice... The feedback that reaches me is so equal in appreciation and outrage that it doesn’t feel overwhelming in either direction."
