Amy Schumer has not been one to shy away from speaking about her body. When the actress and comedian faced body shamers on Instagram in 2016, she spoke of the issue on Ellen, “I look in the mirror, and I know who I am… and I feel beautiful, and I feel strong and sexy.” Schumer does not have time to pay attention to the naysayers.

The comedian debuted the trailer for her latest venture, I Feel Pretty, yesterday on Ellen. She says the basis of the movie is something that is relatable: body image. Her character, Renee, struggles with self-confidence, comparing herself to women like Emily Ratajkowski, who also appears in the movie. After a run-in with a spin class that throws her off of a stationary bike, she suffers a head injury that alters her perception, and she begins to see herself as the “undeniably pretty” woman she’s always wanted to be.

Her character’s new enlightened confidence due to her shift in reality begins to take her to new heights, where she starts re-shaping her life: new boyfriend, new job in the fashion industry. As she’s at a job interview for a fashion brand, with the likes of Naomi Campbell no less, she states boldly, “modeling is an option for me, but it’s not who I am.”

The film is dipped with other starlets as well, including Michelle Williams, Busy Phillipps, and SNL’s Aidy Bryant. The rom-com duo behind the classics He’s Just Not That Into You and Never Been Kissed, Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein wrote and directed the film, which is set to hit theaters in July 29th.
