Amy Schumer Is the Barbie We Need and Deserve

She's a Barbie girl... soon enough. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Schumer is set to play Barbie (yes, that Barbie) in an upcoming live action film.

You're probably thinking, "What the fuck, did we really need a Barbie movie? What's next, the Tamagotchi Movie? Beanie Babies: Revenge of the Beanies?" 

The answer is actually yes. We did need it. Because with Schumer attached to star and write the script and a contemporary and funny plot about beauty, feminism, and identity, it's obviously going to be pretty awesome. 

Don't worry, though—the internet body-shaming trolls are already coming after Amy, saying she's not thin enough to play Barbie. Classy AF, right? 

Well, quick reminder that a real life Barbie would have to walk on all fours based on those insane proportions. So, we're pretty sure Queen Amy will do just fucking fine, thanks. YAAAAAS!
