Amy Schumer Hospitalized; Misses Opening Of New Movie

Comedian Amy Schumer and star of the new movie ‘I Feel Pretty’, had to miss the opening of said film after being hospitalized for a kidney infection.

She was supposed to fly to London for the opening of the movie, but after battling what she called a “horrible” kidney infection for 5 days, her doctors refused to let her travel.  Schumer announced the unfortunate circumstances in an Instagram post that shows her lying in a hospital bed.  In her post, she thanks her doctors and nurses, husband Chris, and sister for their support, while she’s been on the mend.

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week. I was hospitalized for 5 days with a horrible kidney infection. I want to give a big thank you to the doctors, the bad ass nurses also my husband who’s name is, i want to say, Chris? and my sisters Kimby and mol who have been by my side the whole time. I wanted to share this with you because this is sexy as hell but mostly because I was meant to go to London for the opening of I Feel Pretty and my doctors have told me that’s a no go. I’m really disappointed selfishly to miss this trip because I love London and Europe in general and all the great people (food) there. But I need to put my health first. I am so grateful for all the support the movie is getting. I hope people check it out in England and everywhere else in the world. It’s sweet and fun and you will walk out feeling better. Which is something I hope to feel soon too.
