Joanna posted yesterday about Anne Hathaway’s sense of humour and how she handled the joke about her in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck – click here for a refresher. Annie’s been taking hits for years now. She’s used to having her own hate-meme. And, as Joanna noted, it’s smart for her to not get sulky about it, to make light of her reputation instead of fighting it.
Blake Lively, however, doesn’t have that kind of experience yet.
You’ll recall, Amy mocked Blake – and Gwyneth Paltrow – in a talk show sketch this season on Inside Amy Schumer. Click here for a refresher. Amy was on Watch What Happens Live this week and Andy Cohen asked her if she’d heard from Blake since the sketch aired.
"You’re not going to believe this, but we’re not close friends," the Trainwreck actress, 34, joked to host Andy Cohen. "I have not heard anything. I think that she, like, sleeps in a beautiful tower covered in ivy," she quipped, "nursing her baby and has definitely never heard about our stupid scene."
Does this count as a prompt? Like if and when Blake eventually befriends Amy by posting a cute response video on Instagram with her legs all slicked up, wrapped in an artisanal throw (does that exist?), to show how self-deprecating and fun she can be, is it more or less effective since Amy’s pretty much prompted her?
