Amy Schumer has recently hit back at the double standards for women and men in Hollywood, claiming that females are not given roles because of their ability in the industry.

The 34-year-old stand-up comedian said that she is not an actress who gets roles because of her f***ability but she does observe double standards in the industry as Sally Field, who played Tom Hanks’ love interest in ‘Punchline,’ was given the role of his mother in ‘Forrest Gump’ six years later, reported the Irish Examiner.

Talking about her upcoming comedy ‘Trainwreck,’ the ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ star said that people are in a denial that women sleep around. There are so many funny and smart women in the public eye who don’t apologise for their behaviour, but there’s still a stigma.
