Amy Schumer hates being called a celebrity

Amy Schumer claims being a celebrity is "quite embarrassing".

The 34-year-old actress' new film 'Trainwreck' is impressing critics and doing well at the box office, but she insists she isn't comfortable with people knowing who she is.

She said: "It's not fun! I like writing and performing, but talking about myself is really not my thing. To be called a celebrity is quite embarrassing for me, to be honest."

But Amy wasn't scared to put herself out there emotionally in the film, which she also co-wrote.

She told US OK! magazine: "I never hesitated to do this, I like being out there. Anybody who judges me, I don't want to be close to."

However, the actress, whose father has multiple sclerosis, doesn't expect her success to last.

She explained: "I am warm and loving, but there is a side of me that always expects things to go wrong. Living with a parent who is ill changes your life in many ways. You have to learn to live in the moment. That's key in my life."

The comedian is set to open for Madonna at her New York concerts in September and says she won't hold anything back.

She said: "I will probably bomb, but I'm so excited. And I can tell you right now, it won't be PG-13."
