Amy Schumer, GQ

Mark Seliger exclusively for GQ

Amy Schumer knows all too well that she will most likely put her foot in her mouth.

It's inevitable, after all, that the candid comedian will say something that rubs somebody the wrong way, and the Trainwreck star admits she's waiting on pins and needles for when that time will come.

In her latest interview with GQ's Chris Heath, Schumer jokes about having everyone on her side and how being a woman in the industry "f--king sucks."

"I truly feel I'm getting a lot of attention right now and it's just a ticking time bomb," she joked.

"Like, I wonder what the thing is going to be that will make people want to burn me at the stake. There's no way to control it. I think it will be really arbitrary and a misunderstanding. But yeah, I'm really enjoying the love right now."

Schumer added that she'll most likely begin speaking more openly on a number of other topics, including politics.

"I know inevitably I'll get more political, just as an adult with changing interests, which is good—no one wants to hear me talk about who I f--ked or whatever for another twenty years."

The actress also spoke about being seriously over all of the hullabaloo that comes with being a woman in the limelight.

"It's exhausting. I'm very annoyed by all the physical stuff—the heels, the makeup, outfits, versus my male counterparts who are rolling out of bed. Women are accomplishing more and more, and men are plateauing, so there are these insane expectations of how you'll be. You really are kind of encouraged to accomplish everything, and then you get to realize, 'But not too much—make everyone comfortable.'"
