Watch: Why Emily Ratajkowski Is Calling Out Judd Apatow's "This is 40"

This is…awkward.
Emily Ratajkowski recently chatted with comedian Amy Schumer at the Tribeca Film Festival and it sounds like things may have gotten a little tricky. Since the Trainwreck star recently turned 40 on June 1, Judd Apatow's movie, This Is 40, naturally came up in the midst of conversation. Although Emily recommended the comedy as one to watch, she also reportedly didn't hesitate to express her issue with the 2012 movie.
"So that movie is hilarious and very spot-on," Emily told Amy, according to Page Six. "I recommend everybody who has a husband or wife and kids to watch it [but] Megan Fox is treated in it so badly."
Amy—who Judd directed and tapped to star in her first feature film, 2015's Trainwreck, and who also serves as her mentor—was seemingly put in an uncomfortable position and asked the model, "Oooh, that movie is not aging well?" to which Emily replied, "That movie is not aging well."

In the movie, Megan plays the character of Desi, who is accused of stealing money before it's revealed that she also works as an escort.

The comedy was brought up again a few moments later when Emily asked the star who made the movie and it sounds like Amy was able to play it off with a Schumer-style joke.

"It's Judd Apatow," Amy explained with a laugh. "I don't care, I'm ready to burn that bridge to the ground tonight."
That bridge was first built when the well-known director heard Amy as a guest on Howard Stern's radio show in 2011. He later explained in an 2015 interview with Variety that once he heard the comedian tell a story about her relationship with her father, he realized he wanted to see her star in something of her own.

"I was not that familiar with Amy Schumer's standup," he told the publication. "She was talking to Howard Stern, and she was so engaging. She was talking about her dad having MS and what her relationship is like with him. It was very dark and sad, but also very sweet and hilarious and she clearly adores him. I thought, ‘This is a very unique personality and I'd like to see these stories in movies.'"
