In Trainwreck, Amy Schumer is looking for love in all the wrong places.

In real life, she's not even looking. As she's become more famous in the last year, "Now I have to wonder what people's intentions are," she tells Glamour. "And also, people think that I have more sex than I do. But you know what? I made a decision. I'm gonna do this anyway. I'm gonna keep speaking up and creating all this work. I could have roped it in and hopefully found a mate. But I made a decision. And it does feel like sometimes it's a sacrifice for my love life and social life."

Schumer jokingly adds, "Hero alert!"

Laughs aside, nearly everything Schumer says makes headlines. For example, during her recent Glamour U.K. Women of the Year Awards speech, she said, "I'm probably like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a dick whenever I want."

Schumer doesn't regret making such bold statements.

"If a guy was like, 'I can get p---y whenever I want,' that guy would be a d--khead. But to deny that there's a major difference is ridiculous. For women, we're taught to eat less until we disappear. And trained to believe that if you don't look like everyone else, then you're unlovable," she tells Glamour's August issue. "And men are not trained that way. Men can look like whatever and still date a supermodel."

"I'm proud of what I said," the 34-year-old comedienne continues. "I think it's good to see somebody saying, 'I have a belly, and I have cellulite, and I still deserve love—and to catch the old D. And to not apologize.'"

Because she's so outspoken with her comedy, people assume she's that way all the time. "I think most people think they already know me and that I'll be fine with them coming up and being very familiar with me. But really I'm an introvert and don't feel comfortable around big groups and strangers. It's overwhelming for somebody to come up and want to just be friends right away," the Inside Amy Schumer star says. "People think comics are always funny and on. And we're not."

In fact, Schumer says, "We're pretty quiet."

Glamour's August issue is available digitally now and on newsstands July 14.
