The image was taken by acclaimed portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz, who is also the 2016 calendar’s curator.
Thanking Leibovitz, Schumer wrote, “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman.”
The New York Daily News reports Leibovitz said in a statement of Schumer, “It’s as if she didn’t get the memo saying that she could keep her clothes on.”
The famed photographer also told Marie Claire magazine Schumer “got the whole concept completely.”
“She’s so bright,” Leibovitz said. “She was willing to play that role. I was worried for her, I said ‘Are you self-conscious?’”
Schumer reportedly said, “Are you kidding? I love my body.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, the chic annual catalogue generally features semi-nude supermodels. The 2016 edition instead spotlights more creative and modest personalities, including writers, entertainers, philanthropists, athletes, and artists.
