Amy Schumer feared her relationship was over after she got severe food poisoning on an anniversary vacation.
The ‘Trainwreck’ star was struck down with the illness whilst she was celebrating 12 months with boyfriend Ben Hanisch in Paris in September and admits at the time, she feared it would be the end of their romance.
Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said: “Neither of us had been to France because we’re both trash. We had one of those hotel rooms where the bathroom … When you’re in it, and someone coughs, you hear it loudly in the whole room. You could hear everything, and we both got violent food poisoning.
“And so it hits him first, and he’s just in there like [vomiting], and then the way it manifested itself in me is basically I was in there just like – just machine gun. I knew it was over. I was in there yelling, ‘It was so great dating you! I wish you the best luck. You’re going to meet the greatest girl.’ Who can make it through that?”
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old comedienne previously confessed being in love is the “scariest thing in the world”.
She shared: “Being in love is the scariest thing in the world. You want to f***ing cry and scream. I can’t handle it. Every time we say goodbye, I think, ‘This will have been a nice last week together.’
“Or I tell myself nothing is real and he’s going to leave me and tell me he never loved me. I feel so bad for him. How exhausting it must be dating me … I feel like Ben is the first guy who’s really been my boyfriend. There are guys who, if they heard me say that, would want to punch me in the face, but yeah, it’s the truth.”
And the blonde beauty recently insisted her boyfriend is “totally different” from the “narcissistic” men she has dated in the past.
She said: “I usually would go for narcissists who, you know, could never be happy. [Ben’s] just very supportive and loving and I think we’re very proud of each other. He is so far removed from this business that it’s really nice.”
