Are you loving former iCarly and Sam & Cat star Jennette McCurdy’s more serious turn on Between so far? We know we are. But who is McCurdy digging right now herself? We got answers in this week’s Woman Crushin’ It Wednesday!
We got a chance to speak with McCurdy on a recent Wednesday, so naturally we had to ask her for her #WCIW picks. Although Between can get real serious (she plays a pregnant teen in a town where all the adults—or at least people under 21—have been randomly wiped out!), she went more hilarious with her choices, shouting out to two of our faves: Amy Schumer and Tina Fey.
Not that these two need an intro, but Schumer is the powerhouse comedian behind Inside Amy Schumer and set to star in this summer’s buzzy Judd Apatow joint Trainwreck. And well, Tina Fey is responsible for some of the best things ever: Liz Lemon, Kimmy Schmidt, Baby Mama and her friendship with Amy Poehler.
Find out why Jennette loves and admires them both below!
WHY JENNETTE MCCURDY THINKS AMY SCHUMER AND TINA FEY ARE CRUSHIN’ IT:
I really like Amy Schumer. As uncomfortable as she can make people feel, she’s saying so much about women and debunking the pretenses that I think are kind of set up for us, and the roles we’re set up to play. She’s just saying, nope, a woman can be whatever she wants to be and do it well. And she’s hilarious and she has really good boobs. [Laughs]
I was watching Inside Amy Schumer and then I said, “Wow, she’s got amazing tits” and then I just starting looking up “Amy Schumer boobs” on Google.
And I really look up to Tina Fey because she’s such a quiet success, meaning she’s made such a splash in the industry, but she’s not loud about it. Like there’s nothing about Tina Fey that is … overtly indulgent. She just seems to do it because she loves doing it. I feel like she’d be writing the same amount if she was not heard by a single person as she does when she’s heard by millions on 30 Rock or Kimmy Schmidt or whatever. For that reason, I really like her.
Catch Between Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on City in Canada (it also streams on Shomi). Stateside filles can also check it out weekly on Netflix.
