Amy Schumer Reacts to Anne Hathaway Snatching ‘Barbie’ Role

When Sony first announced they were making a live-action Barbie movie, there was a lot of skepticism. We love Barbie as much as the next former-child, but how in the world could a live-action version of the doll work?

Then they said Amy Schumer was going to star, and we got even more confused. Some people love Schumer, some hate her. Some just couldn’t picture her as Barbie. But now there’s a weirder casting choice going on.

Reportedly, Schumer has dropped out of the Barbie movie due to scheduling conflicts. And her replacement is none other than Anne Hathaway.
