Amy Schumer isn’t feeling very pretty today.

The comedian shared on social media Friday that she has been hospitalized all week with a “horrible kidney infection.” Her post included some “sexy as hell” photos from her sick bed, which, of course, weren’t sexy at all. She had IVs, comfy clothes, the unamused expression of someone who just wants to get better but hasn’t yet.


Schumer used the post to also announce that she’ll be missing the U.K. premiere of her much discussed film I Feel Pretty on May 4. “I need to put my health first,” she noted.

The good news is she’s surrounded by loved ones, including her new husband, Chris Fischer.

This is the first time she has let on that she is so sick. Her typical social media flow continued this week: She promoted her film on her pages, posted a #TBT photo of her toothless grin as a kid, and even cheerily urged her followers to read Ronan Farrow’s new book.

Early Friday, a new clip promoting her SuperSoul Conversations interview with Oprah Winfrey — in which Schumer talked about being a victim of sexual assault and having an abusive ex-boyfriend — circulated on the web.

This isn’t the first time Schumer’s health put her out of commission for work. When she was shooting Snatched with Goldie Hawn in 2016, a bout with bronchitis forced her to go to the hospital. Production of the comedy was shut down for a week so that she could recuperate from her illness and exhaustion.
