Amy Schumer on fame: I don't think it will last

AMY Schumer doesn't think her fame will "last another six months".

The 'Trainwreck' star isn't sure her career will last much longer and has joked it is down to her "behavioural issues".

Speaking to journalists at Comedy Central's presentation in New York, she quipped: "Do you guys know that I'm really famous now? I think it's gonna last another six months. Obviously, I've got behavioural issues.

"I didn't know what being famous would be like. You can imagine, and then it actually really blows. You're like, 'Boo-hoo,' and yes, I'm very rich now. Very rich. But now, I get to have things like: If I walk down the street in New York, people going, 'Oh my god, I never do this, but would you [expletive] my brother?'"

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old comedian previously admitted she doesn't find fame "fun".

She explained: "I'm, like, newly famous, and it turns out it's not fun. Did you guys know that? You're, like, you know that I'm just now learning that my dreams have been a sham, and that it's actually not great and it just only comes with pain.

"We all know it's going to last another three months because that's how it works. I'm already burning bridges like it's already f***ing over. I'm telling you, this is the last time I'll ever be onstage. The next time you see me, I'll be the girl in the elevator, like, do you want to go see the 'Sleep No Less?'"
