In a recent interview with Charlie Rose, Judd Apatow discusses his new book, Sick in the Head: Conversations about Life and Comedy, a collection of intimate, hilarious conversations with the biggest names in comedy from the past thirty years — including Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Roseanne Barr, Harold Ramis, Louis C.K., Chris Rock, and Lena Dunham. Apatow also talks about his newest directorial project, Trainwreck, starring Amy Schumer. “Unlike a lot of people, she just worked her butt off,” he tells Rose. “Most people you say, ‘Hey, you want to write a movie,’ and they just literally don’t do it. If I gave [Amy] notes that a normal writer would take three months to execute, she would do it in, like, six days!” You can watch the entire conversation above, and check out some brand new stills from Trainwreck below.
