Schumer, known for her candidness, addressed critics on Instagram, acknowledging her “puffier” face and connecting it to her battle with endometriosis. The comedian highlighted the societal pressure around body image and encouraged women to prioritize their health.

Cushing syndrome, characterized by prolonged exposure to excess cortisol, had caused visible changes in Schumer’s appearance, as outlined by Mayo Clinic. She emphasized feeling “reborn” after sharing her health news amidst the public scrutiny.

In her Instagram post, Schumer not only responded to face shape comments but also raised awareness about endometriosis, a condition she has previously discussed. The post included promotional art for “Life & Beth,” where she co-stars with Michael Cera.

The signs of Cushing syndrome, according to Mayo Clinic, encompass weight gain in the face, a fatty hump between shoulders, a rounded face, stretch marks, acne, slow wound healing, and thin, easily bruised skin. Cortisol, the hormone affected by Cushing syndrome, plays a vital role in the body’s response to stress and various physiological functions.
