‘He’s not good': Amy Schumer reveals ‘unbelievable pain’ as she discusses her father Gordon’s 22-year battle with multiple sclerosis.

The 34-year-old and recent PEOPLE cover girl told Barbara Walters that her dad, Gordon Schumer, is “not good” during her interview for ABC’s Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015. “Some days he’s really good and he’s with it and we’re joking around,” Schumer told Walters, 86. “And some days I go to visit my dad and it’s so painful.

While speaking to the actor, who earned critical acclaim for his leading stage role in The Elephant Man following an Oscar-nominated performance in American Sniper, Walters comes on to the 40-year-old, at least for the benefit of the cameras. “I could just sit and stare at you but that would take too much time,” Walters gushes to Cooper, before raising the stakes. “I find you very screwable. . .I think you’re handsome,” she says, offering him one last flattering, discomfort-inducing adjective, “I think you’re sexy.” “Thank you,” Cooper replies. “I think that I’ve grown to stop thinking about it. . . . The actress’s onscreen character, also named Amy, has a father that lives in a similar facility and also suffers from MS. “In terms of my dad being sick, it was just confusing to me, especially the way MS works,” Schumer explained. “He was in physical pain.

In addition to the Oscar nominee’s slew of fans, Cooper made out with comedian Betty White at this year’s SNL 40 and has been a punch line in Amy Schumer’s stand-up routine, in which the Trainwreck star admits to thinking she’s engaged to the hottie after a few brief encounters. “Some times I feel better than others,” he told Walters. “I think it has a lot to do with feeling comfortable with yourself. That’s when I kind of took the lead and took care of everybody in my family,” she told Walters. “I would keep them — I would keep everybody laughing. The special, which airs Thursday on ABC, also promises another vaguely cringe-worthy exchange, this time between Walters and other fascinating person Amy Schumer.

The 49-year-old shared the self-portrait on Instagram with the caption: ‘Wet hair, no make up, no filter, no retouch, but very good light. #hair #nomakeup #nofilter #noretouch #light’. Earlier this year the actress told Allure: ‘When I was young, they tried to sell me on the idea: “If you do [Botox] now, then you won’t get the wrinkles.” And thank God I didn’t do that.’ ‘[Valentina] is so good with makeup,’ the proud mother gushed. ‘So, so good that I have an assistant that sometimes asks her to do her makeup before she goes out.’ The Mexican-American starlet continued, ‘She’s done my makeup and she’s really, really good!

In her Golden Globe–nominated comedy Trainwreck, her onscreen dad (Colin Quinn) has MS. “There is no denying that there is a lot of me in this movie. Chuck Schumer (her cousin). “Knowing it was my movie, I did feel some distant sense of responsibility,” she shared. “Did this animal seek out my movie?

It’s really personal,” Schumer said at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas, in March. “It’s about stuff I was struggling with and am constantly battling.”
