Gross pandering to audiences is expected during celebrity interviews, but Amy Schumer made it REALLY gross.
We're all used to the celebrity interview format on late night talk shows, especially when the celebrity is a woman. The host compliments her dress, her body, her face. The host is a man, duh. Even Tina Fey doesn't escape this inevitable evening wear pageant competition. Her last interview on Letterman was essentially dedicated to this trope, though she made it funny:

This sketch takes what all that "YOU"RE HAWT" talk is about to its natural conclusion:

Schumer's character is complicit in the ways she's sexualizing herself for fans, including exhibiting increasingly gold legs and pretending to be a tiny sexy baby wrapped in the Bill Hader's huge masculine jacket. But would she even get invited to a talk show if she didn't submit to the host's sexual advances and complaints about his nagging wife, Darflin?
At least she humbles herself for us by admitting she loves the most obscure, niche and embarrassing movie you could ever be into: Star Wars.
