It was thanks to her stylist on Trainwreck, Leesa Evans, who helped her "dress and feel good," Schumer told Today in an interview aired Friday (Oct. 16). What's more, Evans helped Schumer's litter sister as well, mentioning which brought the comedy star to tears. 

"It's an emotional thing," she said. "It's been a struggle for me my whole life, and especially just being in the entertainment industry. Standing on a stage in front of people, I can't perform my best or be confident if I'm not sure -- if I'm pulling at something [I'm wearing]. And sometimes I would just want to throw in the towel and be like, 'I'm not gonna go do standup tonight.'"
