When Amy Schumer referenced Jessica Simpson’s recent weight loss on Monday, the two stars had a hilarious and supportive interaction.
Schumer, who gave birth to her first child in May, shared a photo of herself at the beach on Instagram.
“Ok Simpson!” she captioned the image. “Well ive lost 10 pounds and 100 dollars to my sister playing poker.” Schumer also added the hashtag, “no rush.”
Simpson recently made headlines when she revealed she’s lost 100 pounds since giving birth in March. The mom of three said she’s “so proud to feel like myself again” — but was also quick to joke about “size” and praise Schumer.
“You’re hot,” Simpson commented on the comedian’s post. “Size only matters when it comes to men.”
Twenty hours later, Simpson’s comment had already racked up over 4,000 likes. @amyschumer/Instagram
The 39-year-old “Dukes of Hazzard” star lost her post-pregnancy weight healthily and gradually, according to her trainer Harley Pasternak.
Speaking to E! News, Pasternak said that he gave Simpson time to recover after labor, then started her off with a goal of 6,000 steps a day. The step count was gradually increased to 14,000.

Once she had her walking in check, Simpson started doing full-body workouts every other day.
“We slowly ramped those up; we started really easy and slowly increased them,” Pasternak, who’s worked with Simpson for 12 years, told E! News.
