Back in April, Amy Schumer got some attention when she took a fake fall, right in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, on the red carpet at the TIME 100 Gala in New York. Schumer explained the moment on the Graham Norton Show, Vanity Fair reports. "You know when you're doing interviews, and the person sees somebody more important behind you?" Schumer explained. In this case, reporters were excited about Kim and Kanye—so "I just couldn't help it. I think falling is the funniest thing, so I just took a dive in front of them," she said, to great applause from the audience. "Thank you! I'm doing God's work." She adds that though Kanye appeared quite unamused in ensuing photos, he did smile at her later when she approached the couple, though in a very robot-like way. (Schumer recently defended her weight—in raunchy fashion.)
