Amy Schumer thought of a pretty great Christmas gift for her father. The actress decided to buy back the family farm that they lost in her childhood.
She posted a video to her Instagram account with the following caption:
“Video from the farm when I was running away in the cornfield and my dad was taunting me because I wanted him to come with me… We lost the farm when we lost everything else. But today I got to buy it back for him.”
When Amy was 12 her dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which coincided with his baby furniture business losing steam. The mixture of the two led to a bankruptcy filing and the farm was one of the things to go.
Amy has discussed her family’s finances in the past.
“I don’t remember how it felt to lose everything, but I do remember men coming to take my dad’s car when I was ten. I watched him standing expressionless in the driveway as it was pulled away. Life got less and less comfortable for us after my parents lost all their money. We began moving into smaller and smaller homes until it fell like we were sleeping in a pile ― and not a fun pile like the monsters in Where the Wild Things Are.”
