Turns out, the actress's surprise nuptials to chef Chris Fischer was the result of a drunken conversation with the famed singer and fellow bestie/actress Jennifer Lawrence. (Sounds just like everyone's bridal party, right?). During a recent Sirius XM interview with the Jim and Sam Show, Schumer revealed how she planned the February 13 event, and how Adele was originally slated to be the couple's officiant.
"I was staying L.A. in a house near Jennifer Lawrence, who lives right by Adele and they’re really good friends and I’d never met her before, so we hung out a little bit that week,” Schumer explained. “Then we were real drunk one night and talking about how we wanted to get married and Adele was like, ‘Well, I can marry you,’ and we were like, ‘OK, cool.’ We were making a whole plan, like Tuesday at noon, because she takes care of her own kid."
Those who follow the comedian on social media will recall though that Schumer and Fischer's ceremony was officiated by comedian John Early and not Adele. So how did the Grammy-winning singer lose out on the opportunity? It seems the decision was Adele's, who in hungover clarity, realized she wanted to save her officiating tasks for the couple she was originally ordained for. (It was revealed last week that Adele officiated—as well as planned at, hosted, and sang at—comedian Alan Carr and Paul Drayton's wedding.)
"The next day, [Adele's] like, ‘Hey, we’re not really like friends,’” Schumer said in the interview. “She got ordained to marry her good friends, so I think she was like, ‘They’ll be kind of annoyed if I just start marrying random basic b*tches.’"
Despite the hiccup of losing a key part of their hastily-planned event, it didn't stop the Trainwreck actress and her now-husband from following through with their alcohol-fueled plans.
"We were like, ‘Should we still get married on Tuesday?’ and decided, ‘Yeah, who cares, let’s do it, so there’s no drama. No planning.’ When you see your friend go through planning a wedding, it just seems like it sucks, so I just texted people,” Schumer said, clarifying that no, it wasn't because she is pregnant.
The actress first announced her marriage on social media on February 15, sharing several photos of the intimate gathering at a house in Malibu, where US Weekly reported pals like Jennifer Aniston, Larry David, Judd Apatow, and of course, Jennifer Lawrence—who reportedly "sobbed" throughout the entire ceremony—were in attendance.
Schumer, though, has yet to reveal if any of Adele's wedding-friendly songs made the night's playlist despite her absence on the big day. Watch the actress share the story—and do an Adele impersonation—below.
