The wait is over: Amy Schumer’s new movie I Feel Pretty is finally in theaters. It’ll make you laugh, cry, and laugh until you cry. I Feel Pretty is about a woman named Renee (Schumer) who struggles with self-worth and being confident in who she is. But after she hits her head during a SoulCycle class, she sees herself in a new light — as a beautiful, flawless woman. Over the course of the movie, along with her BFFs (played by Busy Philipps and Aidy Bryant), Renee’s total confidence in her appearance gives her the confidence to be herself in every single aspect of her life — at work, in love, and beyond.

I Feel Pretty is a sweet, hilarious, and oh-so relatable reminder that no matter what you look like on the outside, if you have the ultimate confidence in yourself on the inside, you can change your life. It gently reminds you to love and embrace yourself just as you are, and insists that you are enough.

Busy Philipps, who plays Renee’s friend Jane in the film, has two young daughters IRL. Birdie is nine and Cricket is four. (If you don’t follow Busy on Instagram, remedy that ASAP. Her commentary on life and snapshots of her daughters will instantly bring a smile to your face.) We spoke with Philipps about how she discusses body positivity with them.

Philipps said a lot of that language is about how physically strong her daughters are.

All in all, Philipps just tries to remain aware of how her words and actions, even small ones, influence Birdie and Cricket.

Busy Philipps, you’re definitely a cool mom. No, you’re the COOLEST mom.

I Feel Pretty is now playing in theaters.
