Amy Schumer’s hard-living alter ego in Trainwreck isn’t exactly the motherly type, but the R-rated comedy nearly ended with a scene of her lovingly cradling a newborn baby.
Of course, in keeping with the movie’s rom-com-subverting sense of humor, it’s not her kid, but rather her “super-chill” niece.
Intrigued? EW has an exclusive look at the deleted scene, which is among the bonus material included on the Trainwreck DVD and Blu-ray release, out Tuesday.
Director and producer Judd Apatow explained to EW why the scene didn’t make the final cut of the movie. (Warning: Plot details ahead.)
“I usually have a few final scenes shot, and I’m aware that the movie could end at one of two or three places,” Apatow said. “Sometime I say screw it and use all of them. In The 40-Year-Old Virgin, it could have ended when [Steve Carell] admitted to Catherine Keener that he was a virgin. It also could have ended after the wedding, before we see him have sex for the first time. We decided to go with all of it!”
With Trainwreck, Apatow said, “The moment where [Schumer and Bill Hader] talk and kiss after the cheerleading sequence was so great that we knew we couldn’t top it. But it is always wise to shoot something with a baby. Who hates a movie that ends with a baby? Just Darth Vader.”
