Thanks to the success of her Comedy Central sketch series Inside Amy Schumer, her hit film Trainwreck, and numerous speeches and appearances where she spoke out about gender inequality and female empowerment, Amy Schumer had a pretty sizable 2015. And what advice would the Emmy-winner impart on those stars who find themselves in the midst of a breakout next year?

“Don’t ever respond to the press. Do use a condom,” she told EW at VH1 Big in 2015 With Entertainment Weekly on Sunday night.

Joking aside, however, Schumer did pinpoint one part of her big year that stood out above all others. “I’m really proud of the 12 Angry Men episode of my TV show. I also got to direct that. I was really excited by the response to it. People seemed to dig it even though it was based on an old-timey movie that was in black and white.”
