During an appearance that will air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Amy Schumer opened up about her not-so-romantic trip to Paris with her boyfriend Ben Hanisch, in which the two each had a “violent” battle with food poisoning.

“We just had our year anniversary,” she told DeGeneres. “Neither of us had ever been to France … and so we were like, ‘Let’s go.’ And so we go. We wanted to be romantic.”

Schumer says she and Hanisch took turns in a thin-walled hotel bathroom when the food poisoning hit, with Hanisch throwing up and Schumer being stricken with “machine gun” release of … well, no. 2.

“I knew it was over,” Schumer joked of the relationship. “I’m yelling at him, like, ‘It was so great dating you! I wish you the best luck! You’re gonna meet the greatest girl!’ But I knew, I knew it was over.”

As DeGeneres and the studio audience burst in to laughter, Schumer tells of the valuable lesson she learned that night: “That is when I learned not to ever throw up in a wicker basket.”

Schumer ended up being so sick that she had to be hospitalized, which she was happy to document on Instagram.

“No red flags with this girl,” Schumer wrote alongside a collage of herself in a hospital bed back in September.

She also shared a dating video-style clip on Instagram from her hospital bed.

“My name is Amy,” she said. “I’m 35. I love grabbing life by its horns and experiencing everything and I love music and food. I really just want someone to share all of that with. So, I’m taking a chance.”

Schumer’s conversation with DeGeneres took a turn for the serious though when Schumer opened up about the body shaming she’s experienced after it was announced that she would portray Barbie in Columbia Pictures’ live-action comedy.

“A bunch of times throughout my career, people have been like, ‘You’re too fat,’ … I’ve been, you know, bullied. And what’s cool is, from being in the public eye for this long, is people — first of all, you build up a thicker skin from it and then you’re like, ‘Wait a minute. No,’ ” Schumer said.

“I look in the mirror and I know who I am and I feel beautiful, and I feel strong and sexy. For women of all ages, there’s no one too young or too old to understand. It never stops and it really has to be about knowing who you are. And like everyday I look in the mirror and I’m like, ‘I can work with this bitch.’ “
