Amy Schumer recently became the first woman to ever make the Forbes highest-paid comedians list, but that isn't the only way the American stand-up star has been breaking barriers.

Schumer has been giving some much needed real-talk on body image and her latest Instagram posts are the perfect examples of this.

'Today's look. You can be sick and not be a size 2 and still feel great about yourself!' she captioned a selfie, which has received 159,000 likes since it was posted on Sunday.

Just to emphasise her message, Schumer followed up with a close-up shot of her stomach and wrote, 'Solution areas! Try and only be kind to yourself today. Love yourself like you're your own mother.'

These reminders to love and be kind to ourselves are more proof that Schumer is the celebrity role model we need. Her posts follow a recent Today Show appearance, when Schumer told journalist Maria Shriver that body confidence had been 'a struggle for me my whole life.'

'It's really exciting for me to be in a position to say, what about loving yourself how you are,' Schumer explained. 'What about saying this is how I look and I'm beautiful and I'm strong . . . You're not going to be what everybody loves. But you have to love yourself. Making the decision to do that is something you can actually do."'

Some powerful words we should all hold on too.
