The shots were taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Amy said she felt completely at ease in wearing next to nothing: “They asked me how I felt and I said: ‘I never felt more beautiful.’”

The comedienne tweeted about her picture and how proud she was to be part of it:

The calendar launched in 1964 and this current edition also features Serena Williams, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, film producer Kathleen Kennedy and director Ava DuVernay.

Annie Leibovitz said at a press conference: “Pirelli came to me and told me they wanted to shift this year to something different. I made the suggestion that they do women performance artists or women comedians, almost a take-off. I just thought of women I admired and I didn't let anyone in the studio from Pirelli.”
