Amy Schumer & J.K. Simmons Re-create One Very Famous Painting

Perhaps we haven't been spending enough time in art museums lately, but we totally overlooked Amy Schumer's slight resemblance to the subject of one of the world's most iconic paintings. No, not the the Mona Lisa.

It wasn't not until a fan pointed out the similarity that we slapped our foreheads and thought, Yes. How did we never notice that the Trainwreck star is totally channeling American Gothic vibes? You know, the Grant Wood painting of the farmer and his wife?

Judging by her rapid-fire response, Schumer had been waiting for this comparison for some time.

Yes, that's Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons holding a plastic fork. What a thing of beauty.

For anyone interested, incidentally, the "farmer's wife" featured in the painting was actually Grant Wood's sister, Nan Wood Graham, who died in 1990 at age 91. The man was Wood's dentist. Anyone up for a little genealogy research?
