Amy Adams throws a change-up in two new films

Amy Adams throws a change-up in two new films

As the wife of a beguiling spiritual leader, Amy Adams’ character in “The Master” takes pains to hide her shortcomings. In public, she toes the party line, extolling the virtues of the Scientology-esque religion founded by her husband, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. And when she suspects her spouse may be cheating, she tells him only that his exploits must never get back to her.

Adams also seems hesitant to reveal too much of herself, staying upbeat but guarded. When she swept into Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle last month out of a torrential downpour, she was unflustered, skin aglow and swaddled in layers of earth tones. The heavy rain meant there was a chance that one of her Central Park summer performances of “Into the Woods” might be canceled, but the actress remained hopeful it would clear up before nightfall.

“I don’t ever pray for rain because I feel awful for the people who waited in line for so long for tickets,” she said, pulling back her long red hair, which was somehow still dry.

If the 38-year-old is hard to get a grasp on in an interview — deflecting questions with smiles and polite “Oh, I don’t knows” — it’s not much easier to get a sense of her on-screen. And perhaps that’s the goal of any actor. Continue reading Amy Adams throws a change-up in two new films

‘Stylist” Interview

‘Stylist” Interview

Amy did a new interview, this time to British Stylist magazine. You can read it below:

With three Oscar nominations under her belt, Amy Adams could be forgiven for resting on her laurels. But as she tells Stylist – she’s only just getting started.

In person, Amy Adams is petite, demure, softly spoken; everything you might expect her to be. Since breaking out in Junebug in 2005 as a happy-go-lucky chatterbox who gives birth to a stillborn baby (a heart-rending role that saw her score her first Oscar nomination), the 36-year-old actress, raised in a Mormon family of seven children in Colorado, has made a habit of playing twee but lovable characters. From a fairytale princess in Disney fantasy Enchanted in 2007, to a young nun alongside Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman in 2008’s Doubt (cue Oscar nomination two).

Another “CinemaCon” interview for “The Muppets”

Another “CinemaCon” interview for “The Muppets”

I just found out this interview done for ComingSoon.net while Amy was promoting “The Muppets” at CinemaCon.

CS: What was it like the first day you guys were on set with the Muppets? I now you had these table reads, but was it really hard to focus on your acting when you had all these Muppets you’ve known for so long there with you?
Amy Adams: For me, I have to say the most surreal thing was, it wasn’t necessarily working with them, because you accept them so quickly as co-stars – it’s like watching and loving Jason’s work and then getting to work with him, but it’s true. Then you accept him as the character he’s playing, so that was part of it. But to see them when they’re not animated was really upsetting.

I’ll be working soon in our press archive, so for now on, you can read the whole interview at the Parade website. The photos are up in our gallery and I hope we can find larger (and untagged) versions soon.

Amy Adams: ‘I’m Trying to Be More Present in Each Moment of My Life’
Amy Adams is still thoroughly enchanting. Let’s just state that for the record right here and now. In her black skirt, red chiffon top, and purple pumps with the four-inch heels that levitate her to the 5-foot-8 stature she believes God actually intended for her, she remains the irresistible charmer who played a princess in the 2007 hit Enchanted. Still, several things are remarkably different about Adams today–starting with her latest film, a 180-degree turn from the sweet-tempered roles she’s best known for.

In The Fighter, starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale–the true story of junior welterweight boxer “Irish” Micky Ward, whose memorable bouts in the early 2000s made him the pride of Lowell, Mass.–she plays Ward’s girlfriend, Charlene, a whip-smart, no-nonsense, working-class barmaid who can land a few punches of her own in a street brawl. “You don’t mess with Charlene,” says Adams. “She says what she means, and I love that.”
