Amy Adams on Anxiety, Finding Contentment and Her New Netflix Thriller, The Woman in the Window

Amy Adams on Anxiety, Finding Contentment and Her New Netflix Thriller, The Woman in the Window

Amy Adams never planned to take on so many dark, gritty roles. After all, she first became known for playing sweet and innocent characters in movies such as JunebugEnchanted and Doubt. “I intend to do something light, but I keep being offered these beautifully complex roles,” says the actress, 46, whose later performances include well-reviewed turns in The MasterNocturnal Animals and Sharp Objects. “I don’t know what it says about me, that I’m really attracted to the psychology of [people’s] damage,” she told Parade during a recent COVID-safe Zoom from her home in Los Angeles, where she’s been isolating with her husband, artist Darren Le Gallo, and their daughter, Aviana, 10.

Enter her next tense psychological thriller, The Woman in the Window (May 14 on Netflix). She’ll star as Anna Fox, a woman questioning her own reality as she struggles with her mental health and agoraphobia, with an intense fear of being outside her New York City brownstone apartment. When Anna thinks she witnesses a murder while watching her new neighbors from her window, she is forced to confront the traumas of her own life. The film takes on new significance since nearly everyone has spent the previous year in some kind of state of quarantine, peering out of windows themselves. “Given how isolated we’ve all been, I’m curious to see people’s response to the film,” she says. “If it’s more triggering, or if they have more empathy.”

The Woman in the Window, based on the New York Times bestselling novel by A.J. Finn (the pen name of writer Daniel Malloy), also stars Julianne MooreJennifer Jason Leigh and Gary Oldman. It was directed by Joe Wright, who is so consumed by detail, he had Adams run up and down the stairs more than 25 times while hyperventilating. Wright “wanted it to feel like a fever dream of anxiety, and that’s what it felt like,” she says.

But making the movie wasn’t all dark and heavy. “Any time you work with me, there’s a blooper reel,” Adams says, adding that her mistakes usually involve her cursing like a sailor when she messes up. When she had forgotten her daughter was on set one day and she messed up a lot, well, that was the day “we started a swear jar,” she says with a laugh.

Amy Adams on her singular career and her latest role, in Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy

Amy Adams on her singular career and her latest role, in Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy

Netflix Queue released an interview and new shots with Amy Adams. I encourage you to go and read it on their site and admire the beautiful outtakes.

Few actors can stand shoulder to shoulder with Amy Adams. The six-time Academy Award nominee has delivered many extraordinary performances over the course of her career, from her breakout in the 2005 indie sensation Junebug, to her portrayal of Lynne Cheney in Adam McKay’s 2018 political biopic Vice. She’s captivated critics and audiences in Enchanted, Doubt, The Fighter, The Master, American Hustle, and Arrival — not to mention her striking turn in the Southern Gothic miniseries Sharp Objects, which she also produced.

Yet Adams remains grounded. She’s confident, committed to doing the work, but not necessarily Method. “I think sometimes the character comes with me a little bit more than I intend it to,” she says. “It seeps into my being a bit.”

It’s true that she seems to effortlessly inhabit the roles she chooses, including her latest, starring opposite Glenn Close in Ron Howard’s Appalachia-set drama Hillbilly Elegy. The film is based on the best-selling memoir by J.D. Vance, and is adapted for the screen by Vanessa Taylor (The Shape of Water). Adams plays Vance’s mother, Bev, a career nurse and single parent struggling with substance abuse and the scars of extreme trauma.

Her approach was shaped by time spent on set with the real-life Bev (who is now in recovery). “She’s very energetic and colorful and a big personality, ” Adams says. “I think her true desire was to be the best mother she could be, the best nurse she could be. And life got in the way.”
