Amy Adams arrives at the Beverly Hills Hotel’s patio doing what she calls her “zombie limp,” the result of a broken pinky toe. Her hair is up, her guard is down and she’s showing off an adorable photo of her 2-year-old daughter, Aviana, dressed up as a purple butterfly for her first Halloween.
It’s a deceptively relaxed moment. In the last 18 months, Adams, 38, has worked with Paul Thomas Anderson (“The Master”), Clint Eastwood (“Trouble With the Curve”) and Spike Jonze (the upcoming sci-fi romance “Her”), played Lois Lane for next year’s “Superman” reboot and starred in the Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park production of “Into the Woods.” Next up: A reunion with her “Fighter” director, David O. Russell.
But, for now, let’s focus on Peggy Dodd, the strong, steely woman pulling the puppet strings in “The Master” as the wife of cult leader Lancaster Dodd. It’s a role that has put the three-time Oscar nominee back into the awards-season conversation. Continue reading The Contenders: Amy Adams on the not-so-polite Peggy Dodd

A jam-packed premiere in New York City on Tuesday night drew fans, a throng of media and, maybe, outraged Scientologists that have been riled up by the film’s basis in the early days of L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics movement. There was extra security hired by the film’s distributor, The Weinstein Company; whether they were required, or even scared off potential protestors, was hard to determine in the thick of the crowd in front of the Ziegfeld Theater on 54th street in Manhattan.
With co-stars Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman not able to make the event, Amy Adams, who plays the true-believer wife of Hoffman’s cult leader Lancaster Dodd, was charged with speaking with the press. She has a number of films coming out over the next few months, and one, an adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel On the Road, offers many unexpected similarities to The Master: a post-World War II setting, lost souls, and small communities.
