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.”

W Magazine Movie Issue: The Year’s Best Performances

W Magazine Movie Issue: The Year’s Best Performances

W Magazine unveiled today its new Movie Issue, and Amy is among their 2017 Best Performances.

She’s featured in one of the four covers, alongside actor Matthew McConaughey. Some other featured stars are Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, and Chris Pine.

Amy Adams: Arrival and Nocturnal Animals

“Tom Ford became my muse on Nocturnal Animals. My character, Susan, was very personal to Tom, and so I based my interpretation on him. Tom would ask on set, ‘Why is Amy using her hands like that?’ And I said, ‘I’m copying you, Tom!’ I used him. I used him up.”

They also talk about 2016 being the Year of Female Empowerment on Screen.

In a year when a woman was denied the presidency, female characters prevailed on the big screen: Amy Adams was a linguist who brokered world peace in Arrival and a regretful art dealer in Nocturnal Animals. Natalie Portman brought nuance and steel to her portrayal of an icon, Jackie Kennedy; Annette Bening was at once enigmatic and commanding as an unorthodox 1970s matriarch in 20th Century Women. And Taraji P. Henson was fierce as a little-known heroine, NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, in Hidden Figures. Unlike much of the country, Hollywood exalted in female empowerment, and audiences rejoiced.

We’ll work to get you proper scans in our gallery asap. For now, check the HQ versions of both cover and photoshoot, thanks to my friend Annie from Cate-Blanchett.com

Amy covers GQ UK

Amy covers GQ UK

Amy Adams is gracing the cover of GQ UK, on its April issue. The beautiful photoshoot is by Norman Jean Roy.

On the announcement interview she talks about the American Hustle pay gap.

I knew I was being paid less than my male co-stars. I didn’t speak about it before and I’m probably not going to speak about it forever, because I disagreed with… not Jennifer per se, but people who had opinions on how women should go about negotiating. The truth is we hire people to negotiate on our behalf, men and women… I knew I was being paid less and I still agreed to do it because the option comes down to do it or don’t do it. So you just have to decide if it’s worth it for you. It doesn’t mean I liked it.

The April issue of British GQ is available Thursday 3 March on newsstands and as a digital edition.

Amy Adams covers W Magazine’s Movie Issue

W Magazine revealed their Movie Issue covers for the best performances of 2014 and, once again, Amy is featured, this time for Big Eyes. She was photographed by Tim Walker in a very funny photoshoot.

Amy Adams in Big Eyes
“My favorite love story is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I like messed-up, strong women, 
and Holly Golightly has both great vulnerability and strength. She’s found a way to change her reality and then, surprisingly, finds someone she truly trusts. A man who’s willing to stand by a woman who is trapped by the persona she’s created—that’s my kind 
of love story.”

Parade photoshoot and article

Parade photoshoot and article

As you know, Amy is featured on cover of Parade magazine. Their official website has the article and some pictures from her photoshoot already up.
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.”
