amy adamsAdams appears on the cover of the December issue of Vogue.  Adams says she had a bit of a meltdown over turning 40 in August.

I was like, “I’m 40 and I still care what people think of me; I still don’t do laundry so I’m always out of things; I’m just not a grown-up at all,” and I had this expectation that I would be by this age. It wasn’t, “Oh, I’m getting old and I’m going to lose something vibrant about myself.” It was more that I was just so disappointed with myself. It’s just awful. Any chance for self-loathing!

The Hollywood Reporter cover

Magazine Cover0 Comments

Swank, Moore, Dern, Arquette, Witherspoon, Adams, and Jones appear on the cover of a November 2014 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. They talk about their bravest moments as an actress and if their children became actors. Witherspoon:

It’s a wonderful business. I feel like I’ve seen the world. I’ve met amazing people. I used to have all these regrets; I didn’t finish college. And about a year ago it was like, “Why would I regret not finishing college?” I’ve had a wonderful life and I’ve been everywhere and I’ve gotten to work with creative people and tell stories. That’s all I ever wanted to do. So if [my kids] wanted to do it, I’d be very encouraging. I do think it’s hard. I would definitely illuminate all the difficulties. But my kids don’t seem to gravitate toward it anyway. So we’ll see.

Oscar nomination


Adams is nominated for Best Actress at the 86th Academy Awards for portraying Sydney Prosser in American Hustle.

Making Hustle was very challenging, so it’s really nice that people not only recognized the film but all the actors as well.

American Hustle


Adams plays Sydney Prosser, a con artist, in this dramedy directed by David O. Russell. After a series of successful cons with partner Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), the pair is caught and blackmailed by FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) into a sting operation to trap corrupt politicians. Co-starring Jennifer Lawrence.

I never fought for or against playing a sexual or sensual woman, it’s just there hadn’t been one offered to me that felt like it came from an authentic place and wasn’t there just to serve the male characters.

There is a point to it. We both have a very specific idea that we want to do this [the ceremony] in spring or fall, like in those months, but every time I’m busy working. I want something very family oriented and laid-back.

Man of Steel


Adams plays Lois Lane, intrepid reporter, in this adventure fantasy written by David S. Goyer and directed by Zack Snyder. After Earth is invaded by General Zod and his followers, Superman must save the world with Lois at his side. Co-starring Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, and Russell Crowe.

I’ve always really loved action films, but I don’t see myself as a superhero girl, so my Lois is a mere mortal—full of imperfections. She’s someone I identify with. So this was an opportunity to be in a genre film without having to train—which was a positive thing.

Julie & Julia

Film Appearance0 Comments

Adams plays Julie Powell in this biographical drama from Nora Ephron. As Powell challenges herself to cook all the recipes in Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, we see her struggle interspersed with Julia Child’s rise to cooking stardom.

I was very grateful that my character wasn’t about her physique. Let’s just put it that way.

Adams plays Sister James, a young teacher at a Catholic school, in this drama from John Patrick Shanley. Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the school’s principal, questions Father Flynn’s relationship with a male student and recruits Sister James to monitor the priest’s actions. It is left up to the viewer to decide if her suspicions are correct or if she wants Father Flynn removed for her own reasons.

There are things I didn’t realize – that you weren’t allowed to leave and you weren’t allowed to leave by yourself. If you had a doctor’s appointment, two of them went together. If somebody was sick in your family, you weren’t allowed to leave. So, you know, when my character says, ‘I can’t leave my class,’ it’s not like, ‘I can’t leave my class!‘ But no, ‘I really can’t leave my class. I’m not allowed to leave because my brother’s sick.’ And so there’s such a great sense of isolation and being sort of trapped in the situation and in this world for her through the story.

Charlie Wilson’s War

Film Appearance0 Comments

Adams plays Bonnie Bach, administrative assistant to Texas congressman Charlie Wilson, in this drama directed by Mike Nichols. Wilson teams up with a renegade CIA agent and a Houston socialite to assist Afghani rebels in their war with the Soviets. Their efforts contribute to the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

It was so much fun. Just to be on that set and learn from these people and get to watch Philip Seymour Hoffman and Tom Hanks do these amazing scenes together, directed by Mike Nichols, it was for me like going to school.
