Quotation of Amy Adams


I find that it's the simple things that remind you of family around the holidays.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Thirty was a big deal for me. It was the age where I reevaluated everything - how I approached life and how I thought about myself. When I look at my 20s, or when I look at any period in my life, I think about how much time I've wasted trying to find the right man.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I'm like the luckiest girl in the world. I've gotten to be a princess, I've gotten to work with the Muppets. A lot of my childhood dreams about who I wanted to be when I was a grown-up, I at least get to play them in movies.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I'm one of seven kids. That'll keep your ego in check.
Quotation of Amy Adams

Quotation of Amy Adams


I always had a larger view. I'm interested in real life - my family, my friends. I have tried never to define myself by my success, whatever that is. My happiness is way beyond roles and awards.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Once I moved to L.A., there was a dark moment of trying to keep up with the girls I thought were pretty. Until I realised that's the stupidest thing you can do because people are so pretty in L.A.!
Quotation of Amy Adams


I think a lot of times we don't pay enough attention to people with a positive attitude because we assume they are naive or stupid or unschooled.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I come from musical theater, and a lot of musical theater is about accepting fantasy. I think it is more about just being open and accepting.

I'd love to be a diva. But I'd then have to send so many apology notes for my abhorrent behaviour.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body - meaning that it wasn't put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Something I'm going to try to really instill in my own family is a lot of tradition. And, I used to have a lot of superstitions, and then I realized that it was kind of hogwash. Once I let go of them, I relaxed a lot.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Most of the time it's the parents who recognise me. They try to tell their kids, 'Look, it's Giselle,' and I say, 'No, no, no, don't ruin this for them,' because I'm usually standing there with my hair sideways and no make-up on. And the kid is saying, 'That is not Giselle. No way. That is some worn-out girl who really needs a bath.'
Quotation of Amy Adams


I was one of seven, and we took a lot of road trips - long road trips. And this was before iPhones and iPads and DVD players in cars. I remember how novel it was when I got my own Walkman so I could listen to music.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I was a pretty scrappy, tough kid; I got in all sorts of fights at school. I defended myself - boys didn't mess with me. But as one of seven children, you have to fight for everything anyway.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Moving out to L.A. for me was a leap of faith. I was very secure in my dinner theater world; I loved it, and I was just like, 'I think there's something else out there for me and I just have to go for it.'
Quotation of Amy Adams


I'm pretty Sicilian if I've been crossed. I don't seek revenge, but I never forget. And I make it hard to repair, which is not a great quality because if people held me to that standard, no one would be around me - ever.
Quotation of Amy Adams


When I died my hair red the first time, I felt as if it was what nature intended. I have been accused of being a bit of a spitfire, so in that way, I absolutely live up to the stereotype. The red hair suits my personality. I was a terrible blonde!
Quotation of Amy Adams


I used to have a lot of superstitions, and then I realized that it was kind of hogwash. Once I let go of them, I relaxed a lot.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I do love shoes that make my legs longer. I have the upper body of someone who's 5ft 8in, so high heels help me even out the discrepancy.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I was the dork in high school who sang musical numbers up and down the hallways.
Quotation of Amy Adams


My dad is a singer. He used to sing in nightclubs, or pizza joints.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I saw some musicals at dinner theaters where I grew up. But I didn't go to a big theater to see one until probably after I graduated from high school when I took myself to see 'Tommy' when it was on tour. I absolutely loved it.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don't see the point. I'm just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, 'OMG, look at Amy!' I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want.
Quotation of Amy Adams


As an actress people always tease me like: if there's anything you can do to make yourself unattractive you will do it.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I have worked with some of the meanest people in the world. You can't do anything to intimidate me.
Quotation of Amy Adams

Quotation of Amy Adams


I thought 'Out of Africa' would be a beautiful ballet.
Quotation of Amy Adams


That's how I prepare for anything - I read whatever I can get my hands on, talk to people. I'm a bit of a nerd like that.
Quotation of Amy Adams


My natural response to a stressful situation is to shut down. I do weird things, like, I don't cry, I get really cold.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I have a hard time articulating the emotional experience of working on a film. Even when I have meetings on films or discussing them with directors, I find that's my biggest challenge. Different words mean different things to people.
Quotation of Amy Adams


When I was younger, my sister thought it was funny to pretend to punch me in the face because my mom was concerned about my teeth falling out. They were loose for a long time, and she knocked out my teeth.
Quotation of Amy Adams


How I work is I work from of very character-driven place. And I trust the writers.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Perfect isn't normal, nor is it interesting. I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blond lashes. You could just paint my face - it's like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I love accents - I wish I could find an accent for every one of my characters. It makes it so much easier when I don't have to hear my own voice.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I have to say I've been lucky in that way in that I've been able to go from different films and different genres with different challenges.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I watched 'The Muppet Movie' obsessively. I can still pretty much say a lot of the lines and do a pretty mean Fozzie Bear.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I'm just grateful I didn't have to spend my early 20s in front of paparazzi cameras.
Quotation of Amy Adams


There's such a work ethic involved in theatre that you can't learn in L.A.
Quotation of Amy Adams


When you're picking up and moving, it does create... well, I can sleep anywhere, which is really useful, it turns out, on movie sets. But what it really does is teach you how to adapt and change and fit into a new group or school, and that really is a lot like turning up to a new movie project and finding your place.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I didn't get into acting to have a moment, I got into it because of people who've inspired me, like Judi Dench, Holly Hunter, and Jodie Foster.
Quotation of Amy Adams


What I respect in people more than anything is work ethic. And Justin Timberlake's got that. He works his tail off, and he knows his stuff.
Quotation of Amy Adams


Being an actress hasn't made me insecure. I was insecure long before I declared I was an actress.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I probably never would have been hired on Broadway had I not moved out to L.A. and pursued acting and film, which is sad, really.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I'm not the kind of actress who asks a lot of questions of my directors unless it's something I really need to know.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I'm much more comfortable speaking through my characters' voices than my own.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I grew up as a Mormon, and that had more of an impact on my values than my beliefs. I'm afraid I will always feel the weight of a lie. I'm very hard on myself anyway. Religious guilt carries over too. You can't really misbehave without feeling badly about it. At least, I can't.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I love talking, and I love communicating with people and hearing new ideas, but I do get very self-conscious about how I form my thoughts, and I tend to be somebody who acts from a very instinctual place and tries to live from a very instinctual place. So, on occasion, when I have to intellectualize an emotional experience, it's very hard for me.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I knew I wanted to be a performer, but I didn't know I would specifically be in film. I actually never thought I would be in film. I always envisioned being on the stage.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I tend to be really pragmatic, but ultimately tend to be attracted to people who pull me into more spontaneity. I've really learned that, through surrender, the best experiences of my life have happened.
Quotation of Amy Adams


If I had a project that I had auditioned for and I was getting close to getting it, I didn't want to tell anybody because I thought then I wouldn't get it, but in reality that really had no bearing on whether or not I got a part.
Quotation of Amy Adams


School was hard for me. If there had been a school for the creative arts, I might have thrived, but... I needed that creative outlet so much. Also, I'm just bad with numbers.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I still think I'm like the poor girl from Colorado who worked three jobs to buy a car. That's still my mentality, so I'll be walking down the street, and I forget what I do and who I am.
Quotation of Amy Adams


It's always challenging when you're shooting a film. Shooting things out of order and keeping continuity on all levels is always for me the most challenging thing.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I like not being noticed. It has been a struggle because I love performing, but if I'm in a group of people and someone has a bigger personality, I'm like, 'Go ahead, and have fun!'
Quotation of Amy Adams


I think that I've always been attracted to characters who are positive and come from a very innocent place. I think there's a lot of room for discovery in these characters, and that's something I always have fun playing.
Quotation of Amy Adams


In high school, I was so painfully self-aware that how I thought of myself was probably very different from what other people thought of me. I thought of myself as just painfully awkward and dorky. I had a lot of hair and was kind of weird. I sang a lot in the hallways.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I think the kick to doing comedy is just to get in a film with really funny people and let them do their jobs. I find that in most comedies, I'm not the funny one, which works out great.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I didn't necessarily fit in in high school. I felt very awkward. I still feel completely awkward and weird in my body sometimes. I'm hoping that's going to go away, but I've just embraced it as reality.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I research every part thoroughly. I talk it out with my actor friends, but then I throw it all away when I get to the set. You have to be spontaneous.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I would say that a lot of the characters I've been attracted to are very vulnerable and they expose themselves emotionally. Not so much in 'The Fighter,' not so much in 'The Master' - I think those are different.
Quotation of Amy Adams


My job as an actress is to make things work and come up with reasons of my own and not just fill in the blanks for anybody else, you know what I mean?
Quotation of Amy Adams


It's nerve-wracking! I'll be up there, singing the song in front of billions of people - oh, and Daniel Day-Lewis! And Cate Blanchett. I'll be going to Taco Bell when the ceremony is over. Mexican food cures me (On singing at the Oscars).
Quotation of Amy Adams


Not at this point. Right now I'm just doing what I enjoy and I've done some different films, I've done some different types of roles. (On being stereotyped as the 'naive' one.)
Quotation of Amy Adams


Whitney Houston came in. Someone dared me to do "the Gap act" on her. You know, the Gap act. So I went up to her like I didn't know who she was, and I said, 'Hi, I just wanted to let you know about our sale items and make sure to check out our new colors'. She looked at me like I was crazy (On working at The Gap).
Quotation of Amy Adams


(2011) I was a hostess at Hooters, and that was sort of fun. I was 17, and then when I was 18, I waited [tables] for about a month. I wasn't cut out to be a waitress, and I certainly wasn't cut out to be a Hooters waitress. That was a short-lived ambition. Everyone would agree, if they could see me, Hooters isn't necessarily the best way to describe me.
Quotation of Amy Adams


[on letting her career be influenced by childhood favorites] I'm like the luckiest girl in the world. I've gotten to be a princess, I've gotten to work with the Muppets. A lot of my childhood dreams about who I wanted to be when I was a grown-up, I at least get to play them in movies. And Lois Lane is one of them. So I'm just excited. I hope I bring something that people enjoy.
Quotation of Amy Adams


[on having the Muppets as co-stars] To see them when they're not animated was really upsetting.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I had an existential crisis at the Oscars, sitting next to Sean Penn and Meryl Streep, and being like, 'What am I doing here? I don't belong here'. I felt like it could all be taken away.
Quotation of Amy Adams


I've always really loved action films, but I don't see myself as a superhero girl, so my Lois Lane is a mere mortal full of imperfections.
Quotation of Amy Adams


"Man of Steel" was an opportunity to be in a genre film without having to train... I always want to defeat supervillains - it's just the chicken-and-broccoli diet that I'm not into.
Quotation of Amy Adams


[on her character Sydney in "American Hustle"] (She) is the most miserable human being I've ever played. She is not - happy. I'm used to playing people that, even if they're survivors, there's some sort of light in them. I don't know that she has that, necessarily...I think I like playing happy people.
Quotation of Amy Adams


[on her role in "Her" with Joaquin Phoenix] It's a friendship love. Joaquin and I were able to create a male-female friendship on camera, and you don't get to explore that very often without undertones and overtones. We're friends, and you really believe that. Or, I believe that. I can't speak for anyone else.
Quotation of Amy Adams


[speaking to Robert Ito about "American Hustle"] I want to say the f-word so much in this interview, because these characters are in such a f'd-up situation. [But] I think it's rude. Mormon upbringing. I'll say it in film. But that's a character. I just won't say it in print.
