Several wonderful articles have been published this week about Miss Amy and today I’ve rounded some up. Be sure to pay special attention to The Washington Post as it’s my favorite and totally adorable! There was also two stunning photoshoot pics with it.
“Everyone’s always like: ‘You’re so typecast,’ ” Adams says, referring to the recent roles on her CV. “But actually, when I came out to L.A., I was always the bitchy girl.” What changed? “My hair!”
“I’ve never played super-dark in a film. I think I’d be curious to do it. If a character comes along that I find really compelling and it works out that the director wants to go that direction with me, I’m totally willing to try. I’ve actually auditioned, but I think people have a hard time making the leap from — I don’t want to use this as a cop-out, but my energy is not dark, my being is not dark.”
“Oh, gosh — I can be very dark,” she says. “Of course I can. . . . Light can’t exist without dark. It just can’t. But if my darkness comes out in public, people are going to be so confused, like, ‘Who’s this girl?’ I become very Eeyore.” She sighs, just like the mopey Winnie-the-Pooh sidekick, and suddenly you can envision her curled up on the couch at home, watching Dr. Phil in her pajamas.
“I’m actually a lot of fun! I’m a hoot!”
“I do not always have an unflagging good spirit,” Adams says pleasantly.
“I would say it’s a 75-25 ratio. Those who know me really well aren’t surprised when it comes out — it’s like ‘Whoops, here’s the other Amy!’ ”
Favorite film this year?
“I haven’t really seen enough to know, but I’m looking forward to seeing The Wrestler and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
