In some sort of weird events (like not having an Oscar, yet) Amy didn’t have her own Vogue cover. Until now… because she’s gracing the December cover of Vogue magazine, featuring a beautiful photoshoot by Annie Leibovitz to celebrate Big Eyes.
It is 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday, and Amy Adams is standing in the parking lot of the Metro Party Shoppe about 30 miles outside Detroit, one of those multipurpose country stores that are particular to the Midwest: liquor and cigarettes, pizza and subs, bait and tackle. It is late September, and she has been living in Detroit on and off since May, reprising her role as Lois Lane in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Last night she was supposed to be filming scenes outside all night—on a helicopter. “Not my favorite,” she says. “I don’t like things with sharp rotors that fly.”
Adams, it turns out, is not exactly a thrill seeker. Indeed, she’s more of a panic-first kind of person, someone who has a tendency to imagine the worst-case scenario and then work backward from there. Nevertheless, despite an ominous sky and eighteen-mile-an-hour winds, she has gamely decided we should go fishing, and so we have come here to meet Captain Steve Jones, who will take us out onto the very choppy waters of Lake St. Clair on his 31-foot boat. Neither of us has an inkling of what awaits, but as we are standing at the counter buying minnows, Adams, wearing jeans, a macramé sweater, and black rubber rain boots, asks Captain Steve, a plain-spoken guy raised here, if there’s any danger in going out in this weather. “Well,” he says, neither smiling nor laughing, “if you fell in today, you probably ain’t gonna make it.”
