Last Friday (December 2) Amy Adams attended in Los Angeles a screening followed by a Q&A of her new film Arrival, held by Variety. Peter Debruge, Denis Villeneuve, Eric Heisserer, and Shawn Levy took part of it, and you can find photos added in our gallery.
Last night Amy attended a screening hosted by Spike Jonze and The Cinema Society for her new film Arrival, which follows a linguist as she attempts to communicate with alien visitors. Fellow actresses Sienna Miller and Christina Hendricks was among the attendees, and Amy was also joined by husband Darren LeGallo. Check pictures added in our gallery.
Earlier this month The Guardian has published a great article with Amy, made right after the Arrival premiere at BFI London Festival. They mentioned the headlines made the day after, about a supposed “wardrobe malfunction”, and the interview started from it. Go to their website for the full piece, but here’s an excerpt:
When we meet in a central London hotel, she is wearing a simple blue dress and oversized matching cardigan which she hugs around her protectively; only her blow-dried hair and full makeup, still fresh from a photo shoot, suggest a life that involves a little more maintenance than that of your average woman.
“Are you going to ask about my dress [from the premiere]?” she asks warily, and her shoulders hunch a little as she retreats a few inches back on the sofa.
No, I was going to mention the gross reaction to it, I say.
“Oh right!” she says, moving forward, shoulders relaxing. “You know, this is something I struggle with because I’m not going to wear turtlenecks for ever. So I hope we can get to a point where a woman can wear a low-cut gown and still have some relevance. It’s disheartening, and having a daughter it’s doubly disheartening, that we’re still here. I was talking about this earlier with my husband: can you imagine a woman saying about a man, ‘Well, you saw how his pants fit – you could clearly see the curve of his bottom! And I’m not supposed to touch it? Come on!’” This subject means so much to her that, despite her wholesome Midwestern nature, she dares to say ‘bottom’ to a stranger – although she winces a little. Normally, her strongest expressions run the gamut from “gee” to “gosh”.
Adams shot her designer-clad scenes in Los Angeles, separately from the Texas carnage, with her character decked out in Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Chanel (though zero Tom Ford designs, as the director has taken pains to separate his fashion and movie careers).
She arrived on the set after the carjacking sequence had been shot, “and you got the sense that the crew had witnessed something. It seemed like they were survivors,” says Adams, today wearing a leather pencil skirt designed by her director, and sandwiched between Gyllenhaal and an immaculately dressed Ford.
This Friday (18) Amy Adams, Tom Ford, Michael Shannon and Aaron Taylor-Johnson attended The Build Series to talk about Nocturnal Animals. Check pictures in our gallery.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also hosted a screening of Nocturnal Animals, followed by a Q&A, this Thursday (17), and pictures are now added in our gallery.
