So exciting! Amy Adams was named best supporting actress today for her performance in The Master by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association! The critics group previously announced that it will honor the winners during the awards ceremony on January 12, 2013 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Los Angeles. We will, of course, provide you with coverage from the event. Big congrats to Amy for the win!
It’s being reported that Amy will be the face of a new Lacoste feminine fragrance.
Amy will reportedly be part of a large scale promotional drive online to promote the scent prior to a global in-store launch. The star joins actor Adrien Brody in being targeted by the French brand for their new campaigns.
According to WWD, the brand — known for its ties with some of the best legends in tennis, and of course, their colorful collection of polo shirts — plans to create a scent that is like “the feeling on skin of pure white cotton fabric.”
Amy Adams has ditched the ingenue roles for unforgettable turns in classy awards fodder from big-name directors – and now she has worked with Clint Eastwood in Trouble With the Curve
It’s an absolutely archetypal American face; you can read a multitude into it. Look long enough at Amy Adams’ pre-Raphaelite cascade of orange-red hair, her pale complexion – with its susceptibility, no doubt, to freckles and sunburn – the upturned chin, the tough-cookie set jaw, and the slender sloping nose, and soon enough you will discern the possibilities: Anne of Green Gables, Annie, if she was still young enough, or one of Willa Cather’s doughty Nebraska Plainswomen – Thea Kronberg, perhaps, from The Song of The Lark – Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother, eyes fixed for ever on the middle distance, or any number of western farmwives or lady-gunfighters. Take names from Henry James or Edith Wharton – Daisy Miller, Undine Spragg – and Adams can be imagined embodying them all with ease and subtlety. In her most recent movie, Trouble with the Curve, she’s the estranged daughter of another American icon, Clint Eastwood, no less, while in her most impressive – and unsettling – performance in several years, in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, she is the womanly power behind the throne of yet another American archetype – Philip Seymour Hoffman’s avuncular, alcoholic religious fraud Lancaster Dodd.
