Amy Adams and Andrew Garfield chatted during a taping of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” on a range of topics, including their portrayals of comic-book icons. For more, tune in when the fifth season premieres on PBS SoCal, presented by The Venetian Las Vegas, on Jan. 3.
In her new movie Arrival, Amy Adams plays a communication specialist translating messages from possible alien lifeforms, so it was only fitting that when she stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday she had to try to interpret a mysterious transmission.
Jimmy Fallon challenged Adams to a round of his game the Whisper Challenge. Adams was asked to put on headphones blasting music while Fallon sang a song. Her job was to figure out what song lyrics he was singing by reading his lips.
As Fallon sang the words to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger”, Adams guessed, “Something… for fashion?” Fallon proved to be just as awful at the game. When Adams sang the Bangles’ “Walk like an Egyptian”, Fallon guessed: “Rolling like a chick machine?”

Five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams discussed her young daughter’s feelings toward her male co-stars on “Good Morning America” today, especially focusing on little Aviana’s former crush on “Man of Steel” Henry Cavill.
“Oh yeah, oh yeah,” Adams said of her now 6-year-old’s affection for him. “She doesn’t anymore. She makes it very clear. She’s like, ‘Do you remember that funny time when I thought Henry was cute?’ She kind of pinched him on the toosh. She was like a year [old], and Henry was like, ‘She’s your daughter.’”
“She was much cooler about Jeremy [Renner]. She’s much older now,” said Adams. “We got along great. He has a little girl so they ended up playing together. She kind of thinks of him as the dad.”
In the new movie “Arrival,” Adams plays a linguistics professor drafted by the FBI to communicate with aliens.
“I’ve been recruited by the U.S. government to decipher an alien language,” she explained, jokingly adding that being a parent helped her pull off the role of pretending to understand the strange language.
“I got the script and it was so different and so unique and something I really had to be a part of,” she added.
“Arrival” hits theaters tomorrow.
