Whilst we’re waiting for the second theatrical trailer for Man of Steel, Warner Bros has released the first TV spot for the anticipated super-hero film. It’s much like a shorter version of the first trailer we saw. Still, it’s always nice to get some more hype for the movie. Also, in an interview with Collider promoting 42, Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull said ”It’s the Superman movie I’ve always wanted to see. I think the job that Zack Snyder did along with Christopher Nolan – I think that people are going to be very, very excited about the results. The acting, on top of all the incredible action – Kevin Costner playing Jonathan Kent, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, just the cast, and I think the job Henry Cavill did, people are going to really be excited about it. It was a privilege to be a part of and Warner Brothers does a phenomenal job of bringing these things to life, Batman and Superman, and it really is a privilege for us to be a part of.”
Amy stopped by The Tonight Show last night to promote The Master and during her chat with Jay Leno she talked about how much she wanted to be the actual Lois Lane from the Superman movies, later realizing she probably gave Lois too much credit in the smarts department. Adams then wove her fangirl flag high by admitting to knowing all the words to Maureen McGovern’s “Can You Read My Mind?” which Margot Kidder was supposed to sing in the original, but was replaced by a voiceover at director Richard Donner’s discretion.
You can watch this moment – and the whole interview as well – below, plus screen captures in our gallery.
Once again, Time has published their list with the Oscar 2013 Great Performances and Amy is one of them. For this year’s Great Performances portfolio, TIME asked fashion photographer Paola Kudacki to take portraits of 11 actors, all of whom appeared in 2012 films that captured key moments in history, and several of whom portrayed real-life people. You will find a beautiful portrait, the video interview and screencaptures added to our site.
Performance: Peggy Dodd in The Master (Oscar nomination, Best Supporting Actress)
“We were a society in transition,” says Adams of The Master’s postwar setting. “Women were given responsibility in wartime, and then it was back to the kitchen and take care of your man. The perception of what was available to women in that era was so different.”
I have added to our video archive some videos of Amy on Santa Barbara International Film Festival, while accepting the Cinema Vanguard Award.
Amy answered questions about her life and career during a 90-minute interview with moderator Pete Hammond before she was presented with her award. She later acknowledged, though, that she has “horrible stage-fright,” which cannot have been helped by the fact that the audience consisted not only of roughly 2,000 festivalgoers, but also her Master writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson and co-star/fellow Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix.
Eventually, Anderson, who doesn’t attend many awards ceremonies, came out to share a few words about Adams and then present her with her award. He noted that she is a timeless sort of actress who would have fit in perfectly in a classic film from, say, 1947 — something she had disputed earlier in the evening, joking, “My mouth is crooked and they would never have accepted me in that era” — and he provoked laughter from her and everyone else by insinuating that she is a drug addict and adding, in a reference to a scene in The Master that was lost on some audience members, that she is the person to go to “if you ever want a handjob delivered with maximum efficiency.”
In accepting her award Adams said, “I didn’t expect tonight to be what it was. [source]
Here’s a video Vanity Fair published with a behind the scenes of the current Hollywood Issue. It has all stars photographed by Mark Weber, including some Amy snaps.
Last night, Amy Adams appeared on a very special episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, hosted by Matt Damon and re-titled Jimmy Kimmel Sucks! Tons of celebrities guested the show to trash-talk Jimmy Kimmel (all in good humor) with guest host – and self-proclaimed Kimmel-hater – Matt Damon. Amy looked gorgeous as she told Damon about the worst experience of her life (and yes, it involved Kimmel) and was super cute with pal Reese Witherspoon. I have added HD screen captures, official stills and the full video clip of Amy’s appearance to the site.
Check out the behind the scenes video of Amy while shooting the campaign for Lacoste:
W Magazine asked to 25 celebrities on their best performances issue “who is your cinematic crush”. Kristen Stewart named Amy Adams as hers:
“I used to have a crush on Harrison Ford but Amy Adams, man. She’s my favorite actress I think right now.”
Amy Adams has a crush on Colin Farrel:
Thanks to InStyle UK, we have the first look at Amy Adams’ commercial shoot for the new Lacoste fragrance!

Also, Amy’s gracing the pages of the British magazine’s February issue (with Jessica Chastain on the cover). Scans will be added next, so stay tuned!
