Indiewire has published a video interview with Amy made during TIFF.
Which role will critics and Academy actors reward? I’m betting it’s smart sci-fi “Arrival” over artfully stylish “Nocturnal Animals.” But having two to choose from is a good thing, as Adams continues on to reprise Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” and the fairy-tale princess Elle in “Disenchanted.”
What’s next: Like her peers Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Chastain, Adams wants to produce her projects. That includes TV showrunner Marti Noxon’s cable adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2006 novel “Sharp Objects” (2017, HBO), to be directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, in which Adams plays an emotionally fragile reporter who returns to her hometown to report on the murders of two teenage girls.
Amy sits down for an appearance on Harry Connick Jr.‘s new daytime talk show Harry, airing on Friday (September 16). Here are some clips, and in one she talked about her daughter Aviana. Check the previews and don’t forget to catch up on the show on TV today.
I don’t worry about campaigning,” said the actress, who also is getting awards buzz for ‘Nocturnal Animals.’ “The only campaign I’m worried about right now is the presidency.”
In Arrival, Amy Adams plays a genius linguist recruited by the U.S. military to understand the language of alien visitors who mysteriously land all over the globe.
Critics are lauding her performance in the Denis Villeneuve-helmed sci-fi drama — as well as in Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals, which also is playing at the Toronto International Film Festival. When asked about promoting two strong titles throughout the awards season, she laughed, “I don’t worry about campaigning. The only campaign I’m worried about right now is the presidency.”
After playing a linguist — and watching her own young child learn how to speak — she has admittedly reflected on the topic of communication. “Intent is just as important as content, and sometimes, in today’s media, intent gets lost inside the content,” she told reporters on Monday. “That’s why I think it’s so important to have face-to-face communication, and that’s what this film reminds me [of.] You do have to look at someone to communicate with them. I hope we don’t lose that.”
