Variety released today the Playback Podcast episode with Amy Adams, did during Telluride Festival.
On the – very good! – interview, Amy spoke about a number of the filmmakers she’s worked with, from Steven Spielberg to Mike Nichols. And, of course, David O’Russell and her will of working with him again.
I’m kind of a never say never kind of person, but not currently. It’s just, what it requires of me, it’s hard for me to then be the mom I want to be, because I can’t give that much energy and emotion. And I’m really invested on set, so it’s not as if it’s not something I’m interested in doing on other sets, but the way he works just requires a different part of me that I just don’t have to give right now.
She also has spoken out about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice bad press. The criticsim, she felt, “hit a soft spot,” and when it came the attacks on Snyder, she expressed some heartfelt sympathy. “I just felt for Zack,” Adams said. “Zack’s like the nicest person ever, and to see him kind of talked about like that was really hard for me, because he’s really such a respectful director.”
