Amy is covering the current issue of Fairlady magazine, and even if there’s no new picture on it, the article is a fun ride. It’s a mix of articles in which she talks about career and her life, including how she copes working and taking care of Aviana.
“I actually love my work more now, because I feel if I’m going to be away from Aviana, I’d better enjoy it. I’m trying to be more present in each moment of my life.”

Man of Steel
Movies.com has a Man of Steel Countdown column, in which they talk a little about character’s past, preset and future. This week, Lois Lane is on the spotlight. Check some excerpts below:
Although we can be assured that Amy Adams will have a different take on Lois Lane, in an interview with Yahoo! Movies, she explained how much she appreciated Margot Kidder’s version in the first two Christopher Reeve films, as well as the challenges of playing such an iconic character that has already been portrayed so well.
“It was intimidating because it was played before by Margot Kidder, whom I love. One of my favorite movies growing up was “Superman” — and “Superman 2.” I was kind of a nerd. I loved them so much. It was important to create a character that was new because I thought she was perfect. It’s hard to step into a role where you thought someone had already achieved what could be achieved. But coming from theater, you’re always stepping into a role that’s been done before, so you’re always excited about it.”
Then in the same USA Today interview from above, she spoke further about Kidder, saying, “I grew up really loving(her). I wasn’t trying to be her but I hope I do enough of a good job to have the same effect on young girls as Lois Lane had on me. I really loved seeing a woman represented as a modern woman in a superhero movie, and not even glamourized, really — she was kind of a troublemaker. She wasn’t a typical heroine. I identified with her from a very young age.”

Get it While You Can
I was convinced this project wouldn’t make it, but it seems I was wrong. The Hollywood Reporter came today with the news that Lee Daniels is in talks to direct “Get it While You Can” the Janis Joplin biopic that has Amy Adams attached to star as the queen of rock ‘n’ roll.
Daniels, who garnered acclaim and an Oscar nomination for his 2009 gritty drama Precious, followed that up with Southern thriller The Paperboy, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman and is now in theaters.
The project is independently financed, and there have been preliminary talks with Focus Features about coming on board, though no deal has been made. An early 2013 production start is being eyed. Robert Katz and Andrew Sugerman are producing along with Ron Terry, who wrote the screenplay with his wife, Theresa Kounin-Terry. Jay Tobin is exec producing.
So, excited much?
