Amy Adams, Scared by Her Own Character

By now, you’d think that Oscar nominations would be all in a good night’s sleep for Amy Adams. After earning best supporting actress nods for “Junebug” (2005), “Doubt” (2008) and “The Fighter” (2010), Ms. Adams has received another shout-out, this time for Paul Thomas Anderson’s film “The Master,” playing Peggy Dodd, the submissive wife of a charismatic religious leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who eventually shows her husband who’s boss with a rather steely hand.

“It’s crazy!,” she exclaimed early Thursday morning as Aviana, her 2-year-old daughter, squealed in the background after rousing her mother prior to the announcements when she awoke from a nightmare.

Crazy — still?

“That’s what’s crazy,” Ms. Adams, 38, replied. “Honestly, I didn’t start working at this pace until I was 30, so to have four in this amount of time feels so surreal. I’d hate to think I have to maintain this. But you never know when you’re going to be invited out again, so I’m just going to enjoy myself this year.”

The enjoyment began on Thursday morning with a celebratory scooter push, courtesy of Aviana, who doesn’t yet comprehend her mother’s career much beyond her closet full of princess dresses. That, and an appreciation for Ms. Adams’s musical turn as the Baker’s Wife in the Public Theater’s revival of “Into the Woods,” at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park last summer.

“For her, that’s what she thinks Mommy does” — sing and dance — “which would be nice,” she said. “But it’s not the way it works.”

It’s a safe guess that Aviana won’t be watching her mother’s take on Peggy any time soon, a role Ms. Adams admitted she didn’t particularly warm to when she finally saw her on-screen.

“I loved playing her, enjoyed going toe-to-toe with challenge,” she said. “I’ve definitely had a lot of other characters where I can like them, but maybe I don’t want to hang out with them. But upon watching the film, Peggy scared me. She really left me feeling at odds.”

Didn’t Amy look fantastic at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards last night? Sadly, she didn’t win but she seemed to enjoy herself with old friends and co-stars at the show. Here’s more good news – she’s on the cover of Citizen K’s Winter issue! Amy’s featured in a phenomenal editorial, looking gorgeous in various outfits, shot in an old building. I have added the cover and photoshoot to the photo gallery. Hopefully scans will be available soon, as well.
