(Photos) Deadline ‘The Contenders’ Panel
Amy Adams took part yesterday from the Deadline’s The Contenders panel, alongside director Adam McKay, talking about her upcoming project Vice.
At the panel, she marveled at the similarities she’d found between herself and her character, as she set out on the project. “Her ancestors came over on the Mormon train; I was raised Mormon. There’s this pioneering spirit that my immediate relatives have that her family has. They all had this hope of an American dream, of finding Zion—the Mormon Mecca,” the actress said. “For me, finding my way into Lynne, it actually felt like I knew her.”
