InStyle sat dawn with Stranger Things‘ redhead Sadie Sink in a cool chat about her style, and when asked about her biggest style crush of late, her answer was instantly: Amy Adams.
Amy has been a role model and a style crush of mine for a long time. When I was little, I loved her in Enchanted and The Muppets, and then when I was older, in movies like Arrival. And her style is cool and always so smart.
The January issue has a connected interview between the duo, which you can read below. Get your own InStyle issue, available for digital download, next December 7th.
Sadie Sink: Amy, you’re one of the main reasons I wanted to start acting. And your style is so elegant, smart, and awesome. Amy Adams: Aw thanks, sweetie. You’re so great in Stranger Things.
SS: Thank you! My personal style is always going through different phases. How would you describe your look right now? AA: Well, my red-carpet style is more classic, but my personal style is very bohemian slash mom. I love prints and long, flowy dresses that are basically muumuus — but very classy muumuus [laughs].

Sharp Objects also received its own nomination for Miniseries & Limited Series.
American psycho-thriller TV series ‘Sharp Objects’ is based on the life of Camille Preaker, an alcoholic journalist, who revisited her hometown in Missouri when she had to report the frightful murder of one preteen girl and the missing of another. As she got home, she had to face her past and the disastrous situation that first pushed her away.
The challenging role of Camille in this eight-episode series was played by Amy Adams. The Hollywood superstar and perpetual Oscar nominee moved from the silver screen to small screen with this role. Amy believes this transition to be an ‘intense experience’.
Amy did not have an easy start. She struggled to balance between the roles she played and her real life. Initially, her husband suffered, she suffered, and when her daughter was a young girl, she had some extremely challenging experiences. She never wanted to be the mother who came home but was not present. So, she had to figure something to work it out.
Coping with the Struggles
Amy learned her way through. Today, she gets time to relax, does a lot of meditation and breathing, and sometimes takes moments to just lay down on the set for a while.
Amy also takes assistance from well-known acting coach Warner Loughlin. Warner Loughlin has helped Amy gear up for complicated roles. Amy works with the acting coach before she starts a project. She does not do so for all projects but for the ones that seem to be quite complicated – like Camille or Louise in Arrival.
Amy’s On-Screen Cults Hollywood has been a preferred target for the cult leaders and staying away for long is not that easy for any superstar. Amy starred in The Master – a Paul Thomas Anderson film centered on a cult known as The Cause, wherein the role of the leader is played by Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Even the cult of Cruel Intentions made a significant impact on the generation of teenagers. It is popularly recognized for marking the first starring role given to Amy.
Amy does not cry easily
In several interviews, Amy has been reported to share that it is very difficult to make her cry. If she is upset, she gets mad. If someone makes her feel sad, she shuts down. Her nature to get upset but not cry has earned her the nickname of Angry Adams. She tends to get extremely precise and angry.
Sharp Objects required Amy to put on and lose weight. In certain scenes, she had to be completely naked on the screen and also be involved in some sensitive and delicate scenes. Amy dealt with situations with the media in the past, like the Arrival premiere wardrobe malfunction fiasco and she knows how to embrace it all.
In a few scenes, the actress needs to show some vulnerability because of sexual experiences. Amy admits that to carry them off, she would have a sip or two of whiskey just like that of her on-screen character.
Did I say to you they’re coming to fight for that Oscar? So…
The current The Hollywood Reporter issue brings Vice cast (Amy Adams, Christian Bale and screenwriter/director Adam McKay) on its cover.
Christian Bale (who gained 45 pounds) and Amy Adams star in a satirical takedown of one of the most cunning figures in American politics as the director opens up about the current climate, Fox News, Bill Clinton (“one of the worst presidents”) and why he’d “choose Trump over Bush and Cheney.”
We’ll have scans added in our gallery asap. By now, you can read the full article at the THR website. On it, Amy Adams talked about her need to defend Lynne.
“I still feel the need to defend Lynne when people talk about her,” the actress says. “For me, it was my relationship with my grandmother. My grandmother who grew up in Provo, Utah, working-class. She reminded me so much of Lynne. I would just think of her and her offering me money to rub her bunions. ‘Amy, I’ll give you a quarter.'”
Amy Adams was one of the A-list stars that hit the red carpet last night for the 2018 Governors Awards at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood. She was looking amazing in a pink Schiaparelli dress, that had a heart embroidery etched near her heart.
Annapurna realized a “Vice” special screening last night in Westwood, with the presence of writer/director/producer Adam McKay, Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Tyler Perry. Reviews are embargoed by now but social media reactions says much as we thought: it’s a great movie and they’re coming to fight for that Oscar. The Playlist has collected some of the reactions.
Dave Karger: Happy to report that #Vice is as entertaining, illuminating, and infuriating as Adam McKay’s last movie, The Big Short. The sharp screenplay and the astonishing Christian Bale are locks for nominations, and I’d predict makeup, Amy Adams for supporting, and Best Picture too.
Anne Thompson: Christian Bale does deliver an extraordinary performance in Vice that will score Oscar points. Amy Adams does too; she admires Lynne Cheney as a powerful pioneer woman. Tyler Perry met with Colin Powell, who made him read his book.
Scott Mantz: VICE: WOW! Bold, daring, very ambitious! Bravura writing & directing by Adam McKay! Gripping & riveting dark comedy! Tour-de-force performances by #ChristianBale & #AmyAdams! Bale will WIN the Oscar for Best Actor!
Eric Davis: #Vice is a bold and horrifying film about the abuse of power and its far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. Incredible performances (Bale, Adams, Carell, Rockwell are all fantastic), and McKay’s whip-smart, inventive storytelling keeps you invested & entertained
Gregory Ellwood: Vice is excellent filmmaking. Wish it found a way to explain Cheney’s motivations more but it’s main focus is the damage he has done. Bale is fantastic. Carrell is great. It’s likely Adams vs King for Supporting Actress.
Check in our gallery some HQ pictures from the screening:
Each year, Variety Studios features exclusive one-on-one conversations with actors and actresses from the year’s most notable films who are expected to contend this Awards season, which they call Variety Studio: Actors on Actors.

Once again, Amy Adams is part of their schedule and this time she’s paired with Nicole Kidman. We have pictures added in our gallery, enjoy!
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.”
