Amy Adams Attends 2018 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala

Hello, friends! Finally we have some (late) updates to do!

Last week Amy attended (in a very stealth way) the Producers Guild Awards. We didn’t have many pictures unless one of her alongside Batman v Superman’s director Zack Snyder (that was nominated for Wonder Woman).
This Saturday, she attended the 2018 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala. Margot Robbie was honored by the Australian entertainment community with an Excellence In Film Award and Amy presented her the award.

Amy Adams Honored at American Cinematheque Awards

Amy Adams Honored at American Cinematheque Awards

Amy Adams was honoured last night at the American Cinematheque Awards in Los Angeles. Accompanied by husband Darren LeGallo and her family, she was looking stunning in a Andrew Gn Spring 2018 gown.

Sometimes, I question being an actress,” she said as she picked up the 31st American Cinematheque Award at the Beverly Hilton tonight, “Am I doing enough?

“What do you get out of movies?

This time, I asked my seven-year old daughter, ‘What do movies mean to you?’ She told me, ‘I like movies because they allow my imagination to grow and make me feel like I’m dreaming even though I’m awake.

So I want to thank all off you for allowing me to live my dream even though I’m awake.

Watch her speech below:

On tap to laud Adams were Tom Hanks, Kristen Stewart, Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Messina, Michael Shannon, Denis Villeneuve and Natalie Portman.

Villeneuve said during his speech about the actress, “You’re suppose to roast at these events. I don’t know how to do that, but you don’t roast angels.

Julie and Julia and HBO’s Sharp Objects co-star Chris Messina called Adams a “Babe Ruth” of actors “able to see something that no one else could see” just like the ballplayer when he stepped up to the plate.” He regaled the crowd with an experience over the summer when they were shooting a scene for Sharp Objects in a 100-degree diner in the valley. The steamy atmosphere was ideal for the fight scene they had to perform. However, after a few takes, Adams went to the monitor, studied her performance, and “pointed at the monitor. She wanted to do another take. It reminded me of when Babe Ruth would point to the bleachers,” said Messina. Adams called “Messy” Messina “Family. Working with you brought out the most genuine part of my spirit.”

Her Nocturnal Animals co-star Jake Gyllenhaal also delivered heartfelt praises earlier in the night, that her canon “is a mind-bending study in versatility” with roles such as a “bio-hazard single mother, a bad ass bar maid, a neurotic blogger, a starlet and a nun.”

“People sometimes presume that when someone is at the top of their game, that they’re a total nightmare. Amy is the opposite, instead she’s a wonderful person,” said Gyllenhaal, “In short, we’re honoring a unicorn, a virtuoso talent with serious chops.”

For Justin Timberlake who worked with Adams in Clint Eastwood’s Trouble With the Curve, she is a “karaoke monster” who “bullied me into singing ‘A Whole New World’ from Aladdin” while hey were shooting the film in Atlanta, GA. “Quite frankly, I will sing with you anytime. But next time, I’m choosing the god damn song. I have a history with Disney, there’s a whole PTSD,” joked Timberlake. Adams said that Timberlake equally is also a karaoke beast. Recalling their experience, Adams said “There may have been a dance. The tequila part (of the story) was true.” She extolled Timberlake for his excellent work ethic.

Portman never worked with Adams, but is still waiting for “the perfect buddy comedy” to come along for them. Portman said that she “traveled with Amy on the campaign trail” meaning the awards season track. “During these interviews that get repetitive, Amy said something that it was difficult to be an actress because you have to have a thick skin because of all things people say about you, but you have to have a thin skin and be vulnerable when you’re working. She maintains that incredible vulnerability when I see her,” said the Black Swan Oscar winner who balled throughout Arrival when she was five months pregnant last year. It was through Mike Nichols that the duo became acquainted with each other.

Hanks, who worked with Adams on Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can and Nichol’s Charlie Wilson’s War, said that when Adams first appeared as Brenda Strong in Spielberg’s caper, “The local 50 guys asked who is that woman playing Brenda Strong? Where did she come from? What food did they feed her as a child to become Brenda Strong? She’s a vision. She’s a plane so stellar that telescopes are needed.” Hanks recounted Adams’ path from dinner theater, to landing her first film role in 1999’s Drop Dead Gorgeous which encouraged the actress to move to Los Angeles to pursue a professional acting career.

Adams in her speech remembered how she never wanted to mess up a line in front of Hanks because he was a role model. During production on Charlie Wilson’s War, the sound production assistant had to move Adams’ mic, “because my heart was pounding so loud” said the actress; she was that nervous about potentially flubbing up in front of Hanks.

And while Stewart and Adams shared a small scene in a country house in Walter Salles’ On the Road, it was akin to a little-big sister relationship for the Twilight actress. But for Adams, “I was lactating through my dress. She was cool, just smoking and I’m trying to be cool with the young girls while I’m lactating” joked the actress.

You can find in our gallery several pictures from the event. And below, a moment with the tweets (videos included) made during the live ceremony.

Amy Adams: Girls, learn to say NO

Amy Adams: Girls, learn to say NO

Amy was this week at Giffoni festival, as we already posted, to receive the Giffoni Experience Award. She took part of a press/Q&A with the public, in which she talked about her career. The Italian Vanity Fair published some excerpts of her interview – that we translated below – and you can also watch the full video as well.

After a couple of days spent on the Amalfi Coast, Amy Adams arrived at the Giffoni Film Festival with her husband, Darren Le Gallo and her daughter. Aviana, 7, blond, has preceded her mother and has done everything possible to distract her and make her laugh.
The name, if you are wondering what it reminds you, comes from Aviano, in the province of Vicenza. That’s where the military base is located where Adams was born 42 years ago (his father was an American soldier).

Arrival’s actress, just to mention his latest film (but from November 16, we’ll see him as Lois Lane, Superman’s fiancee in Justice League) has talked about the beginning of his career and future goals.

In pills, below, what we have collected.

WONDER WOMAN
“In these years, I have worked with great directors, it’s hard to say who my favorite is, because they are very different from each other. That said, I would love to work with Patty Jenkins, the director who has just directed the Wonder Woman movie. ”

A BED WITH SIGNATURE
“To decide whether to take part in a film, I must first feel in touch with the character, otherwise I could not honestly interpret it. But when I’m lucky, I also find a story that communicates a message I share, as happened with Arrival. I know, it’s strange to say, but the scripts “come to my bed.” That’s where I prefer to read and and I was in bed reading the screenplay of Arrival, which deeply moved me. As time goes by, it becomes more important to tell stories that can be useful to others. ”

AVIANO, ITALY
“I called my daughter Aviana by the name of the city where I was born, in Italy. Of your country I love culture but above all people: people you do not know invite you to dinner and you are so comfortable to accept without problems. By widening the concept, Italy could be defined as a great invitation. ”

THE BEST / LESS EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE
“The movie that has represented me the worst experience on a set is also what the audience likes most. So I can not say that if I go back I will not do it again. It was difficult because I’m a mom and one thing is trying me as an actress, another is finding myself in a situation where it’s complicated to go home after work and find the strength to be a good mother. But I have to admit it was also a useful experience for me: when a role or a set is very stressful they force you to learn to give everything to the character but also to be able to go home and still have something to give to your family. That movie has changed my way of working radically. From that point of view, it has been positive. ”

BECOMING AN ACTRESS? A DREAM
“I thought that becoming an actress was a dream, something unworkable. I wanted to do it but I was shy, I did not feel comfortable with my voice. I started as a ballet dancer. It took a long time to say to myself that acting was what I really wanted to do. Then, over the years, many times I wondered if it was the case to let it go. I put a lot to it before finding the first roles, the waste made me insecure and I kept asking if it was the right way for me. I think it’s important to continue to get the same question. Because even when in the eyes of the other you are a successful person, it may not be what you want, which makes you happy. ”

I, CINDERELLA
“There are a couple of scripts I read at the beginning of my career that seemed to me to be written for me. When I read Enchanted (2007, ndr) I felt so in tune with the character I said to what would become my husband: “I do not see who else could interpret it.”

AH, CHEMISTRY!
“I decided to devote myself to dancing and acting when I was dropping out of chemistry at high school. Until then I wanted to become a doctor, but I realized that I would never have done it. ”

LEARN HOW TO SAY NO
“Is there sexism in Hollywood? For example, women are asked more than men, like getting on time? Joke. Indeed no, that’s right. But I think it’s not just a matter of Hollywood but of all work environments. Anyway, I want to tell an anecdote: one day on the set I was talking with an actor that I was asked to do something that was not required beforehand. “So just say no,” he told me. I answered, “For you, no is an answer, for me it’s the beginning of a conversation.” I like to make people happy, try to go meet them but I realized that eventually it becomes a trap. So my daughter always remembers that there is no as answer. “
