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.

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].

Amy Adams – The journey from big to small screen

Amy Adams – The journey from big to small screen

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’.

Early Career

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.

Playing Camille
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.

Amy Adams attends HBO Summer TCA

Earlier today Amy Adams attended alongside Jean-Marc Valle, Eliza Scanion, Gillian Flynn, Chris Messina, Patricia Clarkson and Marti Noxon the HBO Summer TCA 2018 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, to chat about Sharp Objects. I have some pictures uploaded in our gallery.

The Amy Adams Method

The Amy Adams Method

Few actors are as unshowy, or unshakable. With “Sharp Objects,” in which she plays a self-destructive journalist, the five-time Oscar nominee keeps evolving.

Interview by Reggie Ugwu to New York Times

Amy Adams reached into her fanny pack and fished out a stick of sunscreen. “I’m such a mom-nerd,” she apologized, as if sensing the pretense of Hollywood Glamour melt with each dab to her flush, freckled cheeks. It was a late morning in June and the sun was high; there was nothing to apologize for. But she is congenitally polite and, as she stared up at the storied Art Deco observatory in Griffith Park here, on an 1,100-foot summit of Mount Hollywood, maybe a tiny bit self-conscious.

The hike had been her idea. A brisk climb punctuated by postcard views of Los Angeles landmarks: the Hollywood sign, the Santa Monica Mountains, the gauzy downtown skyline. Growing up in Colorado as one of seven children, hiking had been a family ritual — her parents’ way of getting her and her siblings to burn off energy without busting through the walls or the budget.

But because of an unlikely chain of recent events that, she explained, began with a run-in with her childhood ballet teacher and ended with an overeager return to the horizontal bar, she had suffered an “old lady injury.” Which meant that she hadn’t exercised in a while. Which meant that, even a few dozen yards into a hike with someone whom she just met, she’d already felt herself running short of breath.

Between the panting and the fanny pack, Ms. Adams, already a five-time Oscar-nominated actress at 43, had begun to wonder what she must look like.

I feel like I always … I don’t know if disappoint is the right word,” she said, zipping away the sunscreen. She was wearing dark, printed leggings, a black gift-shop ball cap with her signature strawberry tresses pulled through it and a black T-shirt that read, in big cutesy letters, “Better in real life.” “But whenever people meet me they’re always like ‘Really? That’s who you are?’

She stopped for a moment, then deadpanned the answer that she always thinks but never says: “Yes. It is.

Why Amy Adams Played a Big Part in the Gender Pay Gap Discussion

Why Amy Adams Played a Big Part in the Gender Pay Gap Discussion

During the infamous 2014 Sony Pictures hack, lots of confidential information got released to the public, including salaries of actors working on American Hustle. The company’s PR nightmare turned into a widely discussed social issue regarding Hollywood’s gender pay gap. It was revealed that female stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence were paid less than their male co-stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy Renner.

At the time, this sparked debate and outrage all over social media and Hollywood. Jennifer Lawrence even wrote a lengthy piece about her thoughts and posted it publicly, which deserved much applause. Amy Adams kept silent at first, but the Sharp Objects actress and American Cinematheque awardee eventually spoke up about the issue as well. She made a fair point by saying that the tough questions about gender pay gap should be directed to Hollywood producers. They provide the numbers and attach prices to actors that will best fit their budget, so they should be on the hot seat. Bustle commended Adams for her insightful statement, because most of the time, the media focuses on women as if they hold the answer to the entire dilemma.

Adams also voice her opinions in Allure‘s April 2016 issue. Glamour quoted her revealing statements as she confessed, “I negotiated, and I tried to get paid as much [as Jeremy Renner and Bradley Cooper]. But I felt like if I kept pushing, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity,” she said. “So that’s on me.”

Her statement brought forth what a lot of other women around the world are not comfortable doing: negotiating pay and benefits. Adams is a talented actress who is frequently invited to awards shows and takes home plenty of recognition. She has already received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and her craft has continually improved over the years. It begs the question as to why was she was not considered of the same value as her male co-stars in American Hustle.

Since the incident, more stars in Hollywood have contributed their two cents on the issue. Well and Good recently reported about Benedict Cumberbatch’s noble stand on refusing to accept a role if his female co-star is not paid the same amount. This takes some power away from producers’ hands and shows an act of solidarity among actors.

Other actresses are becoming increasingly outspoken as well. The Hollywood Reporter talked to Ellen Pompeo about fighting for a salary that she deserves. The Grey’s Anatomy star openly discussed figures to the media in the hopes of inspiring other women to do the same. The Time’s Up movement could help end gender pay gap as well by forging 300-strong women actors to fight against sexual harassment and discrimination in Hollywood. Time’s Up is the organization that received Mark Wahlberg’s $1.5-million dollar donation after netizens called him out for passively agreeing to a huge pay gap. That amount was his purported compensation for the reshoots of All the Money in the World, while his co-star, Michelle Williams, reportedly got only $1,000.

Evidently, women are slowly but surely making changes to an industry plagued with politics and inequality. Along with the initiative of Amy Adams and other influential actors, this gap may hopefully be closed for good sooner rather than later.

Last month HBO launched the promotional tour for Sharp Objects with an interview to The Wall Street Journal magazine given by Gillian Flynn, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson.

“Don’t they look related?” says author Gillian Flynn, glancing at Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson, who raise their eyebrows quizzically. The pair play mother and daughter in Sharp Objects, the much-anticipated HBO adaptation of Flynn’s 2006 debut novel, but the suggestion that they resemble their characters makes the actresses understandably uneasy.

Even for those who know Adams’s dramatic range, her portrayal of Camille Preaker is a departure. The darkest, most complex character in a career that has earned Adams, 43, five Oscar nominations, Camille is a newspaper reporter who has written her own story on her body, carving words into her skin. Since being institutionalized, she’s tried to drown her cutting addiction with alcohol. Meanwhile, as Camille’s mother, Adora, Clarkson, 58, relishes withholding affection from her firstborn even as she smothers Camille’s teenage half-sister, Amma, with attention.

When Camille returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri, to investigate the murder of a young girl, she is forced to confront her past and her grief over the death years before of her younger sister, Marian. She and Adora, who presides over the town with emotionless elegance, share a sense of loss, but little else.

The withering mother-daughter dynamic is the brainchild of Flynn. The 47-year-old author—who penned the screenplay for David Fincher’s 2014 adaptation of her novel Gone Girl—wrote this eight-episode series, which airs starting in July. She and Adams also served on the project as executive producers, a first for each of them. The project was spearheaded by women, including Marti Noxon, a Mad Men veteran who co-wrote and was showrunner; and Jessica Rhoades, then a television executive at Blumhouse (the production company that also released Whiplash and Get Out). Jean-Marc Vallée, fresh off the success of HBO’s Big Little Lies, directed the five-month shoot, with long days on set in Northern California, Los Angeles and the 100-degree heat of Georgia—especially grueling for Adams, who was covered with prosthetic scars from the neck down.
