Last Tuesday (Jun 3) CBS This Morning had Amy and Gillian Flynn to talk about Sharp Objects. Check the interview below:
Last week Amy was guest on Jimmy Fallon show, to promote Sharp Objects. She also took part of the (terrible, IMO) Lit Flip, and you can watch both below.
Last week Amy Adams was alongside co-star Chris Messina and writer Gillian Flynn at Build Series to chat on Sharp Objects. Watch the whole conversation below, and check our gallery for pictures.
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.
“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. ”
“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. ”
“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.”
“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. “

Amy Adams was asked to sing Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” to W Magazine, still as part of ‘The Year’s Best Performance’.
Amy Adams and Andrew Garfield chatted during a taping of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” on a range of topics, including their portrayals of comic-book icons. For more, tune in when the fifth season premieres on PBS SoCal, presented by The Venetian Las Vegas, on Jan. 3.
In her new movie Arrival, Amy Adams plays a communication specialist translating messages from possible alien lifeforms, so it was only fitting that when she stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday she had to try to interpret a mysterious transmission.
Jimmy Fallon challenged Adams to a round of his game the Whisper Challenge. Adams was asked to put on headphones blasting music while Fallon sang a song. Her job was to figure out what song lyrics he was singing by reading his lips.
As Fallon sang the words to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger”, Adams guessed, “Something… for fashion?” Fallon proved to be just as awful at the game. When Adams sang the Bangles’ “Walk like an Egyptian”, Fallon guessed: “Rolling like a chick machine?”
Watch the clips below, plus screencaptures in our gallery.
Five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams discussed her young daughter’s feelings toward her male co-stars on “Good Morning America” today, especially focusing on little Aviana’s former crush on “Man of Steel” Henry Cavill.
“Oh yeah, oh yeah,” Adams said of her now 6-year-old’s affection for him. “She doesn’t anymore. She makes it very clear. She’s like, ‘Do you remember that funny time when I thought Henry was cute?’ She kind of pinched him on the toosh. She was like a year [old], and Henry was like, ‘She’s your daughter.’”
“She was much cooler about Jeremy [Renner]. She’s much older now,” said Adams. “We got along great. He has a little girl so they ended up playing together. She kind of thinks of him as the dad.”
In the new movie “Arrival,” Adams plays a linguistics professor drafted by the FBI to communicate with aliens.
“I’ve been recruited by the U.S. government to decipher an alien language,” she explained, jokingly adding that being a parent helped her pull off the role of pretending to understand the strange language.
“I got the script and it was so different and so unique and something I really had to be a part of,” she added.
“Arrival” hits theaters tomorrow.
At this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Vanity Fair challenged everyone from Lupita Nyong’o to Amy Adams to give Drake’s tropical banger “One Dance” the dramatic reading it deserves. Watch it:
