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.

Amy Adams and Jean-Marc Vallée talk family dysfunction and rock to Led Zeppelin

Amy Adams and Jean-Marc Vallée talk family dysfunction and rock to Led Zeppelin

Amy Adams and Jean-Marc Vallée talked to LA Times about Sharp Objects. Check below the interview:

Get actress Amy Adams and director Jean-Marc Vallée into a room together and at some point Led Zeppelin might start blaring through the puny speakers of an iPhone, with Adams doing a subtle sing-along midway.

“We could keep this going,” Adams warns, as she bobs her head in time along with Vallée to the iconic band’s “What Is and What Should Never Be” inside a Beverly Hills hotel on a recent afternoon.

The musical moment is enough to make you wonder what could have been. The two were set to team up on a biopic of Janis Joplin, with Adams, a multi Oscar-nominee whose acclaimed work in films such as “Arrival,” “American Hustle,” “Nocturnal Animals” and “The Master” propelled her to the top ranks of Hollywood actresses, set to play the legendary ’60s rock singer.

That project was ultimately shelved. But music, ever so slightly, has finally united them in a different endeavor: HBO’s“Sharp Objects.”

FOX sets ‘The Woman in the Window’ release date

Fox has dated psychological thriller The Woman In The Window for October 4, 2019, Deadline is reporting.

Amy Adams will star in the former, Joe Wright and screenwriter Tracey Letts’ adaptation of A.J. Finn’s hit Hitchcockian-style novel about an agorophobic child psychologist with a drinking problem who one day witnesses a crime take place in the house across the park. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing.

The slot means The Woman In The Window could potentially feature in early 2020 awards chatter. Fox’s similarly-angled Oscar-nominated box office smash Gone Girl got an early October slot in 2014 while Universal releasedThe Girl On The Train at the same time in 2016 to strong effect and a BAFTA nomination for Blunt.

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.
