Amy Adams is great, I think – she’s cute (like, “as a button”), a great actress (yes, including Enchanted) and seems pretty down-to-earth in every interview I’ve seen her do. However, homegirl needs to hook herself up with some self-esteem because some of the quotes from her new feature in Allure are downright sad. Sure, no one wants to hear anyone – especially a celebrity – go on and on about how beautiful and wonderful they are, but Amy self-deprecation to the next level as she discussed the opportunity to be part of the new Superman film.
“I’ve wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance — as some mere mortal. Let’s be real here. I don’t look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn’t anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot.”
“Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting. Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don’t see the point. I’m just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, ‘OMG, look at Amy!’ I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want.”
“I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face — it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.”
