Amy Adams bumped from ‘Today Show’ for refusing to talk about Sony hack

Amy Adams is just lovely, isn’t she? She seems genuinely sweet, she’s adorable, she’s a good actress with a varied choice of projects, mostly all of which are winners, and I just find her incredibly likeable. YMMV, of course, but COME ON. Clearly the Today Show didn’t care about all of that, though – they had no problem bumping her from the show about five minutes before her segment was set to air because she didn’t want to talk about the Sony hack. Wow.

Here’s the NY Daily News‘ take:

Confidenti@l is told that Amy Adams, who got caught up in the scandal when leaked emails revealed she was paid less for “American Hustle” than her male co-stars, “freaked out” before a scheduled appearance on “Today,” refusing to discuss the leaked emails.

Producers insisted that she be grilled on the subject and another source says the interview with the “Julie and Julia” star was “cancelled at the last minute” when they couldn’t agree on what questions she would be asked.

We’re told that Adams, who’s making the media rounds to promote the Tim Burton movie “Big Eyes,” “got aggressive” in the green room before leaving.

Well, I guess they kinda got it right? The whole aggression thing never happened, though – here’s Gossip Cop clearing things up:

The New York Daily News first reported that something had gone awry with Adams’ interview, although Gossip Cop is told that the outlet’s characterization of Adams’ outrage is somewhat exaggerated. We hear the version of events in which Adams allegedly “freaked out” and “got aggressive” in the green room before leaving is not accurate.

Sources tell Gossip Cop that Adams was surprised by NBC’s last-minute request that she talk about the hacking, and expressed her discomfort with the situation. When the show insisted that she answer the questions, Adams relented and agreed to move forward with the sit-down, even though it was her preference to focus on Big Eyes. But when “Today Show” producers realized they might not get significant answers from Adams about the hacking during a live interview, they canceled on the spot.

Also, I don’t feel like going into the sexism aspects of this nonsense, but I suppose it’s worth noting – as Deadline did – that Bradley Cooper, who was also part of American Hustle – wasn’t asked to talk about the Sony hack at all, despite the fact that it would have been far more interesting to ask how HE felt about being paid so much more than his female co-star. That would have been far more provocative than asking a woman to describe shit she deals with on the daily.

The Today Show sucks, end of.

Amy Adams is flawless as the new face of Max Mara

Amy Adams is a lovely woman in every sense – kind, beautiful, talented – and she just got even more flawless in her first campaign as the face of Max Mara. I don’t really care much about the bags she’s selling and would never buy one, but I’d at least give them half a second look just because she’s selling them, probably.

Here are the other shots from the campaign:

And some photos from the red carpet premiere thingamajig:

Love her! So beautiful.

Amy Adams gave up her first class seat to a US soldier on flight to LAX

I feel like we don’t talk about Amy Adams enough. She’s lovely! She’s beautiful, talented, seems incredibly down-to-earth and is kind without the need to draw attention to herself. That latter quality was demonstrated on a flight to LAX on Friday when she gave up her first-class seat to a US soldier in coach.

From People:

The Oscar nominee was at the airport in Detroit on Friday when she spotted a soldier in uniform at her gate and then arranged to give her first class seat to the man, who had been ticketed in coach.

Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie, was also on the flight and Tweeted about what happened next.

“Just saw actress Amy Adams do something incredibly classy,” she wrote. “She gave her 1st class seat to an American soldier. I’m an even bigger fan now.”

“I don’t think he knows she did it,” she added.

“As I was getting seated, I saw the flight attendant guide the soldier to Ms. Adams’ seat. She was no longer in it, but it was pretty clear that she’d given up her seat for him,” Hill told ABC News. “I was incredibly impressed.”

Hill revealed that Adams, 39, whose father was in the U.S. military, briefly chatted to the soldier by the cockpit and then went back to her seat in coach.

“[She] did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character,” Hill said. “And somebody in coach just got a helluva seatmate.”

Aw, isn’t that sweet? (Seriously – no sarcasm there.) I’ve always thought she seemed really lovely, and this just confirms it. More Amy Adams! Amy Adams for president!

Valentino Is Promoting the Bag Amy Adams Took to Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Funeral

Who says luxury brands lack class? Well, lots of people, especially now that Valentino was so stoked to see a celebrity with one of their bags, they didn’t even care about promoting a photo of Amy Adams with it… on her way to Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s funeral. Uh…

Valentino went so far as to put out a fucking press release complete with the above photo of Adams looking incredibly upset and full of grief (as you would be ON YOUR WAY TO A FUNERAL) and the following caption:

“We are pleased to announce Amy Adams carrying the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Duble bag from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection on Feb. 6 in New York.”

Dear God. First of all, just no. Second of all, that bag is ugly as shit and nothing I would pay a penny for (or even take for free), let alone $2,500.
They later “apologized” for the “mistake”, saying they had no idea what the circumstances of the photo were, which I find really fucking hard to believe since it would have been in the description of photos from Getty or wherever the hell they bought it from. Fuck off, Valentino.
