I first remember noticing Amy in Enchanted. The movie itself was atrocious, but my daughter loved it and it was at least marginally entertaining. It was either watch that, or do dishes. Just for future reference? Dishes? Will always come in last place. Dishes will always lose.
Anyway, I remember thinking that the entire movie was sort of off-kilter, what with Amy’s oddball acting techniques and the movie exec’s seemingly-strange choice for Amy in the lead role, but then I realized I was looking much too deeply into it – it was supposed to be kind of goofy and unconventional, and those two reasons are the reasons I’ve grown to love Adams as I do. That and Night at the Museum 2. That bitch right there was a classic.
Amy is the cover model for the latest issue of Marie Claire, and she sat down with the mag for a pretty hot photo shoot in addition to her interview as well.
Amy on, yes, having sex:
“I did one interview when I was pregnant, and the writer said he thought people would be surprised to know that I had sex. I didn’t know what to say. I was like, ‘Excuse me if it takes a minute to process the fact that you think I’m asexual.’
On choosing pole dancing lessons as her method of losing that extra baby weight:
“Some mom friends said it’s a good way to lose the baby weight. And I’ll do anything to get off of that treadmill.”
On playing a ‘tough bitch’ for her role in The Fighter:
“[People are saying] ‘Amy, you’re finally playing yourself!’ It’s not that she’s like me. It’s just that she’s less naive. My other characters haven’t been tested. She has been through it.”
Check out the photos from the shoot – this is one girl that cleans up pretty well.

The actress got engaged to her boyfriend of six years, actor Darren Legallo.
The couple met in an acting class in 2001.
“He’s really special. I’m really lucky because he’s not competitive with me. He supports and embraces my success as mine. And he has his own goals for himself, but he never makes my success his failure.”
Maybe I need to start taking acting classes!!!

Does anyone else feel this way?
I mean, there’s nothing wrong with her. She’s just some random actress who generally does a good job of staying out of the tabloids, but whenever I see a picture of her, I’m just annoyed. I know it’s totally unfair of me. I mean, I have absolutely no basis for this feeling, it just comes.
Here’s Amy at a screening for Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day in NYC
(Side note: As I was typing in Amy’s name, I kept spelling it “Amy Adamns.” I did this like three times in a row, and couldn’t figure out why I insisted on putting an “n” in her name. Then it occurred to me that I’m just so used to typing the word “damn” that my fingers type “dam” and just assume an “n” should come next. I need to be hospitalized.)
