“I’m not pregnant,” Amy Adams tells Vanity Fair contributor Nell Scovell in the January issue cover story, clarifying the details of her 11-year relationship with fiancé Darren Le Gallo and adding “I’m not getting married anytime soon.” The two have a three-and-a-half-year-old daughter. Of Le Gallo the Academy Award-nominated actress says, “I know he’s completely capable and lovely, and beautiful, and offers something I could never hope to offer just in the nature of his being.”
For American Hustle, David O. Russell’s upcoming film on 70s-era New Jersey mafia, Adams tells Scovell she cultivated a “hungry and tan” look, losing weight to attain a svelteness that she shows off while dancing in a white swimsuit. “Yeah, that’s terrifying. It’s amazing what a tan can do. Because I’m not tan, so that was fun to play with.” Adams says her slinky, bra-less wardrobe for the film required two things: confidence and “sort of a laissez-faire attitude about what your breasts are doing.”
Adams tells Scovell that she loves to sing, whether it’s for her daughter Aviana, on set with Russell, or at karaoke with her friend Anne Hathaway. But she could never get Idina Menzel to sing a duet of “Defying Gravity” from Wicked with her. “I’d go up to Idina in the hallways during Enchanted,” Adams tells Scovell, “and I’d say, ‘I hope you’re happy…I hope you’re happy now… ’ And she’d just go, ‘It’s not going to happen, Amy.’”
She also uses music as a form of therapy. “When things are out of control,” she tells Scovell, “I’ll sing the ‘Golden Helmet’ song, from Man of La Mancha. I’ll just go…[sings] ‘I can hear the cuckoo singing in the cuckooberry tree…’ And everyone in my life knows that means the situation is spiraling.”
Scovell also writes of Adams’s generous spirit, showcased by her habit of recommending actresses for roles. “I get excited for people when I know I should be competitive,” she says. “I’d say in an audition, ‘I don’t think I’m right for this, but you know who you should get?’ I used to do that when I was an unemployed actress.” She then mimics herself pitching in a meeting: “Has Zooey Deschanel come in? Because she’d be fantastic . . . Have you met Emily Blunt? Because she is really wonderful.”
However, Adams insists she’s far from perfect, telling Scovell, “I fluctuate from The Master to The Muppets in my daily routine.”
Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane in the latest Superman movie, Man of Steel, shares her thoughts on Hollywood’s self-imposed body issues—and why her wedding plans keep getting delayed, but definitely not canceled.
Adams’s ability to transform is part of the reason for her four Oscar nominations and three Golden Globe nods (and one win). She can disappear into a role, looking wildly different from movie to movie. “I have no features without makeup,” Adams says cheerfully. “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.”
Adams arrived at the Allure shoot from Boston on a train—and promptly posed in another one. She’s said in interviews for years that she just doesn’t have time to get married to the tall, dark, and very handsome Darren Le Gallo, her fiancé since 2008 and the father of her daughter, Aviana, born in 2010. One could assume that now that the two have a child together, there’s not much point to a wedding. But Adams emphatically disagrees: “No! There is a point to it. We both have a very specific idea that we want to do this [the ceremony] in spring or fall, like in those months, but every time I’m busy working.” Ultimately, she says, “I want something very family oriented and laid-back.”
With fair and sensitive skin, Adams relies on expensive moisturizer—”La Mer has fixed some bad problems,” she says—and has totally given up on waxing. “I can’t wax because bad things happen. So I shave. I use Eucerin Calming Body Wash instead of shaving cream, and I don’t get razor burn anymore. It’s not its intended use, but I want to keep talking about it, because I’m afraid they’ll discontinue it.”
Adams, who loved the swingy skirt on this Chanel dress, describes her Lois Lane as “a little chubby” around the middle. “That’s all right. She flies around the world eating whatever’s available,” she says. (When asked whether she could really be described as chubby, Adams quickly responds, “No, I’m sorry I said that.”) Does she worry about her own weight? Holding herself to Hollywood’s unrealistic standards is a hard habit to break, Adams says, but she’s trying, both for herself and for her daughter. “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. Do you know, the people I love as actresses, I’ve never, ever sought out pictures of them to see what they look like in a swimsuit.”
She’s the unstarriest of megastars but Amy Adams loves the idea of being a diva and is set to play Lois Lane in Summer’s biggest blockbuster – Man Of Steel.
In her exclusive cover interview in the new issue of ELLE UK, which is on-sale on 5 June, Amy admits that she recently ‘stood for half an hour waiting [at a falafel joint] and no one paid attention.’
It’s almost unbelievable that a four-time Oscar nominated Hollywood A-Lister with trademark red hair can remain that anonymous. But then, Amy Adams is pretty extraordinary.
Our July cover star started out as a waitress in a musical theatre restaurant, entered the limelight in Catch Me If You Can in 2002 and then disappeared again before finding her stride: ‘I choked. I felt this pressure to suddenly be this level of actress that I wasn’t confident enough to be.’
‘Being an actress hasn’t made me insecure. I was insecure long before I declared I was an actress. I like not being noticed.It has been a struggle because I love performing, but if I’m in a group of people and someone has a bigger personality I’m like “Go ahead, and have fun! It looks like a lotta work.”‘
She also reveals the secret to being low-key, escaping the paparazzi and what it’s like feeling out of place at the Oscars: “I had an existential crisis at the Oscars, sitting next to Sean Penn and Meryl Streep and being like, ‘What am I doing here? I don’t belong here.’

Amy Adams says playing Lois Lane means she has finally won her dream role.
The 38-year-old actress jumped at the chance to play Superman’s love interest in Zack Snyder’s ‘Man Of Steel’ after having previously read for the character in McG’s axed ‘Superman: Flyby’, and Bryan Singer’s ‘Superman Returns’.
She said: ”I have always identified with Lois. She is suited to my personality. When she came up for the third time, I was like, ‘Okay, this is ridiculous. I have to play Lois’.
”I know other people have played the role, and others will play the role after me, but this was me putting my stamp on it.”
Despite the number of comic book characters on the big screen and the number of times the Superman character has been revived, Amy believes the new adventure is one the most realistic to date, particularly in terms of her character’s development.
Amy explained to Empire magazine: ”Ours is the origin story. Following the ideas of the independent, feisty woman, all those things, but set in a more identifiable world. She had become more of a free-ranging journalist.
”Someone who likes to be hands-on. The nature of the newspaper business has changed so much. There is so much more pressure.”
“When I did Catch Me If You Can, in 2002, I had a really big crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. I had fixated on him in Growing Pains and in Titanic. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, if I ever work with Leo, it will be wonderful.’ And then, there I was, with pigtails—looking not at all like Gisele, whom he was dating at the time. I figured my chances were pretty slim, so I just focused on the work.”
Go backstage on Amy Adams’ shoot for Lacoste’s new Eu De Lacoste scent…
Amy Adams makes a stunning face for Lacoste’s fruity new fragrance. In our video we go behind the scenes on her stunning shoot as she strikes a pose and reveals what makes the fashion brand such a great fit for her.
Speaking of the gig she explains: “It was such an honour to be asked to be the face of the new fragrance. The scent is fresh, feminine and delicate.”
“I love the notes of delicate pineapple flower, it really brings something unexpected to a classic and sophisticated scent.”
It’s not even awards season yet, however recipients of the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards have been slowly revealed over the past few weeks. Among the latest winner announced is Bradley Cooper, People’s 2011 Sexiest Man Alive, who’s being honored for his work in Silver Linings Playbook. Cooper and his co-star Jennifer Lawrence are on pretty much everyone’s list of potential 2013 Oscar nominees following screenings of that film at festivals, so it comes as no surprise that Cooper’s earned the attention of the Hollywood Film Festival. And Cooper’s Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell will also be picking up an award at the 2013 Hollywood Film Festival awards gala. Cooper’s receiving the Hollywood Actor Award and Russell has earned the Hollywood Director Award.
