“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.
WINNERS: Amy Adams – Hollywood Supporting Actress Award for The Master
Three-time Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams, who appears in “The Master” and “Trouble with the Curve,” is to receive the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award at the 16th Hollywood Film Awards on Oct. 22 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Editor Dylan Tichenor (“There Will Be Blood,” “Lawless”) is set to receive the Hollywood Editor Award, with production designer Sarah Greenwood (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Anna Karenina”) earning the Hollywood Production Designer Award.
“We are very proud to recognize the films and work of this talented actress and accomplished artists,” Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive director of the Hollywood Film Awards, said in a statement Monday.
The Los Angeles Times sponsors the Hollywood Film Awards.
David O. Russell must have had a really good time making The Fighter. The director hit a market of highs with the film, which featured Christian Bale and Amy Adams in two particularly fantastic performances. The director’s newest project American Bullsh*** recently lost Bale, but it is not giving up in becoming a revival of Russell’s (or are we supposed to say O. Russell’s?) golden project: Adams has been added to the cast.
This follows three consecutive movies (Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, and then The Fighter) that boasted Mark Wahlberg in the lead. But neither American Bullsh*** nor his developing picture The Silver Linings Playbook have Wahlberg attached; incidentally, Bradley Cooper, star of Playbook, is also on board for Bullsh***. The only newcomer to the O. Russell-verse is Jeremy Renner, who just signed on to replace Bale.
An interesting similarity among the Wahlberg of the early 2000s, and the Adams, Cooper, and Renner of today is that they’re all stars who have just popped. Their hugeness is visible, but it has not quite been claimed in entirety just yet. Russell has never really toyed with risky casting; the only time he’s ever headlined a piece with even a relative unknown was in 1994, with his debut feature Spanking the Monkey, which starred Lost’s Jeremy Davies.
What Russell has going for him is his talent. His resume of movies shows versatility and creativity, and this will help him expand to a size wherein he’ll be able to maintain relationships with the Adams, Cooper, and Renner of tomorrow. And who knows? Maybe bag another Bale.
“To see Kenneth Branagh play Laurence Olivier is to truly understand destiny. He was born to play this role. As captivated as I was by the vivid portrayal, what impressed me most was Kenneth’s ability to lose himself and disappear inside the ego and vulnerability of the Olivier character. I was so enthralled by Kenneth’s likeness to Olivier that I forgot I was watching a performance. He is able to capture the fragility and frustration of an actor so studied in theater, yet struggling to capture the elusive ‘it’ that one must possess to own the screen. I found myself laughing and relating to Olivier even through his anger-entrenched moments. I admire Kenneth for bringing a sense of reality and humanity to one of the most celebrated actors.”
As an actress, a fiancée, and a mother, Amy Adams is confident there exists the perfect balanced blend of all of her roles — and she is determined to find it.
“I have to trust that I can prioritize my family and myself while still finding the energy and focus for my work,” The Muppets star, 37, says in InStyle‘s December issue. “And I believe I can. I know I can.”
Part of her secret is that Adams chooses not to stress over the small things in life. Despite a few lingering pregnancy pounds, the first-time mom — she and Darren Le Gallo are parents to 18-month-old Aviana Olea — is in no rush to tone up.
“I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I’m like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?’” she says. “Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s okay right now.”
For Adams, motherhood has meant forgoing the makeup, putting off the pampering, and embracing the dried cereal all over her car. Fortunately, she adds, it has all paid off in the long run.
“I’m definitely not one of those women who make it look easy. I’m always running late — and look, there’s guacamole on my purse!” she reveals.
“But I’m more patient than I ever thought I would be, and I’m not so hard on myself anymore.”
And while she and Le Gallo have yet to tie the knot, the couple — who divide household duties between themselves; Adams does laundry while he washes bottles — admit the nuptials are likely to be sooner rather than later.
“I’ll say to Darren, ‘What do you think of May?’ and he’ll say, ‘May. Ha, ha. You just let me know.’ I just can’t decide!” she laughs, despite her opinion that marriage is not “the only way to sustain a relationship.”
“I am putting more pressure on myself now that we have Avi. I’ll figure it out soon.”
For now, Adams and Le Gallo are enjoying time with their baby girl — and savoring the weekly date nights.
“[They include] a lot of food and maybe a glass of wine,” she reveals. “We’re always like, ‘It’s 11:30! Woo-hoo! We’re crazy!’”
With New Line Cinema set on The Mothman Prophecies and Arlington Road director Mark Pellington to get begind the camera for The Orphanage, the Guillermo del Toro produced remake of the Spanish-language ghost tale El Orfanato, the studio is now looking for their leading lady.
Bloody Disgusting has it on good authority that New Line has had talks with Amy Adams to star as “Laura”, a woman who takes over the orphanage where she was raised, to open a home for disabled children. Then her young son begins to play with the same imaginary friend who terrorized her when she was a child. Adams is a 3-times Academy Award nominee having starred in Enchanted, Doubt and The Fighter. She will soon be seen in Man of Steel and The Muppets Movie. To be clear, talks have taken place, but that does NOT mean she is signed to star.
Larry Fessenden penned the screenplay with Sergio Sanchez.
New Line’s been developing The Orphanage since 2007.
