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.”
