Amy Adams for ELLE UK June 2013




On feeling 'lost, confused' after shooting 'Catch Me If You Can':  "I choked. I felt this pressure to suddenly be this level of actress that I wasn’t confident enough to be. I did a series of really bad auditions, I let the nerves get the best of me. And the couple of years after that it was, "I can’t do this. I’m not strong enough to continue with this level of rejection". It was, "What am I going to do with my life?" I was staring down 30. I was lost, confused."

"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 "

On being 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." I felt like it could all be taken away."

On the beginning of her career:  "I graduated high school and I didn’t have a skill set and I didn’t want to go to college. I needed a job. This is what I could do. And I like it, but it can be very painful. You feel so vulnerable all the time on set, so exposed. But I had that same feeling of being exposed when I was a waitress, I have it at parties, I have it here. I’d love to be a diva. But I’d then have to send so many apology notes for my abhorrent behaviour."

On 'Man of Steel' (where she plays Lois Lane):  'It’s more raw, a little less quippy. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the banter and the relationship between Lois and Clark, but it’s a totally new imagining of the story.  'I was shaking by the end of it. I realised that I hadn’t seen a film with that much action in it since Avatar, so it overwhelmed my adrenal system. Not that it’s all just action, but it is a lot of fun."
