Amy Adams still has Mormon values

Jun 17 2013, 3:40am CDT | by

Amy Adams can't let go of her Mormon values.

The 38-year-old actress was raised believing in the ideals of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - a form of Christianity - which bans cigarettes, coffee, tea, drugs and has a strict law of chastity, requiring abstention from sexual relations outside of marriage.

Although she is no longer a practicing Mormon, Amy still follows the same moral code which she was taught as a child.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, she said: "I grew up as a Mormon and that had more of an impact on my values than my beliefs. I'm afraid I will always feel the weight of a lie.

"I'm very hard on myself anyway. Religious guilt carries over, too. You can't really misbehave without feeling badly about it -- at least I can't.

"Even when I go out with friends and we go overboard at bars or clubs, I wake up the next morning feeling a bit conflicted about having had too much fun."

Although Amy no longer follows Mormon rules she still believes the religion is a force for good, and insists the teachings allow her to bring "a lot of joy" to the people around her and have made her a "positive and hopeful" person.

She said: "Religion can be a positive thing in people's lives. It provides a support system if you embrace it, despite all the controlling and guilting aspects of religion that I grew to resent."

Amy isn't the only famous Mormon, The Killers singer Brandon Flowers is still practicing in the church.

The Lone Non-Oscar Nominee: A History of Rude Trailer Billing

Jul 25 2014 5:51pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

The throwback-y trailer for The Judge is quite deserving of both love and mockery, given that it has all the hallmarks of a '90s Oscar-bait drama, down to the billing, and I'm sure Vincent D'Onofrio is still smarting about it. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, here's how the actors are billed on-screen: Academy Award Nominee Robert Downey Jr., Academy Awa ...

Amy Adams Visits "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon"
Drop Dead Gorgeous was released 15 years ago this week, and we're celebrating by taking a time warp back to the movie's star-studded LA premiere in 1999. Sure, at the time, Drop Dead Gorgeous was a flop - it only earned $10.5 million and received a lot of nasty reviews - but it has become a cult favorite for many as the years have passed thanks to its dark humor and offbeat charm. (And let's not forget that it launched the career of Amy ...
