Amy Adams not super enough to play hero

Jun 18 2013, 9:28am CDT | by

Amy Adams doesn't think she looks good enough in Lycra to play a superhero.

The 38-year-old actress stars as Lois Lane - the love interest of Superman's alter ego Clark Kent - in 'Man of Steel' and she is delighted she landed the role because she thinks it's her only chance of being in a comic book film as she's not got the body to wear a skin-tight costume.

Speaking in the new issue of Allure magazine, she said: "I've wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance - as some mere mortal. Let's be real here. I don't look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn't anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot."

Amy isn't interested in having a perfect body and is willing to accept her body for what it is, including the bits she doesn't like.

The 'Fighter' star - who has a three-year-old daughter Aviana with her fiancé Darren Le Gallo - is happy to leave the diet tips and beauty regime boasts to other actresses.

Amy - who stars with Henry Cavill in 'Man of Steel' - explained: "Perfect isn't normal, nor is it interesting. 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. I'm just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, 'OMG, look at Amy!' I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want."

Amy Adams in very low cut Gucci at the LACMA gala: cheap or lovely?

Nov 3 2014 6:00am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos from the LACMA gala honoring Quentin Tarantino and Barbara Kruger. There were so many big names there that we’ve split up the coverage between Kaiser, Bedhead and me. First off is Amy Adams in a very low cut gown that I’ll assume is Gucci as they sponsored the event. This reminds me of some of Amy’s fashion this past awards season, which was very low cut. At that point Amy said that she paying homage to her American Hustle character, but there’s no easy ...
