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."

Best Actress Race, Still on for Julianne Moore? Still Alice

Sep 9 2014 10:17pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Everyone's talking about it: This year's two female acting categories are, at this admittedly early date, looking extremely thin. In the lead actress category, of what has already been screened, the one and only slam-dunk contender is Reese Witherspoon (Wild). Of what is still to come, Meryl Streep (Into the Woods) could get in, Amy Adams (Big Eyes) is always a possibility and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl ...

The Best Actress Race Without Julianne Moore

Sep 3 2014 10:55pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

What do you when your presumed frontrunner is no longer in the Oscar race? It’s been announced that Focus World will not give Maps to the Stars an Oscar run (what a shame) and thus, Julianne Moore will not be a contender. I personally think the role and her overdue status give her the stuff to drive it home to a win (think: Charlize Theron in Monster). I also think it’s premature to assume the Oscar voters are too soft to handle a movie like this. Most of them came of age during Ken Rus ...

Leonardo DiCaprio gave $100k to ALS & more superheros do the challenge

Aug 27 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I apologize for using a misleading photo of Anthony Mackie as a lead-in to this post. Leo has looked pretty rough lately. He’s enjoying too much of the good life. Leo has been sharing the wealth by donating $7 million to ocean conservation. Part of that money offsets his huge carbon footprint, but it’s better than nothing. Leo has also done the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He filmed his video from Lake Athabasca where he’s “learning about the Canadian tar sands.” Us says that Leo gave $100,000 t ...
