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."

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 Award Winner Robert Duvall, Academy Award Nominee Vera Far ...

The Drop Dead Gorgeous Premiere Will Give You So Much '90s Nostalgia

Jul 24 2014 3:42pm CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

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 Adams.) Keep scrolling to see your favor ...
