Amy Adams Quotes On Character

How I work is I work from of very character-driven place. And I trust the writers.

I love accents – I wish I could find an accent for every one of my characters. It makes it so much easier when I don’t have to hear my own voice.

I don’t intentionally try to find the scripts with unattractive characters, but I think that if a character is described in a script as heart-stoppingly beautiful, and there’s nothing else said about her, it just doesn’t hold a lot of interest for me.

I was blonde most of my life and I had to dye my hair for a role. I couldn’t believe the difference when I went red. I just felt ‘wow, I’m home’. It’s great. You do something stupid when you’re blonde and you’re dumb. Do something stupid when you’re red and you’re a character

I like Cinderella – she has a good work ethic and she likes shoes.

Amy Adams Quotes On Film

Working with green screen, you really rely on the director in a way that you don’t on different types of films.

I think the kick to doing comedy is just to get in a film with really funny people and let them do their jobs. I find that in most comedies, I’m not the funny one, which works out great.

Amy Adams Quotes On High School

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.

I saw some musicals at dinner theaters where I grew up. But I didn’t go to a big theater to see one until probably after I graduated from high school when I took myself to see Tommy when it was on tour. I absolutely loved it.

In high school, I was so painfully self-aware that how I thought of myself was probably very different from what other people thought of me. I thought of myself as just painfully awkward and dorky. I had a lot of hair and was kind of weird. I sang a lot in the hallways.

Amy Adams Quotes On Muppet

I watched The Muppet Movie obsessively. I can still pretty much say a lot of the lines and do a pretty mean Fozzie Bear.

I'm like the luckiest girl

I’m like the luckiest girl in the world. I’ve gotten to be a princess, I’ve gotten to work with the Muppets. A lot of my childhood dreams about who I wanted to be when I was a grown-up, I at least get to play them in movies.

I'm one of seven kids.

I’m one of seven kids. That’ll keep your ego in check.

I was one of seven, and we took a lot of road trips – long road trips. And this was before iPhones and iPads and DVD players in cars. I remember how novel it was when I got my own Walkman so I could listen to music.

You know, I love traveling and I love being exposed to different cultures, but really it’s the people that I’ve met along the way, not the places I’ve been, that have opened my eyes.

I think there are certain people that you’ll always want to impress no matter how much success you have.
