Here are the top 50 quotes by Amy Adams.
You’re nothing to me until you’re everything.
I always want to defeat supervillains – it’s just the chicken-and-broccoli diet that I’m not into.
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.
One of my least favorite things about being even remotely recognizable is that I’m not allowed to watch in the same way anymore. You try not to hide from the world because you want to still participate and still be inspired by what’s around you.
I think there are certain people that you’ll always want to impress no matter how much success you have.
I do believe that you don’t have to act like a man to be strong. You can still be feminine.
I still think I’m like the poor girl from Colorado who worked three jobs to buy a car. That’s still my mentality, so I’ll be walking down the street, and I forget what I do and who I am.
I think a lot of times we don’t pay enough attention to people with a positive attitude because we assume they are naive or stupid or unschooled.
That’s how I prepare for anything – I read whatever I can get my hands on, talk to people. I’m a bit of a nerd like that.
We’re only here briefly. And while I’m here I want to allow myself joy.
A man who’s powerful and strong yet is able to show tenderness and vulnerability, that’s really sexy.
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 have worked with some of the meanest people in the world. You can’t do anything to intimidate me.
When I died my hair red the first time, I felt as if it was what nature intended. I have been accused of being a bit of a spitfire, so in that way, I absolutely live up to the stereotype. The red hair suits my personality. I was a terrible blonde!
I’m lucky enough to get really interesting and diverse roles offered to me, and I just hope that that continues. I just want to keep expanding as an artist and really try new things.
Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body – meaning that it wasn’t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit. I was like, ‘Look, I can carry a baby! I’m gaining weight right, everything’s going well.’ And I’ve had that relationship ever since.
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’m really good at gymnastics, and that’s about it.
The illusion of perfection is an illusion anyway.
