Could Amy Adams snag her sixth Oscar nomination in 2015? Amy is getting a lot of buzz for her role in Blue Eyes, in which she plays real-life artist Margaret Keane, whose husband took credit for all the gorgeous paintings she created of young children until she sued him. In this exclusive interview with OK!, Amy talks about her own artistic side, her young daughter, and more.
OK! News: 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Amy Adams
Amy and her fiance, Darren Le Gallo, are parents to four-year-old Aviana.
Has having a little girl made Amy anymore artistic and more ready to play this new role of artist on-screen? “I’m good at arts and crafts and also sewing, as I’ve discovered while repairing my daughter’s clothes,” Amy tells OK!.
Amy also opened up about how becoming a mother has changed her life as an actress.
“I try not to take my characters home with me,” Amy told the mag. “I don’t want to confuse Aviana by being any different from how Mommy usually behaves.”
She continues, "I enjoy having friends outside the industry. It’s important to not get trapped in a celebrity bubble."
Amy’s also spoken previously about balancing motherhood with her career. “I have to trust that I can prioritize my family and myself while still finding the energy and focus for my work,” Amy told InStyle in 2011.
But when it comes to being a mom, Amy doesn’t take herself too seriously. “I’m definitely not one of those women who make it look easy. I’m always running late — and look, there’s guacamole on my purse,” she also told the mag.
But perhaps the cutest thing Amy’s ever said about Aviana was at the 2014 Golden Globes when the little girl got a shout out in her mom’s acceptance speech. “My daughter Aviana who’s not old enough to understand this—but I love you so much… thank you for teaching me to accept joy and let go of fear,” Amy said tearfully when accepting the Best Actress in a Motion Picture statue for American Hustle. Aw!
