Amy Adams vs Jennifer Lawrence
The Oscar-winning actress spoke at length about her career for the ongoing Hollywood Masters interview series held at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & TV in Los Angeles.
Five months before the much-anticipated release of Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, one of its stars, Amy Adams, says is still waiting to see the movie, in which she returns to the role of Lois Lane that she played in 2013’s Man of Steel.
“I haven’t seen anything of it, except what everybody’s seen,” she said on Oct. 14. Speaking of the effects-heavy movies, she added: “They’re kind of hard “They’re over the course of six months, so it’s a lot of time dedication, but really, really fun.”
Asked to describe her favorite moment, she continued: “I can’t give too much away, but I’m coming into a scene and Batman.
Adams, a five-time Oscar nominee, was taking part in the ongoing Hollywood Masters interview series held at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & TV in Los Angeles. While there, she spoke about the need to avoid perfectionism and comparing oneself to others.
“I have tried being perfect; it doesn’t work, and it’s very frustrating,” she said. “But you do get inundated with, ‘Be perfect on the red carpet,’ and then you also have to show up on time, and you have all of these expectations that, the way that it’s projected to us, are not expected from the male counterpart. You just can’t do any comparison, just run your own race. Don’t compare yourself to what men are getting or not getting, or what that girl’s getting or what she looks like; just run your own race. Put your blinders on. You’re not racing against anybody but yourself. I guess that’s the more finite way to answer that question: only race against yourself.”
