Amy Adams on Getting in a Girl-Fight (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 17th 2010 4:05AM
Amy Adams on Getting in a Girl-FightAmy Adams is appearing in the new film 'The Fighter.' But while on 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, Thu., 11PM ET on E!), the actress revealed though that she may look prim-and-proper, she's gotten in a real-life fight as well. "Have you ever been in a physical fight with a girl?" Chelsea Handler asked. "Yes; yes, I have," Amy said. Then audience then went -- "WHOOOOOO!" -- as audiences so often seem to do when the topic of a "girl-fight" comes up.

But Amy's actual "cat fight" experience illustrated the dangers of confusing art and life. Just because you've seen fights in movies ... doesn't necessarily mean that you're qualified to have one in reality.

"She was really drunk and she wanted to drive," Amy said, while describing the girl she got in a fracas with. "[And] in the movies ... they slap people to get to them to be reasonable. So I slapped her across the face." But oddly enough, the girl didn't "sober up" after the slap. Instead, she attacked Amy.

Amy Adams Discusses Meeting the Woman She Plays in 'The Fighter' (VIDEO)

Amy Adams on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' talking about 'The Fighter'Amy Adams plays Charlene Fleming, the love interest of Boston boxer Mickey Ward, in the new film 'The Fighter,' which opens Friday. The movie is a biopic, and there's a real life Charlene Fleming, who Adams talked about meeting today on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' (Weekdays, Syndicated).

Adams met Fleming for the first time at the premiere for 'The Fighter,' and says she had to track her down to speak with her. "She's not someone who will step into the spotlight," said Adams.

The main concern Fleming addressed to Adams was related to her modesty, which the film apparently does not preserve. "She was very concerned about the lack of clothes that my character wears," said Adams. "She claimed she never wore that few clothes. She's a woman of few words, but she's awesome."

Stressing about the lack of clothes your likeness is wearing in a biopic is certainly an understandable concern. Unless of course, the person playing you in the film happens to be Amy Adams. In that case, we'd probably be okay with it.

Amy Adams Reveals How She'd Propose to Regis on 'Regis and Kelly' (VIDEO)

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Jan 8th 2010 9:43AM
Making the rounds for her new film 'Leap Year,' actress Amy Adams stopped by 'Live With Regis and Kelly' yesterday, where Regis immediately asked how she would propose to him. Put on the spot, Adams says that she wouldn't get down on one knee "for obvious reasons" (she's pregnant), then says, "I would probably say, 'Regis, I think it's about time,'" referencing her stomach.

Adams gives Regis one of her rings, which he eventually accepts, albeit not on his ring finger.

Regis Sets Jan. 4 Return Date

by Daniel Frankel, posted Dec 31st 2009 11:58AM
A morning show crisis has officially been averted.

Regis Philbin will return to his seat as co-host of 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' on Jan. 4, series distributor Disney-ABC Domestic Television announced Wednesday.

Philbin set off a minor panic in late November when he told his viewing audience that he was going in for hip surgery and would be back sometime "next year." The ambiguity of that timeline led some to speculate that the 78-year-old Philbin might have something more wrong with him than hip trouble.

Showtime is planning to adapt the indie film 'Sunshine Cleaning' into a series.

According to Variety, the story will be reworked in-house by Megan Holley, who also wrote the original screenplay.

The big screen version of 'Sunshine Cleaning' opened in March, and starred Amy Adams and Emily Blunt as sisters who launch an unlicensed crime scene cleanup service. The film, based on a 2001 news report from Seattle, received moderate praise from critics, and was nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.

Julia and Meryl's Julia

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 7th 2009 1:23PM
Julie and Julia opens today, so I thought it would be fun to compare the real Julia Child with Meryl Streep's movie version. Below are two videos. The first is the real Julia Child making an omelet on her show The French Chef, and the second is a clip from the movie.

Child had a deeper voice than most impersonators would have you believe, but it looks like Streep does a good job.

Saturday Night Live: Amy Adams/Vampire Weekend - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Mar 9th 2008 11:58AM
Amy Adams(S33E07) I was really hoping that this night would redeem Saturday Night Live from the crappiness of Ellen Page's episode, but, boy, was I disappointed. Usually, when an episode is weak, I just shrug it off, write a post about it, and move on. This time, I actually felt a bit of regret when it was over. "I totally could have been using that time to clean my room," I thought. Obviously, I wasn't particularly fond of this one.

I haven't seen Amy Adams in much apart from Talladega Nights and Enchanted and, even though both of these films left me feeling like I could have been using the time to clean my room, I was all right with Adams. Unfortunately, she looked super nervous throughout the episode and sped through her lines so quickly that she would sometimes use really bizarre inflection.

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 15th 2008 4:41PM
Kristin ChenowethThe buzz about ABC's Oscar broadcast is starting in earnest, and yesterday it was announced that Kristin Chenoweth, the adorable Olive Snook on Pushing Daisies, has been tapped to sing one of the Academy Award nominated songs, "That's How You Know" from the film Enchanted, according to the Baltimore Sun. Kristin will be joined by Marlon Saunders, who played the Central Park Calypso singer in the movie. By the by, Enchanted's star, Amy Adams, will also be singing on the show. She's doing, "Happy Working Song," another nominated song from the Disney hit. FYI, that's the sing-along tune she did in the film with cockroaches, rats and other happy vermin. You can just imagine Walt Disney spinning in his grave, can't you?
