Amy Adams admits:
“I’ve always felt more comfortable [with comedy] because I was scared of drama.
“I didn’t really know how to access my emotional side without wounding my own person.
“Once I learned how to do that it opened up all these doors to me and I realized, You know what? Real life contains moments of laughter followed by uncontrollable sobbing.
“I think tackling certain characters has definitely helped me in my life because I can’t come to the truth about a character when I’m lying to myself.
“As a result it forces you to look at things and sometimes it is painful and you don’t want to deal with it.”
