Norman Jean Roy for Allure
Amy Adams is gorgeous enough to catch Superman’s eye in her role as Lois Lane in Man of Steel, but the star has superhuman powers of self-deprecation in real life.
“I’ve wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance — as some mere mortal,” she says in Allure‘s July issue. “Let’s be real here. I don’t look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn’t anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot.”
She goes on to joke about her refusal to adhere to Hollywood’s super-strict diets and exercise routines, saying, “I just don’t see the point. I’m just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, ‘OMG, look at Amy!’ I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want.”
