Amy Adams For W May 2009

Oscar nominated actress Amy Adams clearly knows how to work the red carpet. But she also knows how to give us that wow factor in her editorials.

I was blown away when I saw the May 2009 cover of W magazine, with Amy wearing Marc Jacobs. She always gives us really dynamic editorials, that brings out a side to her we have not yet seen on screen.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On being nominated for an Oscar: “I just was so reflective the whole evening on how I came to be sitting in that room. At one point my fiancé was like, ‘You feel distant.’ And I said, ‘I am! I can’t even talk to you!’ I was there at the Oscars thinking, ‘What if I never left the Gap?'”

On planning her upcoming wedding: “I have a reputation as a poor planner, so expectations are pretty low. When I have people to my house for dinner and tell them it’s casual, they think that means don’t wear high heels, but I mean, ‘You’ll be getting your own forks out of the drawer.'”

On looking young: “I ordered a glass of champagne on the plane today, and the flight attendant asked, ‘Are you old enough to drink?'” I was like, ‘I’m old enough to worry about being infertile, so yes!”

On trying to be cool in high school: “I’d hated school. The people were indifferent toward me, and that’s the worst thing in my mind. We were defined by the clothes we bought at the mall. If I didn’t get things on clearance, I wasn’t getting them. I would make fake Guess jeans by buying a cheaper brand with a triangle label and then cutting it off so you could still see the triangle outline. It’s so sad that I did that! But I really wanted to be one of those girls.”

The rest of her editorial was shot in a diner, which adds a very retro feel to the shoot which was captured by Craig McDean.

    I agree about the model type quality to her cover.

    I love her. She’s so cute. I was amused by her anecdotes of people thinking she’s way younger than she is. That happens a lot to me, too. It’s both flattering and kind of annoying at the same time. LOL

    The cover has a model rather than a celebrity quality to it. That’s why it’s so awesome. They shoot celebs in a different, more conservative way, which I hate. We need more covers like this.
