As usual, Amy Adams has once again graced the public with her class and charm.
On Sunday, the 41-year-old actress attended the premiere of one of the most anticipated films of the year–Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice— in which she, Ben Affleck, and Henry Cavill all star.
Each actor chose a sleek, dark, and dapper outfit, as Daily Mail reports.
“They each opted for darker, but elegant looks as they arrived at the legendary Radio City Music hall to launch the big-budget superhero flick. Ben, 43, must have channeled his character Bruce Wayne as he looked dapper in a black three-piece suit over a light blue dress shirt and navy tie. Amy, 41, upped the sex appeal at the gathering as she sported a very low-cut black number.”
Amy’s movie premieres on March 25, and in preparation for the film, Adams has been busy with press and interviews. One such interview with Parade yielded some deep insights from Adams into the character of Lois. The actress discussed how, in many ways, Lois is a kind of “Superwoman” and how Amy wants to be like Lane herself.
“Lois Lane was so outside of the world that I lived in. This idea of living in a metropolis and being an independent woman putting herself in peril for the truth was kind of awesome. Lois was groundbreaking. Today a female reporter isn’t a big deal; we don’t even think twice about a woman on the ground in Baghdad or in Syria. And hopefully we’ll keep moving forward. (Now we just need to get her paid the same as her male counterparts!)”
This comment really reveals Adams passions — both as a feminine, attractive, and successful actress and as a committed feminist who is serious about women’s rights.
Adams also discussed how Lois stands as a beacon of trust.
“The most powerful thing about Superman and Lois is trust,” she told Parade. “He trusts her because she gives him a place to be vulnerable. And she trusts him with her life. As a journalist, she wants to believe in hope and integrity, yet she’s become jaded; learning to take somebody at their word is new for her.”
Even though trusting is new for her, she learns to take a leap of faith and to believe in Superman’s “hope and integrity.”
“Superman represents hope and integrity, so he has reacquainted her with this optimistic side of herself. Lois’ job isn’t just about getting attention or awards. It really is about the pursuit of truth.”
Finally, Adams believes that Lois “humanizes” Superman. Yes, she challenges him in new ways all the time, but she also helps him to embrace and express certain weaknesses that make him more human.
“Physically, no one is Superman’s equal—but being equal doesn’t mean we have the same strengths. It’s like with my husband and me: His strengths lie in one place, and my strengths lie in another, and when we bring them together it makes us stronger. So it really humanizes Superman to put him in a relationship with a strong woman where he can show a weakness that feels very human. It makes him mortal in a way.”
Amy Adams is iconic in our society for her blend of feminine beauty and feminine strength. She knows what she wants and what she deserves, and she’s not afraid to speak out when she feels that her rights have been compromised. This was particularly evident in the way in which she spoke out against the reportedly “sadistic” treatment of the American Hustle actresses at the hands of their director, David O. Russell, according to The Inquisitr. Her passionate opinions on Lois Lane and Superman are just more proof of her strength, intellect, and prowess.
