Adams recently admitted that she tried out for the role on two separate occasions in the past, and had no problems playing second fiddle to Henry Cavill’s Superman.
The actress told Allure, for which she was on the front cover, “I’ve wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance – as some mere mortal.”
She went on to add, “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.”
Adams went on to add, “I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blond lashes. You could just paint my face – it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.”
However, Adams revealed that her daughter doesn’t approve of her wearing makeup, as she associates it with her working.
She added, “I wear makeup when I work, so my daughter [Avianna, 3] associates makeup with work and the other day she asked me not to wear makeup at home. So if you see any rally unflattering paparazzi shots, I’m doing it for my daughter.”
Adams isn’t afraid to point our her own flaws, proclaiming herself a “tomboy” and stating that “perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting.”
She then added, “Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. 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.”
