Amy Adams is currently making the promotional rounds for her fourth, yes fourth, Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in "The Master," but with Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" flying into theaters this summer our favorite ginger's got Lois Lane on the brain.
She took her cuteness to "The Tonight Show" last night and paid a little sing-song homage to the woman who owned the role back when Adams was still in preschool — Margot Kidder — by belting out the tune which Kidder was supposed to sing in "Superman" but which was ultimately cut by director Richard Donner in place of voiceover, Maureen McGovern's "Can You Read My Mind?"
Talk about being one with the nerdy details!
"I really wanted to be Lois because I thought Superman was just awesome," she gushed. "I didn't think I was going to be an actress playing Lois, I just wanted to be Lois."
Despite her early adulation for the iconic leading lady, though, even Adams could admit that the whole thing where Clark Kent takes off his glasses and puts on a cape and suddenly no one recognizes him was a tad contrived. "It's so funny because I always loved how smart she was and then as an adult I'm like how smart was she actually that she didn't notice that." How smart indeed. Perhaps Snyder and Adams' variation will improve upon that concept.
One thing Adams is sure of, though, is the upcoming fan reception of Henry Cavill as the blue, red and yellow-clad hero. "I'm so excited, you guys are going to love it. Henry's amazing," she asserted.
"Man of Steel" hits theaters on June 14.
