Amy Adams has a new interview with the Boston Herald, to promote her new movie ‘Trouble with the Curve’, co-starring Clint Eastwood and Justin Timberlake. She talks about training, her sports skills, and being ‘coming from a family of jocks’.
She also talks about her character, saying, “I felt really exposed and vulnerable playing someone who was so similar to myself. But at the same time, it was a great opportunity to explore a father and daughter relationship. You don’t see that a lot in film, so I was happy to do that.”
I'm really good at gymnastics, and that's about it," the actress jokes. “So I worked with a baseball coach, which was very empowering for me because I've never been a girl that was very good at catching a ball, hitting a ball, anything like that."
She also adds that she comes from a family that’s always been interested in sports, saying, “I come from a family of jocks. I’ve always been very comfortable around athletics. I’ve just never been comfortable playing them. So it was really exciting to work with somebody who actually taught me that skill.”
Trouble with the Curve is currently in theaters, and is getting strong notices for Adams’ performance.
