42 year-old Amy Adams recently opened up in an interview about the blonde hair stigma and how her career has changed since opting for a red do:

On going from blonde to red and getting different roles:

Based on roles that I was getting, called in for, people were responding to certain types of characters with me as a blonde and the minute I went red, it was quirky and fun instead of flirtatious and dumb. It was great, I liked that. But in all seriousness, it’s just hair color. It was really fascinating to see just one element of yourself change people’s perception and that became a very powerful tool for me even in my acting. If you can change one very small thing and create an entirely different perception to the outside world based on one thing, and that was actually an important lesson for me to learn, I didn’t quite get that before then.

On how her life changed after she dropped the blonde hair stigma:

It really changed things up. People began to see me in a different way, for different roles. I don’t know if I can give credit to just the hair color, but maybe it did help people see me past blonde.

AA4 - Amy Adams Talks Weight & Bikini Bodies

From Allure Magazine:

Adams describes her Lois Lane as “a little chubby” around the middle. “That’s all right. She flies around the world eating whatever’s available,” she says. (When asked whether she could really be described as chubby, Adams quickly responds, “No, I’m sorry I said that.”)

Does she worry about her own weight? Holding herself to Hollywood’s unrealistic standards is a hard habit to break, Adams says, but she’s trying, both for herself and for her daughter. “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. Do you know, the people I love as actresses, I’ve never, ever sought out pictures of them to see what they look like in a swimsuit.”
