Amy Adams Meets Up with the Real Margaret Keane at 'Big Eyes' Special L.A Screening!

Amy Adams keeps it classy and sophisticated while attending a special Weinstein Company screening of her latest film Big Eyes held at The Ace Hotel on Tuesday (December 9) in Los Angeles.

The 40-year-old actress was joined at the event by writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, as well as her real-life counterpart, artist Margaret Keane.

“Meeting her, there was a strength I wasn’t expecting. She was very quiet, not one to speak of herself, but she very much likes the paintings,” Amy said about the first time meeting Margaret (via The Wrap). “When she sat down, she presented me with scrapbooks – but they weren’t scrapbooks of family pictures or clippings, they were scrapbooks of her paintings over the years. I really do believe she likes the work to speak for her. But she has a quiet strength, and a steely strength, and I wanted to get there with the character. Not every person who is strong is a big showboat about it.”

FYI: Amy is wearing a Dolce and Gabbana dress, Rupert Sanderson shoes, an EF collection ring, and Graziela Gems earrings.
