Amy Adams Gets Booted from 'Today' Show Because She Didn't Want to Discuss the Sony Hack

Amy Adams was booted from The Today Show on Monday morning (December 22) because she didn’t want to discuss the Sony hack, sources confirm to JustJared.com.

The Big Eyes actress was in New York City this weekend to host Saturday Night Live and stayed in town for an extra day to make the morning show appearance to promote her movie.

Before heading to the studio, her team was informed that she would be asked about the Sony hack and then she was told again upon arrival. Amy asked the producer if they could avoid the subject, but they insisted that “Today is a news organization” and she was told no one can dictate their interviews, according to Deadline.

Amy let it go and prepared to answer the question during the interview, but right before she was set to go on air, the segment was pulled, effectively wasting her time.

While Amy‘s salary for the movie American Hustle was part of the leaked documents, she has no ties to the hacking scandal or the movie The Interview.

Amy‘s reps couldn’t be reached for comment at this time.

DO YOU THINK it is right to ask celebrities questions about the Sony hack?

    Horribly unprofessional of The Today Show. Amy is known to be one of the nicest stars in Hollywood and I find it suspect they tried to make her talk about the Sony Hack but not Bradley Cooper.

    Harvey Weinstein will be loving this publicity though lol!

    “…and stayed in town for an extra day to make the morning show appearance to promote her movie.”

    Give the woman a round of applause. She’s not only got class, and style, she’s the epitome of discretion.

    This says more about The Today Show than it does about her. What? Wrong move.

    Inside and out. A rarity in the business.

    Considering anyone has a right to decline any question, I find it unprofessional that the Today show is strong arming people into talking about anything they do not want to. Her salary is her business, it wasn’t for the world to know, I am sure she would love to be paid the same as that idiot Bradley Copper but she doesn’t run the studio. The celebrities that come on these news-light morning shows is a good part of why people tune in. Sure as sh&t not Matt Lauer

    She do have a right not to answer the question. Even I’m curious about her opinion on why she been paid less than Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper. The Today Show can change the question to what her holiday plans or what her favorite Christmas movie? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-wZfhsg63o

    She seems really lovely and has done some great performances but I think her petite and gentle voice/manner/etc keep her back sometimes. Even when play tough ladies I feel like she’s still that Junebug character under it all. It’s presence. She needs to learn boxing or practice being a b1tch or something.

    That editorial decision makes no sense. They cut her segment because she didn’t want to discuss the Sony hacking. Why should she be obligated to respond to an ongoing situation..Plus why would she help the hackers by discussing sensitive information that was leaked about her salary?? Perhaps they didn’t want to appear to be taking directions from their guest when it comes to what questions they can ask..but it was inappropriate for Today to want to put her on the spot.

    Poor Amy! It’s not her fault that she was paid less than Bradley Cooper that wasn’t even the main actor and is wayyy less talented than her.
    Still is Amy choice to answer or not something.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    She had a total of four minutes to talk up her new movie. These idiots wanted to waste that time discussing something she is not involved in nor has any inside knowledge of.

    Today are a bunch of swines.

    For the record…..The Today Show is NOT a news program and has not been for years. Their excuse is total b.u.l.l.s.h.i.t.

  • Jack Mack

    Jeese, she just did NBC right by maybe hosting their best show of the season and this is the way they pay her back! Jeers NBC…..Jeers!

  • Jack Mack

    Agree! 100%

  • suzybel

    They can ask anything they want. It’s up to the person being asked whether they want to answer or just say “no comment”. I think actors are asked a lot of questions on topics they are not qualified to answer, but they stab away at it anyway.

    Completely tasteless, the today show is a joke anyways. I wouldn’t watch the today show for reliable credible news if you paid me.
