Amy Adams Admits Changing Her Hair Color To Red Influenced Her Acting Career
Amy Adams sits down to speak at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences screening for her latest film Arrival held at Museum of Modern Art Celeste Bartos Forum on Wednesday (November 9) in New York City.
That same day, the 42-year-old Oscar-nominated actress attended another panel at TimesTalks to discuss Arrival and Nocturnal Animals at the Merkin Concert Hall.
At TimesTalks, Amy revealed that changing her hair color to red dramatically influenced the chances of getting cast in certain films.
“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,” Amy revealed (via People).
“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,” Amy added. “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.”
