Here’s what the 38-year-old actress had to share:
On her looks: “Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting. 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.”
On being unrecognizable (despite 4 Oscar nominations, 3 Golden Globe nods, and one win): “I have no features without make-up. I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face—it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.”
On playing Lois Lane in Man of Steel: “I’ve wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance—as some mere mortal. Let’s be real here. I don’t look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn’t anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot.”
