"amy adams" Discussed on WLS-AM 890

"You see for our entertainment critics, the only movies that are worthy of being made our movies where America sucks. And America's sucky nous and on Lee be cured by either some sort of woke cultural moment or by massive government interventionism. Alison Woman from New York magazine says the film is like a package of assorted chicken parts that can be assembled back into something approximating the shape of an actual animal. There's way too much of some stuff while certain essentials are missing entirely. Now, let me just point out that if the movie and hewed closer to the book If it included all of the cultural commentary about the evils of the welfare state and about the failures of government to fill in for church and schools and local institutions. The critics would hate it even more. Instead, they like movies again. They're really about how America sucks, and the only way that these rural people Can do better is by escaping their roots, leaving them behind and becoming members of left or where everybody in these towns treated not with any sort of sympathy but simply with malevolence like box recommended the watch winter's bone instead, which is a very cynical take on people who live outside America's major cities. So how exactly have some of the people from Hollywood in the film reacted to the negative criticism? Well, many of them around even defending the film. So Amy Adams said. I would never presume to say what critics should or shouldn't do. Everybody has a voice and can use it how they choose to use it. Let me just say if somebody had criticized any other Amy Adams from this way, should probably suggest That the critics had an inherent bias. But nobody will ever say that in Hollywood, because, of course, a lot of people who signed up for this thing didn't think it was political. Ron Howard obviously didn't think was political. And he said, I do feel like they're looking at political thematics they may or may not disagree with that, honestly, are not really reflected or not front and center of the story, And that's kind of right. So Ron Howard kind of strain the movie kind of stripped all of the politics from the story. Because Ron Howard it sort of just a good Democrat, and he sees it as an uplifting story and not just an uplifting story, but a good commentary on how you can make the decisions which last I checked, he used to be something that liberals shared with conservatives. But we move beyond that. We'll get right back into the special best of episode of the Ben Shapiro Show. But first the historical docuseries Apollo 11. What we saw is available exclusively at daily wire dot com. This is the coolest thing. It is an amazing amazing A docuseries was originally released. Is an audio podcast for Apple on Spotify. What we saw is now available to watch as well as listen on the daily wire, Apple TV or Roco app or a daily? Where'd that come? The Docuseries takes a detailed look at the Apollo 11 mission to land a man on the moon. Probably greatest achievement in history of mankind was the culmination of a heated decades long space race between Cold War rivals, the United States and the USSR. The podcast explores one of America's greatest accomplishments through the eyes of the millions of Americans who lived through it..

What 'Arrival' Gets Right — and Wrong — About Linguistics

"Jessica con was a teenager when she first learned that linguistics is a thing. She stumbled upon story of Your Life, a science fiction novella by Ted Chiang. It's all about linguist- trying to figure out how to communicate with well aliens I. Think it was actually probably the first time I heard about the field of linguistics. And then I started college the year I saw an introduction to linguistics curson signed up for it. These days Jessica's field linguist at McGill University in particular I work on. Syntax. Basically the way words combine to make sentences in a few years ago. She got an email to be a consultant on a movie, a movie that was coincidentally based on the exact novella she read as a teenager. I'm not trying to draw any connections that aren't there, but you read about linguistics for the first time in a book that became a movie that you became the the person they consulted with. It's amazing right? It's pretty wild I mean when I first got the email that asks me to work on this film I was really ready to push spam because it sounded very strange and then at some point I saw the story of your life and I wait a minute I haven't thought about that in years and then I responded That Film Twenty Sixteen Sifi hit a rival. So real quick. In case you haven't seen it. Here's the gist. This is Davy arrived. All of a sudden twelve spaceships land all over earth trouble saying. And we don't know why they're not doing anything after landing there. Still no signs of first contact or just the sitting there are at least and so governments around the world are panicking trying to figure out why are these alien spaceship sitting here and different teams are going into try to understand why they're here what they want. And we are following one of these spaceships that I think is somewhere in Wyoming and the. Amy Adams who is a linguist? Production. And her job is to decipher the alien language and figuring out what they want. So today in the show another installment of the Shortwave Science Movie Club what the movie arrival got wrong about linguistics what it got. and. Whether or not Field Linguists Jessica coon has actually communicated with aliens. Honestly it's a tossup. I mattie Safai you're listening to shortwave NPR's Daily Science podcast. So Jessica you were the linguist who consulted on the movie arrival. So give me a big picture sense of what that means like. What did they actually have you do? Yeah. So the first thing I did was I got to read drafts of the screenplay which was really fun because it's a very common thing to do and academia we read things and we give feedback on them but usually not this fund of a scale committee meeting ever exactly yeah. It was very funds so I got to read the screenplay and they especially wanted. Feedback on how linguistics and linguists were represented in the film. So there were lots of places where I gave feedback and they incorporated it into the film. There were other places where they would say, okay just, Kinda yes. Yes. Thanks for your help but really in the end linguists are not Hollywood's primary audience and we're not going to get everything right here and now linguists just get to join like all the other fields of people who get really annoyed when science misrepresented onscreen. So welcome to the club. Sorry, we're not GONNA change that. The movie makers also put Jessica through some exercises, basically giving her a whiteboard and asking her would you do if aliens showed up and those exercises actually informed one of the most famous scenes in the movie when the main character we spanks played by Amy Adams. Schools the guy in charge of the mission about the fundamentals of linguistics. He asks her for a list of vocab words. Essentially, the keywords she was planning on teaching the aliens, that day. Cavaliers responding. Lock. help you understand. So Amy. Adams walks over to the whiteboard and scribbles what is your purpose on earth? This is where you want to get to. The question. Okay. So first, we need to make sure that they understand what a questions. The nature of A. Request for information along with the response then. We need to clarify the difference between a specific you. And a collective you because we don't want to know why Joe Alien is here we want to know why they all landed. In purpose requires an understanding of intent we need to find out. Do they make conscious choices or is their motivation? So instinctive that they don't understand a why question at all and and biggest of all, we need to have enough vocabulary with them that we understand their answer. I love that scene Yes that is one of the great triumphs of of linguistics in the film. I mean this was. So this was one of the most interesting parts of the movie for me because I'm you know this idea of building a base for understanding of a new language is like really interesting and and like the first steps in trying to communicate, which is you know like your thing right? So but it's something that I think we. Just, don't think about into see it in kind of in practice was so fascinating and I'm glad to hear it was like pretty well done your eyes question Mark Yeah I. Think I. Think it was really well done. I. Mean I think one thing that is really neat about this movie and what makes it such? You know interesting and intellectual Sifi is. They're not just typical humanoid creatures. We don't already have some kind of magical universal translator in place, and so we have to figure out how how do they even communicate and will we be able to communicate with them given how advanced they are that they've made these spaceships have arrived on earth I, think it's safe to assume that they have some advanced form of. Communication and that that form of communication should have patterns in it that we could eventually decipher. But thinking about you know, is it audible or is it written or could creatures communicate with smells or we just have no idea what could be out there if it's audible is in a sound frequency that human

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

05:19 min | 2 years ago

Emmy nomination voting underway

"KCRW sponsors include Netflix, presenting the original series, when they see us from Asia Duve Rene based on the true story of five teens who are falsely accused of a brutal attack in central park. Emmy eligible in all categories. I'm Kim masters. And this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt felony of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt EMMY voting is open. And, you know, there's always a lot of second guessing and campaigning, and it's all good this year. However, we're seeing the end of game of thrones. And that is a, a huge potential category killer in the best drama category. And for that reason we have seen other series that do might have been competitive kind of stay out of the way the eligibility for the Emmys ends at the end of may. So you often will see a lot of shows premiering in may just so that they can get into that window to be eligible this year. We saw the opposite in that best drama series category. The Handmaid's tale is premiering in June and stranger things. Netflix is premiering in July. And those were two shows that typically would be in the EMMY race Handmaid's tale, obviously was the first streaming series to ever win. In the drama series. Emmy category this year. They're both steering clear of game of thrones. Because the expectation is that game of thrones is just going to run the category and win and went out. I mean it would be the you know job well done award. However, you know, I I'm going to confess that I not a person who watched game of thrones. But I do watch my Twitter feed and mandate. I see blowback about the way that series ended. Yeah, I think there was a lot of negativity. And I think people were surprised by who ended up on that iron throne, but I don't think ultimately voters will care about the negativity. I think that this is a game changing mammoth moment in television. People say, we will never see a show again. Like EMA thrones. I, I don't know if that's true, but voters are going to without in my opinion voters are going to go for the show and, and give it the, the this year, I wonder if it had been vulnerable. Maybe the strategy was bad. You go ahead and compete against it, but who could afford? Seen that potential vulnerability. Meanwhile, you know there's the limited series category. That is very competitive when we see HBO rolling out Chernobyl net flicks, rolling out the central park, five drama series from ABC Vernay, when they see us, and they are coming up with kind of, you know, interesting claims to bolster the profile of how popular how highly rated, you know, the metrics may not stand up to too much scrutiny. But this is the game that is played. I'm always very skeptical of anything that Netflix says because they do not have any third party verification for their ratings claims but they claim that when they see us is the most popular show on net flicks every day since it debuted in the US, which would be pretty significant, considering that they have, you know, things like friends, and the office that are perpetual popular, and then HBO came out with this dubious thing that turnober was the highest rated show on HBO in its history. And they were using some IMDB ranking that purported to assess fans and critics. And I think people just kinda laughed at that big little lies. Maybe you know, I would say for sure that both of them are really well reviewed and very high impact, especially in the case of when they see us we'd seen Linda fairstein him roundly, the sex crimes in New York being hounded out of her foundation and. And other gigs. Now, the one of the prosecutors the this is have think people are finally seeing that what happened in that case through. I mean it's been the subject of documentaries. It's not news. But David Verna through the dramatization has really shown the kind of impact that entertainment can have in the real world. Yeah. And it really shows this category of limited series, and how much it's grown over the past few years. Remember, this is a category that the academy basically did away with combined it with made for TV movies, because there weren't as much of these being made as there used to be. Now there are so many limited series that this category is absolutely packed. If you look at just the Fossey Verron program on FX that got a lot of critical attention Showtime, made a lot of noise with escape Denham Maura HBO has turnober as you mentioned in sharp objects had Amy Adams and then true detective which is in this category, and is somewhat diminished from its heyday. But that, you know, had an amazing performance by. Marshall Ali in that. And that doesn't even include the George Clooney thing catch twenty two which got a lot of attention. So there's a ton of amazing limited series that are competing against each other. Yeah, I would say outstanding performance by Maharshtra Elliot's redundant at this point. Thank you, Matt, thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter he joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim masters. And this is the Hollywood breakdown KCRW sponsors include Showtime, presenting the comedy series kidding starring Jim Carey in what Rolling Stone says is the part, he was born to play more at S H, O dot com slash f y c.

I mean, even if e- if painful to watch or something like Schindler's less I think that one one year that was painful, but that was so moving and you were in it.

"It seems and you said until last year when you were honored at that film festival that the scene that actually made you want to do the movie was the one that was maybe the least Amy Adams associate like associated kind of character in which I guess there's no easy way to say this. But basically, she masturbate, sir. Husband in the scene that really was one that's old you on it. It wasn't. Let me clarify. This seems wrong. There's usually something in scripts something that happens something that the character. Does where I say, I know who she is. Now, I have to player it wasn't when she pleasure to husband. It was when she coolly reached over and wiped her hand on the towel. And then just walked out of the room. I was like, oh, oh, I know who she is. And now I want to be her. I felt like she was that particular description in the script I knew the whole story. Of her, you know, and I got excited. Yes. So it wasn't wasn't the chance to do. You know, 'cause that's fun. Right. That's not awkward at all. Sorry. Philip. And then how does Paul Anderson work as director in comparison to some of the other powerhouses that you've dealt with is he he's kind of quiet about his process. So I don't think that much is known about it. You know, I can't quite get it out of him. What is process in what? But he lets things play out he encourages that kind of intensity and that kind of connection he's not afraid to tell you when it sucks, which I love. He's like, wow. Yeah. Let's do that again. And he's become a dear friend of mine. He's always been one of my favorite directors like phantom thread. I was like we need to make this into a series. And I just wanna see those repeatable torture each other for over forever. It's because he allows there's something about the way that he. Direct somebody encourages and the way that he pushes you that takes you to a really cool place the next year after that was three, you know, I I don't know the order in which things were shop. I know when they come out. It's it's pretty unbelievable to have in one year American hustle back with David Russell her for spike Jones and your first time playing Lois lane. All in one year. Does seem like a lot. Let's start if we can with Merican hustle again with Christian bale second time. It sounds like it was a different experience than the than the fighter. You've said. It was not as well. And I think I was playing a very different character anything that kind of plays into that as well. But it was just it was a more heightened experience. I think the whole energy of the film is a more heightened experience. So I think, you know, we're we're, you know, sometimes people call actors method actors, I think David might be a method director where he takes on. Of the energy of the film, and that kind of goes into his directing style. So that's kind of what I attribute that to. Yeah. They're still to some degree or welcome to offer input about things. Like, I know that scene in this case, those talk a lot about was you and Jennifer Lawrence in the bathroom that was your input. That was. Yeah. Yeah. David really encourages input. He will say it takes longer to talk about it than to just do it. If you wanna go again, you don't have to ask permission just go like, so he'll keep it really loose, which is great. You know, it's so much fun, and so energetic and sometimes frustrating and sometimes like at one point in American hustle. I remember, Bradley, I was supposed to I don't think it made it in the film, and I'm supposed to hit him in the face with something. And then hit him with my hand. I was I don't like to hurt people. You know? That's not my well. That's not there sometimes but not other actors so Bradley do it just hit me hit me Davis. Go hit it hit him and him. Hit him. And I I hid him and his face swell up.

"I mean talk about really testing your confidence level because we went through a rehearsal process. And it was her psycho play. And here's Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Both of whom are powerhouses not only in film, but on stage, and I'm like, I did anything goes. Chen, dinner theaters. But I had to suck it up. But it was a great wonderful opportunity for an actor to get to watch those two in rehearsal. And then just get kind of come in every once in a while. I mean, I had my moments. I had a moment where I was supposed to yell at Maryland the rehearsal. It's this scene where she's Ikya blew my light out. And I couldn't I couldn't even get my voice had completely. I couldn't yell and John's let's take a break. And I was like, I don't know what to do John. I can't yell at her. I'm paralyzed. I feel like I don't know what to say. I don't want to do I and he goes you really leading this character get to you. And I realized instead of fighting that impulse that I felt with them that was exactly where I needed to be. So I started trusting my body's reactions to a character in that point for. So I was like, oh, actually I'm not supposed to be confident. I'm not supposed to be in charge. Here. I'm supposed to be the one in conflict. They're both certain. I'm in. Flint. And so I just let it play out, and I stopped trying to be Meryl Streep and I stopped trying to keep up with Philip Seymour Hoffman. And I never tried either of those two things ever again..

"And better and everything and yet it was three years between catch-me-if-you-can June bug. And from what I understand you were. That was scary. It's frustrating your protein your thirtieth birthday within that period. And you've said the way you described it was that you quote, choked close quote at dishes, and we're quote paralyzed by the idea of people paying attention to what I did close, quote now that had some idea of who you are. Yes. So looking back. How do you explain that? And how did you get out of that? I just had a crisis of confidence. I couldn't accept that. I belonged in that company. I couldn't accept that for myself. I didn't believe it. And I think when you lack it's not that I believe it. Now, I stopped worrying about where I belonged. And I just started focusing on the work. You know, I was too caught up. I think in being something or being somebody or achieving something or having made it, and I wasn't focusing on the work that I needed to and I stepped away from being anything and just went back to being an actress. And that's when everything clicked for me, like really changed in my mind, and in my work, and in the way, I approached it, and I've had moments along the way where I go through that again, where I feel like, oh, you're kind of your thinking about the wrong thing, you need to take a step back and return to work interesting. It's also, you know, the the role that people see as the breakout was June bug. And we'll just remind people was shot in like your scenes, I think eighteen days less than a million dollar budget. But another sort of very sweet Carter, but with depth that emerges in talkative pregnant woman. But when that came along before we all realize what it was. It was the less exciting of two projects in your life at the moment. Right. I mean, you had a TV series. I was I had been cast in a TV series opposite, Rob Lowe called doctor Vegas. And that was it was challenging because the director got let go of halfway through filming the pilot, and they colored my hair red. They brought in a really tall tanned, beautiful blonde. Who was sweet as we're still friends. But like, I kind of saw the writing on the wall. I'm like, oh, I'm not what they want. And I knew it. No one was saying it, but Rob Lowe talks about it in his book that I don't want to quote his book because they don't know the exact thing, but it was essentially, Amy Adams isn't sexy enough. Knew it. You know, I knew that's what they were feeling. So but to be fair I did go from playing his love interest playing June bug. They might have been onto something. But but you know, what? Someone. That's that's something that I focused on her that I think is my Nate energy. So I wasn't my feelings weren't hurt. It just was like, oh, I think I'm about to get fired which I essentially was and which sucks all the more. When you went into thinking, this could be the break out in a wit. I didn't know if it would be honestly, I I needed a job broke. Yeah. Saying that when you were on the set of June bug giving this great performance not knowing that anyone would ever even really see the movie you were very concerned about just literally paying rent. Yeah. I thought I was going to have to move out of LA. I was concerned talk about within happens. When the movie gets done you go back to work in trying to stay above water. A few months later, it goes to Sundance premiers goes over as well as it did your at that point thirty one which is older than most people are when they first become a star, right? For specially women in this business. And then what happens that's dance? It was amazing. It was. I remember, and we have a picture of it..

"And luckily at family pulled over and went to the next town got us, a tow truck and came back with the tow truck. So as I feel like I've been saved by people's goodwill, very often in my life. So I have a lot of a lot of karma there that I need to make up for. And it seems like pretty quickly you're working. Yeah. But it was in things that were the way you've described I'm trying to find the exact quote, but you are basically saying like a lot of the variations of the cheerleader kind of part or was that. There are types. I I tended to get Casten. But in probably I was most appropriate at that point. I was very green. I didn't know how to dishing actually blonde, right blonde, blonde. Anyway. Yeah. Yeah. That's kind of where I was at at that point sort of my cheerleader bitch face. And it was a lot of your actually closest to my personality. Sorry, my husband's laughing. He's actually he's not laughing you everything. That's right. A lot of WB guest starring hearts a TV series. That was then re cut into cruel intentions two. It was because it wasn't flying as TV series, right? It was at the time to risque they thought which is so funny ten years later gossip like, oh my God. That makes us look like, you know, Saturday morning television on ABC family. I guess we're talking a few years before catch me if you can. But what was interesting I did not realize that until I started to dig into this again, you I went out for that before the director was Spielberg. Right. Wasn't there? Another director. There was another director the first time. It was gorge been ski was I I think so. But like how did that come together that that would be the first one where people really noticed you, my I I remember it very clearly because my original addition date was. Timber. Eleventh two thousand one two that's kind of always in my head. And I think there are certain things in my life that have created moments fearlessness. And I think when the dish in got rescheduled I felt like I had to just throw caution to the wind because you know, life is short. We were all living in fear at that moment. And so I just wanted to step outside of like, I had a different perspective in that addition that I'd ever had. And I was able to just focus on the character and showed that time when it was rescheduled at that time was now spillover the the first schedule is spill as well. I approach before it was Spielberg. Well, when you're starting out, you aren't really approached. You're kind of given us your you're given sides and saying like, maybe we can get you in on this. You know, you're not really approached. And I wasn't approached on this either. It was really just they were reading a bunch of girls. Isla Fisher was that the first time I met people than ever after we saw was not funny. But yeah, I remember I remember that very clearly that dishing. So once you get the part, that's gotta feel like a big deal. You're on the set with Spielberg and Leonardo DiCaprio you've got. Let's remind people braces, your character has sales really cemented that early idea of you know, the innocent character right that for for a while. We're quite out into the innocence. The thing. There was your character is supposed to burst out crying. And that was not. I can't imagine for anybody. That's an easy thing to do. Right. Maybe for some people tend to burst out crying on on. No, it was there was a I was very nervous on that set. But I was like I was so into Brenda that I just stayed in character most of the time, and it was I know what you're speaking of. It's the moment where I it's not in the final film 'cause my character cries alive. If you can, but I was supposed to sort of like tier spring to the is kind of thing, which really isn't my talent and spill walked over. And he said, you know, you're acting from here any pointed to my head, and he said you need to act from here, which was your heart. And that's something. I still what I'm struggling. I try to take it from my head to my heart. She'll movie comes out gets widely seen the expectation is that this is going to launch a thousand more great, you know, roles that'll be bigger.

"And so I know that people had had parts, but they were looking for girls to play locals in a beauty pageant and a film called trumpet, gorgeous. Yeah. And was it just like one of these kind of what they've called lake caddo calls. We're just the whole world shows up. Yeah. So did you do for a laugh? No. I did it 'cause ski no you when you had an opportunity to dish in for anything. You you went on it. I just for commercials and industrials, and like strange hair shows, you know, or you're like model like I was five foot force never gonna get a modeling job. But they send you on everything. And so you go, you know, any opportunity is is a great opportunity. This one pans out. You get the part I got part. Yeah. Film role. I guess it sounds like one of the people who is important that you met on. That was the alley. Yeah. What was that about? I was the simple is I I didn't know anything about filmmaking or how to work on camera, and I would sit behind the sound cart. We had a lot of downtime, and I would watch everybody work, and sort of look at their different ways of the way that the camera you start wide and then meeting, I didn't know anything. So I had a quick education on that. And I went to her kind of became bold and said, hey, I was thinking of either moving to New York or LA. Do you have any advice, and she said, oh, you should come to LA your funny in their hiring young people right now during something called you? Remember, the youth quake it was called. I think I don't know is this is just around went. Turn of the century nineteen ninety nine. She said you should come to LA, you'll work. I had to make a decision between New York in L A. And I I was injured. So she'll dazzling wasn't gonna help him. Not for a while. Yeah. How'd you previously aside from drop dead gorgeous kinda just having because you were in Minnesota and the opportunity came around, but was screen acting particularly you wanted to do I guess if I searched my soul wanted to do it. But I didn't have the type of belief in myself. I thought that I said it before I thought only movie stars acted in movies, and I wasn't a movie star. So I couldn't wrap my head around that I could work in the film industry. That's where special people when people who had it. And I never saw myself like that. So, but once I started looking at it the same way looked at theater, which is focusing on your craft and studying taking classes, and I became kind of obsessed once I got here and jetting out area now. So it's union, brother. I saved up all my money. From java. Gorgeous, put it in the Bank. Yeah. And then drove that go not well. We broke down in Las Vegas and not less Fikus, Nevada. We broke down in Las Vegas, New Mexico. And with all of his belongings. I had shipped mine on Amtrak bulk which they do by the way. So I kept my belongings out here, and we were on the side of the road, and this was before cellphones. And neither of us knew what to do..

"So that was not going to work, and then a friend of mine called from Colorado and said, I got a paying job, and this, you know, community theatre is doing production of Annie, and I have to leave them, and they need to find somebody who can dance on point who can tap dance who can sing and who can say a couple of lines. Would you be willing to come back and do it? And so that was sort of. Of how I found that path and that was for both Colorado. And then later, Minnesota, what was once a pretty popular form of acting performing? But his not that widely around anymore, but dinner theater, right? Yes. So can you explain for somebody listening doesn't know what that is? You know for somebody who then didn't go to drama school. I think it was in a way you're training ground trying to your own absolutely dinner theater. The ideas is that it's like a you can bring the whole family, y'all sit at a table you eat dinner. And then you see a show. So you kind of get a good value. You know, you get the show and dinner in the same spot can't. But we put on some amazing productions like I've gone back, and they're quite impressive. You know in a lot of the people who performed Bolton Colorado with me and Minnesota had performed on Broadway or in tours. So and just decided they liked the lifestyle of living in Minnesota and wanted to raise families. So they were very talented and. It's a training ground not only in your craft, but in work ethic, and it's a great place to start. And for anyone who doubts that even movie stars have humble beginnings. What was the job in Atlanta? The first job in Atlanta. Wasn't it the gap? No talking about. It was in Colorado wasn't costs. Everybody so fascinated with hooters hooters. It's literally become a funny thing is nobody would have even known. But I remember on my first movie, there's a producer named Gavin. Dammit. Who found out who we were talking about the oddest jobs while I was eating like crab legs at lunch, which now I mean like with fake nails. We don't need. It was a mess. So we're eating crab legs. He's like what's the weirdest job? All you, Minnesota girls I've ever had. And I was like I worked at hooters once then he told everybody he told Conan O'Brien, then the first time I was on Conan O'Brien. He brought up that I worked at hooters. And now it is literally like McCabe brought it up in San Francisco. I gave him permission. Yeah. Tom Hanks brought it up cinema TEK. I'm like three months, three months. It doesn't. Honestly, I I have no problem with it. It just makes me laugh because there's so many elements to person's life. Let's great thing to teach kids because it's like three months in orange shorts. And you have to talk about it a forever. And this was before social media. It was a really good job. Because at the time minimum wage was three dollars eighty five cents, and they were willing to pay seven dollars to the. Hostesses and that for me like saving up for a car and being a dancer like Iran around in tights Leotard all day long anyway. But I learned there was a difference between dance class in Hooter's very quickly while you were still in Minnesota doing dinner theater, you hear about a local casting for film, which is not that common. Probably Minnesota right at the time. There were all there were films that kind of came in and out..

What she has managed to break into different phases. Thanks, the imagination of directors including David Russell, Paul, Tom, Sanderson, spike Jones. Tim Burton and Denise Villneuve how she has managed to.

No because it's kind of a rare opportunity to drop a fact like this the first time, I did a long form interview with you like this. I looked it up was thirteen years ago and three days ago. I was in a dorm room at Brandeis university had started a website about the Oscar stuff you were. It was the beginning of people starting to have sort of awards interest in you for June bug, and I listened back to it. And I mentioned to you a few weeks ago. I think in San Francisco that the weirdest part about it was that at that time. I still trust that I'm db as a primary source and my first question to you based on IMDB was I understand that your real name is not Amy Adams. And there was this long pause. And you were very nice about. And you said it's not. Because I am I think it was like a mad at Jessica out of their something. But I learned that lesson and I also have loved following the last thirteen years. So thank you for giving me a second chance to get it. Right. This time on this one. We really started the beginning. So I want to just ask you where you were born and raised in what your folks that limit. I was born in Vicenza Italy raised primarily in Colorado. My dad was in the army that's the overseas birth, and when he came out of the service worked in hospitals managing medical units. And my mother is sort of like the Queen of the odd job she sort of now settled into being a masseuse bet she has done everything from deliver newspapers to coach gymnastics to bodybuild, she's very transient in our career choices..

And he gives his actress really fun stuff to do. I can't wait for you to see this movie to see this one scene between Amy Adams and Christian bale, which is like this so many moments in the script that just like are like, wow, you don't see movies have fun with themselves like this. And there's this one scene where it's it's very very cool and gives actors of really cool opportunity, and it's like a it's like a it's like knowing subversion. But it's so funny that and it's so truthful in real, and I mean, there's also some.

"To have lived during nine eleven and remember it and remember seeing him on the news those years. It's extremely entertaining. Made the lighter. But I see why people under thirty five would not be interested because I think it got mixed reviews. Yes.

But then after this when I was my My dad. dad would. Yeah. See some movie about Nixon and my dad's into it. But because I didn't live it. I just didn't get it.

Sharp objects enough, you Clarkson is amazing. She deserved that win. She and I can see she she could probably she'd probably get a little bit of like a kooky one. And in the pressroom. She was talking about. I was to mention something about being superstitious. And I was like, oh, I totally believe that. And I had asked her to my, okay. You said you say, you're superstitious. Did you have any kind of good luck rituals news? You'd have a good answer for me. I could feel it. And she's like, oh, let me just tell you. She's like I would not let anyone mentioned the word win. Oh, what if you an inch like, no, no? That's it turn around three times spit. She said that was what she made everyone do that one. That mentioned anything about the possibility of her winning head spin around three times. What do you think the majority of people do before they go because we've all seen the person? That's like I didn't expect to win and they don't have their notes together or their plan.

She didn't have any like gooey deserted, Amy Amy's Amy's, like, you know, what she's she's she's she made it a point say that she won't do anything differently.

"Let's get back to my interview with Adam McKay, he wrote and directed the new film vice which is about Dick Cheney and how he became one of the most powerful vice presidents in American history, it stars Christian bale is Cheney Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney and Sam Rockwell as George W Bush, so making vice was a very eventful period for you. You had a heart attack before the movie was finished. Thank goodness you survived and seemed to be in good shape. Now, what point of the movie were you in when you realize you're having a heart attack? We had just finished a filming. I think we'd raft for about a week. And it's that period where the editor is putting together the Iraq assembly of the movie Hank Corwin was working on its you kind of have this little week and a half two week break. And I just realized I was not in the best shape. I put on weight during the movie, I was foolish enough to continue smoking not a ton. But I was you know, about a half, a pack a day below half a pack a day, and it just I didn't feel good. My doctor was warning me. And I was working out with my trainer. And in the middle of my hands started tingling and my stomach felt queasy. We'll those aren't normally symptoms you think of with heart attack, usually think of pain in the chest and the arm. So I told my train hard on fine. I'm fine. I'm just tired. This is just weird and he left and his soon as he left. I remembered the heart attack seem shot with bail when he. Is running for congress in Wyoming in the late seventies and pale. It asked me said how do you want to do the heart attack? You want it to be a pain in the arm the chest. He goes, I could also do the queasy stomach. That's really common. And I remember ask him like, what do you mean? I've never heard that before queasy stomach, and he goes, oh, yeah. It's very common. And so that moment just flash back to me while I was sitting on the couch, and I went holy Lord. And I ran upstairs, and I just down for baby aspirin and called nine one one. And God bless nine one one within three minutes they were there, and they had me at the hospital another three minutes after that. And the doctor was like why did you take those baby aspirin like I think he knew usually the queasy stomach thing. People don't react to that one. And I said, oh, my lead actor in our movie told me that's how that's how hard attack works and. The doctor said because you acted so quickly. You have no damage to your heart, your heart. And then he said not only that you have an extra strong heart. So he said the only dumping you're doing is smoking. So he said if you stop smoking, there's no reason you shouldn't live to be one hundred years old. So I have stopped smoking. That is the good news. And and my heart is as good as new, but man, what a scary experience. So I called Christian bale week later. And I said either you or Dick Cheney just saved my life. And the craziest thing was they took me they call it a cath lab, which I had never heard of before the catheter lab, and they take you in there. And that's where your heart. Doctor comes in your cardiologists. And this was a guy named Dr Henry is one of the best in the world. Thank god. And they get to work on you. And they're you know, they're going to clear out that blockage. And they did and they were amazing, and then towards the end I was on drugs, obviously. And for some reason, I thought it was very important that everyone at the table. No that I just done a movie about Dick Cheney. And how how ironic this is that I'm on a table having a heart attack. And of course, no one cares. But I saw sort of mumbled it. I was like this is weird. I just said a movie about tick Cheney and everyone ignored me as they should have except one voice to my right. Just after beaches said the Cheney great American. That's not the point of your movie. You know, it's I in my mind, I was like I don't want to argue with this guy that these people just say my life..

"amy adams" Discussed on The Big Picture

"And not a lot of people have seen if Beale street to talk just generally in the world's jail, Amy Adams, of course, is very famous and has often nominated for supporting actress. And of course is number one. If she wins here, and she is more famous than Regina king. I think the on ramp to the Amy Adams campaign fully begins if Regina king. Wins. I think it kinda reshuffles the deck a little bit. You think Emma stone and Rachel by cancel each other out idea. There's also one cork I want to know, which is Regina king is also nominated for TV mini series. I really think there's a case where she wins and TV mini series and Amy Adams wins in this category. And then they're both still at the forefront of voters minds. That's true. I the Golden Globes does tend to simplify things they pick the most obvious. And I still think Regina king has one more critics awards and is a little bit more the captain obvious. Which is why I went with are also I just like four months be too. She's willing. This is a pretty strong category. Five really good nominees for an hour to the tens of fuck things up. This. This is a good race. Let's go to the best actor in a supporting role in any motion picture here are the nominees marshal. Ali green book. Timothy shallow may beautiful. Boy, Adam driver, black klansman, Richard E grant, can you ever forgive me and Sam Rockwell for vice this has become a curiouser and curiouser category. Would you agree? Yes. I don't quite know where to put my finger. I do want to say I don't think Timothy Shalam has any chance to win. I I watched this movie again. And I think that this is a really great performance. And I I'm kind of confused why there's not I thought it was going to happen. Here was they didn't take care of him last year for best actor, but it was his sort of his arrival moment, and then what they tend to do is. They were ward people yearly even young actors evenly for their for their big role. This was a good opportunity to to reward him. And you know Marshall, of course, is already one in this category, Adam driver oncoming, but I think he's probably going to be a best actor candidate for years to come Richard E grant, I get it. It's like it's time sort of for the with. No. And I fans and Rockwell won best actor last year. So this is a really weird category. And I feel like there could be a shallow may campaign if somebody actually put some effort towards it though that doesn't seem to be happening. Yeah degree. I didn't like the Xiaomei performance. Oh, tell me just shock. I felt it was really. Mannered and drama school instead of actual emotion. And I think that he was you could see him putting on the imagination cloak of it more than you could and call me by your name. And I think Shalam as very good. And I think he like Adam driver will also be best actor nominee for years and years to come. So this this to me seems like a courtesy nomination of we see you will. We'll get you next time. But I just didn't really respond to that moments as much as other people. I don't think that you're wrong in terms of placing Cam is kind of the next great actor and voting buddies really do like to do that. I think an nation suffices in this. And I think it seems more likely to me that there would be a Richard grant out of left field because the people really do like to use this category to crown latecomers as well. You know, people who never really got their shot. No, no. I think it's a really for Salam. And this performance isn't noisy enough. Yeah. I get that. I mean grant has really. Been working hard on the campaign trail. He's been giving interviews left. And right. He seems like a lovely man. I I can see that. There is a huge push on his part in the way that there is no push for shallow. May there's very not a very big push for driver. I think there there's accepting that they have no shot to win..

Well, and the statute will stay word is community. Outrage has one out the city council voted this morning to leave it at exchange place in perpetuity tonight.

Support for NPR comes from Annapurna pictures with vice starring Christian bale, Amy Adams, Steve corral Sam Rockwell in Tyler Perry. A behind the scenes look at American power based on a true story in theaters everywhere. Christmas day. From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang. And Mary Louise Kelley majority leader Mitch McConnell says he is distressed Nebraska Republican Vince asked calls it a sad day for America. And Chris Murphy, Connecticut Democrat describes it as a national security crisis. All senators all talking about the resignation of secretary of defense, Jim Mattis. I am joined now by another Senator Tim Kaine democrat of Virginia Cain sits on the Armed Services Committee, which will have to confirm whoever is nominated to succeed. Mattis Senator Kaine welcome. Could it be on the show? Thanks so much. I gather you're not happy about secretary Mattis impending departure either. No, look, I've been in public life for twenty five years. I'm an armed services member from a state. That's connected to the military. I have a son in the Marine Corps secretary Mattis has one of the best public servants. I've worked with in my career and his resignation, and especially the asserted reasons for the resignation should 'cause every American to be really really worried. Although was this inevitable Madison self in the resignation letter that I soon you're referring to there. He said the president deserves a Defense Secretary who shares his vision of the world, I think that's very diplomatically put. But if you look at the letter, basically, what secretary Mattis says is this that the two pillars of American security that are constant. And this is a guy who spent more than four decades providing security is a marine is one building strong alliances among democracies and second standing up. To thorough -tarian adversaries, and he basically said Mr President on these two values you and I disagree, and we've certainly seen in a president who undercuts allies at many opportunities using national security waivers to punish Canada and Europe, for example, and then cosies up to a thorough Teheran's such as Russia and and Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea. And that reason asserted by secretary Mattis is very very troubling. Have you talked to him if you talk to dramatically? I have not talked to him since the announcement. The announcement set off a firestorm now leave news, but ambassadors of European and other allies reaching out to Senator saying sort of what's going on announcements this week about Syrian Afghanistan, obviously, causing huge concerns among allies who were side by side with us. In those theaters. I mentioned it's your committee armed services that will have to vote on whoever is named to succeed him. Who would you like to see? You know, it's too early to say that there's a person that I'd like to see, but I want somebody who will be willing to stand up and speak truth to power one of the challenges. And this administration is those who do general McMaster, the national security advisor and secretary Mattis, they get pushed aside, but we need people who are experienced who will look the president in the eye and and speak truth. And if the president can handle it he can't handle it. But I don't want an enabler. There's been too many neighbors around this president and the first two years like bobbleheads saying yes to everything, and that's not what this country needs right now changing gears. We're speaking to you from Capitol Hill. Are you all making any progress on a voiding a government shutdown at stroke of midnight? Well, we had a bipartisan deal just two days ago passed the Senate unanimously with the blessing of the White House, but the president yesterday decided to do a one eighty and say he now if you can't get five billion hill shutdown government and punish eight hundred thousand plus federal employees. Who would not get as long as there's a shutdown? Yeah. I heard you on Sarah calling him the Grinch about to steal Christmas, which I will give you credit. It's a good line. But subsidies. Senator or else? Well, thousands of people who are going to have to work without being paid over the holidays. You're you're absolutely right. And that was what we did when we gave them a bipartisan deal less than forty eight hours ago that he agreed to I know. But here we are society afternoon. So what happens? Well, what's going on? Right now is the vice president, Jared, Kushner, and Mick Mulvaney. The new chief of staff were up talking to Senator Schumer, and we're seeing reports out of that meeting that there may be an announcement soon about a path forward possibly a deal. I understand those administration officials went over to talk to speaker Ryan. So this is very much kind of a work in progress right now, no reason to shut the government down. Absolutely. None just a few seconds left. But, but we're also hearing from Shimer's office, and they're saying that this deal would involve funding for border security, but not the wall would you vote for that? I voted for it many many times comprehensive immigration reform and twenty thirteen head border security money. We offered the president deal in February with border security money. He turned it down border security is something that we all support. All right. Thank you so much Senator. Alright thanks much Virginia. Democrat Tim Kaine and we are talking with other Republicans elsewhere on the show. I interview Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma supreme court Justice, Ruth, Bader Ginsburg had surgery today for early stage lung cancer the odds for a full recovery from the disease at that stage have dramatically improved in recent years.

Meghan Markle's family 'banned' from top reality TV shows

"Talking TV Talk. About eight should? Also, watch it we've got Alexander's Alvin? On from the. Decider decided common. Great great website the affair is coming to an end is that right Alex, what do you know about this that is correct we. Don't know ton of information is currently running a season. Four that ends about mid August but. Decided to end the show on their own terms they're gonna do one more season after. This season five? And then that's, it for the shell we don't necessarily know how. Many episodes or what's it going to be on this plane what is this I'm sorry the I've never Yeah it's been? A big hit for oh Oh Attorney is really. Love More attorneys, the actress in it right from turning west Ruth, Wilson and Josh Jackson aka pac- from Dawson's creek Say they're going to wrap it up after another season which is, a very, nice for the actors, very nice for fans of the show to habit, and on its own terms Over at HBO they've got a hit on their hands with this Amy Adams show sharp objects haven't seen it yet, here great things about it people were hoping, there'd be more but it looks like maybe one season an app for this Yeah one of our great writer editors Megan keys it's actually currently out at the TCI which at the, television, critics association tour where there's ton of panel's going. On so she has a lot of coverage going. Up about it and one. Thing that happened was Casey. Is the head of. HBO and the very first panel, came out and said Nope new season two for sharp objects You know it's it's, interesting when, you look. At that compared to save big little lies both of them were based on books nobody really expected to, be a second season of big little? Lies, because there's no other books beyond, that but. According to him all of the actors on big allies were super into doing more they really wanted to pursue it. So they ended up doing on the other hand sharp objects. Very dark it's really hard character for Amy Adams to play with story is going to be done after one season, so, no season two for the show This is a story? That I, read, the sporting Alex and I didn't clear it with you I don't know. If you're aware of it but I. I'd love your comment on it Megan Markle the new Princess there in England there's now been a ban. On British television saying, that her family you know she has an extended family with a. Half brother and a half sister. I happy and say beat up the half brother, it gets, it gets. A little crazy they say that no member of Meghan Markle's fat family is allowed to appear on a. British reality show did you hear this No I haven't heard about that they say that damaging to, the reputation, of the royals so they've put out an edict saying in America if. You wanna do that, because I think her half. Sister is up for some American reality. Show but they say as far as great British television is concerned they won't have it good for I. Mean listen that's okay Not everybody needs to be on a reality. Show right I think ultimately. There right get something that. Megan Markle do and she. Was getting into royalty is, that her tire life would. Change forever and ultimately it is, going, to change your family's forever, and, it's it's kind of, nice that the other. Folks well just, profit offset. And, drag you know potentially dragged. Her name through the mud as things off it happened. With reality show so I'm all for that I'm still watching big brother I don't care about Julie ten less moon Vizor anything and I just have, to say please if if you like, fun television maybe a, little violent but I love preacher. I love, it, love it That. Show is absolutely bananas. Insane and it's only got crazier I was talking. To? Some folks most recent episode? Which opened up a pretty much, opens up with about five to ten minutes it takes place in one room. And honestly they have some of the best staged fights. On television it's all mostly one take the camera just. Kind, of zips around the room, has four, different characters are fighting it's funny it's exciting I love. It and three words crazy. Betty Buckley I mean I'm. Telling you Betty Buckley for. Betas enough but he is, Madam Lansdale and she is. She is a main Maine woman, wow, she's really a great actor, I, didn't know she had, that inner that's excellent. Right I'm watching. For that Do this story for me Carlton chooses is one of the guys who I created. Lost and I know he did some work with net. Flicks on a, show called locking key that I don't really know too much about but there's been some news about it what do we need to know there yeah so this is actually based on one of my favorite. Comic books of all time it's, written by Joe hill Stephen. King's son the art is by fantastic artist named Gabriel Rodriguez at some dancing around development for a really long time there was. A initially going to be a series on, FOX they shot a pilot which if you can track. Down to spend tastic that never got, picked up then they were going to do a series of movie is. Those never, got picked. Up the shot another pilot for, Hulu. Which also. Didn't get, picked up and now finally after years networks, has officially picked it out with Caulton cues. And Joe hill working together as. Show. Runners for the show they're. Gonna do to ten episodes in skimpy. On at. Some. Point in the future And. In general pitch, for the, weird house up north has a bunch of magical keys that each do different things a family moves into the house and battles a dark entity who wants possession of all the keys sounds good Yes it's. Fantastic at a little bit of a little bit? Of a spoiler full disclosure I actually make, a small appearance in the book every. Really, yeah really so fingers crossed I'm going. To be on the. Show oh that's so exciting what are. They going to, have a lost reunion because I would like a reboot. Of loss so then they can finish it properly they they've talked about that quite, a bit Linda Lavin, collagen cues they've. Said, they. Are done.
