On Thursday's Chelsea Lately, the actress, who plays Lois Lane in Man of Steel, opened up about her daughter Aviana's crush on her hunky costar.
"When she met him, she liked the look of the suit," Adams said. "So, um, when he turned around...she goosed him!"
Amy then reenacted her daughter's grabbing motion, adding jokingly, "You know what Henry said? 'Like mother, like daughter!'"
"He has a great sense of humor," she added.
But getting to costar with Mr. Cavill himself wasn't the only reason Adams was psyched to play Lois Lane. "I auditioned twice before," she said of the role, referring to both J.J. Abrams' unmade film and Superman Returns, but wasn't cast.
"So now you're like 'Haha!'" Chelsea Handler prodded.
But no, Adams was humble and unwilling to gloat about landing the big gig.
