Amy Adams on Allure: I Don't Look Good in Lycra

Amy Adams, Allure Magazine Norman Jean Roy for Allure

Gracing the July cover of Allure, Amy Adams is absolutely breathtaking with her piercing blue eyes, ravishing red locks and porcelain complexion; but it's her genuine charm and down-to-earth zest that attracts us most. 

The fresh-faced beauty is no stranger to movie sets thanks to her undeniable talent, but that's not say that she thinks she's all that. 

"I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blond lashes," she explains to the glossy. "You could just paint my face—it's like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do."

Despite her obvious elegance and striking good looks, Adams continues to impress with her very un-Hollywood take on the industry's expectations of actresses. 

"Perfect isn't normal, nor is it interesting," she declares in the interview. "Some of these actresses or public personas who very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don't see the point."

And while that may be the case, she must be doing something right—after all, she was cast as Lois Lane in Man of Steel, the upcoming Superman blockbuster. "Let's be real here. I don't look 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."

Well, look at you now! Proof that a positive mindset can go a long way in Tinseltown. 

The July issue of Allure goes on sale June 25, 2013.
