J-14 was so excited when we got the opportunity to interview Academy Award nominee Amy Adams! (You know her as Giselle from Enchanted!) Amy is starring in the new romantic comedy, Leap Year, which hits theaters today! We got all the deets from Amy about the flick including what it was like to film in Ireland, if Amy would ever propose to a man, and her cute costar Matthew Goode.
J-14: In Leap Year, your character does a crazy thing to fall in love and to get engaged -- what's the craziest thing you've ever done for love?
Amy Adams: Let me think... Most of the things that I've done have been sort of fruitless in my attempts to attract men. It's always worked better when I let them come to me. Every time I've chased there was a reason that they weren't coming to me. It never really worked out!
J-14: Would you ever propose to a man?
Amy: If it was the right relationship. I know for my fiancÃ©, he's from Texas so it's really important to him that he proposed. He's a little bit more traditional. We live in a time where there's all sorts of relationships and it's absolutely okay!
J-14: What was it like filming in Ireland?
Amy: The great thing about being in Ireland was that so much of the stuff we were actually on location in these amazing, ancient, Irish -- the castle we were in and the island and the cliffs. All of that would have been really hard to duplicate -- along with the weather, the people, and just the charm of the land. It really helped to inform the film.
J-14: Did you ever have to choose between two guys growing up?
Amy: Well, I was really popular in fifth grade. That was the height of my popularity. There were a couple guys who liked me that I could "go with." Which is what we did then. But aside from that I've never really had that set in front of me like that.
J-14: Were you lucky or unlucky in love growing up?
Amy: Probably unlucky. I didn't make good decisions. In the sense that if I -- you know when you like a guy more than they like you? And you know this and they don't treat you very well in the relationship. Well that's when it's time to hightail it and I think I stayed around far too long.
J-14: Any advice for our readers on snagging their crush?
Amy: Confidence! Just really believe in yourself.
J-14: Why will our readers like Leap Year?
Amy: I think what's so great about this film is that sometimes we center on the past and we think we know exactly what we want and life brings us another option that ends up being the perfect thing and that's what this shows. And also Matthew Goode is super cute! I have to say.
J-14: Oh he is cute!
Amy: He's English and has a charming accent!
Do you girls plan to see Leap Year? Why or why not?
