Personal Quote:

[speaking to Robert Ito about American Hustle (2013)] I want to say the f-word so much in this interview, because these characters are in such a f'd-up situation. [But] I think it's rude. Mormon upbringing. I'll say it in film. But that's a character. I just won't say it in print. See more »

Trivia:

She and Leonardo DiCaprio where both 28 years old when they portrayed teenage lovers in Catch Me if You Can. Adams considered that film a turning point in her career. See more »
