Amy Adams on Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian
“We wanted that spirit of adventure in Amelia, definitely,” Adams said. “So did Ben. Somebody who could hold their own in a man’s world, someone who wasn’t going to take that, and she became such a fine, spunky character to such a foil to Ben I followed the script and followed history and put them together in one way or another for the movie.”
Following Doubt and Enchanted, Adams has had no problem switching between comedy and drama. “I like both. I have a good time doing all genres. I don’t think one is easier or harder. I think comedy is really, really hard, but I had great people to work with on this. Comedy is all about the people around you. So, this was a pretty amazing time.”
Shooting on location in Washington, D.C. was a treat for the actress too. “We shot the Lincoln Memorial too at night. It was a full moon over the whole national mall. It was just gorgeous. It was really amazing.”
With her career going strong, Adams is trying not to plan too far ahead. She wants to enjoy the ride. “I’m having a good time. Right now I’m having a good time. I’m trying to enjoy it. I get to work with amazing people so I’m just sort of counting my blessings while I’m here and we’ll see. Live in the present I guess.”
Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian opens to theaters on May 22nd.
