Adams: I don't see point in diets

Amy Adams has no truck with Hollywood diets

Amy Adams has said she's turning her back on Hollywood diets as she doesn't see the point in them.

The Man Of Steel actress, who plays Superman's girlfriend Lois Lane, told Allure magazine: "Perfect isn't normal, nor is it interesting."

Amy, who has a three-year-old daughter Aviana, said it didn't matter to her what other actresses looked like.

She said: "Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don't see the point. Do you know, the people I love as actresses, I've never, ever sought out pictures of them to see what they look like in a swimsuit."

Enchanted actress Amy also said she had a realistic idea of her own figure.

"I'm just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, 'OMG, look at Amy!'," she said. I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want.

"I've wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance - as some mere mortal. Let's be real here. I don't look that 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."

But she also said she thought her looks could be useful for creating characters on screen: "I have no features without make-up. I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face - it's like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do."

Amy Adams can be seen in Man Of Steel, in cinemas now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
