Amy Adams stars with Clint Eastwood in Trouble With The Curve

Amy Adams has revealed she used to punch walls to vent her frustrations, but now she uses pillows instead..

The Oscar-nominated actress stars in Trouble With The Curve with Clint Eastwood, which is about a baseball scout and his estranged daughter who try to rebuild their relationship on a road trip together.

Talking about what she finds therapeutic, Amy revealed: "Punching pillows is good. It took me a long time. I used to punch walls."

The Muppets star also explained how she had to find her inner child to play damaged character Mickey.

She admitted: "It's very hard to open yourself up to those emotions and to have to create a history for this character that is so raw.

"It's that horrible thing of things happening in the past that you haven't worked through. So you're a grown woman in your 30s and you still feel like a child. It's so frustrating to not have that control over yourself.

"So to go to those places and to have to find that place in me that is still a 12-year-old that feels really sad about things. It's never fun, but it's very cathartic."
