Amy Adams has revealed she would rather her daughter won a trophy at school than she scooped a prestigious award for her latest role in American Hustle.

The 39-year-old Man Of Steel actress stars as seductive con artist Sydney Prosser in the 1970s crime flick, but the mother-of-one said she does not have her eye on Oscar glory.

The film, which is directed by Silver Linings Playbook director David O Russell, has already been named best picture by the New York Film Critics Circle.

Walking the red carpet in New York at the world premiere of the film, Amy was asked if she would like to take home a trophy for her performance.

"I would rather my daughter won a trophy for dance or bowling," she said.

"I'm not going to throw it away if I win it but it's just nice to be offered the jobs that earn that kind of conversation."

In the film, which also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner, Amy plays a former stripper who falls for con artist Irving Rosenfeld, played by Christian Bale.

The role requires her to sport an extensive array of plunging necklines, but Amy said she had no qualms about the racy ensembles.

"I wasn't nervous about the costumes, we always made sure the costumes worked with whatever manipulation she was working at the time, whether it was used for distraction or seduction or as a middle finger to her lover who was there with his wife."

American Hustle is released at the Vue West End on December 20 and is on general release from January 1, 2014.
