Amy Adams is a five-time Oscar nominee, which means she’s got some seriously formidable acting chops. It also means she can cry on command over hot sauce.

On Friday’s The Tonight Show, Adams told host Jimmy Fallon that her 5-year-old daughter, Aviana, likes when her mother makes herself cry. To illustrate the skill, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star begins getting teary over her love of Sriracha and the fate of the factory that produces the condiment.
