Amy Adams kept things light on Vice set by singing 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' in the style of Lynne Cheney
Nothing like a singalong on set to keep the mood light!
On the red carpet at the 25th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, double-nominee Amy Adams shared some insight into how she kept things fun on the sets of her two 2019 projects — Vice and Shiny Objects. As it turns out, bursting into song is pretty habitual for the actress.
“It’s one of the things I do to keep things light on set,” she told PeopleTV hosts Jeremy Parsons and Lola Ogunnaike on the carpet. “I sing on most sets, but it was really fun to sing as Lynne Cheney.” She added that “Pour Some Sugar On Me” was her go-to tune for that character.
Elsewhere, on the set of the dark HBO miniseries Shiny Objects, Adams was able to escape the troubled mindset of her character Camille by going home to her daughter. “Being a mom really brings you right back down to earth and helps you keep a really clear separation because I couldn’t bring Camille into the house,” she explained.
Her Shiny Objects costar has another take on how they coped with the heavy material. “Patricia Clarkson always jokes we drank fake alcohol on set and real alcohol off set,” said Adams, adding praise for the actress who portrayed her classy but cruel mother on the show. “She’s from a different era,” she said. “She’s an old-time movie star; I loved being in her presence. She was so perfect for Adora; she brought all of her elegance, and also her wit and devious side.”
Adams is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role in Vice and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie for Sharp Objects. Clarkson is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie for Sharp Objects also.
