I recently saw American Hustle (2013) starring Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence and others. I liked it a lot. It wasn’t a magnificent film. But it was plenty interesting and a lot of fun to boot.
I want to tell you that I was just knocked out by Amy Adams. I thought she was incredibly gorgeous in this movie and for most of the film, I just sat there staring at her with my mouth wide agape. She was incredibly gorgeous and sexy in that movie.
I then took a look at some of her previous films and I was kind of shocked to realize that I had seen most all of her previous work but had no memory of her. Among her previous films that I had seen were:
The Fighter - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0964517/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_12
Julie and Julia - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1135503/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_16
Catch Me If You Can - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0264464/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_35
I have also seen several more of her films but had no recollection of her being any great beauty. But she truly is. She is a fabulously beautiful beauty.
In Catch Me If You Can, she played a very young girl - perhaps as young as 13 or 14. Catch Me If You Can was a movie that was a lot of fun and I am happy to recommend it to all of you. I’m sure you will enjoy it very much.
But, the point I want to make to you in this thread is really in the form of a question:
Would any of you have any idea why it is that I could be so knocked out by her in American Hustle and how I could find Julie and Julia to be such a tremendously entertaining film but yet, have no memory of any of her previous performances?
The one thing that I found very mysterious was that in American Hustle, I found her to be very “long-legged” and extemely tall. I would have guessed that she was perhaps 6 feet tall.
However, in all her previous films, she seems quite short. You probably wonder why that is at all significant and the reason is that I seem to find tall women to be far more attractive than shorter ones. As a matter of fact, I would have to say that I only find women highly attractive if they are perhaps at least 5’ 9" tall. However, in most of her films, she gives the appearance of being shorter than about 5’ 6". Would anyone know why that might be? Is it a question of the appearance of her characters on film? Or might it be somehow be due to my faulty perception?
More importantly, I would like to know if anyone else here has had a similar reaction to Amy Adams?
If I may, I would very much like to recommend to you that you try to see Julie and Julia whenever it may be convenient for you. It’s nothing like American Hustle. But it is truly a delightful film and I found it to be extremely “sweet” and definitely worth several viewings. It may well be described as a “woman’s film”. But I certainly found nothing wrong with that description - nothing at all!
So, I suggest you try it. You will love it!
