“Acting with Adams was also really fun. Amy is the most unselfconscious actress I’ve come across in a while. She’s not afraid to make a fool out of herself. She is spookily talented.” – Emily Blunt.“I was immediately impressed at how much fun she was having while looking absolutely fabulous in her couture gowns. I don’t manage to do either of those things with much grace and was chastened into looking for a way to try and enjoy the ride.” – Frances McDormand.“Amy has a little light on inside her that burns — sometimes a soft light, sometimes a hot little blue flame, but you are aware always of the light. It is her immediacy as an actress, that present quality that makes her special.” – Meryl Streep.[For about five minutes, he spoke of his admiration for Adams’s talent, generosity and work ethic. He spoke of how he believed people often misunderstood Amy. How in reality she was harder to pin down than she might seem. How she purposely kept a little mystery about herself.] “And for an actor that’s good,” he said. “More should do it.” – Philip Seymour Hoffman.Happy 40th Birthday, Amy! (Born August 20, 1974)
You’re my best friend, I love you.
Marilyn was frightened, insecure—trusted only her coach and was always late. During our scenes she’d look at my forehead instead of my eyes; at the end of a take, look to her coach, standing behind Jean Negulesco, for approval. If the headshake was no, she’d insist on another take. A scene often went to fifteen or more takes, which meant I’d have to be good in all of them as no one knew which one would be used. Not easy—often irritating. And yet I couldn’t dislike Marilyn. She had no meanness in her—no bitchery. She just had to concentrate on herself and the people who were there only for her. I had met her a few times before, and liked her. Grable and I decided we’d try to make it easier for her, to make her feel she could trust us. I think she finally did.

"You know you don’t have to act with me, Steve. You don’t have to say anything, and you don’t have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle."
