Amy Adams may be widely acknowledged as one of Hollywood's most beautiful leading ladies, but in her own mind, she's widely acknowledged as being a featureless blob.
The Man of Steel star opened up to Allure about how she's become a movie star despite her allegedly imperfect looks.
"I've wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance -- as some mere mortal," the 38-year-old actress told the magazine. "Let's be real here. I don't look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn't anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot."
While she may not think of herself as a traditionally hot girl (although she's probably the only one), Amy seems comfortable with her lot in life.
"Perfect isn't normal, nor is it interesting," she said. "Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don't see the point. I'm just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, 'OMG, look at Amy!' I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want."
Even her signature red hair and porcelain complexion aren't off-limits from her scrutiny, although she's somehow managed to find the silver lining in these monstrous afflictions.
"I have no features without makeup," she said. "I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face -- it's like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do."
