Amy Adams Allure Magazine August 2009


At 35, former Hooters Girl turned two-time Oscar-nominee Amy Adams is in no hurry to rush down the aisle with actor fiance Darren Le Gallo.

“We haven’t even started with the date,” the Julie & Julia star told Allure Magazine’s August 2009 issue, on newsstands July 21. “I’ve been really busy, and I feel like a horrible fiancee that I haven’t gotten swept up in the whole idea of a wedding. But I haven’t.”

The couple co-starred together in the 2006 film Pennies.

“I think he was patient for the first nine months, but now that we have been engaged for a year, he’s sort of, you know, ‘This is going to happen, right?'” she explained. “He understands I’m busy, but he’s ready. He’s much more ready for kids and stuff than I am.”

Looking back on her younger days, Amy said she wishes she hadn’t spent so much time pursuing the wrong types of men.

“When I look at my 20s, or when I look at any period in my life, I think about how much time I’ve wasted trying to find the right man. It’s like, if I could go back and do it again, I would have taken guitar lessons or something. I would have put my energy into something that paid off in the end, instead of trying to improve myself for men. Oh, the time and the energy, trying to impress somebody who was actually a big jerk, you know?”
