Amy Adams is starring on HBO’s limited series Sharp Objects, which is airing now and getting good buzz. None of us have watched it yet but hopefully that will change for me this weekend. These are photos of Amy doing promotion duty in two different long print dresses. The black and red ruffled floral number is Michael Kors, and the white, black and red shirt dress is Gabriela Hearst. I like the crisp white dress more, probably due to the silhouette but the clean print with the graphic contrast is better too. The Michael Kors just looks too busy and it has little sequins on it which flash on camera and seem out of place.
On an appearance on Seth Meyers this week, Amy told a story I could definitely relate to. She said that had to apologize for accidentally calling and facetiming people at the top of her contacts list, namely Christina Applegate and Jennifer Aniston.
“Christina Applegate—she’s at the top of my call list,” Adams explained, “and I have fat cheeks. And I keep accidentally calling her when I smile during other phone calls. And then I don’t say anything and hang up, which is really rude.”
In fact, Adams estimated she’s accidentally butt dialed—or rather cheek dialed—Applegate 300 times within two months. She also admitted she hangs up before the Bad Moms actress answers.
“It’s not nice,” she said. “So, I apologize.”
As for Aniston, Adams said she accidentally FaceTimed the Friends star from her bed.
“I’m not sure it connected,” the Enchanted actress said. “So, who knows what happened there.”
However, Adams said she’s going to say hello the next time she mistakenly calls up one of her celebrity pals.
“I’m very very sorry,” she reiterated. “It’s very rude.”
Once I switched to an Android I stopped butt dialing people but this used to happen to me all the time. It’s a real flaw in the iPhone OS. I once sent a recorded voice message to my neighbor in which I said, and I swear this is true, “I feel like sh-t.” The message screen was open, I was sick and was explaining how bad it was, and I somehow recorded and sent it. I’ve called just about everybody, it just depended on where I was in the contact list from the last person. I usually ended up telling them sorry and that the call was an accident but only because I didn’t realize I had called until they answered. If I noticed prior to that I would hang up. I’m so glad I switched phones but I now live in fear of accidentally posting crap to Facebook or Instagram. There should be more safeguards in place to avoid regrettable social media posting, like the User Account Control prompt in Windows. “Do you want to allow the following program to livestream you now? This prompt will not disappear for 30 seconds because even if you meant to do this you should think about it.”
Here’s a clip of Amy’s interview. She also talks about her last three acting jobs on television, which were not successful for her.
