Amy Adams in 'Trouble with the Curve'

Amy Adams is receiving major Oscar buzz for her roles this year in the films “Trouble with the Curve” and “The Master,” but she still sees herself as a poor girl from Colorado.

She told The Guardian newspaper, “I still think I’m like the poor girl from Colorado who worked three jobs to buy a car. That’s still my mentality, so I’ll be walking down the street, and I forget what I do and who I am. Someone will come up to me and say hi, and I’m thinking, ‘I must know you,’ and I realize that, no, I don’t know them and they don’t know me. At all!”

As a child, Adams’ father was in the military, and she credits that upbringing with how she’s able to handle things. “It definitely makes you a little bit more transient, which can turn out to be a good quality in life, and in fact has helped me in what I do… What it really does is teach you how to adapt and change and fit into a new group or school, and that really is a lot like turning up to a new movie project and finding your place.”
