Amy Adams’ name made a cameo in the Sony Hack Escandalo of 2014 when leaked emails showed that she and Jennifer Lawrence made less than Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner for American Hustle. Another leaked email claimed that David O. Russell “abused” Amy on the set of American Hustle. I guess the producers of Today wanted to her ask about that and the Sony hack in general while she was on the show to promote Big Eyes (which sadly isn’t a biopic about the life and times of STAINS). Amy didn’t want to get into the Sony hack, because Today only gave her 4 minutes and she doesn’t think that mess has anything to do with her. So Today said to her the same thing 2 out of 5 Internet hook ups say to me when they see me in person for the first time, “I have no use for you. Please leave!” Amy’s interview was canceled. Those dum dums on Today! Why even ask her about the Sony hack? If they wanted to ask her about a truly relevant news story, they should’ve asked for her thoughts on Jan Terri’s new Christmas video, because that’s something the American public really cares about.
Deadline says that Amy’s people were told she would be asked about the Sony hack before she showed up to Today’s studio. Once she got there, she was told again that she would be asked about the Sony hack. Amy told them again that she really didn’t want to get into it. Today let her know that they are a “news organization” and no one tells them what they can and cannot ask. If you’re laughing at Today calling themselves a “news organization,” I’ll have you know that they show videos of cats massaging dog heads and constantly show pictures of Savannah Guthrie’s baby. That IS serious news!
Amy reluctantly agreed to the questions and told producers she would answer them the way she saw fit. Today canceled the interview anyway, because they’re a mess and Matt Lauter’s asshole ways has rubbed off on them. Apparently, Today also tried to make it look like it was her fault and leaked a story to the NYDN about how she acted like a diva bitch.
Deadline also points out that Bradley Cooper was recently on Today to promote American Sniper and he was never asked about the Sony hack even though his name was also mentioned in leaked emails. Today released a statement where they once again called themselves a news program. Calling Today a news program is like calling Dlisted a work of fine literature.
“As a news program, the Today show doesn’t allow guests to dictate restrictions on interviews. In this case, after hours of discussion we felt uncomfortable with the demands being made and we determined the best course of action for all parties involved was to cancel the interview.”
I’ve never heard any stories about how Amy Adams is difficult, so I’m not buying Today’s version. I mean, Amy gave her First Class seat to a soldier in coach and she didn’t tweet about it! I don’t even know why Today wanted to ask her about that Sony stuff anyway. What were they expecting her to say? “Yes, yes, I know all about it, because I did it! I’m a North Korean hacker working undercover as a Hollywood movie actress!” I kind of wish that Amy’s interview went on, because I’m sure she would’ve said, “Don’t be glib, Matt,” when asked about the Sony hack.
But whatever, Today doesn’t need Amy anyway! The “news organization” replaced Amy’s interview with an EXCLUSIVE interview with one of Al Roker’s sharts. Take that, Amy.
Here’s Amy with the real Margaret Keane at the Big Eyes premiere in NYC on December 15th.
