Amy Adams graces the cover of InStyle’s December 2011 issue wearing a pretty Valentino dress and Tiffany & Co. earrings. Inside, she discusses balancing her life, cutting herself a break, and beauty.
On balancing motherhood, love, and work: “I’m definitely not one of those women who make it look easy,” she says. “But I’m more patient than I ever thought I would be, and I’m not hard on myself anymore.”
On cutting herself a break: “I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I’m like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?’”
On beauty: “I find excuses to put on more makeup. I love to give everything a test run. I would love to cut my hair and try platinum—Christina Aguilera blond. Harlow blond.”
Also in the December 2011 issue: a holiday gift guide, a sexy hair and party makeup report, and a guide on how to survey the holidays in style. For more, pick up the issue when it arrives on newsstands on November 18 or head to InStyle.com.
