It was just supposed to be a simple morning talk-show appearance for Amy Adams to promote her latest film, "Big Eyes," and do a victory lap after her impressive "Saturday Night Live" hosting duty, but instead we have yet another repercussion of the Sony hacking scandal. Adams was reportedly in the "Today" show green room, ready to go on the air, when she was told she would be asked to comment on the Sony scandal. "Amy said she didn't want to contribute to the media coverage of it … then she was abruptly told that her interview with 'Today' was canceled. She was shocked and upset," a source tells Page Six. Another source, though, saw her as a bit more than "shocked and upset," claiming that Adams "was angry and acting belligerent, she was yelling at 'Today' producers and reduced a young female staffer to tears." Guess she did learn a thing or two from working with David O. Russell after all.
Probably the most entertaining part of all of this is the NBC spokesperson's statement explaining that "as a news program, the 'Today' show doesn't allow guests to put restrictions on interviews." Oh man. First of all, that's total bull. And second of all, it's so cute that you think of yourself as a news program. Adorable.
