Amy Adams: 'Modelling is not my first love'

Amy Adams has confessed she has to pretend to be someone else when modelling because otherwise she feels too uncomfortable.

Amy Adams admits modelling doesn't come naturally to her.

The 40-year-old actress is often considered to be a fashion icon due to her stunning red carpet looks but she's confessed she just sees herself as an "everyday girl".

She said: "Modelling is not my first love, I'm five foot, with a sort of everyday girl's kind of build."

Speaking about how she has to pretend she's someone else when she's posing for photos, she added: "I think that's the only way I can do it ... I can't just be like, 'I'm a pretty girl sitting in front of a camera', because then I just feel super self conscious."

The 'American Hustle' star admits taking on the role of the seductive Sydney Prosser in the film - which earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress - gave her a lot more confidence in showing off her assets in everyday life.

She told ITV's 'Lorraine': "I think it made me a lot more comfortable with the front of my body so I just sort of don't think about it as much anymore. My daughter calls me out on it so I can't be too risque because she's clocking it."

However, Amy claims that when she's not promoting her films and is on mother duty, she is far from glamorous.

She added: "When I'm mom, I really look like a mom, it looks like I really gave up"
