“Acting with Adams was also really fun. Amy is the most unselfconscious actress I’ve come across in a while. She’s not afraid to make a fool out of herself. She is spookily talented.” – Emily Blunt.
I was immediately impressed at how much fun she was having while looking absolutely fabulous in her couture gowns. I don’t manage to do either of those things with much grace and was chastened into looking for a way to try and enjoy the ride.” – Frances McDormand.
Amy has a little light on inside her that burns — sometimes a soft light, sometimes a hot little blue flame, but you are aware always of the light. It is her immediacy as an actress, that present quality that makes her special.” – Meryl Streep.
[For about five minutes, he spoke of his admiration for Adams’s talent, generosity and work ethic. He spoke of how he believed people often misunderstood Amy. How in reality she was harder to pin down than she might seem. How she purposely kept a little mystery about herself.] “And for an actor that’s good,” he said. “More should do it.” – Philip Seymour Hoffman.

When everything happens to you when you’re so young, you’re very lucky, but by the same token, you’re never going to have that same feeling again. The first time anything happens to you - your first love, your first success - the second one is never the same.

Thank you for bringing joy into my childhood and life with your voice and acting. Thank you for your contagious jokes, your wacky impersonations, and amazing acting. Thank you for making my childhood experience better, and thank you for bringing joy to those even though you battled with your own joy. If only you could have known how much you’ve impacted people. Your life work will live on, and you will never be forgotten. I know I won’t forget you. Thank you for helping me whenever I felt sad and having a film for every mood. Gone, but never forgotten.
