The Today Show decided not to proceed with an Amy Adams interview after it was revealed she would be questioned about the recent Sony hack –and the fact that she made less money than her male counterparts for the movie, American Hustle. Amy had been booked to do an interview with Today to promote her new movie, Big Eyes when they decided to bail after she said she would not comment on the recent hack and allegedly became aggressive about the issue.
The Today Show issued a statement, “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.”
The Weinstein Company backed Adams decided not to talk about Sony.”We firmly stand behind Amy Adams. We’ve been lucky enough to have had her talents grace several of our films. We are certain her fellow actors and directors would all agree, she is nothing but the consummate professional both on and off set. Amy decided to speak up for herself and express her disappointment that ‘Today’ would feel the need to ask her a question she did not feel comfortable [answering], and rather than respect her opinion or continue the discussion, the reaction was to pull her appearance from the show.”
