Uh-Oh — it looks like Amy Adams just made an enemy out of the Today show! The actress was supposed to stop by the morning show this week, but her appearance was suddenly canceled because she allegedly refused to discuss a very popular topic — the Sony hack.
“As a news program, the Today show doesn’t allow guests to put restrictions on interviews,” a rep for the NBC show says. “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.”
Amy was just one of many celebrities who had private information leaked by the Sony hackers. In this case, it was her salary for the movie American Hustle, which was revealed to be much lower than the movie’s male stars’, that went public.
The Weinstein Company, which is distributing Big Eyes, the movie Amy was meant to promote on Today, stands by its star. “We’ve been lucky enough to have her talents grace several of our films,” a rep for the company says. “We are certain her fellow actors and directors would 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 with, and rather than respect her opinion or continue the discussion, the reaction was to pull her appearance from the show.”
