Amy Adams is the new cover girl for Vanity Fair's November 2008 issue. She was photographed by photo duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot. The fashion was styled by Michael Roberts. Inspiration came from the "Old Hollywood" portrait shots of George Hurrell.

Some snippets from the accompanying interview, courtesy of Vanity Fair -

About how she pursued her part in the new movie Sunshine Cleaning- "I didn’t audition—I hounded!” Adams admits. “I hounded [producer] Scott Rudin and John Patrick Shanley for months!” Another actor was attached to the part, so Adams was told to forget it. Still, she flew to New York and called Shanley with the old ruse that she was already there on other business, and could they just meet for coffee? “I’m a tenacious person, but I’m not usually that sort of dog-with-a-bone,” says Adams. “But I just loved Doubt. I loved the delicacy of it."

Regarding "Faith" - "Faith is something I’ve been exploring in my roles for a while,” Adams says as she takes a dainty bite of her room-service salad. “How we deal with doubt, how we deal with questions.” With each new character, she asks herself: What is this character’s religious background? “I think it’s a great indicator of behavior—their faith or the lack thereof."
