Amy Adams dishes on working with Christian Bale, and the one thing she did to Bradley Cooper on set that made her cry.
It’s set in the ’70s and is directed by David O. Russell. Is there more to say? Already gaining Oscar buzz, Amy Adams, along with Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence, gives one of this year’s most stellar performances as a con woman whose caught up with the art of the con and, of course, love.
In American Hustle, brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams), is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.
In this interview, Amy Adams talks about how America Hustle was one of the best experiences of her film career, working with Christian Bale and the one scene that was hard to get through.
