Amy Adams says she "was uncomfortable" discussing the Sony hack in an interview Monday that the Today show unceremoniously canceled at the last minute, but she tells USA Today that while "I said I would rather not add my voice to this conversation," that "it was clear they were drawing a hard line. That this would be part of the conversation." She says she "walked away" to do the interview, under the assumption that "they were going to ask me about (the Sony hack). And I was prepared for that, to whatever degree I was prepared." Minutes later, she says, "I was informed that they had decided to pull the interview. I was confused and definitely frustrated. I still don't understand."

Confused or not, she appears pretty firm in her desire to not discuss the hack, which revealed that she and American Hustle co-star Jennifer Lawrence made 2% less than their male counterparts. She tells USA Today: "I am not going to add my voice to that conversation. Even in this room. You can add that to your story. And that's fair." Adams is currently promoting Big Eyes, which is out today. (One writer thinks Christmas is the most terrible time for movies of the year.)
