  • Amy Adams has revealed she was intimated by the Twilight leading lady when they teamed up to film new movie, On the Road

    Despite being a two-time Oscar nominee and new mum-of-one, Amy Adams has revealed she felt intimidated on learning that she’d be starring alongside Twilight leading lady, Kristen Stewart.

    The actresses both star in a new adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, but Adams has revealed that her co-star’s teen-queen status left her nervous.

    ‘I got requests for autographs, and I didn’t ask for a single one’ Adams divulged to to E! News. ‘I guess I’m getting to the point in my life where I’m suspicious of teenagers and I’m intimidated a little bit.’

    Acknowledging that Stewart is in fact 20-years-old, Adams added: ‘She’s not a teenager, but she’s close enough and I was very intimidated.’

    A Twi-hard herself, the actress told how she confided in Stewart that she’s a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s hit vampire series: ‘I told her I read the books and she was like, ‘You’ve read the books?”

    ‘She couldn’t compute it, but you have to imagine I was playing this sort of bedraggled drug addict, so she was like, ‘That doesn’t seem like the audience.’ But she was incredibly gracious and lovely.’

    On the Road is set for release in 2011, and has a star-packed cast that also includes Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and Sam Riley.
