Amy Adams "Wasted" Her 20s Hunting for a Man
In the new issue of Ladies Home Journal Amy Adams opens up about finding love with actor Darren LeGallo â€” and about all the years she squandered trying in vain to find a perfect man.
"I spent most of my 20s looking to find a man. What a waste of energy," Amy admits. "Now I actually have a man and I'm able to focus on becoming a woman."
A huge turning point in her life â€” both romantically and professionally â€”Â came while filming Julia and Julia with Meryl Streep.
"I got engaged on this film â€” the day before I finished shooting," she explains. "Maybe this is a very, I don't know, young girl statement, but when you're not seeking to gain the approval of your man, it's amazing what you can accomplish."
The Oscar-nominated star says she's learned a valuable lesson from her fiancÃ©. "He accepted me from day one as I was," she says. "Which allowed me to discover who I was meant to be. I'm very appreciative of that."
