Amy Adams' anxiety for her daughter

Amy Adams' anxiety for her daughter

Amy Adams gets anxious when she is teaching her daughter to read.

The 'Arrival' star is currently helping her six-year-old daughter Aviana - who she has with her husband Darren Le Gallo - learn to read but admits she isn't "the best teacher" as she feels her anxiety rubs off on her daughter.

She told Entertainment Tonight: "Ultimately, I'm not the best teacher for her. I want for her so bad.

"She can feel my anxiety and I have to remember to calm down and that she'll get it in her own time, but we have fun with it. We laugh a lot."

Meanwhile, the 42-year-old actress previously insisted she would encourage her daughter to become an actress if she wanted to.

She said: "I would support her. I would encourage her to kind of find a great community to get involved with.

"Maybe I'd steer her towards theatre and start there so she's got a good foundation of work ethic because it takes a lot of work."

But acting does take its toll on Amy herself as she previously admitted she "felt nauseous" throughout the entirety of the filming of 'Arrival' as her character Louise "lived in her belly" for the entire movie.

She said: "I know it sounds strange, but characters live in different places in my body. My character, Louise, lived in my belly, and that may sound weird, but I just had a stomachache the whole time [during filming]. I knew whenever I felt nauseous I was connected with Louise."

Amy has taken a different approach to her acting career now she is a mother.

She explained: "For me, it just has to be the right time, the right place. I'm most likely not going to be able to go to Budapest and shoot something."
