Amy Adams: My daughter doesn't think I'm 'rock 'n' roll'

Amy Adams' daughter doesn't think she's very "rock 'n' roll".

The 'Nocturnal Animals' actress - who has six-year-old Aviana with husband Darren LeGallo - appreciates the fact her little girl already "defines herself" as a separate personality away from her mother.

She said: "She defines herself differently to me and I like that. She said, 'Mum, I'm more rock 'n' roll than you. You're not very rock 'n' roll.' And I said, 'You're right.'"

The 42-year-old actress feels she is a "powerful" mother, though she is unsure whether she has the same attitude in her career.

She said: "I don't know if I feel more powerful as an actress but I feel powerful as a mother and more powerful than I did in my 20s. I dont know what that means for my career - that's yet to be seen. But as a woman, if I lose something because of the honesty of who I am, then I don't care."

Amy changed her attitude to work after making 'American Hustle' as she realised she wasn't able to let go of the project during her time off.

She explained to ELLE magazine: "I'd be distracted and left with my character or an experience from the day. Even though I was present with my family, there was a part of me that was still wrapped up in myself and I didn't like that.

"I couldn't figure out what to do but when it got crazy, it became clear. I wasn't fully enjoying my time on set because I wasn't at home and I wasn't fully enjoying my time at home, I just felt thin. My expectations of myself were so high, I needed to allow myself to be flawed, both at work and at home, and accept I'm not perfect and able to do it all."
