Amy Adams dominates the cover and inside of Allure magazine's July issue, which will be available on newsstands June 25. As her latest movie, Man of Steel, smashed box office records over the weekend, Amy has been soaring around the globe promoting the action flick alongside costars Henry Cavill and Russell Crowe. Before then, though, Amy sat down with the magazine and opened up about her "OMG"-worthy bikini body, her iconic role as Lois Lane, and her issue with Lycra. To find out why the star doesn't believe perfect is normal or interesting, read more from Amy Adams in Allure:

  • On her bikini body: "I'm just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, 'OMG, look at Amy!' I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want."
  • On being unrecognizable: "I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blond lashes. You could just paint my face — it's like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do."
  • On playing Lois Lane: "I've wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance — as some mere mortal. Let's be real here. I don't look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn't anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot."
