Amy Adams Didn't Hit Gym for "Fighter" Movie

| by

 Amy Adams is excited -- after all The Fighter will be out in theaters soon and she's already gotten a Golden Globe nomination for her work on the film. The starlet had to keep in shape for her role as a tough girl from Lowell, Massachusetts, and it wasn't exactly easy considering she just gave birth. She told Parade magazine,

"I've been working out when I can, and I'm trying to eat in a healthful way, but losing weight is not my number-one priority," she said. "It's part of my job to return to some semblance of what I was before. But I don't feel I've ever made my career on my rockin' bod."

When director David O. Russell told Adams she'd be donning short shorts and crop tops for a number of scenes, her first impulse was to hit the gym -- she wanted to make an impact on the eyes on screen. Turns out, Russell liked her just the way she was.

"He said, 'I want you to look like a girl who drinks beer,'" she relayed.

What more could any guy ask for?
