Daugh­ter doesn’t think she’s very ‘rock ‘n’ roll’

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

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.”
