"I learned how to knit - Meryl Streep taught me," Amy told Streep superfan Kelly Clarkson on her daytime talk show. "She's a big knitter, she's very crafty."
"She did it in two parts - to sort of create a bonding experience between our characters, and also probably she felt sorry for me because I tend to be a bit energetic. So I'm sure she thought it was a great way for me to direct my energy instead of just skipping around in my (nun's) habit."
Knitting is not the only skill Adams took from the icon, "She taught me many things. I worked with her and I'm still completely enamoured by her. I always say I carry around a little, like, Meryl in my heart. Whenever I'm stuck with a tough decision, I'm like, 'What would Meryl do in this situation?' "
After "Doubt", Amy Adams reunited on screen with Meryl Streep in 2009's critically-acclaimed movie "Julie & Julia". Streep won Best Actress title at numerous prestigious awards including Oscar and Golden Globes for her portrayal of famed chef Julia Child in the Nora Ephron-directed biographical movie.
