AceShowbiz - Amy Adams was a "really bad waitress" before finding fame in Hollywood. The 48-year-old actress used to perform in dinner theatre but joked that she could "never remember" the orders and talked too much.
"I loved doing dinner theatre so much. It gave me such a love for what I do and the work ethic of the people involved is just unparalleled. But one of them I waited tables and I thought I'd better hone my craft because I was just a really bad waitress. It's a hard job, I couldn't remember what anyone wanted and I did just want to talk to them a lot!" she said.
Still remembering that time fondly, the "Disenchanted" star went on to add that even on stage in dinner theatre she spent "a lot of time "falling over on stage in the early days of her career.
Speaking on SiriusXM's "Jess Cagle" podcast, she told Julie Cunningham, "Really if I'm thinking about horrific times in dinner theatre, it would mostly because I did like to try hard and I would try too hard and I fell a lot on stage. I fell a lot!"
"There was a lot of time spent crawling around trying to get my feet back from under me. I one time kicked and just kicked my foot right from under me, I had to get that leg up and get that extension! But I loved it so much. That was when I could dance really well, because they dance, like crazy!"
