Days after Cate Blanchett paid tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman via her acceptance speech at the BAFTAs, another colleague, Amy Adams, appeared on Inside the Actor's Studio and broke down when the topic of her former co-star was broached.

The Academy Award nominee appeared opposite Hoffman twice: first in 2008’s Doubt and again on 2012’s The Master.

"I wish you all could get a chance to work with him,” the actress said on the Bravo series.

“He was beautiful. He’s a beautiful spirit and he, he had this unique ability to see people."

Amy Adams attended Philip Seymour Hoffman's funeral last week and Valentino made the mistake of using the event as a way to promote of one of their luxury handbags.

The fashion house sent an email announcing their new Garavani Rockstud Duble bag after Adams toted it to the late actor's wake. 

Now Adams' rep is speaking out against the tasteless stunt, saying:

"Amy Adams is not a paid spokesperson for Valentino, and the suggestion she would use this moment to participate in a promotion is truly appalling." 

A rep for Valentino expressed regret for the gaffe in a statement that read:

"We sincerely regret releasing a photo to the media this morning of Amy Adams with a Valentino bag."

"We were not aware the photograph was taken while she was attending the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman."

"It was an innocent mistake, and we apologize to Ms. Adams, who was not aware, or a part of, our P.R. efforts," spokesperson Mona Swanson went on. 

Let this tacky fashion faux pas now known as "bag-gate" be a lesson to PR companies out there.

The first clip from Man of Steel has arrived!

It features tons of action! Tons of fighting! Tons of 'splosions.

Just kidding, it features a slightly ornery chat between Lois Lane and Perry White. Take a look:

Amy Adams stars as Lois, with Laurence Fishburn taking on the role of Perry.

Zack Snyder directs the Superman reboot, which tells the story of the superhero's origins, with Henry Cavill in the role of Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman.

Catch Man of Steel in theaters June 14.

With wins in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary, Mitt Romney has a leg up in the race for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

If he won the right to face our first African-American President, Barack Obama, Romney would become the first Mormon on a major party ticket.

While this is hardly an endorsement of Romney, good for him, and for voters embracing candidates of varying religions, backgrounds and ethnicity.

In honor of Mitt, here are a bunch of celebrity Mormons you might not know about! Who's your favorite? Read THG's Top 10 and vote in our poll:

Mitt Romney for President

10. Mitt Romney. He'll never be accused of being electrifying on the campaign trail, but he wins. And least so far. Plus, he's got the hair.

9. Jon Huntsman. Another family man and GOP presidential candidate who embraces his Mormon beliefs. Doing not quite as well in the polls.

8. Amy Adams of Enchanted fame was raised Mormon. Who knew!

7. Marie Osmond and her siblings grew up in a strict Mormon home.

6. Aaron Eckhart of The Dark Knight fame was raised Mormon. Eckhart even transferred to BYU and graduated from the Mormon University in '94.

  • Derek Hough Photo
  • Julianne Hough Red Carpet Pic

5. (tie) Paul Walker. That's one fast, furious, handsome Mormon! And Jon Heder. Napoleon Dynamite quotes. Enough said on both accounts.

4. Katherine Heigl. While no longer a practicing Mormon, the former Grey's Anatomy star credits her LDS upbringing with shaping her character.

3. Lacey Schwimmer. DWTS pro and Mormon (as are our co-#1s).

2. David Archuleta. The American Idol runner-up recently announced he's stepping out of the limelight to embark on a two-year Mormon mission.

1. Julianne and Derek Hough. The Footloose star and DWTS pro siblings pretty much hit the genetic jackpot with looks, charm and physical abilities.

Who's your favorite celebrity Mormon?

Superman will be flying to the rescue of an Oscar nominee in 2012.

Director Zach Snyder has confirmed that Amy Adams will take on the iconic role of Lois Lane in his upcoming reboot of this franchise. The star of The Fighter joins a cast that includes Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.

The New Lois Lane

"Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about," Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter. "So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today."

What do you think of this casting choice?
