Amy Adams' scheduled appearance on NBC's Today Show was canceled this week because of a topic she was going to be asked about, but refused to discuss.
What was that, exactly?
The Big Eyes actress, 40, was told she'd be asked about the widespread hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment, and documents and details that were leaked.
She was not having it, and told the show in no uncertain terms that she would not talk about the topic. Today, in turn, decided to pull Adams' interview.
"Amy's segment was pulled suddenly after she expressed that she'd rather not discuss the hack," an insider says. "She was not aggressive or freaking out."
"It is unfortunate. Amy didn’t do anything wrong and they pulled the interview."
Today sources painted a different picture, mentioning so-called "demands."
"As a news program, the Today show doesn't allow guests to put restrictions on interviews," a rep for the show said in response to the Adams story.
"In this case ... we felt uncomfortable with the demands being made, and we determined the best course of action for all parties involved was to cancel the interview."
"As a courtesy, Amy and her team were told well in advance that she might get asked about Sony, and that it was entirely up to her whether she wanted to answer."
Adams was directly involved in the Sony hacking and associated leaks.
She and Jennifer Lawrence, two female stars of American Hustle, made a lot less from it than co-stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy Renner.
Beyond that, it's unclear what she would have been asked about. It's equally unclear whether she requested she not be asked about Sony or flat-out refused.
