Actress Amy Adams admits that her teenage love life suffered because of her mother's muscular looks. The 38-year-old "Man of steel" star feels that guys were scared to date after knowing that her mother was into bodybuilding, reported a daily.
"She had seven kids and then she decided she wanted to get into bodybuilding. She did enter competitions, she was kind of like semi-professional, started as a novice.
She was really intimidating to my boyfriends. "I tended to date skinny guys. She moved a TV in front of one of them once and he was terrified.
We were watching a movie and the TV wasn't getting reception, so she literally picked it up and moved it to another part of the room. She's tough, she's a tough woman," Adams said.
The actress is currently engaged to actor and artist Darren Le Gallo.
