Amy Adams admires Lady GaGa and Katy Perry's ''cool looks''.

While the 38-year-old actress enjoys seeing the two stars wearing ''risky'' styles, the brunette beauty insists she is too ''self-conscious'' to wear similar garments because she ''hates'' drawing attention to herself.

She said: ''I really admire people like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry who have the freedom to wear such cool looks. I love people who take risks, but I also like to stay true to myself and that's just not me.

''I think it's great when women make a real statement, but I'm a little self-conscious. I prefer to stay natural, as I hate drawing attention to myself.''

Amy - who has two-year-old daughter Aviana with fiance Darren Le Gallo - believes looking perfect is ''boring'' and insists it is ''nice'' to see people with imperfections.

She told Britain's InStyle magazine: ''I'm a strong believer that looking perfect is boring and, besides, I'm far from it. I think it's nice when you can see a few imperfections, which is why I war sheer rather than heavy foundations. I guess the one product I couldn't live without is mascara.

''When it comes to my body, sometimes, I feel in really good shape and other times, I feel like I'm letting it slide.

''I'm trying to get back to my pre-pregnancy body, but I don't know if I ever will 100 per cent. I try to exercise every day, even if it's only 15 or 20 minutes of yoga.''

''Finding the energy can be tough, so I've recently gone from one coffee a day to two or three! When it comes to body advice, I always say it boils down to confidence.

''Accept the body you've been given and work with it.''
