Amy Adams - Amy Adams wants Lois Lane role to empower women

Amy Adams wants her portrayal of Lois Lane in 'Man of Steel' to have a positive affect on young women.

The 38-year-old actress was inspired by Margot Kidder - who played the fictional journalist in the original 'Superman' movie in 1978 - when she was younger, and she is hoping her portrayal of the heroine in the forthcoming Zack Snyder-directed 'Man of Steel' will be just as empowering for other females.

She said: ''I grew up really loving [her]. I wasn't trying to be her, but I hope I do enough of a good job to have the same effect on young girls as Lois Lane had on me.

''I really loved seeing a woman represented as a modern woman in a superhero movie, and not even glamourised, really - she was kind of a troublemaker. She wasn't a typical heroine. I identified with her from a very young age.''

While Amy is hoping her take on Lois - the love interest of Clark Kent/Superman, played by Henry Cavill - will be welcomed by viewers, she admits the character will have a different look from her usual jet black hair in the comic book character's latest big screen outing.

She added to USA Today: ''This was a new idea, down to the hair colour. I knew people would want to talk about my hair colour. It was going to be a thing.

''Zack told me he didn't hire me to play someone else. He hired me to play Lois Lane. It's a whole reimagining.''
