The 38-year-old "Man of steel" star feels that guys were scared to date after knowing that her mother was into bodybuilding, reported Contactmusic. "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.
