Amy Adams says she looks up to contemporary Reese Witherspoon. The 43-year-old actor said it was Witherspoon's decision to back Big Little Lies under her banner, Type A, that inspired her to executive produce new HBO drama Sharp Objects.

"Reese inspires me all the time. She's such a go-getter. I like wake up and take my time. I always imagine she wakes up with like, a list. She's just ready to go, but she's inspired me in her role as producer and creator for a long time," Adams, who also headlines "Sharp Objects", told El News.

The HBO show is helmed by Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Valee. The actor plays a journalist named Camille, who leaves a psychiatric hospital and returns to her home town to investigate the murder of two young girls. Adams said she could connect with her role and that is one reason she agreed to to the show.

"I think that one of the things I really related to is that Camille is somebody who sort of keeps her pain on the inside. I mean, she has a lot of vices and a lot of outlets for her pain, but I think that's something that a lot of women relate to, is we tend to be private with our pain, and I really had that in common with her," she said.
