Amy Adams bumped from "Today" for not talking about Sony hack

Actress Amy Adams was scheduled to appear on the "Today" show this week, but her segment was pulled after the "Big Eyes" star reportedly refused to answer questions about the Sony hacks. US Weekly reports that a rep for "Today" said that the show "doesn't allow guests to put restrictions on interviews." "In this case, after hours of discussion we felt uncomfortable with the demands being made, and we determined the best course of action for all parties involved was to cancel the interview." According to reports, some of the information leaked in the Sony hacks involved Adams' salary for "American Hustle." Emails from Sony executives revealed that Adams and Jennifer Lawrence were paid much less for that film than the other stars, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner.
