Amy Adams suffered from nausea throughout the filming of 'Arrival' because her character Louise "lived in my belly"
Amy Adams "felt nauseous" throughout the filming of 'Arrival'.
The 42-year-old actress says her character Louise "lived in her belly" the entire time she was in character and it left her feeling quite sick.
She said: "I know it sounds strange, but characters live in different places in my body.
"My character, Louise, lived in my belly, and that may sound weird, but I just had a stomachache the whole time [during filming]. I knew whenever I felt nauseous I was connected with Louise."
And the 'Enchanted' star has admitted she is taking on different work now she is a mother to Aviana, six.
She added to the New York Daily News: "For me, it just has to be the right time, the right place. I'm most likely not going to be able to go to Budapest and shoot something."
Meanwhile, Amy previously revealed she had a "deep connection" to her 'Arrival' character as soon as she read the script.
She shared: "It was really one of the best scripts I ever read, and it had such an amazing heart and soul to it, and on top of that it had these sci-fi elements which were also interesting and intriguing.
"It definitely falls in the category of sci-fi, but all the greatest sci-fi films that I have enjoyed offer a lot of complex ideas. It's not solved with simplicity and it begs a lot of conversation from the audience and a lot of thinking.
"But at the end of the day, it left me with such a deep connection to Louise that it was hard for me to imagine letting it go and not sort of getting to see it through."
