"As a news program, the Today show doesn't allow guests to put restrictions on interviews," a Today show spokesperson said in a statement to ET. "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."
The Weinstein Company, the production company behind Bright Eyes, threw their support behind the 40-year-old actress in regards to her Today show piece being cut. "We firmly stand behind Amy Adams," they said in a statement to Deadline. "We've been lucky enough to have had her talents grace several of our films. We are certain her fellow actors and directors would all agree, she is nothing but the consummate professional both on and off set."
The statement continues, "Amy decided to speak up for herself and express her disappointment that Today would feel the need to ask her a question she did not feel comfortable [with], and rather than respect her opinion or continue the discussion, the reaction was to pull her appearance from the show."
