Amy Adams did not want to talk about the Sony Pictures hacks, and it cost her nationwide publicity.
Us Weekly reports that the actress, 40, was scheduled to appear on the Today show this week to promote her movie Big Eyes, which opens on Christmas. But her appearance was pulled after she refused to talk about the hacks and the documents and details that were leaked.
“Amy’s segment was pulled very suddenly after she expressed that she’d rather not discuss the Sony hack,” a source told Us. “She was not aggressive or freaking out. … It is unfortunate. Amy didn’t do anything wrong and they pulled the interview.”
A Today representative said it does not allow guests to set restrictions on topics.

Frozen has earned Disney more than $1.27billion at the box office worldwide, becoming the most successful animated movie of all time.
