Amy Adams has revealed she's not too proud to sweep her own floors or do her own chores.
The four-time Oscar nominee, who stars in The Master, admitted that she likes living a low-key life with fiance Darren Le Gallo and their two-year-old daughter Aviana Olea, and will do her own housework and grocery shopping.
"It's out of necessity. I find it to be really grounding," she said.
"What I love about being an actress is exploring different aspects of humanity, and I feel like if I take myself out of humanity by allowing other people to do things for me, then I no longer live like the people I want to play.
"So it's important to me to keep my life as low-key as possible and then I can connect to the characters that I'm interested in playing."
Amy - who has starred in The Muppets, Enchanted and The Fighter - admitted she is uncomfortable with being tabloid fodder.
"I'm still not used to that, and I don't like it, but as long as they are respectful of my daughter..." she said.
"I still get surprised paparazzi are interested in following me to the grocery store. All I do is go to the park and the grocery store, so half the pictures are of me with dirty hair and my daughter, and half the time I haven't looked in the mirror before I leave the house."
:: The Master opens in cinemas on November 16.
