Amy Adams: 'Enchanted' Oscar Performance Was 'Most Terrifying' Moment In Her Life

Amy Adams has no problem singing on film -- hey, see "The Muppets" this weekend for proof -- but asking her to do it live in the front of the world? That's another story.

The Oscar-nominee spoke with NY Mag about her role in the new puppet extravaganza, and her experience singing a song from her other big Disney film, "Enchanted," at the Oscars in 2008. Singing "Happy Working Song" all by her lonesome wasn't, exactly, happy work while it was happening.

"It's almost like I can't talk about it again," she laughed. "I don't know how I did that. It's the thing that was the most terrifying that I've ever done, and the thing I'm most proud of in my career."

Once it was over, Adams said, she didn't rush to see how she'd done.

"No, I watched it back once, but a lot later, because otherwise I would sort of relive the experience -- which was great, but at the same time, I was really nervous," Adams said. "I would do it again, though, if we could get Jason Segel up there dancing in a blue tuxedo."
