Amy AdamsAmy Adams is a fan of the outfits her character donned in American Hustle, however she wouldn't wear them in real life.

The 39-year-old actress used double-sided tape to help maintain her modesty in a number of revealing outfits for her role as a former stripper in the 70s crime drama, and claims the sexy ensembles wouldn't be practical to wear in real life.

Amy, who has three-year-old daughter Aviana with husband Darren Le Gallo, told E News: "I would not wear most of those clothes in real life.

"There's just not enough double-sided tape to take me through my life as a mom with those V-necks."

The red-headed beauty insists she still had fun wearing her cleavage-bearing outfits as she the experience was liberating.

She explained: "It was really fun to wear and get to play a character who was empowered in those clothes. You have to have a laissez-faire attitude about it."

Amy also revealed an added benefit of the role was being able to sport a healthy glow as she had to apply plenty of fake tan.

She added: "The tan skin was fun because I have really, really pale skin. That made me feel a lot more confident."
