Amy Adams banned from 'shaping up`

Los Angeles: Hollywood beauty Amy Adams was banned from hitting the gym before donning a lingerie to film steamy love scenes with actor Mark Wahlberg for her upcoming movie `The Fighter`.

The Oscar nominee says she was conscious to pose in front of the camera in sexy underwear and wanted to tone up before shedding her clothes, Parade magazine reported. However, director David O Russell forced the

`Enchanted` star to shed her insecurities as he wanted to ensure that her character Charlene, a working-class barmaid, was as realistic as possible.

"David said, `This is kind of how we see her dressing (in lingerie).` And I said, `I`m getting in a gym, `cause there`s no way I`m going to end up not looking my best.` (But) he said, `I want you to look like a girl who drinks beer!`," said the 36-year-old actress.
