Amy Adams Was Too Drunk to Elope in Las Vegas
Actress Amy Adams and her now-husband Darren Le Gallo ruined their plans to elope in Las Vegas by getting too drunk. The Man of Steel star accepted her longtime boyfriend’s proposal in 2008, but it took them seven years to walk down the aisle, celebrating with a low-key ceremony in California last spring.
Adams, whose busy work schedule prompted them to delay their nuptials, has now revealed she and artist Le Gallo actually planned to run off to Sin City and tie the knot at one point during their long engagement. “We wanted to find a chaplain, go to the desert and get married at sunset,” she confessed to Marie Claire U.K. “But to be honest, we got too drunk. Then it was just not going to happen.” The couple, parents to five-year-old daughter Aviana, has been together for 14 years and Adams admits life as a newlywed has taken a little getting used to. “I definitely feel like I can’t make empty threats (now she’s married),” she continued. “Before, I could be like, ‘I’m just going to go down and get a hotel room, and I’m going (to) think this through!’ Though I’m making myself sound horrible to this poor, awesome guy. Relationships are hard. I think what I learned is, you just have to make a choice. Marriage is a choice.” The actress has shared few details about her 2015 wedding, but she previously insisted it would be a casual affair. “We both have a very specific idea that we want to do this ceremony in spring or fall, like in those months, but every time I’m busy working,” she told Allure magazine in 2013. “I want something very family-oriented and laid-back.”
