The *Very* Weird Way Amy Adams Lightened the Mood on the Set of ‘Sharp Objects

We’ve brought the sleepless night upon ourselves, but the HBO adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects is too good to look away. And while we love being absolutely creeped out by Patricia Clarkson’s character ripping her own eyelashes out, flashbacks to Camille Preaker’s (Amy Adams) dark past, and the disturbing small-town pig-farm scenes (what the hell is going on there?), we’re starting to notice the bags under our eyes.

So how did the cast of the show deal with being immersed in the heavy, dark, psychologically draining material of the show’s plot? With a fart machine, of course.

Amy Adams told The View on Tuesday that she was in the habit of bringing in a fart machine (yep, you read that right) to the set of Sharp Objects in order to keep everyone from being weighed down by the bleak subject matter.

“It’s such an unexpected break and release!” she told the talk show hosts.

It sure is, Amy. It sure is.
