"I learned how to knit - Meryl Streep taught me," Amy told Kelly Clarkson on her daytime talk show.
Adams added: "She's a big knitter, she's very crafty. She did it in two parts - to sort of create a bonding experience between our characters, and also probably she felt sorry for me because I tend to be a bit energetic. So I'm sure she thought it was a great way for me to direct my energy instead of just skipping around in my (nun's) habit."
Knitting is not the only skill Adams took from the cine icon.
