Def Leppard to the rescue!

Amy Adams has shared in the past that she relies on her musical talents to help herself get into character — and as it turns out, the songs she chooses aren’t always exactly conventional.

On the SAG Awards red carpet, the 44-year-old actress, who’s nominated for her performances in Sharp Objects and Vice, revealed that she sang something a little on the raunchy side while dressed as Lynne Cheney.

“It’s one of the things I do to keep things light. I sing on most sets, but it was really fun to sing as Lynne Cheney,” the star told PeopleTV on Sunday, adding that her “go-to” song was “Pour Some Sugar on Me.”

To bring the former Second Lady to life alongside Christian Bale, who’s also nominated for a SAG Award for his portrayal of Dick Cheney, Adams even sported Lynne’s iconic bob.

Bale, on the other hand, had a more complicated relationship with the previous Halliburton CEO. When he won the Golden Globe for best actor, he sniped at the former vice president.

“Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play,” said Bale.
