Kids say the darndest things, just ask Amy Adams.

During a Nov. 24 interview with Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Arrival star admitted that she tried a couple of instruments during quarantine that were gifted by her husband Darren Le Gallo. However, though she picked up a few musical hobbies, the Oscar nominee explained that they "didn't stick."

"I'm a big fan of string instruments, apparently. I tried the ukulele, the mandolin," the actress recalled. "My husband got me this beautiful cello for Christmas a couple years ago. Can't play the cello."

The 46-year-old shared that she tried a popular Billie Eilish song once, but her 10-year-old daughter Aviana Olea Le Gallo was not impressed.

"I tried to learn ‘Party Favor' by Billie Eilish," she said. "And my daughter was like, ‘Yeah, you can't—You're not allowed to sing Billie Eilish.'"

As for the reason behind the ambitious cello gift, Amy told host Seth Meyers that her husband was being supportive of her passion for string instruments that she "can't play."

Amy Adams' Best Looks

While on the late-night show, Amy also discussed her role as Bev Vance in the new Ron Howard-directed Netflix film Hillbilly Elegy, which also stars Glenn Close.

The film, based on the J.D. Vance memoir of the same name, focuses on three generations of the Appalachian Vance family and their journey through poverty, domestic abuse and addiction.

"I have a really huge sense of responsibility in playing somebody that's out there," Amy revealed, in reference to portraying someone who is still alive. "And I know she's going to be watching this. But she was incredibly courageous and she's doing really well, so that helps."

She continued, "I mean, like yeah, everything about it. Like coming up with the look. She was going through a really hard time, too, in the film, so again, I'm just really grateful for her participation."
