“[Brad] came on the set one day. I was wondering why all the girls had lip gloss and were skipping to set,” she explained. “I walk onto set, and I had just been diagnosed with pink eye. I walk onto set and I’m like, ‘What’s everyone so happy about?'”

During the visit, he went to greet Adams, “All of a sudden I see Brad Pitt. You think he’s going to move in slow motion and you imagine yourself looking really pretty in a white nightgown.”

She added, “But that wasn’t the case. I was in my fat suit with pink eye.”

But when Pitt went in for a hug, Adams quickly rejected him, “He was so sweet. He was like, ‘Oh, it’s so good to see you.’ He went to give me a hug and then I realized, I can’t hug him, I have pink eye.”

“I was like, ‘No, no!’ And in that moment, I became the first woman in history to reject a hug from Brad Pitt,” she continued. “Luckily, he was very gracious. I was like, ‘I’m contagious.'”

Adams plays Cheney’s wife Lynn in the new film which hits the big screen Dec. 25.
