Amy Adams says there's more to beauty than make-up.

The 'Trouble with the Curve' actress believes it's important that women feel comfortable in their own skin and don't rely on lots of cosmetics to make them feel good about themselves.

Speaking in a behind-the-scenes video taken on the set of her campaign for Lacoste's new fragrance Eau de Lacoste, which was published on Grazia Daily, said: ''I think beauty comes from many sources with women. I think it's important to look beyond make-up and the other sources that women put on and look at a woman to see who they really are. A woman in her natural state is at her most beautiful. Someone who embodies that confidence of self acceptance is more beautiful than anything.''

The mother-of-one also says when it comes to her own style she likes to look ''functional yet very chic''.

She said: ''I don't want to look like I'm trying too hard, but at the same time I want to look elegant, feminine and as natural as possible. That's really important to me, especially now, since being a mom. I want to look functional yet very chic.''
