The "Today" show cut an interview with actress Amy Adams after Adams said she didn’t want to discuss the Sony Entertainment hacking scandal.

"As a news program, the ‘Today’ show doesn't allow guests to put restrictions on interviews," a ‘Today’ show spokesperson said in a statement to ET. "In this case, after hours of discussion we felt uncomfortable with the demands being made and we determined the best course of action for all parties involved was to cancel the interview."

Adams was set to appear on the show during a visit to New York to promote the film “Big Eyes,” which opens on Christmas Day.

Adams was in NBC’s green room when she was told she would be asked about the Sony scandal, the New York Post’s Page Six reported.

“Amy said she didn’t want to contribute to the media coverage of it ... then she was abruptly told that her interview with ‘Today’ was canceled. She was shocked and upset,” an unnamed source told Page Six.

The Weinstein Company, which produced "Big Eyes," said in a statement: "We firmly stand behind Amy Adams. We've been lucky enough to have had her talents grace several of our films. We are certain her fellow actors and directors would all agree, she is nothing but the consummate professional both on and off set."

Adams was mentioned in emails leaked by the Sony hackers that revealed women made less on than their male co-stars in "American Hustle."

Twitter users expressed mixed reactions.
