Amy Adams was born on Aug. 20, 1974 in Italy, where her father was stationed with the Armed Services. She made her big screen debut as a determined beauty pageant contestant in the comedy, "Drop Dead Gorgeous." Urged by co-star Kirstie Alley, Adams moved to Los Angeles, CA where she quickly landed a role in the cast of "Manchester Prep," a TV series prequel to the film "Cruel Intentions," where Adams played the first of a series of generic "mean girl" characters, but the series only became a straight-to-video feature, "Cruel Intentions 2."
Adams began to showcase her feisty personality with guest spots on "That 70's Show," "Charmed," and "Buffy, The Vampire Slayer," to name a few. Adams finally got some widespread attention for her onscreen pairing with Leonardo DiCaprio in Steven Spielberg's stylish con chronicle, "Catch Me If You Can." Adams then gave an outstanding performance in the critically acclaimed indie, "Junebug." Following in the wake of "Junebug," Adams - who seemingly came out of nowhere - landed in her first blockbuster, "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," where she played an assistant to the NASCAR racing protagonist, who memorably confesses her love for him in a bar and then consummates that love in one of the booths.
In early 2007, though by year's end, the actress found herself with another Academy Award nomination - this time for her starring role in Disney's "Enchanted." Director Kevin Lima first considered Adams for the role as an animated princess banished to the real life streets of New York because he thought her radiant, wholesome look seemed itself plucked from a classic Disney feature. But Adams brought more than that to the star-making role; she nailed the optimistic, guileless tone of the fantastical princesses of Disney's past.
She then co-starred in the Oscar-bait drama, "Doubt," adapted from Jon Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Adams was nominated for her second consecutive Golden Globe, this time for Best Supporting Actress in a dramatic motion picture. She also earned an Academy Award nod for the same category. Adams continued her hot streak with another winning performance in "Julie & Julia," playing Julie Powell, an author and blogger who chronicled her attempt to make all the recipes in Julia Child's famed cookbook, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking."
After starring alongside Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy in the long-awaited return of "The Muppets," it was announced Adams was cast as Lois Lane in the latest "Superman: Man of Steel" feature reboot of 2013, directed by Zack Snyder.
