Amy Adams

Adams at an event for ''[[Nocturnal Animals]]'' in 2016 Amy Lou Adams (born August 20, 1974) is an American actress. Known for both her comedic and dramatic performances, she has been featured three times in annual rankings of the highest-paid actresses in the world. Her accolades include two Golden Globes, and nominations for six Academy Awards and seven British Academy Film Awards.

Born in Vicenza, Italy, and raised in Castle Rock, Colorado, Adams is the fourth of seven siblings. She trained to be a ballerina, but at age 18, she found musical theater a better fit, and from 1994 to 1998, she worked in dinner theater. She made her feature film debut with a supporting part in the 1999 satire ''Drop Dead Gorgeous''. After moving to Los Angeles, she made guest appearances in television and took on "mean girl" parts in small-scale features. Her first major role came in Steven Spielberg's 2002 biopic ''Catch Me If You Can'', opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, but she was unemployed for a year afterward. Her breakthrough came in the part of a loquacious pregnant woman in the 2005 independent film ''Junebug''.

The 2007 musical ''Enchanted'', in which Adams played a cheerful princess, was her first major success as a leading lady. She followed it by playing naïve, optimistic women in a series of films such as the 2008 drama ''Doubt''. She subsequently played stronger parts to positive reviews in the sports film ''The Fighter'' (2010) and the psychological drama ''The Master'' (2012). In 2013, she began portraying Lois Lane in superhero films set in the DC Extended Universe. She won two consecutive Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress for playing a seductive con artist in the crime film ''American Hustle'' (2013) and the troubled painter Margaret Keane in the biopic ''Big Eyes'' (2014). Further acclaim came for playing a linguist in the science fiction film ''Arrival'' (2016), a self-harming reporter in the HBO miniseries ''Sharp Objects'' (2018), and Lynne Cheney in the satirical film ''Vice'' (2018).

Adams's stage roles include the Public Theater's revival of ''Into the Woods'' in 2012, in which she played the Baker's Wife. In 2014, she was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by ''Time'' and featured in the ''Forbes'' Celebrity 100 list. She is married to actor and artist Darren Le Gallo, with whom she has a daughter. Provided by Wikipedia
