Amy Adams

Amy Adams

Amy Adams is one of those actresses who seems to be in everything lately. The redhead made her breakthrough with her emotional performance in the 2005 independent film ‘Junebug.’ After that, the roles started falling into her lap. She played the real-life version of Princess Giselle in Disney’s ‘Enchanted,’ a blogger obsessed with chef Julia Childs in ‘Julie & Julia,’ Amelia Earhart in ‘Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian,’ and even Lois Lane in the latest Superman flick ‘Man of Steel.’ Adams has quite the acting range, and her roles are so varied that one could never accuse her of being typecast at any point in her career. She’s been nominated for several Academy Awards, and she’s been lucky enough to work alongside many of the greats, such as Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Will Ferrell, and best of all, the Muppets.
