Name:
Amy Adams

DOB: August 20, 1974

Background: Adams was born in Italy, the fourth of seven children, and traveled with her serviceman father from base to base before the family settled in Colorado. She sang professionally in restaurants and had hoped to become a ballerina, but she pursued musical theater instead after graduating high school.

Filmography: Her first film was 1999's "Drop Dead Gorgeous." She also appeared in "Manchester Prep," a failed pilot that eventually was released on video as "Cruel Intentions 2." After guest-starring roles on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Smallville," and "The West Wing," she gained attention for her supporting role in Steven Spielberg's "Catch Me If You Can" (2002). But her breakthrough would come three years later in the indie drama "Junebug," which earned her an Oscar nomination and made her a star. In the years since she has balanced serious dramas ("Doubt") with independent films ("Sunshine Cleaning"), and comedies ("Talladega Nights," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian"). She starred in the Disney musical comedy "Enchanted," and the period romance "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day." She also starred in "American Hustle," "The Muppets," "On the Road," and "Man of Steel."
