->''"I didn't get into acting to have a moment, I got into it because of people who've inspired me, like Creator/JudiDench, Creator/HollyHunter, and Creator/JodieFoster."''

Amy Lou Adams is an American actress, born August 20, 1974. She started her career as a theater actress. Her first film role was in the 1999 BlackComedy ''Film/DropDeadGorgeous''. She laboured for years in minor roles and guest spots on TV shows - she can be spotted in episodes of ''{{Series/Charmed}}'', ''Series/TheWestWing'', ''{{Series/Smallville}}'' and even ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' (where she played Tara's racist cousin). Although Stephen Spielberg hoped getting cast in ''Film/CatchMeIfYouCan'' would spell big things for her, she actually did not work for a full year afterwards. When she was considering dropping out of acting, the script for an independent film called ''{{Film/Junebug}}'' fell into her lap. Her role earned a surprising Best Supporting Actress nomination. But it was her next project that catapulted her to superstardom.

When she was considering dropping out of acting, the 2005 script for an independent film ''Film/{{Junebug}}'', but called ''{{Film/Junebug}}'' fell into her lap. Her role earned a surprising Best Supporting Actress nomination. But it was her leading role in next project that catapulted her to superstardom.

''{{Film/Enchanted}}'',
Disney's 2007 musical ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' AffectionateParody of themselves, cast Amy as Giselle - the Disney Princess forced into the real world. Her knack for playing TheCutie did lead to her being slightly typecast afterwards - usually as NiceGirl characters or a ManicPixieDreamGirl. But working with David O Russell helped - directing her in films like ''Film/TheFighter'' and ''Film/AmericanHustle'' that made helped break her a star.

And she also played Tara Maclay's cousin in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.
out of her 'nice girl' image and show audiences her range. She now has five Oscar nominations and no win yet (but give it time) and is currently part of the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse as Lois Lane.

* MoeStare: A ''natural'' at doing this, which comes in handy when she's playing innocents.



* SpiritedYoungLady: As she's noted, she has a rather "traditional" view towards femininity and approach towards gender dynamics. On the other hand, when asked about "GirlyGirl or {{Tomboy}}", her answer was "Why not both?" As such, she's repeatedly expressed preference for heroines who are classically feminine, yet strong-hearted and intelligent. ([[Film/ManOfSteel Her portrayal of Lois Lane]] shows a nice example of this: A spirited and down-to-earth gal with a playful demeanor and rather "vulnerable" undertone to her personality.)
