* 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?" ([[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.)

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.

* PlayingAgainstType: In ''Film/TheFighter'', where she trades in her innocent persona for a sexy, no-bull, tough-as-nails lass who isn't afraid to [[LetsGetDangerous throw down]] or swear. Like the film itself, her role received a lot of praise. Her ice-cold LadyMacbeth character in ''Film/TheMaster''[[note]] (a character who, interestingly enough, disturbed even AMY) [[/note]] is an even more dramatic example, as well as her scheming, conniving turn in ''Film/AmericanHustle''. [[note]] Though in this case, there's a strong undertone of emotional innocence--albeit [[BreakTheCutie broken]]--in Sydney, which arguably adds to the tragedy of her character.... [[/note]]
--> ''(To Creator/DavidORussell, during Amy's 2014 Golden Globe speech)'' Thank you so much for letting the world know that a [[Film/{{Enchanted}} princess]] [[Film/TheFighter can punch]] and [[Film/AmericanHustle wear a low-cut gown.]]



* [[PromotedFanboy Promoted Fangirl]]: She grew up a fan of the old Superman films, and constantly auditioned for the role of Lois Lane. After several misses (though she once played [[MonsterOfTheWeek Jodi Melville]] in an episode of ''Series/{{Smallville}}''), she finally landed the role for ''Film/ManOfSteel'', which made her very happy.



* StarMakingRole: Her well-received leading role in Disney's ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'', which became a breakout hit, instantly turned her into a star. Though before, she had managed to receive an Oscar nomination for ''Junebug''. Such a situation isn't exactly uncommon, however, as several actors have received respect from the Academy before becoming more familiar to audiences in sweeping, broad hits (Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio and Creator/KateWinslet managed to earn nominations before ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'' had come out, after all).
* ThoseTwoActors: Apart from Amy Adams, who else links ''Film/CharlieWilsonsWar,'' ''Film/{{Doubt}}'' and ''Film/TheMaster''? Why, Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman.
* TomHanksSyndrome: Her films in TheNewTens with the sole exception of ''Film/TheMuppets'' have been DarkerAndEdgier. That being said, her films [[StarMakingRole pre]]-''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' were usually {{Dramedy}} or/and BlackComedy.

* TheCastShowoff:
** Before becoming a film actress, she worked in theater (more specifically, dinner theater), making her an easy fit for the singing and dancing required for ''Film/{{Enchanted}}''
** Later, the filmmakers of ''Film/TheMuppets'' gave her a golden opportunity to shine in a GratuitousDiscoSequence.



* TheDanza: Miss Adams's character in ''Film/{{Her}}'' is called Amy.
* DyeHard: Despite being best known as a FieryRedhead, she's a natural blonde.
