In the Beginning

Amy Lou Adams was born in Veneto, Italy, and was the fourth of seven children to her American parents. Her father is a US Army veteran and was stationed nearby in Italy at the time of her birth. The Adams family settled back in the states in Colorado when she was just 8 years old. Raised in the Church of Latter-Day Saints, Adams claims to have been instilled with a value system that commands the Golden Rule and respect. In high school, Adams was gearing up to become a ballerina as she trained at a local dance company. At 18, she made the decision not to go to college. Rather, she moved to Atlanta with her mother to pursue a career as a ballerina. Ultimately, Adams realized that a career in Musical theater was more suited to her lifestyle and talent. While she pursued a career in theater, she supported herself by working at Gap and hostessing (briefly) at a Hooters.

Career Accomplishments

Adams launched her career in dinner theater until 1999, when she auditioned for a satirical comedy, “Drop Dead Gorgeous”. Shortly after starring in the film, Adams moved to Los Angeles and appeared on several series, such as, “That 70's Show”, “Charmed”, “The Office”, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “The West Wing”. Soon after, her film career took off as she was cast for a leading role alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in “Catch Me If You Can”. Though it was a huge role for Adams, she remained unemployed for the following year. She still considers this role as the biggest confidence booster for her, however, and credits it for some of the (delayed) success that would follow. A few years later, Adams decided to take the leading role in a low-budget film called “Junebug”; Adams won several awards for her performance in the movie, and was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award and an Academy Award. Disney film “Enchanted” would be the next big film for Adams and was a major commercial success for the actress. In 2008, Adams starred in “Doubt” alongside Meryl Streep, and was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at several big Award Shows for the following year. In 2010, Adams won awards for her performance in the movie “Fighter” alongside Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo. This movie was a turning point for Adams, as she was cast as a more gruff, less “Princess-y” part than her previous roles. Most recently, Adams portrayed Lois Lane in “Man of Steel”, and played alongside Christian Bale, Anderson Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in “American Hustle”. In 2014, Adams was named by Time Magazine as one of 100 Most Influential People.

Most Known For

Though she got a seemingly slow start to her acting career, Adam's supporting Oscar nominations, Golden Globe Awards, Academy Award and BAFTA nominations indicate that her work is very well known today. Specifically, “Junebug”, “Doubt”, “The Fighter” and “Enchanted” have earned her quite a seat among the best actresses today.

Where Is She Now?

Adams currently lives with her husband and daughter and continues to impress the nation with her acting career.
