Amy Adams (born August 20, 1974) is an American actress. She made her feature film debut with a supporting part in the 1999 satire Drop Dead Gorgeous, and her first major role was in Steven Spielberg's 2002 biopic Catch Me If You Can. After a breakthrough role as a loquacious pregnant woman in Junebug (2005), her first major success as a leading lady was in the 2007 musical Enchanted, in which she played a cheerful Disney Princess. She went on to play naive, optimistic women in a series of films. She played stronger female parts to positive reviews in The Fighter (2010) and The Master (2012), and in 2013 she began portraying Lois Lane in superhero films set in the DC Extended Universe. She won two consecutive Golden Globe Awards for playing a seductive con artist in American Hustle (2013) and Margaret Keane in Big Eyes (2014). Further acclaim came for playing a linguist in the science fiction film Arrival (2016) and a self-harming reporter in the miniseries Sharp Objects (2018). (Full article...)
