I adore Amy Lou Adams. She's an Italian-born actress (4th of 7 children) who started her acting career in dinner theatres, which I think is wonderful! Her first film was Drop Dead Gorgeous in 1999. Then she was cast as Brenda Strong with Leonardo Dicaprio in Catch Me If You Can in 2002. Junebug was next in 2005 and she received the award for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars.
Since then, she's starred as Giselle in Enchanted (I loved it, it's gorgeous) for which she received a Golden Globe Award nomination. Then the year after, Amy won her second Oscar for her role as Sister James in Doubt.
Recently, I saw her in Sunshine Cleaning with Emily Blunt (see my older posts) and thought they were both wonderful performances. I also love the fact that Amy used to work at Hooters. That's fantastic!!
