Amy Adams – Famed Actress
Adams discovered her passion for acting when studying to become a ballerina, becoming involved with local theater. Onstage performances allowed her to feel free and gain the adrenaline rush necessary for fulfilling her dreams of becoming a dancer.
Adams first made her mark as Lois Lane in 2013’s Man of Steel film and earned her international acclaim and numerous award nominations. Adams continued her impressive performances in sports drama The Fighter, psychological thriller Doubt and comedy American Hustle – each time garnering critical acclaim from critics.
Early Life and Education
Born in Vicenza, Italy to Kathryn and Richard Adams – American parents from Philadelphia – she moved around often due to Richard’s military service career. Singing in her local choir and training ballet dancer were among her many pursuits until she decided that performing arts were indeed for her.
As her film debut, she appeared in Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can (2002); however, Junebug (2005) proved the catalyst to her breakthrough success. This movie depicted the discontent among members of a Southern family and earned her an Academy Award nomination for playing Ashley (naive wife). Since then she has appeared in other projects like David O. Russell’s The Fighter as well as Man of Steel (2013) and reprised her role of Lois Lane from Batman V Superman (2016) to critical acclaim with Big Eyes which saw her playing Margaret Keane (painting artist Margaret Keane).
Adams realized acting was her true calling during high school and took part in choir and ballet dance classes before going on to appear in local and regional dinner theater productions in Boulder, Colorado and Chanhassen, Minnesota, honing her craft each time out.
Adams quickly rose to stardom as both an actress and television star. She appeared as a linguist in Arrival and Lynne Cheney in Vice. Additionally, Adams played an art gallery owner in Tom Ford’s stylish thriller Nocturnal Animals as well as being cast in HBO drama Sharp Objects as a self-destructive reporter.
Ama Adams provides legal and enforcement counsel on international trade regulations, such as export controls and economic sanctions laws. She frequently handles pre- and post-acquisition due diligence reviews, license requests, investigations, and matters concerning any alleged violations of trade laws.
Achievement and Honors
Adams received several honors in 2013 for her portrayal of Lois Lane in Man of Steel: Golden Globe Award, Critics’ Choice Awards nomination and Academy Award nomination. Additionally she appeared as a con artist in David O. Russell’s American Hustle film as well as Spike Jonze’s Her where she played neighbour to an intelligent computer operating system.
She garnered three Oscar nominations – one BAFTA and two additional Oscar nods – for her performances in John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt and Nora Ephron’s Julie and Julia, among other films, with awards going as far back as Disney’s Enchanted, The Master, Trouble With the Curve, and Charlie Wilson’s War.
She is widely-renowned in Hollywood and was honored to receive numerous high honors throughout her career, such as co-founding Baby2Baby – a charity organization supporting children in need backed by Hollywood celebrities – this year (17).
Adams initially dreamed of becoming a ballet dancer as she was growing up; however, after dropping out of high school to pursue acting and land her first role (Drop Dead Gorgeous) in late 90s black comedy cult classic, she quickly made it big time and eventually earned an Academy Award nod for playing a slightly ditzy pregnant charmer with great depth of empathy and wisdom in Junebug (2005).
Adams has distinguished herself with her versatility as an actress by appearing in everything from hard dramas and prestige comedies to cutting-edge fare like Batman v Superman and American Hustle. What sets Adams apart, however, is her fluid transitions between different polarities: She played Disney princess in Enchanted; an invited government linguist in Arrival; and determined baseball fan in Trouble with the Curve. Adams also has an older brother Eddie who works in comedy as well.
Amy Adams has enjoyed great success as an actress. Her films such as Man of Steel, American Hustle and Arrival have grossed considerable amounts worldwide.
Beginning her entertainment industry career as a dancer for musical theater productions, the actress soon secured small roles on television shows and films before finding success with 2005 independent film Junebug which earned critical acclaim and nominated for an Academy Award nomination.
She owns numerous expensive assets including a luxurious home in Beverly Hills and an extensive art collection, and regularly supports charitable causes. With an estimated net worth of $25 Million and other financial data such as annual salaries, contracts endorsements earn outs etc, there’s much to see on this financial landscape of Jennifer Garner.
