After her singing Cinderella role as the princess-turned-New Yorker in Enchanted and her similarly upbeat character in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, actress Amy Lou Adams, born August 20, 1974, was beginning to get typecast as “the girl with the sunny disposition,” but her role as the butt-kicking girlfriend of boxer boyfriend Micky Ward, played by Mark Wahlberg, in 2010’s The Fighter, showed that she can do a lot more than sing and dance.
She can also blog! She played a professional blogger in Julie & Julia. Not bad at all.
According to her four-legged co-stars, of which there are many now, after Enchanted and The Muppets, Amy’s long overdue for an Academy Award. This could be her year, too, but she’ll be up against two-time winner Miss Piggy, so who knows?
Of course, Amy does have an ace up her sleeve — her radical red hair. It might be just the thing she needs to capture the judges’ attention.
