Amy Adams is one of the highest paid American actresses who, starting with musical theatre, debuted on the big screen in the 1999 black-comedy 'Drop Dead Gorgeous'. While she had a major role opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Steven Spielberg's 2002 biopic 'Catch Me If You Can', her breakthrough role was portraying a loquacious pregnant woman in the 2005 independent film 'Junebug'. One of her early successful films was the 2007 Disney musical 'Enchanted'.
Some of her best roles saw her portray naive women like Sister James in 'Doubt' (2008), as well as stronger women like Charlene Fleming in the sports film 'The Fighter' (2010) and Peggy Dodd in the psychological drama 'The Master' (2012) – all of which earned her Oscar nominations. She received two consecutive 'Golden Globe Awards' for playing the seductive con artist Sydney Prosser in the black-comedy crime-film 'American Hustle' (2013) and for portraying the troubled painter Margaret Keane in the biopic 'Big Eyes' (2014).
Her recent filmography includes lead roles in the sci-fi film 'Arrival' and the psychological thriller 'Nocturnal Animals'. She portrayed Lois Lane in the top grossing superhero films 'Man of Steel' (2013), 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' (2016), and 'Justice League' (2017).
