An actress with a knack for light comedy, Amy Adams has an estimated net worth of $8 Million. She was born in Italy and raised in Castle Rock, Colorado. After high school, she studied dance and worked in regional dinner theater until age 20, when she moved to Minnesota with her family after being spotted by a visiting Minneapolis producer and recruited to work in his dinner theater there. She landed her first film role in the satiric 1999 comedy Drop Dead Gorgeous, which was, appropriately enough, set in Minnesota. After appearing in the independent comedy Psycho Beach Party, Adams made guest appearances on a number of television series, including That 70s Show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The West Wing; she was also cast as a regular in Manchester Prep, a TV spin-off of the hit film Cruel Intentions. Manchester Prep, however, was never aired when its network decided that the show’s sexual content was too strong for television, although several episodes were eventually re-edited into a direct-to-video feature entitled Cruel Intentions 2. 2002 proved to be a very busy year for Adams, who appeared in no fewer than four features, including the eagerly anticipated Catch Me if You Can, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.
Amy Adams has been cast in the coveted role of Lois Lane in the upcoming “Superman” film, a rep for the actress told Access Hollywood.
The 36-year-old star, who was recently bestowed with her third Academy Award nomination (for “The Fighter”), will join “The Tudors” actor Henry Cavill in director Zack Snyder’s superhero reboot.
Adams had a musical hit with the 2007′s Disney-produced Enchanted, which grossed $340 million.
