TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE

AMY ADAMS (Mickey) is a three-time Academy Award nominee, whose impressive body of work ranges from major studio hits to acclaimed independent features.

Following "Trouble with the Curve," she stars this fall in Paul Thomas Anderson's 1950s-set drama "The Master." Adams also stars as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's much-anticipated action adventure "Man of Steel," which brings Superman back to the big screen in June 2013. Among her other upcoming films, she stars in an as-yet-untitled near-future film for director Spike Jonze; the comedy-drama "Lullaby"; and a political drama to be directed by David O. Russell. In addition, she is set to produce and star in "Object of Beauty," based on the book by Steve Martin.

On the stage, Adams starred this summer in "Into the Woods," a presentation of Shakespeare in the Park, at the Delacorte Theater. Adams earned her first Oscar nomination for her performance in the 2005 indie film "Junebug." In addition, she garnered a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nomination and won an Independent Spirit Award, as well as a number of critics group awards for her work in that film.

She received her second Academy Award nomination for her role in John Patrick Shanley's 2008 thought-provoking drama "Doubt," in which she starred with Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Adams' performance in the film as the conflicted Sister James also brought her Golden Globe, BAFTA Award and SAG Award nominations

Last year, Adams was honored with her most recent Oscar nod for her work in David O. Russell's true-life drama "The Fighter," in which she starred with Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale. For her portrayal of the tougher-than-she-looks bartender, Charlene, she was also recognized with Golden Globe, BAFTA Award, and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations.

Her recent film credits also include the family hit "The Muppets"; the romantic comedy "Leap Year"; the comedy "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," with Ben Stiller; and Nora Ephron's "Julie & Julia," playing real-life blogger Julie Powell, with Meryl Streep portraying legendary chef Julia Child.

In 2007, she delighted moviegoers in Kevin Lima's musical hit "Enchanted," earning a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for her performance as the displaced, would-be fairy tale princess, Giselle. Adams had first caught the attention of critics and audiences when she co-starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in Steven Spielberg's fact-based drama "Catch Me If You Can."

Her additional film credits include "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day"; "Sunshine Cleaning," opposite Emily Blunt; Mike Nichols' "Charlie Wilson's War," with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts; and Adam McKay's "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," with Will Ferrell.
