Amy Adams and James Marsden sing "Let's' Misbehave"

Amy Adams and "Enchanted" co-star James Marsden attended the fourth annual "A Fine Romance" on November 9th -- the marriage between movies and Broadway, benefiting the Motion Picture and Television Fund.

The program launched with Jonathan Groff, then Kristin Chenoweth and Hugh Jackman duetted "Anything You Can Do" from "Annie Get Your Gun" from the stage into the audience -- preceded by the film's version. Neil Patrick Harris followed, as footage of Frank Sinatra's weddings to Ava Gardner, Mia Farrow, then Alan Cummings and a clip of the Rock Hudson wedding. Amy Adams and James Dearden convinced us on on "Let's' Misbehave." The incomparable Donna Murphy and Zachary Levi followed the footage of Jimmy Cagney carboning, "I"m a Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "Give My Regards to B'way."

The screens lit up with footage of "West Side Story," and Audra McDonald and John Lloyd Young convinced us we were in a B'way palace. Everyone delivered like it was opening night on the Great White Way. Catherine Zeta-Jones returned in a slinky silver gown to deliver "Can't Help Lovin' That Man of Mine" from "Showboat" as footage showed the showboat -- as I saw it filmed -- steaming through Lot 3 of MGM (now a retirement community). Victor Garber and Donna Murphy gave us a lotta "Little Night Music" to recall fondly. James Marsden a la Frank Sinatra was backed by a gorgeous chorus line and "I Could Write A Book." And we could write a rave. Kristin Chenoweth took us memorably to "The Little Shop Around The Corner." And "Carousel" made an auspicious turn with Audra McDonald and Hugh Jackman as "If I Loved You" was again loved by this 2008 audience.

A timely (Proposition 8) theme was noted by Mauceri as he introduced the "Hairspray" reprise with the energetic Elijah Kelly and a dancing chorus of 12. Katherine proved terrific tap terping as well and at 9:45 the entire cast finale'd to "That's Entertainment." It certainly was. The show was produced by Dan Jinks and Lauremce Mark. Adam Shankman directed and choreo'd...Wolfgang Puck's platoons served the pre- and post-party but Wolfie was not on hand, as he was helping his son Byron celebrate his Bar Mitzvah with his friends at the Pacific Design Center. The adults helped him launch the day at Spago after the religious service. Mazel tov.

Amy Adams is crowned "Queen of Shaba"

Variety reports that Amy Adams will star in the indie drama "Daughter of the Queen of Sheba" for producers Susan Cartsonis and Matt Williams (What Women Want).

The script, written by Karen Croner based on the bio of NPR correspondent Jacki Lyden, centers on how a woman uses her mother's madness and delusions to empower herself.

Lyden was NPR's first correspondent on the air in the aftermath of 9/11 and went to Afghanistan soon after the Taliban fell. She's working on a book about the secret lives of a small group of Iraqi friends and reported on the slaying of her translator by an American soldier.

"Doubt" to open AFI Festival 2008



An unfinished version of "Doubt", a period drama starring Amy Adams will replace "The Soloist", which Paramount pulled after moving the pic's release to March 2009, at the AFI Festival 2008.

The movie is still being finished, but we were so excited to show "Doubt" and help our friends at AFI FEST and the American Film Institute at the same time. We couldn’t possibly pass up the opportunity,” said Miramax president Daniel Battsek.

Amy Adams, Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman have all been invited to the Premiere. The AFI Festival runs October 30 - November 9.

OFF-TOPIC: this message is directed to Dan. I received your email and tried to reply twice but each time I got a failure delivery notice in return. Any idea why's that happening and how I could get back to you?

Amy Adams attends 2008 Journalists Awards


Amy Adams has just completed voice-over work in "Julie & Julia".

She is also expected to attend the 2008 Courage in Journalism Awards in Beverly Hills this evening. Red carpet arrivals start at 6:15pm.

Renee Zellweger, First Lady Maria Shriver and Eugene Robinson will be presenting. Christiane Amanpour is Mistress of Ceremonies.

Other celebrities in attendance include Maria Bello, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Diablo Cody, Kimberly Dozier, Diane English, Ginnifer Goodwin, Desiree Gruber, Angie Harmon, Catherine Maladrino, Rachel Nichols, Victoria Principal and Kerry Washington among others.

Amy Adams in talks for "Leap Year"

Just when we start to think Amy Adams is taking a break from acting (after all, there's a wedding coming up!), we hear about a new project. This one is not yet set in stone but negotiations are close to a deal says The Hollywood Reporter.

Amy is in talks with Spyglass Entertainment to star in "Leap Year", a romantic comedy about an uptight woman who travels to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend on leap day, February 29th.

Harry Elfont and Deb Kaplan ("Made of Honor") wrote the screenplay, though no director is on board. Shooting begins mid-February.

I'm so excited to hear that Amy is going to star in a new romantic comedy. I think she's great in this genre. Who would you want to be her male co-star in "Leap Year"? I'm voting James McAvoy or Darren LeGallo !

Amy Adams graces the Nov 08 cover of "Vanity Fair" with an hommage to Rita Hayworth in 'Cover Girl' and 'Gilda'. Click here to view the behind-the-scenes photoshoot video.

Amazingly, she nearly didn’t rise at all. Michael Shnayerson hears about her run of canceled shows and dropped parts, her decision to quit the business, and her fiancĂ©, actor Darren Le Gallo, who is handling Adams’s breakthrough like a true prince.

Amy at Chuck's Season 2 Launch Party

I apologize for the recent lack of updates! I've been very busy. Anyway, just a quick post to let you know that Amy Adams was in Las Vegas this weekend to support her actress-best friend Sarah Lancaster at Chuck's Season 2 Launch Party. Sarah and Amy both starred together in Cruel Intentions 2 and Dr Vegas. They look so cute!

Actor Matt Dallas has a crush on Amy Adams

This is a totally random story - but I thought you might be interested by it.

Julie Plec - producer of TV show "Kyle XY" - told the San Diego Comic-Con audience a very cute story about actor Matt Dallas (pictured left) yesterday afternoon.

She revealed that Amy Adams was Matt’s first celebrity crush. Julie tried to hook the two up, but unfortunately for him Amy already had a boyfriend. The crowd went "Awwwww......" when Julie said that. I wonder how Matt is going to react at the engagement news, lol.

Julie was with Matt when he first met Amy Adams while shooting "Enchanted" and he apparently completely fell in love with her.

Matt is currently filming the second season of "Kyle XY" in Canada. And before you ask, yes - it is in Vancouver where Amy is also filming "Night at the Museum 2" ;-)

Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo will marry in 2009

Wonderful news for Amy & Darren :)

USA Today has confirmed that the couple plans to marry sometime next year. Le Gallo supposedly proposed to Adams with a diamond by French jewelry designer Jean Dousset of Beverly Hills.

Most of us are obviously not surprised because we spotted the ring a couple of months ago but it's wonderful to hear the confirmation, isn't it? They both met in acting class six years ago.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Yesterday evening, Amy attended a Vanity Fair Party hosted by Louis Vuitton in Beverly Hills and she was litterarily glowing. More pictures to come.

Thank you very much to everyone who emailed me the news about Amy's engagement.

A golden encounter in Vancouver

Just in case some of you didn't read the comments posted after one of my recent blog entries ("Amy Adams dines out with Ben Stiller in Vancouver"), I'm re-posting below the cute story of Meg, who was lucky enough to meet Amy Adams in her store.

OK, here we go, first comment posted by Meg on July 13th:
"Amy Adams was shopping in my store today at Pacific Centre, she came in briefly yesterday and she was back again today in a nice blue dress, i could've talked to her! but she left so quickly!"

A couple of days later:
"I had a chance to talk to her TODAY!!! Amy came in to our store again during the afternoon (she's possibly staying in Four Seasons which is connected to the mall) but unlike the first couple times i saw her, she dressed very plainly and ...ordinarily so for a second there i almost doubted whether or not it was her, but when i had a chance to help her with a pair of shoes, i looked her in the eye and i saw the bags under her eyes, the pointy tip of her nose, (not in a bad way, she's very fair and beautiful in person) i knew it was her, (plus the red hair).

Unfortunately she didn't stay too long in the store because we didn't have the style of gold shoes she liked, although she was very polite and down to earth, no one would ever think she'd been an Oscar nominee. i wanted to acknowledge her quietly but didn't have a chance, however, im very happy that i finally spoke to her, oh so lovely".

Thank you very much Meg for sharing your lovely story with us!

Wicked movie officially confirmed by Universal Pictures

OK, I know I'm not the only 'Wicked' fan here (Amy herself is one of them in case you don't know!) and I thought you might be interested by the following press announcement released today by Universal Pictures. The producers have officially confirmed that a 'Wicked' movie is underway.

PLEASE LET THEM CONSIDER AMY FOR THE PART OF ELPHABA! We all know it's her dream role :) Although I suspect she would be more logically playing Glinda the Good if she ever was in the movie. Anyway-- I bet the producers would prefer Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth as they originated the roles on Broadway, so I don't think it will happen for Amy. Perhaps she will want to do a cameo and play a munchkin? Who knows! Here, here:

Marc Platt and Universal Pictures are taking formative steps toward a screen adaptation of "Wicked," the stage musical that Universal co-finances and Platt produces with David Stone.

After crossing the $1 billion mark in worldwide stage gross and opening its eighth production in Australia, "Wicked" has become one of the studio's most profitable investments and could follow a stage-to-screen track reminiscent of "Mamma Mia!" which U bows Friday.

Platt, who transitioned from U production prexy to producer under Stacey Snider and Ron Meyer, has been at the studio for a decade. While he remains close with Snider (who left to run DreamWorks), he said he's loyal to Meyer -- who championed U's investment in "Wicked" -- and has developed strong ties to U Pictures chairman Marc Shmuger, co-chairman David Linde and production president Donna Langley.

U brass has made it a priority to lock up their big suppliers, and Platt's pact follows longterm deals made by Imagine Entertainment and Working Title.

"Marc has strong commercial tastes, but so eclectic that you can't put him in a box or category," Langley said. "Our goal now is absolutely to make the 'Wicked' film, but much like Judy Craymer wouldn't give up screen rights to 'Mamma Mia!' until the stage show had reached its pinnacle, Marc and Stephen Schwartz are very mindful of the right timing. But we're dying to do it."

Platt, who produced the play with Stone and U, confirmed they are in early movie talks, and that book writer Winnie Holzman will write the script.

Amy Adams dines out with Ben Stiller in Vancouver

A big thank you goes to Jeff for informing us that Amy Adams and Ben Stiller were spotted dining out together at trendy Cioppino's restaurant in Yaletown recently.

Patrons inside recognized the stars, and ended up following them outside after dinner, where Stiller posed for pictures and signed autographs. The pair are in town working on the mega budget sequel "Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian".

Four join 'Night At The Museum' sequel

Are you as bored as I am? There was nothing exceptionally new on Amy Adams these last few weeks. She's still in Canada working on the sequel of 'Night at the Museum'. They're filming in studios so even if you're around Vancouver, your chances to meet one of the cast members is pretty slim.

Having said that, you might want to know that Christopher Guest, Jon Bernthal (Al Capone), Bill Hader (George Armstrong Custer) and Alain Chabat (Napoleon) all recently joined the cast of the movie. 'Night at the museum 2' is still scheduled for a May 22, 2009 release.

Amy Adams Birthday Project

Wow...things are awfully quiet on the Amy Adams front. I wish I had some new pictures or info to post here, but I don't. Amy wasn't at the UK Premiere of 'Miss Pettigrew lives for a day' so I presume she's still in Vancouver working on 'Night at the Museum 2'. Filming ends in Canada in September 08.

In the meantime, the lovely people at 'Amy Adams Fan' and the 'Meerkats' forum members have decided to launch a Birthday Project in the honor of Amy Adams to celebrate her upcoming 34th birthday.

"The point of this project is for fans from all around the world to gather together and make a collective and creative effort to wish our favorite actress a happy birthday. We are going to put together a Birthday Project that consists of your letters, poetry, fan art and photographs inspired by Amy Adams; perhaps to give something back for all of the amazing films and entertainment that she has provided us throughout the years. The book will be available electronically on this website and will also be mailed to Amy herself."

Amy Adams wins 'Best Actress' Saturn Award

Excellent news here -- Amy Adams took home the 'Best Actress' award at the Saturn Awards 2008, held yesterday evening at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Universal City.

"Enchanted" won two other major awards including 'Best fantasy film' and 'Best Music' which went to the legendary Alan Menken. Congratulations to Disney & the "Enchanted" team, but also kudos to the voters of the Saturn Awards who recognized their wonderful talent!

So far, I haven't seen any pictures from the event but I doubt Amy was there to receive her award. By the way, in case you didn't know, she is also nominated for a Teen Choice Award. The ceremony will air on Fox on August 4th, 2008. You can vote for Amy here.

The UK Premiere of 'Miss Pettigrew lives for a day' is tonight at the Edinburgh Film Festival so I hope Amy will be there with the cast & crew to present the movie!

I'm back online! WOO-HOO!!

Hello hello hello :)

Woo-hoo I'm finally back online!! I'd like to say a big thank you to you all for the very sweet messages and comments I received in the past two weeks. I recently moved from the UK to France and didn't have any online connection during quite a while. What a nightmare! I couldn't update this blog but, fortunately, it sounds like it was pretty quiet around Amy's world so you didn't miss much!

From now on, I'll be able to post more regular updates as I usually did -- promise ;) Thanks again for the support and lots of love to y'all!

Amy Adams joins Entertainment Weekly's next A-list

Hollywood is full of celebrities, but few stars. True film stardom--the power to draw huge crowds on opening weekend--has belonged to an elite few for decades. EW interviewed studio execs, producers, and agents to find out who is most likely to become the next Will Smith or Julia Roberts. It turns out Amy Adams and a new generation of actors (James McAvoy, Shia LeBeouf, Katherine Heigl, Anne Hathaway...) are jostling to join the A-list ranks!

Amy Adams


AGE
33

LAST SEEN IN
'Charlie Wilson's War' and 'Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day'

CAREER BOX OFFICE
$1.1 billion

ASKING PRICE
Over $4 million

There are few actresses that everyone in Hollywood seems to love, but right now Adams is everybody's sweetheart. "She's a total star," says one top talent agent. "She's really versatile. She can do comedy or drama, studio movie or weird indie. She's got it all."

After scoring an Oscar nom two years ago for her charmingly offbeat supporting role in the indie Junebug, Adams has proved the range and depth of her talent, tackling broad comedy (Talladega Nights), upscale drama (Charlie Wilson's War), and a mainstream family musical (Enchanted). That fairy-tale film, which earned $340 million worldwide, endeared her not just to girls, but to the industry.

"She has the most appealing nature," says one producer. "If Walt Disney had not created Snow White, Amy Adams would have been that person." Now she needs to stop sharing the screen with high-wattage stars and focus on becoming one herself.

NEXT
Back-to-back features with Meryl Streep: 'Doubt,' based on the Broadway play, and 'Julie & Julia,' an adaptation of the best-selling memoir.

Amy Adams walks back home after lunch

Amy Adams is increasingly paparrazied. Not sure if it's a good thing or not. I remember that she said in an interview she didn't necessarily mind because she knows that the most interesting thing photographers will find is for instance seeing her eating in a Mexican restaurant. She will never be caught with a 'hollywood diva-behaviour' (but we all knew that already, eh?). Anyways-- she is pictured below walking back home after having lunch on June 3, 2008.

The MTV Movie Awards fiasco!

Despite what the Los Angeles Times announced earlier yesterday, Amy Adams didn't show up at the MTV Movie Awards. I bet the nominees were told a few days before the show if they won or not.

Amy didn't win a single award (they went to Johnny Depp, Ellen Page and Briana Evigan & Robert Hoffman for, respectively, "Best Comedic Performance", "Best Actress" and "Best Kiss"). C'mon this is clearly a popular vote as opposed to a performance-related award!

In a way, I guess I'm glad she didn't show up because it would have been a total waste of time. In fact, she's probably being very professionnal as usual and chose to rehearse for "Night at the Museum 2" rather than go to this (useless) ceremony!

Cheer up Meerkats -- when the time comes, we'll definitely get our Amy Adams dose, but for more respected events :-) I'll post videos of "Standing Still" and "Cruel Intentions 2" in the days to come and we still have the "Miss Pettigrew lives for a day" European Premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival to look forward to. Amy's presence in Scotland has not been confirmed but I stopped trusting magazines/newspapers anyways coz they keep announcing that she will be there when in fact she's not coming (remember the American Idol fiasco?).

Altogether now: "Amy, we looooooooooooove you!!"

Amy Adams confirmed to attend MTV awards

Good news: the LA Times confirms that Amy Adams will attend the MTV Movie Awards on June 1. YAY -- how cool is that?

Do you think Amy will wear a very fancy dress at the event or jeans like at the Sundance Film Festival (see right picture)?

This year's MTV Movie Awards ceremony is hosted by Mike Myers. It's set to kick off live from the Gibson Ampitheatre in Universal City on Sunday at 8 p.m.

Amy, whatever happens tomorrow -- you're a total winner in our hearts!!

Amy Adams and Leelee Sobieski are fearless

There's an article about Amy Adams entitled "Lap Dance Duo" in a recent issue of Star Magazine. Thank you very much to the wonderful Tiffany for this!!

"Here's a double shocker. Not only are Amy Adams and Leelee Sobieski BFFs, but they also like to dance for their lovers! Amy and Leelee "downed shot after shot then got raunchy with their dates" at L.A.'s Green Door on May 8.

"They were fearless!" a source tells Star. Leelee did a lap dance for her boyfriend, Matt Davis, while Amy put on a show for her man, Darren Le Gallo.

"It's funny because Amy has this innocent image," says the source. "But they were, bumping and grinding like professionals!" Their guys were "thrilled and totally impressed," and the group didn't leave until 2 a.m".

"Dakota Fanning would play a good young me" says Amy

Ever wondered who would play Amy Adams in a movie of her life?

"I'm still young enough to play myself, but if I could cast me?" giggles Amy. "Oh, wow--I think Dakota Fanning would make a good young me. She just has to get a little more sarcastic."

Actress Amy Adams got her professional start as a dancer at Country Dinner Playhouse and Boulder's Dinner Theatre.

"She was this fantastic young talent," said Paul Dwyer, who performed with her at Country Dinner and is now its artistic director. "She was just like a ball of fire."

Adams did three shows at Country Dinner in the mid-'90s and waited tables as a Barnstormer. At Boulder's Dinner Theatre, Adams played Christine to Brian Norber's Al in "A Chorus Line". In the play, after Christine makes the first cut in auditions, she hugs her husband. One night, her fingernail plunged into Norber's cheek. He bled onstage.

"Don't think, at every party I'm at, I won't say (what happened) when someone brings up Amy Adams," Norber said.

Adams left Colorado in her early 20s. When she was a student at Douglas County High School, she didn't participate in drama.

"I was a dancer," she said. "I've definitely let it slip. My focus has been elsewhere of late."

Amy Adams in Psycho Beach Party (2000)

Here's a couple of videos from "Psycho Beach Party", filmed in 2000. Amy Adams shows off her dancing skills in the first video -- an absolute must see! EDIT: the sound doesn't seem to work in the second clip so I'm gonna try to upload it again. sorry about that!

video

The movie stars Lauren Ambrose as Florence Forrest, a not-so-innocent girl in 1960's Malibu who becomes "Chicklet" the first girl surfer at Malibu Beach, only Florence suffers from dissociative identity disorder and occasionally her alter ego Ann Bowman, a sexually aggressive, foul-speaking girl, comes out in which during that time several beach goers are found murdered.

Chorus girl Amy Adams attends opening night of musical

The revival of Broadway's 1975 breakout hit "A Chorus Line" welcomed Amy Adams among its first viewers at the big opening performance in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The groundbreaking musical “A Chorus Line” is played at the Ahmanson Theatre from May 22 to July 6, 2008. Amy is pictured on the left with cast members Nikki Snelson and Michael Gruber.

The show tells the story of 17 dancers auditioning for the chorus line of a new musical, and revealing their personal histories and innermost hopes and fears, praying for the opportunity to realize their lifelong dream – to dance on Broadway.

Boulder's Dinner Theatre remembers well Amy Adams when she joined the production of "A Chorus Line" after another actor was injured.

"She learned all the songs and dances by video," Kathryn Adams (Amy's mum) proudly explains. "When she went on stage, she hadn't had any time with the rest of the cast, and she was phenomenal."

Amy Adams was spotted during the evening chatting with George Takei, an American actor best known for his role in the TV series "Star Trek" and more recently for his appearance on "Heroes".

Amy was taking a break from her work on "A Night in the Museum 2". She's expected to fly to Canada very soon to finish her scenes.
