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