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.

She's got box office clout, no doubt of that. She clearly proved it when Miss Pettigrew became such a hit w/ moviegoers too. She held her own in the film against a more seasoned actor and, boy, did she shine too bright i forgot the theatre had it's lights killed:)

It's about time she gets the well deserved recognition. I was so proud for her Oscar nod for Junebug. I think this movie and Enchanted proved that Amy can carry a movie on her own. Seems about time that the world realizes that.

Awesomeness.
