Amy Adams in The Fighter

In The Fighter, Amy Adams plays Charlene, Micky Ward's iron-willed new girlfriend who convinces him to do the unthinkable: split with his family, pursue his own interests and train without his increasingly volatile and criminal brother.

Amy Adams (Charlene Fleming) is a two time Academy Award nominated actress who has built an impressive list of credits. She earned her first Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in Kevin Lima's Enchanted opposite Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Idina Menzel, and Susan Sarandon, as a princess forced from her traditional animated world into the live action world of New York City.

She gained critical acclaim for her role opposite Meryl Streep in Nora Ephron's Julie and Julia as a frustrated temp secretary who embarks on a yearlong culinary quest to cook all 524 recipes in Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." This was the second time she played opposite Streep. The two starred together in John Patrick Shanley's Doubt opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman. For her role as a young nun, Adams received her second Academy Award nomination as well as Golden Globe, SAG, BAFTA and Critic's Choice award nominations for her performance.

Her first Academy Award nomination came for her role in Phil Morrison's Junebug in 2005, a performance that earned her a SAG Award, an Independent Spirit Award, a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award, a National Society of Film Critics Award, a San Francisco Film Critics Society Award, as well as the Breakthrough Gotham Award. Adams also won the Special Jury Prize for Acting at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival for her role as the pregnant, childlike 'Ashley,' who is awe-struck by the arrival of her glamorous sister-in-law.

Adams starred as Amelia Earhart who comes to life to help security guard Larry (Ben Stiller) to restore order to the museum in Shawn Levy's Night At The Museum 2: Battle at The Smithsonian. She also starred in Anand Tucker's Leap Year as a woman who stages upscale apartments in Boston and leaves nothing to chance in her personal life. She also starred opposite Emily Blunt and Alan Arkin in Christine Jeff's and Karen Moncrieff's Sunshine Cleaning, a dark family comedy film about two lost sisters who find themselves after starting an unlikely business in crime-scene-cleanup. Her other film credits include: Mike Nichols' Charlie Wilson's War opposite Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and Phillip Seymour Hoffman; Bharat Nalluri's Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day opposite Frances McDormand; Adam McKay's Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby with Will Ferrell; Clare Kilner's The Wedding Date with Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney; Steven Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio; Reginald Hudlin's Serving Sara; Anthony Abrams' Pumpkin, and Michael Patrick Jann's Drop Dead Gorgeous.
