Amy Adams was born on August 20, 1974 in Vicenza, Veneto, Italy, the fourth of seven children of American parents. Adams was raised in the LDS Church. Regarding her religious upbringing, Adams said, "I can't speak for everybody, but I know it instilled in me a value system I still hold true. The basic 'Do unto others ...'—that was what was hammered into me. And love."
From 2000 Adams guest-starred on television series such as That '70s Show, Charmed, The Office, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville and The West Wing.
Since 1999, Adams has appeared in over forty feature films including Catch Me If You Can (2002), Junebug (2005), Enchanted (2007), Julie and Julia (2009), The Muppets (2011), Man of Steel (2013), American Hustle (2013), and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
