Oscar Nominee Chooses 7 for all Mankind

Oscar-nominee Amy Adams, seen here, left, on 22 May 2006, wears jeans on the NYC film set of “7 for all MankindEnchanted.” Adams (seen right at January’s Film Critics Awards), one of seven children, was born in Italy (dad was in the military), but raised in Colorado. She was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in JuneBug. Adams caught the public – and the industry’s fancy -- after the release of Steven Spielberg's smash hit Catch Me If You Can, in which she played Leonardo DiCaprio's adoring, airheaded fiance, Brenda.

Her other films include Drop Dead Gorgeous, Psycho Beach Party, Cruel Intentions 2, The Slaughter Rule, Pumpkin and Serving Sara. Upcoming film roles include The Last Run, the ensemble comedy Standing Still and Junebug. On television, Adams was seen in episodes of That '70s Show; Charmed; Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane; Providence; Buffy, the Vampire Slayer; Smallville; and The West Wing.
