Actress Amy Adams appeared in a string of small television roles after her film debut, Drop Dead Gorgeous originally introduced her to audiences. Later the independent film, Junebug widened her acclaim and ably demonstrated that she was an up-and-comer to watch.
She worked with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg's' Catch Me If You Can, and again with Hanks & Julia Roberts in Charlie Wilson's War. However it was her turn as an animated princess brought to life in 2007's Enchanted that finally helped establish her as a true star. Amy garnered even more recognition in 2008's Doubt and has appeared this year in Sunshine Cleaning, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (as aviatrix Amelia Earhart) and is currently in theaters alongside Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia.
I caught her appearance on the David Letterman show this week and was struck by how sexy and engaging she can be. Amy was wearing a red dress that showed off her outstanding legs and it really made me jealous of her fiance, in fact I wondered why the guy had waited so long to propose (they had been together over six years). Anyway, Ms. Adams is one of the better actresses of her generation and hopefully she will continue to dazzle us in great movies.
For today, the Catacombs salutes her as our latest "Gal" Friday!
