Amy (Lou) Adams stars in the Walt Disney Pictures fantasy animated/live action film Enchanted (2007). The film is about a princess going from cartoon to real life New York City, and co-stars Patrick Dempsey, Susan Sarandon, James Marsden and Idina Menzel!

This pretty 5’3 1/2″ petite actress (born on August 20, 1974) was discovered by a movie producer while working at the famous dinner theater in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Shortly after she was cast in her first comedic role in Drop Dead Gorgeous. She has appeared in the films Cruel Intentions 2 (2000), Catch Me If You Can (2002) and Talladega Nights (2006)

She received critical acclaim for her role in the 2005 film Junebug and was awarded for the role the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, the National Society of Film Critics award for “Best Supporting Actress” and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Female. She was also nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture and, in January 2006, Adams was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the role. The Academy invited Adams to become a member in 2006.
