She followed it by playing naive, optimistic women in a series of films, including the 2008 drama Doubt.

She subsequently played stronger female parts to positive reviews in the sports film The Fighter (2010), and the psychological drama The Master (2012).

Although she competed in track and gymnastics, she harbored ambitions of becoming a ballerina and trained as an apprentice at the local David Taylor Dance Company.

The job required her to wait on tables before getting up on stage to perform.

Amy Lou Adams (born August 20, 1974) is an American actress.

She is known for both her comedic and dramatic performances, and as of 2017 is among the highest-paid actresses in the world.

Morrison was impressed by Adams' ability to not question her character's inherently good motives.

Tim Robey of The Daily Telegraph labeled the film a "small, quiet miracle" and wrote that Adams had given "one of the most delicately funny and heartbreaking performances it's ever been my pleasure to review".

She trained to be a ballerina, but at age 18 found musical theater a better fit, and from 1994 to 1998 she worked in dinner theater.
