RANKED! The Most Memorable Amy Adams Roles (Ahead of ‘The Woman in the Window’)

Amy Adams is America’s new sweetheart. (Sorry, Julia Roberts.) But she’s more than just sweet; the Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated actress has proven herself as a heavyweight contender in film and on TV. Her acting chops, role versatility, and emotional range (not to mention her pin-up model beauty) have kept us captivated for two decades. This 45-year-old leading lady who trained as a ballerina and worked in musical theater before getting her big Hollywood break only gets better with age. Up next for Adams? A turn as Dr. Anna Fox, an agoraphobic psychologist who spies on a neighboring family — and witnesses something horrifying — in The Woman in the Window. While we wait for the film’s debut, here are the most memorable roles from Adams’ illustrious career.
