Join Us as We Explore the Many Faces of Amy Adams

3 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Earlier this month, we got a glimpse at Amy Adams in the upcoming Tim Burton film, Big Eyes, and it struck us just how different she looks from film to film.

And in still other films like The Fighter and Her, she is, for lack of a better word, kind of a mess. Don't believe us? Scroll down to see some of her most notable characters and how much she changed to turn into each one. »
