Video – Amy Adams Roughs It Up in The Fighter

In Amy Adams’s biography on her IMDb page she’s described as
an actress who “often plays optimistic characters with cheerful dispositions.” In her latest film, The Fighter, directed by David O. Russell (I Heart Huckabees, Flirting With Disaster), Adams plays against that sunny type
as Charlene Fleming — the scrappy local bartender and love interest of Lowell,
Massachusetts, boxer Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg). Charlene goes toe-to-toe with Ward’s tight-knit family to help the amateur boxer break away from their dysfunctional grip so that he’ll
have a better shot at becoming a professional titleholder. Along the way, she gets in a fistfight with Ward’s seven sisters and goes several rounds verbally brawling with Ward’s salty mother (Melissa Leo).

Adams told AMC News correspondent Jacob Soboroff that she
loved playing Charlene and that, contrary to popular belief, she does have an
inner tough girl, saying, “It’s maybe not what I lead with, but she lives
inside me somewhere.”
