Amy Adams turns 41 today, but she sure doesn’t look it! We think it’s thanks to that angelic face, and the sweet roles she played in Catch Me If You Can and Enchanted.

But it’s not just the sweet and charming that she’s tackled. Her career has been diverse, and she’s now become part of the superhero world by nabbing the role of Lois Lane in the latest version of Superman (a role she’ll reprise for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice).

In honour of her birthday, M-Net Movies is taking a look at a few fun facts about the actress, because we need something to keep us busy while we wait in anticipation for Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne’s alter egos to go up against each other.

  1. Amy was born in Italy, but grew up in Colorado with six siblings.
  2. How did you make extra cash as a teen? Amy worked at Hooters!
  3. Clearly that gig didn’t last long; because she also worked at The Gap.
  4. Her mother was a bodybuilder.
  5. We knew she’d been nominated for Oscars, but didn’t realise she’s been a nominee five times. Will there be a win in future?
  6. Emily Blunt is her best friend. The two actresses starred together in Sunshine Cleaning.
  7. If she could switch lives with anyone for a day it would be Oprah Winfrey.
  8. She once said that if she could have coffee with anyone from the past it would be Janice Joplin.
  9. Grace Kelly is her fashion icon.
  10. Gone with the Wind is her favourite movie, and Girls her favourite TV show.
