Rumors suggest that Amy Adams gained weight for her character in the movie Dear Evan Hansen which was released in 2021. However, she has not made any remarks and there is no sufficient evidence over the internet that can relate to the weight gain rumor. Hence, she reportedly didn't gain weight for that movie. Follow to know more about Amy Adams' appearance as well as the latest weight gain update on her upcoming new movie, Nightbit*h.
Amy Lou Adams (born August 20, 1974) is an actress from the United States. She is well-known for her humorous and tragic parts, and she has appeared three times on the annual rankings of the world's highest-paid actresses. Similarly, Amy Adams has won several awards, including two Golden Globes, and has been nominated for six Academy Awards, seven British Academy Film Awards, and two Primetime Emmy Awards.
Meanwhile, Adams began her career as a dinner theater dancer, which she pursued from 1994 to 1998, then made her film debut in the dark comedy Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) in a supporting role. She also made television appearances and played mean girl roles in low-budget feature pictures. However, her breakthrough performance came in Steven Spielberg's movie Catch Me If You Can (2002).
Similarly, Amy Adams' first breakthrough as a leading actress came with the musical fantasy film Enchanted (2007), in which she played a happy princess-to-be. She then played other naive, optimistic ladies in films such as the drama Doubt (2008), before moving on to more aggressive roles in the sports picture The Fighter (2010) and the psychological thriller The Master (2012).
Amy Adams later played a heartbroken mother in Dear Evan Hansen in 2020, a cinematic adaption of the Broadway musical of the same name, which was critically panned. Meanwhile, in the film, she appeared much fatter than she used to be, which surprised the audience. And she was also rumored that she gained weight just to fit in a character. As a result, many people have been curious about the movie and have wondered if she actually gained weight for it.
Amy Adams Reportedly Didn’t Gain Weight for Evan Hansen: The Actress Was Definitely Overweight at the Time but She Didn’t Gain It on Purpose for the Movie; Nightbit*h Update!
Amy Adams (@amyadams) played Cynthia Murphy, the hearth broke mother of Connor and Zoe Murphy, who was played by Colton Ryan (Little Voice) and Kaitlyn Dever (Unbelievable) respectively in the movie, Dear Evan Hansen. Meanwhile, she was rumored that she underwent a weight gain journey and a major makeover for the role of a mother of teenagers to become the character, making her practically unrecognizable.
As a result, many fans and followers have praised her for her dedication to her character. Likewise, she was also rumored that she was pregnant at that time due to her being overweight. The Nightb*tch actress did appear to be overweight at the time but she wasn't pregnant. And yes, she didn't intentionally gain weight for her role in the movie as well.
However, compared to her previous and current photos, Amy Adams has kept her body in good shape and appears gorgeous. Meanwhile, she still has some body fat, although not as much as in the film Dear Evan Hansen.
Dear Evan Hansen tells the story of a young man dealing with social anxiety who accidentally becomes involved in an intricate deception after the family of a classmate who committed suicide misidentifies one of Hansen's letters as their son's suicide note. As Hansen gets the affection and acceptance he deserves, he struggles with telling his family the truth.
There is no proof that Amy Adams gained her weight just to fit into the character. She might have used a wig and prosthetics to achieve Cynthia’s appearance. However, she was definitely not pregnant at that time. Meanwhile, she also hasn't talked very openly about it on social media, so it's likely to say that it's just a rumor that people made up for their own satisfaction.
Anyway, she has given the best performance of her life in the movie, which should be praised by all of us. It doesn't matter even if she had gained weight for it. It just shows their dedication and commitment to their roles. It's just a creation of beauty and drama for entertainment, and we should take it like that.
Talking about her appearance, Amy Adams is currently shooting for her new upcoming comedy, Nightbit*h. Some images were made last week from the set of the movie and yes, she looks unrecognizable. She looks too fat and has yet to be confirmed whether she has gained weight or if it is the prosthetics. We'll get back to you as soon as we get any updates.
