Amy Adams is about to get her first taste of life as a worldwide phenomenon, an inevitability when you star in a comic book blockbuster. Adams will play Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. Coming as it does on the heels of her multiple award-nominated performances in 2012, Adams is officially a star. She's got several movies slated for 2013 in addition to Man of Steel, and has also been serving as the spokeswoman for Lacoste's newest ladies' fragrance, Eau de Lacoste. She also will be appearing on the cover of Elle's July 2013 UK issue.
