1. Amy Adams in her debut film, the 1999 mockumentary Drop Dead Gorgeous. Go Muskies!

    From her Fresh Air interview:

    I’m much more comfortable speaking through my characters’ voices than my own…

    I love talking, and I love communicating with people and hearing new ideas, but I do get very self-conscious about how I form my own thoughts. And I tend to be somebody who acts from a very instinctual place, and tries to live from a very instinctual place. So on occasion, when I have tried to intellectualize an emotional experience, it’s very hard for me. And so, when I’m able to just get lost in the life of my character, and the emotional truth and reality that they experience, I really enjoy that. And it helps me understand humanity a little bit more.
