For nearly twenty years, Amy Adams has been a fulfilled actress and a woman in love. The American, born in Italy in 1974, celebrates her 46th birthday this Thursday, August 20, 2020. For the occasion, Closer invites you to discover who is Darren Le Gallo, the one who has shared his life since the early 2000s. C It was in 2001 that Amy Adams met the young man, during a theater class.
Between them, it is love at first sight and a few months after their meeting, they begin a relationship. In 2008, Darren Le Gallo and Amy Adams got engaged just before the American actress gave birth to the couple’s first child, Aviana, a little girl born at the end of 2009. A birth that changed the way she worked. “I definitely feel more raw and more open to empathy, and that helps. But what has really changed is the way I treat work,” she says. It was finally until May 2015 for the couple to materialize their engagement by getting married in California.
Amy Adams: “Darren made a lot of sacrifices”
Career side, Darren Le Gallo is far from having the same filmography as his wife. Indeed, to his credit, we can only cite appearances in series like Six Feet Under or The Big Bang Theory. It must be said that the actor made the choice to put his career in the background to provide for the needs of his wife and their daughter. An attitude much appreciated by Amy Adams. “You know he sacrificed a lot. But he travels with me and helps keep the family together, and I really appreciate that. But I don’t appreciate him because he’s a man doing it, I appreciates it because it’s my partner, ”explained the six-time Oscar nominee in November 2016 in an interview with The Guardian.
