Amy plays the tough cookie

Hollywood beauty Amy Adams stepped into the boxing ring to prove that she was tough enough to play the love interest of Mark Wahlberg in the Mickey Ward biopic Fighter.

The Enchanted star pulled on her boxing gloves to throw a punch or two to satisfy director David O Russell, who doubted Adams’s capability to portray the role of tough-talking Charlene Fleming in the film.

“I did have to take some boxing lessons. David, when he cast me, told me I didn’t look like a girl who could throw a punch, so I had to prove him wrong,” said the 36 year-old actor.
