Birthday Hotties: Amy Adams & Andrew Garfield

Redheaded hotties Amy Adams and Andrew Garfield celebrate their birthdays today and other than hair color and sharing the same birth date, do you know what else they have in common? If you said they are both starring in superhero film remakes, then you are right! Adams will play Lois Lane opposite Henry Cavill's Superman in 2013's Man of Steel while Garfield will don the Spidey suit for 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man.

Now both of them have also done some bit work on two of my all-time favorite genre TV shows. She appeared on Buffy the Vampire Slayer as one of the main character's white trash sister while he played a man from Tennessee named Frank in two episodes of Doctor Who. Another thing they have in common is that you probably can't guess where they were born. You'd probably be be shocked to learn that the all-American Adams was born in an Army base in Viscenze, Italy, while the Brit-accented Garfield was actually born in the good ol' US of A, more specifically in Los Angeles.

TV Roles: Frank and Beth

Finally, if you thought they were both Oscar-nominated then you would be wrong. While she has garnered three Oscar nominations (though she deserved another one for her work in Enchanted), he was inexplicably snubbed last year for his critically-acclaimed work in The Social Network. And with that note, happy birthday!
