Amy Adams dons boxing gloves to win role in `Fighter`

London: 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 bio-pic `Fighter`.

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

"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 actress.

However, Adams insisted that fighting is in her genes as she comes from a very big family.

"I`m one of seven kids so you have to fight for everything! It was relatable," she added.
