Joey Lauren Adams was born the daughter of a lumber yard owner and the youngest of three children. She grew up in Arkansas and went to the North Little Rock Northeast High School, from where she matriculated in 1986 before deciding to pursue an acting career instead of going to college.

Adams started her acting career as Mona Mullins in the TV series “North Little Rock Northeast High School” in 1991, and a year later she played Mona again in “Vinnie & Bobby”. She appeared in “Coneheads” (1993), Richard Linklater’s “Dazed and Confused” (1993) with Jason London, Wiley Wiggins, and Matthew McConaughey, and “The Program” (1993) starring James Caan, Halle Berry, and Omar Epps.

Adams played in Kevin Smith’s “Mallrats” (1995) with Shannen Doherty, Jeremy London, and Jason Lee, and starred in “Chasing Amy” (1997) for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. By the end of the 90’s, she had roles in “A Cool, Dry Place” (1998), and comedy “Big Daddy” (1999) with Adam Sandler.

In the early 2000’s, Adams played in Shirley MacLaine’s “Bruno” (2000), Sally Field’s “Beautiful” (2000), and in Kevin Smith’s “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” (2001). She ended the previous decade with roles in “The Break-Up” (2006) with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn, “Trucker” (2008), and “ExTerminators” (2009) starring Heather Graham and Jennifer Coolidge, which only increased her net worth.

Although her popularity wasn’t at the same level as it was the case in the 90’s and 2000’s, Adams has recently managed to land notable roles in “Blue Caprice” (2013), “She Loves Me Not” (2013), “Sequoia” (2014), “Valley Inn” (2014), and “Animal” (2014). Most recently, she appeared in Tyler Russell’s “Here Comes Rusty” (2016), and starred in the thriller “All the Birds Have Flown South” (2016). At the moment, Adams is playing in the TV comedy series “Still the King” (2016- ) and is in pre-production of “Just Drive” which will be released in 2018.

Regarding her personal life, Joey Lauren Adams marital status is unknown as she keeps it strictly private. She is a good friend of Ashley Judd and a big fan of country music. Adams is well known for her distinctive high-pitch voice, and while her brother was in a coma, he would only respond to the sound of Joey’s voice.

1Her voice
1It just gets frustrating playing the girlfriend, It's just this awful feeling, sitting in your house, waiting for a script to come. I like to be more proactive.
2My life isn't that dramatic. My dad really loves me, he just can't talk on the phone. He's too crippled and shy, and that's almost harder. He's there and he loves me, and I try and try and try, it's just impossible to have a relationship.
3No one was jumping up and saying, 'Yeah, let me give you money.' I had never held a camera in my hand - a home video camera, nothing. I had not directed.
4I want to feel passion, I want to feel pain. I want to weep at the sound of your name. Come make me laugh, come make me cry... just make me feel alive.
5A genius is one who can do anything except make a living.
6I don't think I was fully satisfied acting. You know, the girlfriend role or the best friend role, and that wasn't enough for me.
7My relationship with my father is pretty non-existent.
8A bonus: You don't have to diet to direct.
9Definition of an independent film is torture with less money and time.
10For women in their 30s, it's so hard to get good parts.
11I am one of the few actresses who isn't recognized by the way she looks. I'm recognized by the way I talk.
12I like decorative, functional things that I feel comfortable in.
13I think, ultimately, looking back now, acting wasn't satisfying me 100%.
14I was never one of those people who thought, 'What I really want to do is direct.' It never occurred to me.
15It's not like you can wake up and realize, 'Oh, I want intimacy,' and then it happens that day.
16The last person they expected to connect with a screenplay was the comedic, blonde actress with the funny voice.
17There were days that I literally had no reason to get out of bed. It just was so destructive for me.
18'Chasing Amy' was an amazing role, but then after that, I went and did 'Big Daddy' and you're the girlfriend or you're the best friend. I wasn't getting the Nicole Kidman roles.
19[on her distinctive voice] It's not a normal voice. It doesn't fit into people's preconceptions about what a woman's voice should sound like. My mom doesn't think I have an unusual voice, though. I'm sure it's helped me get some roles. But Chasing Amy (1997), I almost didn't get. There was concern the voice would grate on some people -- which some critics said it did.
1She appeared in four films with Ben Affleck: Dazed and Confused (1993), Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997) and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001). The first of these, which was directed by Richard Linklater, was the only one of the four not directed by Kevin Smith.
2She played Jason London's girlfriend in Dazed and Confused (1993) and his identical twin brother Jeremy London's ex-girlfriend in Mallrats (1995). Coincidentally, Ben Affleck appeared in both films.
3Wrote and directed the film, Come Early Morning (2006), selected from 1700 submissions that is among 16 that will play and premiere in Sundance's U.S. dramatic competition. [November 2005]
4Arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in San Diego [December 2003]
5Moved after 19 years from Los Angeles to Oxford, Mississippi. [2006]
6Good friend of Ashley Judd.
7She has worked with both of the London twins. She starred in Dazed and Confused (1993) with Jason London and two years later in Mallrats (1995) with Jeremy London.
8When her brother was in a coma from an automobile accident, he would only show a response from her very distinctive voice.
9Often mistaken for Renée Zellweger. During her appearance on Dinner for Five (2001) she said the person who most-often makes that mistake is Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein.
10Moved to Hollywood in 1988.
11Won the Chicago Film Critics "Most Promising Actress" award in 1997 for her performance in Chasing Amy (1997).
12Is a fan of country music and wrote the song she sings in Chasing Amy (1997).
13Filmed a scene for Wayne's World 2 (1993), but her scene was later deleted during editing.
