Then: Adams played Simone Kerr, girlfriend of Lee High School's star football player, and had a blast with her costars. "We were exploring Austin, drinking and being typical 20-year-olds," she said at Wednesday's party. "But we were also writing. We were such rebels – we'd go down to the hotel lobby in our pajamas and write scenes."
Now: She reunited with Affleck for 1997's Chasing Amy, played Jennifer Aniston's best pal in 2006's The Break-Up, and has also dabbled in writing and directing.
