  • $\begingroup$ Haven't got a whole answer yet, but the vast range of all these suggests an actor, with the clues each representing a role $\endgroup$ – LogicianWithAHat Jul 31 '15 at 13:36
  • $\begingroup$ I had assumed the same - thought I had it solved twice but the middle name wasn't Joyce. I appreciate you trying to help me solve. $\endgroup$ – karin Jul 31 '15 at 14:09
  • $\begingroup$ @karin Is it a personality or a company? $\endgroup$ – kanchirk Jul 31 '15 at 14:09

    $\begingroup$ This feels like the trivia tag should be applied. $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Jul 31 '15 at 17:31

Okay, I think I might be onto something, but I haven't dug up answers to all the clues. I think @LogicianWithAHat was on the right track with different clues representing different roles. Here's what I have so far:

My answer:

Amy Adams

The clues (most are "[role] in [movie]"):

I'm an executive producer.

I forgot which role I had here

I love gold shoes.

Sydney Prosser in American Hustle

I was born in Kansas.

Lois Lane in Man of Steel

I'm well traveled.

Amelia Earhart in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

I'm a designer. (not clothing)

Amy in Her (she's a video game designer)

I have "Happy Feet".

Perhaps Giselle in Enchanted? She does a lot of dancing.

I'm a natural blonde.

Not sure

I've been on TV.

She's been on multiple TV shows, including The Office and, interestingly, Smallville

My middle name is Joyce.

Not sure, trying to find a character she played with this last name.

I was born in the early 40's.

Janis Joplin in an upcoming biopic (Janis Joplin was born in 1943)

It's a Female

Check

She has a show geared towards a specific genre.

Not sure

She has videos on You Tube.

She does, but so do many celebrities.

So many of the roles fit that I think I'm probably right, but I'm having trouble filling in all the holes. I thought I'd figured out the executive producer clue, but I can't remember which role it was. Additional thoughts are welcome!

Here's her imdb if you want to go a-searching.

  • $\begingroup$ @ VictorHenry -- I am going to do some research on her as well and I Thank You for the time/effort you put in. I had not thought to go in that direction but it seems logical now seeing it $\endgroup$ – karin Jul 31 '15 at 19:02

    $\begingroup$ It'll be weird (and confusing) if some clues points toward her roles and some others towards herself. $\endgroup$ – TroyAndAbed Jul 31 '15 at 19:03

    $\begingroup$ @TroyAndAbed Yeah, I totally agree. The Gold Shoes, Kansas, Well-Traveled, and Designer clues fit so well though, I'm probably too stuck on her. $\endgroup$ – VictorHenry Jul 31 '15 at 19:12
  • $\begingroup$ @VictorHenry Done some searching, and found this. ' ...her hair is naturally more of a blonde / strawberry blonde color... ' $\endgroup$ – user9377 Jul 31 '15 at 19:15
  • $\begingroup$ It is not here -- I texted him and he said that she was mentioned by another in his group and it was confirmed it is not Amy Adams $\endgroup$ – karin Jul 31 '15 at 19:35

Okay, new theory!

Elizabeth Banks

IMDB

Clues that fit so far:

Executive Producer

Elizabeth Banks has 3 executive producer credits

Gold shoes

Effie Trinket in Hunger Games https://www.pinterest.com/pin/188869778093095188/

Kansas

Perhaps her debut, Vicki in Surrender Dorothy?

TV show in a "specific genre"

Wet Hot American Summer, currently running

Youtube

Has a youtube series called "Ask A Badass"

Still working on the others, but the TV Show and Youtube clues fit way better here than for my other answer.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ I just texted him to ask if it is a person portraying many characters to see if we (you) are in the right line of thinking. I will let you know when I hear back $\endgroup$ – karin Jul 31 '15 at 20:18
