Rachel McAdams for Elle Magazine
Pink-streaked Rachel McAdams is the cover girl for the April 2007 issue of Elle Magazine and gives quite the fascinating interview. For starters, apparently Rachel is 28 according to her mom and not 30 as IMDB reports. And she’s turned down some huge movie roles.
I extrapolated the most interesting paragraph for thine reading pleasure:
“I’m not going to make movies just to make movies,” McAdams says. (She’s turned down loads of roles, including the romantic leads in Mission Impossible 2 and Casino Royale. Anne Hathaway‘s part in the Devil Wears Prada, and Agent 99 in the upcoming Get Smart, starring Steve Carell.) “I have to be passionate about it. And at the same time, I can get very distracted when I’m working, and I like to get back to my life a lot — a love-wise life with Ryan Gosling that she fictionalized in The Notebook in 2004 and factualized with him quite a while after the movie. Two years-ish to be exact. She’s a serious sort, not one to have her head spun on a set all flibbertigibbety, hand-feeling the tabloids. They’re a well-matched pair of hearts. She admires him. Her cheeks bloom when she speaks of his Oscar nomination for Half Nelson. “He did such an amazing job,” McAdams says, her voice positively aching. “He worked so hard, too! He never does the same thing twice. He’s very brave. I don’t think he sees the point [in taking a role] unless he can find out what he’s made of every time. He just doesn’t back off. He goes into everything from that place.”
Yes, Rachel is wearing the same Armani Prive dress as Beyonce from The Oscars. AND Rachel is wearing the same Chanel dress as Kirsten Dunst from the Oscars. Rachel looks so much better in it than Kirsten!
