Rachel McAdams Covers 'Elle' June 2011

Rachel McAdams Covers 'Elle' June 2011

Rachel McAdams strikes a pose on the cover of Elle‘s June issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On working with Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris: “It’s definitely a different dynamic from the last time we were together [in Wedding Crashers]. It wasn’t as fun being mean. I love that [director] Woody [Allen] likes good guys to be good guys and bad guys to be bad guys. Owen seemed to respond really well when I was a really bad guy.”

On being a romantic: “I am. When Billie Holiday comes on, I can’t help but be transported—and I’m sure it wasn’t as romantic then at all – but that’s the wonderful part of my job: dressing up and walking down the street in New York or Toronto, pretending I’m in the ’40s.”

On her expectations for relationships: “You grow up and you assume that everyone is like that, and you quickly realize that they’re not, and then you have those days when you wonder if you’re going to find it for yourself. It’s such a hard thing to find. I think it was more that realization that rocked me.”

FYI: Rachel is wearing a Sosume top, jacket and leather pants from Balmain, diamond bangles from Chopard, brass-plated bangles from Noir Jewelry, and link bracelets from Fenton.

    Gorgeous, flawless, better than your faves etc.

    Please pick up more movie projects though. You’re so loveable amongst North American fans and all, but you’re not in enough films. Take notes from Anne Hathaway please.

    And can’t wait to see the classiness that is Marion, Guillaume and Rachel, at Cannes this week.

    I love Rachel MacAdams , she is a great actress. This past Xmas i went to put on everyone’s fav Xmas com/drama with Rachel in it . It was called ‘ Family Matters’ with her and Diane Keaton, Claire Danes, SJP etc an excellent great cast of stars, and was shocked to find only the case.
    I know pathetic but some creep stold my movie and just to be sneaky left me the case. That’s the only time i had a movie stolen on me ever . Not the best memory to have of Rachel M but .that sweet thang reminds me to lock my movie collection up when we have big movie nights. She always cracks me up she is so funny. Just love her. Will pick up the mag Elle so i can read what she has to say. Wouldn’t miss it.

    38
    Rachel McAdams is too young to lie about her age—or is she?
    The star of Wedding Crashers and The Notebook claims she was born in October 1978, making her 28. But imdb.com puts her birthday in 1976—and those who’ve looked into the matter believe the earlier date may be accurate.
    In a November 2005 profile, Details listed McAdams’s age as 29, prompting her then-publicist, Ame Van Iden, to complain vigorously. (McAdams later fired Van Iden, reportedly because the flack booked her to appear nude on Vanity Fair’s cover without her consent.) A Details source says the magazine agreed to run a correction only after Van Iden assured them that IMDb had been notified of its error.
    As of yesterday, however, the site was still listing her as 30. When Elle wrote McAdams up for its April cover, it got around the problem by saying, “IMDb states [she] is 30, but [she] is really, truly, ask her mother, 28.”
    What’s the truth? “Her birthday is inaccurately reported,” says her rep. “She is 28 years old.” But a source involved with one of her recent films says it’s “no secret among the producers” that she shaves a couple years off her age in interviews—only to add them back on when she’s up for a part that calls for a more “mature” actress.
    Wikipedia, for the record, lists her age as 28, but notes that “her exact year of birth is unknown. Some websites list it as 1976 and some websites list it as 1978. This means that she could be between the ages of 28 and 30.”

    she could have been A list but she’s made the worst film choices since Red Eye.
    She’s pretty stupid.

    Lainey Gossip – Article – SHERLOCK HOLMES
    Have you seen Sherlock Holmes? And Rachel’s performance? The strength of the film is the chemistry between RDJ and Jude Law. The weakness of the film, aside from an unnecessarily twisty plot, was McAdams. You know I love her. But that role was totally miscast.
    Laura and Michelle thought Rachel Weisz would have been an excellent candidate. Sure. But, just to be contrarian, wasn’t the point of that part that she end up forgettable? I mean the way she’s – SPOILER ALERT – dismissed at the end, rather painlessly in fact, implies that Holmes really, after it all, didn’t care much for her. Or perhaps that’s what ended up happening after Guy Ritchie worked with her.
    Maybe it’s just me but I get a distinct no-homies vibe between the two of them. In their interviews, there’s some tension. And not the sexual kind.
    But now it’s a million different tangents when the only two points I wanted to make in the first place were that: 1. I like her dress but I don’t love her dress it and Diane’s ensemble is better and 2. She was rather disappointing in Sherlock Holmes, agree or disagree?

    BEGGED FOR SHERLOCK HOLMES
    RACHEL McAdams was so desperate to be in new movie Sherlock Holmes, she had to beg director Guy Ritchie for her part.
    The actress — who plays Irene Adler alongside Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law in the hotly-anticipated flick — joked that she sat outside Ritchie’s house until he agreed to cast her.
    “I hunted Guy down and camped on his doorstep until he relented!” McAdams told Total Film magazine. “OK, no, we had a chat in a garden and it went from there… Fortunately, it worked out for me.”

    MICHAEL SHEEN
    I was surprised he and Lorraine lasted as long as they did, considering the relationship was a long distance one. She was never going to move to America because of her work. He wasn’t going to leave Lily for extended periods of time either.
    I’d like to see Michael settle down. But Kate once said he’s not the marrying kind. I believe it. He spent 7-8 years with Kate and never proposed. That still boggles the mind. He spent what, five years with Lorraine, and never proposed. If he hasn’t gotten married by now, he never will.
    I’ll give this relationship a year. If they make two years, I’ll be shocked.

    “I just found them equally attractive, equally competing in terms of the Hollywood sort of arena at that moment in time. They were as good a couple as you could find and I thought that I would’ve loved to have seen them together in a movie.

    Rachel McAdams’s career confuses me. With one exception (last year’s $37 million-grossing State of Play, which was technically a Russell Crowe-Ben Affleck disaster), every wide-release movie she has appeared in since 2004’s Mean Girlshas done well at the North American box office. The Notebook: $81 million. Wedding Crashers: $209 million. Red Eye: $58 million.The Family Stone: $60 million. The Time Traveler’s Wife: $63 million. Sherlock Holmes: $209 million.
    (Interesting aside: Lindsay Lohan’s Mean Girls costars, McAdams, Tina Fey and Amanda Seyfried, have all gone on to much bigger and better things than the film’s star.)
    The success of exactly half of those films had little to do with her, and The Notebook was a triumph of word of mouth and a strong ensemble cast led by Ryan Gosling, another young actor with an interesting career (a subject for another post). But what would have become of Red Eye and The Time Traveler’s Wife without McAdams? The success of both certainly wasn’t based on the drawing power of her male costars, Cillian Murphy and Eric Bana, respectively.
    Still, for all of her commercial success, McAdams is stuck on Hollywood’s B+ list. She’s no Sandra Bullock, no Jennifer Aniston, no Anne Hathaway. She’s beautiful, talented and likable, but there is something a bit generic about her. And unlike, say, Amy Adams, Oscar and Golden Globe nominations haven’t increased her red-carpet visibility. If you were dining in a restaurant, and McAdams walked in, would every head in the room turn in her direction to get a closer look

    THEY HATED EACH OTHER: RYAN AND RACHEL
    For the past couple of years he has had a long-distance relationship with his Notebook co-star and fellow Canadian, Rachel McAdams, who lives in Toronto.
    No one was more surprised to hear of this than the people who’d known them on set. ‘They hated each other. And now they’re dating?’ said the film’s director, Nick Cassavetes. Once, during filming, Gosling asked if he could have a stand-in for his reaction shot because he felt she was so uncooperative he couldn’t bear to look at her. Cassavetes refused. A screaming match ensued between the co-stars.
    Gosling doesn’t deny this. ‘We inspired the worst in each other. It was a strange experience, making a love story and not getting along with your co-star in any way.’
    And then what? I ask.
    ‘I don’t know what happened ,’ he says. ‘Two years later I saw her in New York and we started getting the idea that maybe we were wrong about each other

    I love her. She is so adorable. I agree that her choice of movie roles is less than steller. She should do independent or maybe a cable series.

  • Brandon

  • Ugh

    I can’t believe anyone liked the Family Stone. One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Waste of a great cast.

  • Nick Naylor

    @keyzllvr:

    I’d like to see her do a guest spot on The Simpsons. 30 Rock and Modern Family would be nice since she’s worked with Tina Fey and Ty Burrell on Mean Girls and Morning Glory.
