Rachel McAdams Dishes On Her 'True Detective' Character

Rachel McAdams rocks an edgy hairstyle on the cover of Marie Claire‘s June 2015 issue, on newsstands May 19.

Here is what the 36-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her role in True Detective as Detective Ani Bezzerides: “I love the exploration of someone who has such a different background from you. That exploration runs to compassion, and to cracking yourself open and creating more understanding of how weird and amazing life is.”

On her character in True Detective: “I love that she’s not the girlfriend or the wife… She doesn’t really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people’s feelings. She’s not trying to be charming, which isn’t always the case with a leading lady. There’s [usually] sort of a responsibility to be a little bit likeable… Not that you want to be a horrendous character, just a little more human.”

On calling time-out after the Mean Girls-Notebook-Wedding Crashers trifecta: “I had to kind of reassess and go, What did I want this [success] to be, and how did I expect it to look?”
