Rachel McAdams Says She Likes To 'Play Characters That Are Flawed & Interesting'

Rachel recently opened up about the projects she likes to take on.

“With any project I work on— not just True Detective— I don’t feel the need just to play a strong woman. I don’t want the audience to say, ‘Oh, she was so strong.’ I want to play characters that are flawed and interesting,” Rachel told TIME. “I don’t really want to repeat myself. For the most part, I always want to be doing something new. But there aren’t a lot of gritty roles out there for women, and they are so fun to play everyone wants them.”

FYI: Rachel is wearing a Zuhair Murad dress paired with Stuart Weitzman pumps.
