August 29, 2013 - Who Had Rachel McAdams Crying All Day?
About Time” is the kind of movie you’re supposed to bring tissues to. With time traveling, real human flaws, a wedding, a few births and an inevitable death, there’s no holding back tears.
The film follows Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), a man who learns he can time-travel and uses it to find his soulmate Mary, played by Rachel McAdams. But he learns that his power can’t be used to change everything, including what leads up to the movie’s most emotional scene.
And as the gloomy cancer diagnosis of Tim’s dad (Bill Nighy) leaves most in the theater with dripping mascara eyes, it wasn’t too much different for McAdams, who had to give Nighy a figurative last goodbye on set.
“Bill Nighy, he just makes my heart swell,” Rachel told MTV News for our Fall Movie Preview. “There’s this scene where I had to, you know he’s sick, and I had to give him a hug and it’s kind of like maybe the last time we see him. I was crying that whole day. I could not stop every time I went to hug him.
“And then he’d have to remind me like ‘I’m not actually dying,’ ” she continued. “I was like, ‘I know, but it’s just so sad.’ ”
That realness comes from director and writer Richard Curtis (“Love Actually”), who, according to McAdams, writes moments so relatable that it’s life-changing.
“You come out of his movies and you want to call your mom and tell her you love her,” she said. “I think he’s a master at making people feel and making their hearts open and want to be nicer to the people in their life. I think his movies are really powerful that way.”
And Rachel admitted that bringing that heart-opening power to her character was not hard at all.
“It was really there on the page already, and I think as much as Richard’s a comedian — he’s very tongue-in-cheek about everything, he doesn’t take anything too seriously — he does demand that beautiful things in life are appreciated and that the time you spend with the people you love is the most important thing in the world,” she said. “It’s kind of already there beneath the surface and on the surface, and he does bring that to everyday life, so it wasn’t hard to access.”
April 11, 2013 - Why Did Rachel McAdams Dye Her Hair Red? ‘It Was the Only Color Left!’
She’s been blonde, brunette and even pink — so what inspired Rachel McAdams to take the plunge and become a redhead?
“This was the only color left!” she told PEOPLE, laughing, at the L.A. premiere of To The Wonder.
But seriously: “My mother is a redhead, so I thought maybe I could pull it off,” she shared. “If she could do it, maybe I could do it. I don’t know, I just thought that it would be fun.”
And McAdams is already making the most of her sexy new hue, piling it into a high, shiny topknot for Tuesday’s premiere. Dove stylist Mark Townsend created the “young, cool and super modern” look for the star by spraying her hair with Dove’s Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo for texture and working in a dime-size amount of the line’s Color Care Leave on Conditioner for shine.
He then pulled her hair into a ponytail, sprayed it with Sally Hershberger Genius Spray Wax and twisted the tail into a knot, tucking the ends under and securing with two bobby pins that had been sprayed with dry shampoo. A black satin ribbon finished the look.
This site experienced a crash a few weeks ago that messed up our databases. We were only able to revert back to a 2011 backup of this site so I’ll have to reupload all 2011-2012 pictures of Rachel and we lost all updates from last year until now. I will be working hard to get all the missing pictures up and in the gallery as soon as possible.
Please be patient and sorry for any inconvenience! ~Nat
October 31, 2010 - NYTimes.com – An Actress on the Brink of a Blockbuster
RACHEL McADAMS, a 31-year-old Canadian actress who lives here in a house she shares with her younger brother when she’s not off shooting movies, has long held a green card. She can usually cross the border to the United States easily, but a few years ago an American customs officer recognized Ms. McAdams and gave her a hard time.
“She kicked me to the curb,” recalled Ms. McAdams, a slight, 5-foot-4 blonde. “She was tough. I had pink hair at the time, and she said, ‘Don’t dye your hair that color, and don’t make any more stupid movies.’ ”
October 18, 2010 - Rachel McAdams: ‘I’m Not Shy’ About Dating
Turns out no one should be surprised that Rachel McAdams has been getting cozy with her costar from the upcoming film Midnight in Paris.
The Canadian actress, 33, has been out and about with Welsh actor Michael Sheen, with the pair spotted engaging in serious PDA recently.
And, McAdams tells November’s InStyle magazine, dating an actor makes perfect sense.
“I usually take away one close relationship from every job, some romantic, some not,” she tells the magazine, which hits newsstands Friday. She previously dated Ryan Gosling, her costar in The Notebook, and actor Josh Lucas.
Still, she says, she doesn’t have a type when it comes to men. “I don’t think so, although I guess everyone says that, right? I like to be surprised by people, and I find that makes life a lot easier too, when you just accept what’s coming your way.”
Asked about her dating style, McAdams says she’s not afraid to put herself out there.
“I’m not shy,” she says. “But I feel like I give off more confidence than I really have. I get in trouble for being overly friendly at times.”
As for having children one day, McAdams says she’s waiting for the right time.
“Part of me is very attached to the idea of having children,” she says, but adds that “it’ll depend on if I find the person I want to do that with.”
June 18, 2010 - Vow in Rachel McAdams & Channing Tatum’s Future
Talk about power pairing! The gorgeous Rachel McAdams, 31, and hunky Channing Tatum, 30, are set to team up in August on the heartbreaking and uplifting true story The Vow.
Based on the real-life saga of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter, as told in the same-titled book, the plot takes off after the couple is hit from behind by a fast-moving truck and Krickett is left in a coma. Upon waking she has no memory of her new husband, so the pair must rebuild their relationship from scratch.
Channing is currently shooting the Ron Howard film Cheaters with Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Connelly and Winona Ryder in Chicago. McAdams is set to begin filming the Woody Allen flick Midnight in Paris with Adrien Brody next month.
