wlm0m8zf1lgz0m8zMcAdams appears on the cover of the August 2014 issue of Allure magazine. She talks about the strip tease scene in The Hot Chick and working with Lindsey Lohan in Mean Girls.

If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing.

The Notebook


According to Cassavetes Gosling and McAdams did not get along:

They were really not getting along one day on set. Really not. And Ryan came to me, and there’s 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, “Nick come here.” And he’s doing a scene with Rachel and he says, “Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me?” I said, “What?” He says, “I can’t. I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this.

We went into a room with a producer; they started screaming and yelling at each other. I walked out. At that point I was smoking cigarettes. I smoked a cigarette and everybody came out like, “All right let’s do this.” And it got better after that, you know? They had it out… I think Ryan respected her for standing up for her character and Rachel was happy to get that out in the open. The rest of the film wasn’t smooth sailing, but it was smoother sailing.

I always wanted pink hair. I wanted to do my whole head, but my hairstylist, Robert, was like, “How about we start small?” I absolutely loved it. I still think about doing blue at some point, but I don’t like to change my hair before I’m about to do [a film]—you never know what that character’s going to be.

Morning Glory

Film Appearance0 Comments

McAdams plays Becky, an ambitious TV producer, in this comedy directed by Roger Michell. Becky accepts a job at a struggling morning show, a position that almost seems to be too much to handle. Co-starring Diane Keaton, Harrison Ford and Jeff Goldblum.

I instantly liked her when I read the script. Becky was just this very scattered, goofy, kind of nutty character who is in charge of everything. She’s trying to keep this whole big fiasco together and she wants to stop it from completely coming apart at the seams, yet she is completely coming apart at the seams. I liked that juxtaposition. I also liked the fact she was very expressive about how she felt. You know, normally, it’s the on-air talent that is so communicative about their feelings, but she’s this behind the scenes person who really had a lot of personality.
