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 Appearance

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.

Magazine Cover

McAdams appears on the cover of Vogue magazine. In an interview with Sally Singer, she describes her relationship with acting and television as a child.

I grew up watching so much television. I was really into soap operas. I’d begin with Days of Our Lives, then Another World, and finish off with General Hospital. And before dinner I’d watch Oprah. I would fake sick all the time to the point where I’d convince myself I was sick.

Sherlock Holmes

McAdams stars alongside Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr. in Sherlock Holmes, playing a thief and former adversary of  Holmes. On her character Irene Adler:

You’re not quite sure where she’s coming from or what her intentions are. You don’t know whether she’s going to kiss you or kill you.

The Family Stone

McAdams appears in The Family Stone, a holiday drama starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Claire Danes and Diane Keaton. She plays the role of Parker’s sarcastic future sister-in-law.

We had so much fun making it. We joked, “We’re having such a good time, it can’t be any good.” But it was incredible.

Wedding Crashers

McAdams appears in the comedy Wedding Crashers with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as Wilson’s love interest.

When I read [the script] Claire was really the center and grounded among this crazy, wacky family. I think she was always supposed to bring a little bit of heart to the film and to find Owen, who he really was and strip away all the fun stuff and the lies.

Mean Girls

McAdams plays the role of Regina George in Tina Fey’s high school movie, Mean Girls. The film, also starring Lindsay Lohan and Lacey Chabert, focuses on the relationships between popular high schoolers.

Getting to do it the way the popular girls do it was fun: to layer on makeup and have long, straight platinum-blonde hair. I certainly didn’t look like that in high school.

Begins acting

McAdams begins acting at four-years-old while living in Ontario, Canada, quitting her former hobby of figure skating. She tells Elle magazine that getting up at 5 a.m. was a constant struggle.

I miss skating, but I used to get so nervous before competitions. I’d wake up in a cold sweat. I don’t miss that.
