Quotes from Rachel
“I don’t remember people’s names that were mean to me anymore, so I have that distance, which helps me to have a fresh start. But, at the same time, I needed to be refreshed on what was hip and cool now, because I’m not so much. And I wasn’t the popular girl, so I definitely needed to do some research in terms of talking to girls that are going it through now, because it’s different.”
-On relating to her character (Dark Horizons)
“But for Regina, the interesting challenge for me was to go further with – she’s sort of like a machine, she hurts people because she can, and for some reason it feels good and she has an obsession with it, and I really wanted to go to that extreme.”
-On her character Regina George (Dark Horizons)
Quotes from Cast & Crew
[On Rachel McAdams] “I’m like: Oh, yes, she’s amazing. She’s a film actor. She’s not pushing. And so I kind of learned that lesson from watching her a couple years before.”
-Tina Fey (NPR)
[On Rachel McAdams] “She is a real, legit actor and film actor. And that was the first movie that I had ever been on. And I would watch – I would stand with the director sometimes and watch her scenes. ”
-Tina Fey (NPR)
“The great thing about Rachel is it’s true that you have to cast a nice girl to play … You have to cast a smart person to play a dumb person and cast someone polite and kind hard-working to play this character. The real thing would be a nightmare.”
- Tina Fey (DVD audio commentary)
“The director, Mark Waters, working with a smart casting team, has assembled a superb group of players. Scene by scene you can’t help being impressed by ”Mean Girls”; it’s like a group of sketches linked by a theme, with some playing much better than others.”
-Elvis Mitchell (New York Times)
“Rachel McAdams plays Regina just mean enough to be disliked but not rotten enough to alienate the audience.”
-Rebecca Murray (About)
“There’s equal fun to be had watching rising star McAdams as the splendidly evil Regina.”
-Caroline Westbrook (Empire)
