The magazine is already on digital newsstands and will hit physical newsstands on May 19.
No more Ms. Nice Guy. As a rough-around-the-edges law enforcer in this month’s cult crime show True Detective, Rachel McAdams is like nothing we’ve seen before. Which is just the way she likes it.
Rachel McAdams shows up for our interview in an electric car the size of a toaster. We’re high up in L.A.’s Fryman Canyon on a bright, breezy spring morning, and McAdams is wearing a baggy maroon hoodie, no-name sunglasses, spandex leggings, and a Pittsburgh Pirates ball cap. Her hair is four inches of black roots plus three inches of bleached-out surf-rat frizz at the ends. Her makeup is slim to none. If anyone has ever wondered what the opposite of a movie star entrance looks like, it’s safe to say this is it.

Very exciting news everyone: Rachel is gracing the cover of Marie Claire US June 2015 edition to promote “True Detective“, and we expect she might also talk about her other upcoming projects including “Aloha” and “Southpaw“. We have added the cover and first photoshoot outtakes in our gallery. The magazine will hit newsstands on May 19 and we will add the (digital) scans as soon as possible.
On her character in True Detective: “I love that she’s not the girlfriend or the wife. She doesn’t really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people’s feelings. She’s not trying to be charming, which isn’t always the case with a leading lady. There’s [usually] sort of a responsibility to be a little bit likeable… Not that you want to be a horrendous character, just a little more human.”
On prepping with the Ventura County Police Department and the LAPD for True Detective: “I don’t know how they do it every day. I was like, ‘I’m going to get a hash brown from McDonald’s and go to bed.'”
On calling time-out after the Mean Girls-Notebook-Wedding Crashers trifecta: “I had to kind of reassess and go, What did I want this [success] to be, and how did I expect it to look?”
On the type of characters she likes to play: “I prefer to be a villainess. There’s something a bit more delicious about their wickedness.”
HBO released the official key-art character posters of “True Detective“. It features a close-up of the leads: Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, Vince Vaughn as Frank Semyon, Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh, and Rachel as Ani Bezzerides with the tag line We get the world we deserve. The second season of the series will premiere on Sunday, June 21 on HBO.
HBO published a Q&A with “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto about the upcoming anticipated second season of the series.
HBO: Is there a relationship between the story of season two and the story of season one, or any connection between the seasons?
There’s no relationship between the stories or characters, which was the result of fully committing to something new, but I do think that the seasons have a deep, close bond in sensibility and vision, a similar soul, though this is a more complex world and field of characters.
