Rachel made a surprise appearance during her own St. Thomas’ Timken Centre Wall of Fame Induction yesterday in her former hometown. She was suppose to do voice-overs this week in New York, but the production got pushed back to next week so she was able to attend the event.
The local news paper St. Thomas Journal released a nice in-depth article about the induction. Rachel confirmed and talked about her upcoming projects “The Little Prince” and the still untitled Cameron Crowe project to the journalists after her acceptance speech. She also revealed she is currently working on a few other projects and there may possibly be a new movie on the way in the very near future.
Linda Maskell Pereira recalls seeing the Canadian actress Rachel McAdams on a stairwell one day when McAdams was nearing the end of high school.
Pereira was McAdams’ drama teacher at Central Elgin Collegiate Institute in the small city of St. Thomas, Ont. and she wanted to know what her student would do after graduation.
McAdams told her she planned to study social sciences at the University of Western Ontario in London, a stone’s throw from St. Thomas.
“I love drama so much but I just don’t think that it would be a very practical thing,” McAdams said, according to Pereira. “I don’t think I can get a job.”
Film.com released a new U.S. poster for “Passion” earlier today. The movie is expected to be released in the U.S. on VOD on August 1st, followed by a theatrical release on August 30th.
Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed To Kill with an erotic corporate thriller fueled by sex, ambition, image, envy and the dark, murderous side of PASSION. The film stars Rachel McAdams (Midnight In Paris, Sherlock Holmes, Mean Girls) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as two rising female executives in a multinational corporation whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat.

Rachel was the Honorable Ambassador during last night’s A Night Out With The Millennium Network Toronto hosted by the Clinton Foundation. Rachel introduced former president Bill Clinton to the stage, who spoke for about 30 minutes about his foundation. The Clinton Foundation focusses on addressing the next generation about global challenges like improving Global Health, strengthening Economies and promoting healthier Childhoods. We added the first pictures of Rachel outside the venue greeting fans and photos taken by fans in our gallery but we hope we can add more additions later on.
A video of Rachel greeting her fans outside the venue can be watched at Mr Will’s website.

Rachel attended CANFAR’s Young Professional Council Our Future Without AIDS Benefit evening on saturday evening (April 27) in Toronto. The event was an art auction to benefit CANFAR (Canadian Foundation for Aids Research) and Rachel’s (childhood) friend Tennille Rose Will, who is a Toronto-based artist, submitted one of her pieces (titled Forever Roses) to the auction. Actor Terrence Howard also attended the event. For more information about CANFAR please visit their official website. We only found a few (fan)photos so far of Rachel at the event, which can be found in our gallery.
The CANFAR Young Professional Council (YPC) would like to take this opportunity to convey our heartfelt thanks to you for attending our 3rd annual ‘Our Future Without AIDS’ (OFWA) fundraising event on Saturday night.
