We overlooked this before but the 2014 Canada Walk Of Fame released their annual Canada Walk Of Fame Commemorative Magazine last year to celebrate and honor the 2014 inductees. As you know Rachel was one of them and received her very own star at the Canada Walk Of Fame. The magazine features interviews with all the inductees. The magazine scans have been added in our gallery and the transcript of the interview in our press archive. Many thanks to Jord for the heads up!
On Her Love For Theater: “So, fortunately, by the time I graduated school I had a few experiences under my belt. Initially it was more out of insecurity that I would not get a job in theatre that I ended up working in film and television. I would like to get back to the stage one day as it is my first love.”
On Her ‘The Notebook’ Audition: “I was sort of floating through the entire audition. I didn’t know what had happened. I remember sitting down on the sidewalk after and thinking. ‘I feel like something has changed and I don’t know that it will ever be the same again.”
On Her Roles: “I have to be able to bring something to the table—it’s really important to connect with the characters. I love transformation and diving into a character I haven’t portrayed before. I never feel like acting is easy, it’s incredibly challenging and I think it’s important to not be quite sure I can get there but excited to try.”

We wanted to remind you that “A Most Wanted Man” is released in cinemas in the UK and Ireland starting today. You can buy tickets and find the theater near you via the official facebook app. The movie premiered during Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was released late July in the US. It already grossed close to $16 million in the US. The movie holds a Certified Fresh Rating at Rotten Tomatoes with a 91% score.
The UK press released two new interviews with Rachel so far which are both added in our press archive. You can find some excerpts below:
On the German dialect: “Even just learning the dialect and the flavour of the German sound informs this new kind of person in me. Sometimes the further from what you imagine yourself to be the better, because then you find you’re probably closer to those people than you think.”
On her upcoming movie slate: “I’m not really a creature of habit. I like trying everything out.”
On making films: “Making a film, it’s just the right combination of people and place and time, and whatever is going on in the world around you. It’s so elusive. I think you start with a desire and a yearning to tell a certain story, and you kind of have to let the rest go. Maybe that’s very naïve, but so far that’s what I have tried to do.”
We also wanted to share this wonderful quote from director Anton Corbijn on casting Rachel in the movie (Via Hot Press):
“Rachel’s a naturally charming woman. I just thought that it would be interesting to have her in a more demanding and serious role, and that kind of charm will stay. That’s how she gets people to be on her side. She plays this young girl who gets in over her head really, but she means really well, she’s idealistic and kind of naïve in her handling of it all.”
Also don’t forget to follow the official twitter accounts of the movie @AMostWantedMan & @MostWantedManUK and ‘Like’ the official facebook pages /AMostWantedMan & /MostWantedManUK.
The first video coverage of Rachel during the New York City premiere of “A Most Wanted Man” earlier this week has been added in our gallery. We also added a new movie clip featuring Rachel and her co-stars Grigoriy Dobrygin, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Daniel Brühl titled ‘God’s Will’. The movie is currently playing in selected theaters in the US and will be released on September 12, 2014 in the UK.
Rachel is gracing the cover of Allure magazine’s August 2014 edition like we previously reported. We have added the magazine scans in our gallery. We decided to add both the print as well as the digital/iPad edition in our gallery because the layout is very different of both editions. Many thanks to our friend Ali from Katie Holmes Online and Channing Tatum Online for donating the digital scans! The full transcript of the interview can be found in our press archive as well as the additional articles about Rachel’s cover look and beauty secrets.
Rachel McAdams has starred in more quotable movies than any A-list actress – yet she remains a mystery. But the private actress is willing to reveal some of herself, her famous costars, and her thoughts on true love.
Most actresses have one movie they would rather not talk about. They may even want to erase it from their IMDB profile. Rachel McAdams isn’t most actresses. Though she is a star with serious talent. McAdams doesn’t have an issue with the fact that her major big-screen debut was in the The Hot Chick, a comedy in which she and Rob Schneider swap bodies. In fact, she not only talks about the movie respectfully but also considers the striptease scene to he one of her toughest acting challenges to date.

We already updated our site with the behind the editorial photoshoot and the behind the scenes video in previous updates but be sure to check them out in case you missed it before.
Rachel stopped by NBC’s The Today Show earlier today in New York City to promote “A Most Wanted Man“. We added the interview in our media archive and HD screen captures will follow soon. The segment also features a new clip of Rachel as Annabel Richter and they talk about the movie, Rachel’s favorite thrillers and “The Notebook“.
Various media outlets are reporting that there will be a premiere in New York City tonight for the movie but we haven’t found any official confirmation. Be sure to come back later because we will cover the premiere if there is one.
Even more “About Time” interviews were released of Rachel during the Los Angeles press junket over the last few days and we added them all in our media archive. We also added a few new TV spots of the movie, which are all currently airing in the US. Two new production stills are added in our gallery and we also added the social media banners Universal released on the official facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter, and tumblr account of the movie to promote the release because they feature some unseen stills.
We recommend everyone to watch her SheKnows interview, it’s a more in-depth one and definitely worth the watch! “About Time” is currently playing in selected theaters and will go nationwide this Friday (November 8th) in the US!
Over the last few days a lot of new interviews were released of Rachel during the Los Angeles press junket for “About Time” last Sunday. We added the first batch of released video interviews in our media archive and the text interviews in our press archive. Many thanks to my friends Amanda and Jasmine for helping out.
Rachel confirmed to HitFix and Entertainment Tonight Canada that the recent “Passengers” rumors with Keanu Reeves are true but that the project is still “in the works”/”in talks” so it’s not official yet. Some excerpts of the (text) interviews can be found below:
On Going to Theater school: “It was good for me. I really enjoyed that and I really thrived in that. I finally found a place where I felt like I belonged.”
On comparing “About Time” to “The Time Traveler’s Wife”: “When I read this script, I really didn’t think about Time Traveler’s Wife at all, because that we dealt with very differently. [In About Time], it’s a much lighter touch. [The time travel is] less of an affliction and more of a fantasy.”
On prefering love stories: “I love stories with love in them. I just prefer those films. Every so often, I come across a film where there’s no love story. It doesn’t have to be romantic, but there’s a lack of love, and I don’t get that. I’m like, ‘Something’s missing.'”
“About Time” is currently playing in selected theaters and will go nationwide next week on November 8th in the US. We expect more (video) interview additions later on so keep checking back!
