Sony Classics just released the full website for “Midnight in Paris“, you can visit the site via MidnightInParisFilm.com. Be sure to visit the website because it’s worth the visit, it contains more in depth information about the movie and the cast. We added the Rachel related captures in our gallery. The official Spanish website already released a few days ago but it has a slightly different design.
The website also contains an about the production page with a summary of the movie including quotes from Woody Allen, Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard and Rachel. We added the article in our press archive as well. You can read some interesting excerpts below, director Woody Allen and co-star Owen Wilson both praise Rachel.
Allen has high praise for McAdams’s work on the film. “Rachel just gets it,” he says. “She’s funny when she has to be funny; she’s serious when she has to be serious. She’s unfailingly real, she doesn’t do anything too big or too under-acted, and she’s totally alive on the screen.” Says Wilson: “What I saw even more from Rachel’s performance was how Inez is kind of funny in the way she uses her sexuality to manipulate Gil. Rachel has a very good sense of humor and knew exactly how to play those scenes.”
MIDNIGHT IN PARIS is the second occasion when McAdams and Wilson co-starred as a couple, after “Wedding Crashers” in 2005. “I was so excited to work with Owen again because we had so much fun when we worked together a few years ago,” says McAdams. “As this was a much more antagonistic relationship than the one we had in the other film, I was curious about how that would play out. So our characters aren’t getting along this time around—but we did again.” Says Wilson: “I loved working with Rachel again. She came in during the second half of filming, and I think she brought this burst of energy and got everybody renewed, got us charged up for the final push.”

We reported you earlier today with a preview of Rachel’s upcoming Elle Magazine cover of June which will hit newsstands May 17th. Elle Magazine just released the editorial photoshoot for the cover to their official website and the first excerpts of the interview.
The editorial is stunning, the styling and lighting is amazing and it’s nothing like we seen before. We added all the released images in our gallery. The excerpts can be found below as well and be sure to read the all excerpts.
Update: We just came across another image of this shoot, she looks stunning thanks to ofalltime @ tumblr. The photos were taken by photographer Alexei Hay and styled by Joe Zee.
Rachel McAdams: The Romantic
Woody Allen wrote a movie for her. Diane Keaton is her biggest fan. She’s fronted blockbuster romcoms, seduced mouthwatering stars, and made girls old and young believe that we, too, will get swept up in an epic love story one day. Tom Shone finds Rachel McAdams 2,168 miles from the L.A. limelight
On working with Owen Wilson: “It’s definitely a different dynamic from the last time we were together. It wasn’t as fun being mean. I love that Woody likes good guys to be good guys and bad guys to be bad guys. Owen seemed to respond really well when I was a really bad guy.”
On finding inspiration in her parents’ marriage: “[They are] Still together and still in love. I’m very blessed that way. I had a great example of love in front of me, and that’s probably what makes me such a romantic, because I’ve seen it firsthand.”
On her expectations for relationships: “You grow up and you assume that everyone is like that, and you quickly realize that they’re not, and then you have those days when you wonder if you’re going to find it for yourself. It’s such a hard thing to find. I think it was more that realization that rocked me.”

Rachel will be gracing the cover of Elle Magazine’s June cover and thanks to MSN.com we now have a larger preview of the cover as well as an excerpt of the interview. We reported before with a preview of the cover and interview. We expect the full interview and magazine scans this week.
In the June issue of Elle, Rachel McAdams, who stars opposite Owen Wilson in Woody Allen’s upcoming rom-com, “Midnight In Paris,” opens up about what draws her to certain roles, admitting that the world almost missed out on her hilariously evil portrayal of Regina George. “With ‘Mean Girls,’ I originally auditioned for the part that Lindsay Lohan played,” says McAdams. “I wouldn’t have seen myself playing Regina at all. But when I read the script, I thought, ‘Oh, this part is way more fun …‘”
At heart, though, McAdams is a true romantic, and what she really loves about acting is imagining she’s in another world. “When Billie Holiday comes on, I can’t help but be transported,” she says. “I’m sure it wasn’t as romantic then, but that’s the wonderful part of my job: dressing up and walking down the street in New York or Toronto, pretending I’m in the ’40s.”

Collider sat down with Rachel yesterday during the first day of press to talk about “Midnight in Paris“. Today they already published a part of the interview were Rachel was talking about her upcoming projects. She officially confirmed her cameo in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows“, and even confirmed she did some filming in London as well – we already saw set photos of her in Strasbourg – she also talks about “The Vow” and the Terrence Malick project.
Was it fun to get to play Irene Adler again? Were there things about her that you wanted to explore a little more?
McAdams: Yeah. I just have a small cameo in this one, but it was nice to revisit. It’s why I’ve always thought I would like to do television. You get really intimate with your character. Often with film, I find that you’re just really getting to know a person. They’re just starting to sink in, and then you wrap the film. So, it was nice to get to bring her back and have time to meditate on her a bit more. I liked that exercise.
Is The Vow your next film?
McAdams: We finished The Vow after Midnight in Paris, and then I went and did a Terrence Malick film after that.
What was Terrence Malick like to work with?
McAdams: He was wonderful and so inspiring. He has a very different way of working and I think it really services a real honesty and beauty in his films. It was a great experience, as an actor. You have to be very honest and very vulnerable, and take a leap and just hope someone will catch you, and he does. You can just let yourself go and let him take you where he’s going to take you, and trust that it will be interesting and compelling. You don’t have to do a lot, in a weird way. It was a great experience.
