40% or so of my daily quotes come from Regina George (“I’m trying to lose 5 pounds”), and every time The Notebook comes on, I have to stop and watch. Rachel McAdams is a talented, vintage beauty who seems to captivate everyone these days. Gracing the June cover of Elle, McAdams posed in many a sultry photo and talked about everything from romance to her many films.
McAdams is a true romantic: “I am. When Billie Holiday comes on, I can’t help but be transported—and I’m sure it wasn’t as romantic then at all—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.”
She was supposed to play Lindsay Lohan’s part in Mean Girls (can you imagine?): With Mean Girls, I originally auditioned for the part that Lindsay Lohan played. 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; I wonder who will play that.…”
McAdams stars in the upcoming Woody Allen flick, Midnight In Paris (out May 20th). It will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this week, and no doubt we’ll get a peek at her ring finger. New York Daily news speculates that she is engaged to Paris co-star Michael Sheen, whom she’s been seeing since last fall. Us Magazine reported yesterday that McAdams was spotted wearing an engagement ring. Alas, her rep said that the two lovebirds are not headed to the altar.
The June issue of Elle magazine is on newsstands May 17.
