Rachel McAdams Looks Back On The Making Of ‘Mean Girls’: Says She Was Impressed With Co-Star Lindsay Lohan


Sherlock Holmes is set to open December 25 and the trade publication Screen Daily says the movie, “seems poised to become a sizable hit.” That’s good news for Rachel McAdams who stars in the movie along Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. In the latest issue of Vogue, McAdams opens up about a variety of different subjects including her perfect day:

Get up. Go to the grocery store. Go out to the movies. Do a little work on the Web site.”

Her love life:

The first thing Diane (Keaton, her costar in the upcoming film Morning Glory) always asks me is about my love life. I thwart her as I do everyone else… I’m pretty good on my own, and I like just getting out and walking, which seems very rudimentary.”

“I just remember marveling about how much she knew as an actor, how much she understood. She did very few takes and had this naturalness to her. And beyond that, I was 26 at the time. I’d be asked, ‘Where do you go out?’ ” (McAdams throws her hands up in bafflement and defeat.)

It’s always interesting to find out the age of actors that end up getting cast as high school age characters and especially in McAdams case, considering the fact that she was ten years older than some of her co-stars. She definitely pulled it off,  although she says it was difficult to relate to the 17 year old Lohan. She said,

I felt like I was in a different place at that time.”
