Very exciting news everyone: Rachel is gracing the cover of Marie Claire US June 2015 edition to promote “True Detective“, and we expect she might also talk about her other upcoming projects including “Aloha” and “Southpaw“. We have added the cover and first photoshoot outtakes in our gallery. The magazine will hit newsstands on May 19 and we will add the (digital) scans as soon as possible.

On her character in True Detective: “I love that she’s not the girlfriend or the wife. She doesn’t really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people’s feelings. She’s not trying to be charming, which isn’t always the case with a leading lady. There’s [usually] sort of a responsibility to be a little bit likeable… Not that you want to be a horrendous character, just a little more human.”

On prepping with the Ventura County Police Department and the LAPD for True Detective: “I don’t know how they do it every day. I was like, ‘I’m going to get a hash brown from McDonald’s and go to bed.'”

On calling time-out after the Mean Girls-Notebook-Wedding Crashers trifecta: “I had to kind of reassess and go, What did I want this [success] to be, and how did I expect it to look?”

On the type of characters she likes to play: “I prefer to be a villainess. There’s something a bit more delicious about their wickedness.”
