Rachel attended the AFI 45th Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute to Diane Keaton yesterday during which Keaton received a Lifetime Achievement Award. The award honors an individual whose career in motion pictures or television has greatly contributed to the enrichment of American culture. Previous recipients include Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, and Jane Fonda who all attended yesterday’s ceremony. Rachel was one of the guests who paid tribute to Diane, sharing how Keaton mentored her. The first batch with high quality images have been added in our gallery. TNT and TCM will broadcast the event in a one-hour special AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Diane Keaton according to the official website. The special will premiere on TNT on Thursday, June 15, at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Sister network Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will encore the special on Monday, July 31, during a night of programming dedicated to Keaton’s work. Be sure to check your local listings for the time.
Variety – The younger folks were represented by Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon, and Lisa Kudrow who talked about how she mentored them. Witherspoon said she was given a “trifecta of advice”: have a natural sense of fashion, use physicality to create a character, and “permission to unapologetically be yourself.”
McAdams too was given three pieces of advice: “Get an assistant, don’t be too picky with men, and always wear your nicest underwear. I did, I’m working on it, and I’m wearing Spanx, I failed you there.”
Some fun facts: As you probably know, Rachel and Diane worked together twice already. In 2005 on “The Family Stone” and in 2010 on “Morning Glory“. To quote Elle Magazine, Diane seems to be Rachel’s “biggest fan” and she is frequently quoted by magazines for in-depth pieces on Rachel including for Elle in 2007 (“I hadn’t been that impressed with someone since I worked with Meryl Streep”) and Vogue in 2009 (““Such a brilliant actress, she has that kind [as Meryl Streep] of intelligence.”). Rachel was cast in “Midnight in Paris” (2011) because of the “glowing” reports from Diane. It seems Rachel and Diane seem to have kept in touch over the years. Rachel said in 2009: “The first thing Diane [Keaton] always asks me is about my love life. I thwart her as I do everyone else.”
Rachel made a surprise appearance attending Diane Keaton’s AFI’s (American Film Institute) 45th Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute earlier tonight. While it appears she skipped the red carpet, Rachel took the stage to pay tribute to Diane, with whom she worked on “The Family Stone” (2005) and “Morning Glory” (2010). Other attendees include Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon and her former co-stars Emma Stone (Aloha) and Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers). We have the first look for you and added the first high quality images in our gallery. Rachel is wearing a Johanna Ortiz gown with Graziela Gems and EF Collection jewelry. We expect more additions later on, so be sure to keep checking back!

Rachel and her sister and make-up artist Kayleen McAdams are featured in the current issue (December 2) of The Hollywood Reporter. We have added the digital magazine scans, photoshoot outtakes and HD screencaptures of the behind the scenes video in our gallery. We also added the BTS video in our video archive, which is definitely worth the watch. Rachel and Kayleen play a game of ‘How Well Do You Know?’.
Rachel McAdams has played many iconic roles over the years — from the headstrong Allie in The Notebook to the manipulative Regina George in Mean Girls — but what would she be doing if she weren’t constantly shape-shifting?
During a game of “How Well Do You Know?” with her makeup artist, who also happens to be her sister, Kayleen McAdams, the actress revealed that she would lead a much simpler life — as a farmer.
The pair, who are featured in THR’s Beauty Issue, must have discussed the possibility in the past, because Kayleen had no problem coming up with the answer. As for knowing what Rachel eats for breakfast, that’s a different story.
“Kayleen has a very calming effect on me,” says Rachel. “Spending two hours with her beforehand sets me for the night.” Responds Kayleen: “I like to know I can help calm you before you go out there because there’s a lot coming at you.”
As we previously reported, Rachel narrated the upcoming “Anne of Green Gables” audiobook. Audible released an official excerpt, which you can find after the jump. You can already pre-order the audiobook on audible. We have added the official key-art and Rachel on-set in the studio in our gallery. The audiobook will be released on November 22nd.
Rachel On Narrating Anne Of Green Gables: “Performing Anne Of Green Gables was incredibly exciting. It contains so much emotion and delight that you just can’t help but smile, and laugh, and cry. Loving the book as I did growing up, it was such a pleasure to perform it now.”
Rachel made an appearance on Good Morning America earlier this week to promote “Doctor Strange” alongside her lovely co-star Tilda Swinton. We have added the interview in our video archive and screencaptures in our gallery. The interview was prerecorded when the cast was in Los Angeles earlier this month.
