One-time figure skater McAdams, 24, escaped her small Canadian town of St. Thomas through Shakespeare camp. Up north, she was cast in subdued girl-next-door parts, but Hollywood fancies her to play rich debutantes with extreme personalities.
What’s special about her? “I look like an angel, but I can play the bitch.”
What does she want? “I want to push the envelope and see what I can get out of life but also live relatively normally.”
Upcoming films: “Mean Girls” (April 2), “The Notebook” (July 30)
