Rachel made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday evening, like we reported before, to promote Terrence Malick’s “To The Wonder“. We added the photos of her outside the studios in Hollywood in our gallery and you can (re)watch the interview in our media archive. We will add the HD screen captures as soon as possible.
While working on our new media archive I realized that I never added the videos of Rachel during the Toronto International Film Festival back in September of this year. Be sure to watch all the TIFF 2012 videos under our ‘TIFF 2012’ tag. She did some great interviews to promote “Passion” and “To The Wonder” at the festival including with Variety Studio, THR and Vanity Fair.
We are slowly moving our videos to our new archive, so be sure to frequently check out our latest uploads. We already have +80 videos for you to watch!
We added the magazine scans of Rachel’s Vs. Magazine cover shot by Drew Barrymore. We also added the full interview in our press archive, be sure to read it as well. It’s a fun conversation between Rachel and Drew. Rachel also talks about working with Terrence Malick, what characters she prefers to play and doing a German dialect for “A Most Wanted Man“.
She can play America’s sweetheart like no other – see The Vow and The Notebook – but Rachel McAdams is also the rare actress in Hollywood who can say she’s worked with Woody Allen and is on a first-name basis with a certain Palme d’or winning auteur, one “Terry” Malick. In the second part of our Vs. trilogy Drew’s Muses, the actress-director-photographer, and certainly the most entertaining interviewer you’ll ever meet Drew Barrymore, cast her in the one role that’s totally uncharted territory: Pirelli pin-up girl as we remember it from the 90s.

We want to ask you to credit us when you use the scans or transcript of the interview in our press archive. We made the scans exclusively for our site.
Rachel only did a few interviews while she was attending the Toronto International Film Festival to promote “Passion” and “To The Wonder” including a round table interview but the first interviews are released online. We added them in our press archive, so be sure to check them all out.
She did a phone interview with Entertainment Weekly and talked about her upcoming movie “A Most Wanted Man” which will start filming next Wednesday (September 19) in Hamburg, Germany:
“It’s in Hamburg, which I’ve never been to before, and where the book is set,” said McAdams. “Philip Seymour is in it, whom I’m over the moon I get to meet and work with. She’s a great character, this German lawyer. She’s a big bike rider, so I’ll ride around the city a lot.”
Los Angeles Times published two articles with quotes from Rachel talking about “Passion” and “To The Wonder“. IndieWire published a nice round-up from Rachel and Olga Kurylenko’s “To The Wonder” round table interview.
McAdams’ role is fairly small, and she gets as little dialogue as the rest of the cast, but she says she knew what she’d be in for. “Terry told me the role would be smallish,” the actress said, “so it freed me up to go in and have a good time, and not expect too much in that way… I think he’s a lot like a sculptor, he brings a lot of clay in, like way more than anyone would ever need, and allows the story to reveal itself to him. Which I think is beautiful, and brave. I think he’s just collecting. Collecting great things.”
We will add more interview once they will be released in our press archive, and we are currently working on the video coverage and be sure to look out for more photo additions this weekend as well.
“The Vow” was released on DVD/Blu-Ray in the UK today. It features the same extras as the U.S. version, go to our original post for more information on them. So if you live in the UK be sure to pick up your own copy! The Metro and Huffington Post UK released their interview with Rachel to promote the release, we added them both in our press archive.
The Vow star Rachel McAdams talks about filming with Channing Tatum, how he surprised her with a prosthetic penis and what she looks for in a man.
Rachel McAdams has found her big-screen niche as a very specific kind of fairytale heroine – a big-eyed beauty who can’t fail to bring out the protective side in her admirers, yet succeeds in keeping female fans on side, too. She could be a natural successor for the title of America’s sweetheart after a catalogue of hits – The Time Traveller’s Wife, The Notebook are the biggies – but she’s also displayed a comic turn – Sherlock Holmes, Morning Glory, Midnight in Paris.
Don’t forget to vote every day for Rachel at the Teen Choice Awards 2012. She is nominated for Choice Movie Actress: Drama and Choice Movie Actress: Romance for “The Vow“; go to TeenChoiceAwards.com to vote!
Hello! Magazine UK published a new interview with Rachel, taken during one of the press days in Los Angeles, to promote “The Vow“. She talks about wedding vows, dating, her house and more. We added the scan in our gallery, thanks to Laura!
Some of the interview highlights can be found below, but be sure to read the full interview in our press archive.
What attracts you in a boyfriend?
First and foremost, a sense of humor. You can have passion, you can have interest in common, and all the other good things. But if it’s to be a long-term relationship, then you’re going to need something to get you through the trials and tribulations. The ability to laugh together and not to take everything too seriously is essential. It’s a way to connect that forgives a lot of other things, and it allows you to move on much more quickly if there’s a problem.
You both travel a lot. Is that a problem for you?
It can be a challenge, but the nature of our job is living like a gypsy, so we’re more or less used to it by now. It keeps life interesting and exciting and you get to see the world. But for me, I don’t like to do two jobs back to back. I like having time in between jobs to go home to Toronto and unwind and reconnect with family and friends. That’s very important to me.
Are you still friends with your old boyfriends?
Yes, absolutely. There’s no one who’s ever been significantly in my life for whom I don’t have a sort of tenderness because they helped to shape who I am. However long some is in your life, they’re there to teach us something and I try to make the most of any relationship.
