We added the magazine scans of Rachel in the French Première in our gallery, thanks to Camillou. She spoke to the magazine while she was in Paris to promote “Morning Glory“. We tried to translate the interview into english, but since I use my ‘high-school French’ it’s not perfect and loosely translated but it’s a really nice interview and definitely worth the read. She explains the career choices the makes and wants to make, and finding the balance between work and her personal life.
You travel a lot, you are popular, respected in the industry, featured in a big movie like Morning Glory but haven’t become a complete celebrity. Do you think it’s better like that?
It’s hard to find a balance. You have to be present in a effective way, so the public wants to go and see your movies when they come out. You have to create the desire but not extend it so people will get tired of you … It’s really difficult to become an actor who can make a living for themselves by acting. I never wanted to be famous, I never seek for the attention, the public loves the glitter and glamor. In the past, an actor could be successful while maintaining a private life.
This is happening for you, right?
Yes, but for that I force myself not to be socially involved in Hollywood, if I did so I would probably have more work then I wanted. Because if you disappear for a long time from the radar, you get off the radar completely … It’s the balance I mentioned before that I am trying to achieve. And if that means you will never become a actor like Nicole Kidman or Julia Robers I am fine with that. It’s the career that suits me more. I want my privacy.

Diary she would love to read:
“I would never actually read anyone’s diary, but I would be fascinated to step into Rachel McAdams’s shoes. We’re both from Ontario and studied in Toronto so I’d be interested to know what her process, achievements, and hardships have been throughout the years. She’s a great talent who holds her own opposite names such as Robert Downey Jr., Diane Keaton, Eric Bana, and Harrison Ford.”

For Rachel McAdams, another Canadian actor, “Christmas is usually pretty much the same. I’m always with my family in Canada. We do the big Christmas dinner.”
With a chuckle, she revealed: “We still have the stockings—we can’t seem to let go of the stockings. My mom was like, ‘You are 30 plus. It’s time to put the stockings away.’ My brother, sister and I were like, ‘No, we love the stockings.’ That’s our favorite part, so what we do is everyone buys something for each other’s stockings. We all contribute something special so it’s not just my mom going out and buying.”
She likes to cook, stressed Rachel, who top-billed “Morning Glory.” “I like to do the sweet potatoes. We take turns with the duties every year, from setting the table to cooking.”
