Rachel McAdams is beautiful

Rachel McAdams is beautiful

In 2005, she played Owen Wilson's love interest in Wedding Crashers and then starred in the suspense thriller Red Eye as Lisa Reisert. She played a young woman held captive aboard a red-eye flight by criminal-for-hire and assassin Jackson Rippner (Cillian Murphy). Her most recent role was in the comedy The Family Stone where she starred in an ensemble cast alongside Diane Keaton, Craig T. Nelson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Dermot Mulroney, Luke Wilson, Brian J. White and Claire Danes. McAdams auditioned for the role of "Sue Storm" in Fantastic Four (film), and she almost got it, but lost out to Jessica Alba at the last minute.

Rachel's career slowed down in 2006. She was originally signed on as the female lead in The Last Kiss but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, and the role was given to Jacinda Barrett. She decided to take a year off from acting, to spend time with friends and family. McAdams then signed on to star in the drama Married Life (film) across Pierce Brosnan and Patricia Clarkson. She turned down the role of bond girl "Vesper Lynd" in the James Bond film Casino Royale. McAdams was also in-talks to star in Iron Man and The Dark Knight, but she declined both roles. She stated in an interview sometime in May 2006 that she didn't want to star in a big-budget action film because she wanted to pursue other projects.

Despite having appeared nude or topless in a few of her movie scenes, McAdams opted out of a cover shoot for Vanity Fair — in which she was to appear alongside two other young Hollywood actresses, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley — upon finding out it was to be nude. Tom Ford, artistic director for the cover, instead appeared with them. When McAdams appeared on set and discovered it was nude, she politely declined, according to Knightley.

She is currently in final-negotiations to join Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helen Mirren, in the drama State of Play, which will start filming during the first week of November. McAdams is going to film both movies back-to-back.

McAdams currently lives in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
