The January issue of Vogue, on newsstands nationwide by December 22, features Rachel McAdams, the star of the highly anticipated Sherlock Holmes. The Canadian actress keeps track of her day by writing in her diary before going to bed. Since she is such a famously private, relatively reclusive star, one can’t help speculating what she writes about. In the style of her Keel’s Simple Diary (with fill-in-the-blanks, multiple choices, and other quirky ways to keep records), Vogue’s Sally Singer gives us a peek inside the mind behind Hollywood’s freshest face.
Highlights from the article:
On working with Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls:
“I just remember marveling about how much she knew as an actor, how much she understood. She did very few takes and had this naturalness to her. And beyond that, I was 26 at the time. I’d be asked, ‘Where do you go out?’ ” McAdams was the exact opposite of her Mean Girls character, the evil Regina George: “My mother never put an emphasis on looks. She let us grow up on our own time line. She never forced any beauty regimen into my world.” McAdams was teased in high school for not shaving her legs. “ ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’ she asked her mom. Mom: ‘Once you start, there’s no turning back.’ ”
The actress on being green:
“I don’t really desire things, I prefer to spend my money on experiences, on meals or travel. . . . I look at the world through a green lens now. But you can’t make yourself crazy. That feeling of green guilt can be really inhibiting. It’s about a changing mind-set, remembering to turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth.”
McAdams describes her perfect day:
“1995, on the sofa: ‘I grew up watching so much television. I was really into soap operas. I’d begin with Days of our Lives, then Another World, and finish off with General Hospital. And before dinner I’d watch Oprah. I would fake sick all the time to the point where I’d convince myself I was sick. In high school I really didn’t pay attention. I took the bare minimum to get by.”
