‘The Notebook’s Rachel McAdams is the face of the April 2007 issue of Elle Magazine – pink streaks and all. Rachel provides the magazine with quite an interesting interview, speaking of her motives behind her fabulous career choices. Oh and apparently, according to Rachel’s mum, against what IMDB would have us believe, lil Ms. McAdams is in fact 28 years of age, not 30.

Below is a paragraph from the beautiful magazine, provided thanks to So read on and enjoy:

 “I’m not going to make movies just to make movies,” McAdams says. (She’s turned down loads of roles, including the romantic leads in Mission Impossible 2 and Casino Royale. Anne Hathaway’s part in the Devil Wears Prada, and Agent 99 in the upcoming Get Smart, starring Steve Carell.) “I have to be passionate about it. And at the same time, I can get very distracted when I’m working, and I like to get back to my life a lot — a love-wise life with Ryan Gosling that she fictionalised in The Notebook in 2004 and factualized with him quite a while after the movie. Two years-ish to be exact. She’s a serious sort, not one to have her head spun on a set all flibbertigibbety, hand-feeling the tabloids. They’re a well-matched pair of hearts. She admires him. Her cheeks bloom when she speaks of his Oscar nomination for Half Nelson. “He did such an amazing job,” McAdams says, her voice positively aching. “He worked so hard, too! He never does the same thing twice. He’s very brave. I don’t think he sees the point [in taking a role] unless he can find out what he’s made of every time. He just doesn’t back off. He goes into everything from that place.”
