The anniversary of Rachel McAdams' breakout movie "Mean Girls" led to the revealing of some interesting information about this talented actress from Mark Waters, the director of the film and showed that even at at the beginning of her career she was a consummate and tough minded professional. When people listen to Rachel McAdams interviews she is a very nice, personable individual but when she went to audition with Lindsey Lohan for the movie "Mean Girls" she acted the part even before the audition had started.
Rachel McAdams did not speak to Lindsey Lohan even when they were sitting beside each other and basically was in character the moment she entered the room. This seemed to unnerve the young, less experienced Lindsey Lohan and the directors noticed this dynamic even before the auditions began and this helped them select Rachel McAdams as one of the "queen bees".
When stories such as this become public it helps people understand why Rachel McAdams has been able to be so successful in her career. To be a great actress one must possess exceptional focus and Rachel McAdams as an actress still in the process of making a name for herself within Hollywood demonstrated this in an audition when in most situations an individual would enter the room and prior to the audition might talk with others before the directors ask them to begin. Rachel McAdams entered the "Mean Girls" audition in character and she has maintained that professionalism throughout her career.
In 2014 Rachel McAdams has been receiving critical acclaim for her performance in the independent movie "A Most Wanted Man" and is busy providing the voice of one of the characters in the animation movie "The Little Prince" while she awaits the release of two of her other completed projects that are in post-production, "Everything Will Be Fine" and the "Untitled Cameron Crowe Project".
It is not hard to believe that Rachel McAdams is a star partly due to the fact that within this sweet, innocent, beautiful actress is a very intense, competitive fire but it serves as a lesson for all actresses that the audition begins the moment you receive the opportunity to walk in the room.
