Rachel McAdams in a recent interview with Marie Claire published in People magazine revealed an interesting insight into what type of characters she wants to play when she revealed that she loves the gritty, complex aspect of her character and the fact that the role revolves around the character's professional life and nothing else.
Entertainment fans and some observers are getting the 'vibe' that she has no interest in playing the loyal, dutiful wife or girlfriend in her projects and much prefers playing characters such as Ani Bezzerides, a focused, edgy Ventura, California police officer in the critically acclaimed television series "True Detective" who has no regard for the feelings of those around her as she investigates her cases.
To some fans it seems as if Rachel McAdams is more interested in portraying characters who are more gritty, darker, 'rough-around-the-edges' individuals than entertainment viewers may be accustomed to seeing her play. She is so intent on being able to deemed 'believable' in these roles that she has made the deliberate step of keeping her 'personal' life out of the media spotlight so that there is some 'mystery' associated with her when she takes on a role and people willl not watch a movie with any stereotypes of what type of character she might play or personality they will see in one of her characters (Xpose.ie - May 17).
Her embracing the playing of a complex, edgy police detective in "True Detective" has fans and entertainment observers very impressed with her focus on becoming an actress whom fans cannot predict what type of role she will play.
Some actors are so imprisoned by their fame and popularity that they can only be the 'good', nice character in a film and it seems obvious that this is one fate that Rachel McAdams has no intention of allowing to happen to her.
Rachel McAdams, an actress who refuses to be 'defined' or predictable to entertainment viewers, one of the many reasons she is one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood.
