It's a shame that Rachel McAdams isn't a bigger star. She has been a female lead in major movies for about a decade now, and while many of them are in support of larger male stars, she is memorable and holds her own in such favorites as The Notebook, Wedding Crashers and the Sherlock Holmes franchise.
This month she appears in theaters in her third time-travel rom-com in five years, and she may actually be the biggest name in the new release About Time. Hopefully she has a lot of fans out there who'll be drawn in primarily by her beauty and talent.
Perhaps some of you are big fans of her work, which also includes a terrific comedic performance in Mean Girls and the more politically minded State of Play and The Lucky Ones. Oh, and let's not forget she played the girl who switches bodies with Rob Schneider in The Hot Chick.
Okay, she's come a long way since then. In recent years she butted heads with Harrison Ford in Morning Glory, got romantic with Channing Tatum in The Vow and with Eric Bana in The Time Traveler's Wife, and reunited with Wedding Crashers costar Owen Wilson for Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris. McAdams also stars in Brian De Palma's latest thriller, Passion, which just hit home video this week.
Yet her most popular movies have seemed to remain her two early breakouts, Mean Girls and The Notebook.
