Rachel McAdams Talks About Work, Family and the Importance of Savings

Rachel McAdams owes it all to her parents.  “The Notebook” and HBO’s “True Detective” star recently went on record on everything from her family life to her economic habits. Read on to find out more.

McAdams spoke about her personal life and work in an interview with the Belfast Telegraph, recently. In the interview, she talks about the demanding nature of her work.


“There’s really some wonderful things about the business. It’s a really fun job. It’s fun to dress up in the clothes and participate in the glitz and the glamour sometimes, but I couldn’t do it all the time. I would be exhausted.” McAdams said.

The Canadian actress also expressed gratitude for her strong ties with her family. In her own words, “We all ate dinner together every single night and my mom stayed at home with us. I owe a lot to my parents.”

McAdams also spoke about her savings habit during the interview.

“My parents opened a bank account for me when I was really little. I think I paid for some of my university education with my savings. I’ve always been a bit of a saver.” McAdams said.

She also gushed on “Southpaw” co-star Jake Gyllenhaal calling him incredibly “cerebral” and “just a real artist.” McAdams, as Movie News Guide reported, trained in boxing for her role in the movie. She said she did the movie because she was attracted to the character.

The 36-year-old actor hit the spotlight with her breakout performance as the evil leader of a high school clique, “Mean Girls.” Since then, McAdams has been typecast as the love interest in movies like “The Notebook” and “About Time.” However, she refuses to be pegged into one hole. She has delivered exceptional performance to a vast array of characters, from a snobbish socialite in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris,” to a beleaguered cop in the second season of “True Detective.”
