She may be a big-name movie star, but in an ideal world, Rachel McAdams would be on the other side of the screen.
“1995, on a sofa,” she tells Vogue’s January issue when asked about her perfect day. “I grew up watching so much television. I was really into soap operas. I’d begin with Days of our Lives, then Another World, and finish off with General Hospital. And before dinner I’d watch <em>Oprah</em>.”
In fact, it was a wonder McAdams, 31, passed high school at all, she says.
“I would fake sick all the time to the point where I’d convince myself I was sick,” the star of Sherlock Holmes says. “In high school I really didn’t pay attention. I took the bare minimum to get by.”
