It’s been a while since we’ve seen Rachel McAdams. Here she is at LAX yesterday. Not pictured but present, Jamie Linden, her boyfriend. Since she and Jamie started dating, it feels to me like she’s been spending more time in Los Angeles. Before, if she didn’t need to be, Rachel kept away from Hollywood, preferring to stay in Canada. Still, even though she’s probably been in LA more than she used to be, it’s not like we’re seeing pap shots of her every day. In fact, she’s not papped often at all, proving yet again that it is possible to avoid being photographed, if that is actually what you want.
Back in January, Rachel was in London shooting Disobedience with Rachel Weisz. The two play lovers in the film based on the book by Naomi Alderman. From there Rachel McAdams will move on to a comedy, Game Night, with Jason Bateman, about a group of friends who get together every week to play board games and end up having to solve a murder. If you count these two projects as the follow-ups to Doctor Strange and Spotlight, Rachel’s career plan over the last two years looks like this: Oscar-winning ensemble drama, superhero blockbuster, independent female-driven drama, broad comedy ensemble.
