McAdams stars in ‘State of Play,’ ‘Sherlock Holmes,’ and ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife,’ making her one of the busiest actresses in Hollywood. Below is an interview that she done for the awards show, hope you enjoy!

How do you feel about receiving the Female Star of the Year award?

Rachel McAdams: “I feel amazing. I’m really flattered and I was kind of shocked, actually. I was in New Zealand when I found out and it was like my two world’s colliding and I just hadn’t expected it so it was really flattering, yeah.”

With all the amazing actors in State of Play and Sherlock Holmes, who were you most excited to get to work with?

Rachel McAdams: “You’re going to make pick? That’s really hard to say honestly. I’ve been a big fan for a long time of a lot of people in State of Play, of Jason Bateman and Robin Wright Penn. I don’t want to name names because I was excited about everyone. And I think I was most excited to work with Robert Downey just because he’s just so damned great. I just knew he was going to be so much fun.”

What can we expect from Sherlock Holmes?

Rachel McAdams: “Well, I think it’s going to be… I think what I enjoyed most from the little bit that I saw was that Jude [Law] and Robert are lovely together. And I think that if anyone had preconceived notions about what Sherlock Holmes and Watson and that duo should be, I think they’ll be completely eradicated by their performances, both separately and together. And it looks amazing. It looks s really amazing. And I think, you know, maybe there’s concern with period pieces sometimes that they won’t grab the audience, but it just looks stunning.”
