We reported you earlier today with a preview of Rachel’s upcoming Elle Magazine cover of June which will hit newsstands May 17th. Elle Magazine just released the editorial photoshoot for the cover to their official website and the first excerpts of the interview.
The editorial is stunning, the styling and lighting is amazing and it’s nothing like we seen before. We added all the released images in our gallery. The excerpts can be found below as well and be sure to read the all excerpts.
Update: We just came across another image of this shoot, she looks stunning thanks to ofalltime @ tumblr. The photos were taken by photographer Alexei Hay and styled by Joe Zee.
Rachel McAdams: The Romantic
Woody Allen wrote a movie for her. Diane Keaton is her biggest fan. She’s fronted blockbuster romcoms, seduced mouthwatering stars, and made girls old and young believe that we, too, will get swept up in an epic love story one day. Tom Shone finds Rachel McAdams 2,168 miles from the L.A. limelight
On working with Owen Wilson: “It’s definitely a different dynamic from the last time we were together. It wasn’t as fun being mean. I love that Woody likes good guys to be good guys and bad guys to be bad guys. Owen seemed to respond really well when I was a really bad guy.”
On finding inspiration in her parents’ marriage: “[They are] Still together and still in love. I’m very blessed that way. I had a great example of love in front of me, and that’s probably what makes me such a romantic, because I’ve seen it firsthand.”
On her expectations for relationships: “You grow up and you assume that everyone is like that, and you quickly realize that they’re not, and then you have those days when you wonder if you’re going to find it for yourself. It’s such a hard thing to find. I think it was more that realization that rocked me.”
