Three Questions With Rachel McAdams

Rachel McAdams

You may have already read my review of the new adorable film About Time (out November 8th!), but I was also lucky enough to also interview the lovely Rachel McAdams.  Here are my three questions with the movie lead.

Q: If you could go back in time, what would you change?

A: I wouldn’t go back and paraglide.  I was thinking about that the other day, those mistakes you wouldn’t make again, yes.  No, that one, I really wouldn’t do that again, yes.  That was terrifying.

Q: What’s something that you’d want to relive?

A: My dad had to go away for work sometimes, and we recorded on our little Fisher Price recorder a tape for him to put in his truck when he was driving.  And we sang jingles from our favorite cartoons.  And they both had big spaces between their teeth when they were little.  And my brother, I’ll never forget this, singing Thunder Cats, Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thunder Cats.  And it was so cute.

Q: How did it feel to play a time traveler’s wife again?

A: Well, I didn’t know anything about time travel in this one, so…ignorance was bliss in this one.  It’s funny.  I don’t know what that’s about.  Subconsciously, I’m going towards time travel all the time but I’m never the time traveler.




I love nothing more than a romantic comedy and so, naturally, the movie ABOUT TIME is right up my alley.  ABOUT TIME (a film from Richard Curtis, the creator of Love Actually, Notting Hill, and Four Weddings and a Funeral) tells the story of a  man who has a  gift that allows him to go back and relive any moment of his life. But instead of making every moment perfect, he learns that life and love are most extraordinary when you embrace all of its imperfections.  There was something about the fact the he embraced the imperfections that really resonated with me.  I got to thinking about SO MANY moments that I would love to relive and, of course, edit to be a more perfect version…but then I think about how those awkward and imperfect moments have really shaped who I am as a person, and I wouldn’t want to change that.  Plus, Rachel McAdams is always amazing and critics are already calling ABOUT TIME “the first must-see movie of the fall” and “easily the most heartwarming, feel-great film of the season.”

ABOUT TIME opens on November 8th!
