Amy Kaufman from the Los Angeles Times sat down with Rachel to promote “Southpaw” and “True Detective“. The interview also features quotes from her co-stars Colin Farrel & Jake Gyllenhaal and “Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy. We have added the first photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the full interview in our press archive. Excerpts can be found below.
On her imagined career: “But it [becoming a movie star] wasn’t something I really meditated on or planned for in any way. I really thought I’d be doing theater in Canada. I’d grown up doing children’s theater there, and I always imagined myself being artistic director of a children’s theater company.”
On being ‘picky’ with roles: “If I’m picky, it’s for that reason. I want to be able to bring my best to the table. So if I’m not connecting to something, then I’m not gonna hold up my end of the bargain, and that’s really embarrassing.”
On Marvel’s Doctor Strange Rumors: “It’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all.”

So now Rachel is confirming the rumors and that she is considering the role, but that it’s in the “super-early stages” and that nothing is official yet.

Mark Ruffalo attended the Giffoni Film Festival in Italy earlier this week and received the Giffoni Experience Award. Various Italian sources – including Fare Film – are reporting that he revealed his next movie “Spotlight” is selected for this year’s Venice Film Festival. THR also confirms the reports:
Ruffalo can next be seen in Tom McCarthy’s Spotlight, with Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and Michael Keaton, about how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive cover-up of child molestation within the Catholic church. He hinted the film will screen in the upcoming Venice Fim Festival in September.
The 72nd edition of the festival runs from September 2-12 and the official line-up will be announced next Wednesday, July 29th. Let’s hope the movie is indeed heading to Venice.
