Rachel alongside her co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Oona Lawurence and director Antoine Fuqua attended a “Southpaw” discussion panel last week hosted by the Academy/Oscars at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The Academy released their video which we have added in our video archive. We also made high definition screencaptures which can be found in our gallery.
“Southpaw” will be out next week, on July 24 (US & UK).
Rachel has been busy this week with the promotion of “Southpaw” in Los Angeles. We have added the first released press junket interview of the first day of press on July 13 in our video archive, including interviews with Screen Slam and Access Hollywood. Rachel has revealed she did a ‘little bit of training and boxing’ for the movie to prepare for her role and continued this workout for “True Detective“.
The movie will have it’s New York premiere on Monday, July 20 according to Average Socialite. Let’s hope Rachel will attend. We are currently working on more (video) updates – so stay tuned!
Rachel recently spoke to Variety during the “Southpaw” press junket and she also discussed Sunday’s episode of “True Detective“. The full interview can be found in our press archive and an excerpt below. It’s a discussion of one of the major scenes of Sunday’s episode, so be aware of spoilers if you haven’t watched it yet.
HBO’s crime drama “True Detective” has now become famous for its intense action scenes, with the bloody shootout involving Rachel McAdams’ SWAT officer Ani Bezzerides in Sunday’s episode being no exception.
While the episode certainly got the adrenaline flowing in fans, it was especially grueling to film for McAdams.
“That one took about five days,” the actress told Variety while promoting her drama “Southpaw.” “That was pretty intense. I actually puked during that scene. When I was running and reloading my gun — it actually wound up being about 200 yards, it was like two football fields — and I was just going all out and we did it a couple of times.”

Rachel is gracing the cover of the current issue of Stylist UK magazine (July 15, 2015) to promote the release of “Southpaw“. She also discussed “Aloha” and “True Detective“. It features a brand new photoshoot and in-depth interview. We have added the (digital) magazine scans, first photoshoot outtakes and on-set image in our gallery. The interview has been added in our press archive and an excerpt can be found below. Fun fact: Rachel’s make-up for the shoot was done by her sister Kayleen, on request of Rachel herself.
From Mean Girls to True Detective, Rachel McAdams could give a TED talk on how to navigate Hollywood. But it’s her off-screen approach to life that we’d like to emulate.
You can imagine Rachel McAdams living and loving in the Seventies. From the solar panels she is having fitted, to an affinity for backpacking, from the fact that cycling is her default mode of transport to her love of Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac, it’s clear she’s a free spirt – albeit a very grounded one – who has rejected many of the traditional trappings of Hollywood.
