I knew I liked Rachel McAdams....

You know, I have always had a like for Rachel McAdams. She was excellent in The Notebook. I loved everything about her. She is beautiful. She seems so REAL. She's a great actress... and I have always thought she had class. She can pull off any look, any style, any era. But for some reason, I like her even more after this. I read this back when they shot the Vanity Fair cover, but since MSN is touching on it again, I decided I should blog.

Am I like really upset one way or the other that Keira and Scarlett are nude on the cover? Not particularly. But I see that Rachel mcAdams did what she thought was the right thing. I suppose she would rather be known for her acting and talent than as one of three naked women on the cover of Vanity Fair (Ala Demi Moore, eh?)

So there were excerpts of the MSN article which I enjoyed. Particularly...

What you won't see is a third, equally lovely young actress, Rachel McAdams of "Wedding Crashers" fame. It seems McAdams arrived at the photo shoot and decided she didn't want to take her clothes off.And so, sitting between Johansson and Knightley is fashion designer Tom Ford, the issue's guest editor. He nuzzles Knightley's ear and, though he shows plenty of chest hair, is fully clothed. Presumably, no one thought of asking HIM to disrobe.Is it arty and fun, or does it say something about sexual politics in Hollywood? In 2006, four decades after the launch of the feminist movement, does a serious actress still need to take her clothes off to get attention?And where, oh where, are the naked men?The reason female stars disrobe is simple, says Janice Min, editor of the much-read celebrity magazine US Weekly. "It's tried and true. You show some cleavage on an actress. You make her look sexy. You make her look hot." She NEEDS to be hot — because in Hollywood, "you have to be sexy to be a successful actress. You just have to be." So where's the nude photo of Brad Pitt? Or George Clooney, who appears later in the issue, dressed, amid a bevy of women in flesh-toned bras and panties? Let's face it, Min says: Women do like to see sexy men — just not with all their clothes off. "Men just aren't viewed as sex objects in the same way that women are," Min says. "Women don't think about men being naked in the same way that men think about women." In fact, she says, at her magazine's offices, when photos come in of a male star with no shirt on, "We say, 'Gross! Put some clothes on!'" (Imagine that being uttered about an attractive female.)

I admit that I fell in like with Rachel McA in The Hot Chick. Yes, the one with the "making copieeeeees" guy. I was initially forced to watch it under duress...and have since seen it like four times. So sue me! It's funny!

Thanks so much for coming by my place and for the nice comment. You're welcome back any time and you don't even have to take your shoes off when you come in. (And WOW your site looks amazing!)
