On the homestretch when it comes to promoting their new movie, Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum teamed up on the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of “The Vow” on Monday night (February 6).
Held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the undeniably attractive co-stars posed alongside one another during the Tinseltown event while Channing then reconvened with wife Jenna Dewan prior to the film’s screening.
“To play Paige honestly is a tightrope to walk,” Tatum says. “Then I realized, after I got to know [McAdams], that so much of her loveliness comes out in whatever character she does.”
Other stars turning up to check out the Michael Sucsy directed romantic drama included E! realty stars sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, as well as Teresa Palmer and Bella Thorne.
As for Channing and Rachel’s new movie, “The Vow” finds “a car accident put Paige (McAdams) in a coma, and when she wakes up with severe memory loss, her husband Leo (Tatum) works to win her heart again.”
Making its way into theaters this Friday (February 10), Sucsy boasted in a recent interview that the film was aided by Tatum and McAdams’ natural chemistry, as he said, “You can manufacture things to make it seem like they have chemistry, but they have the real thing, so it’s always easier to add the details.”
Echoing these sentiments, Channing told, “To play Paige honestly is a tightrope to walk. Then I realized, after I got to know [McAdams], that so much of her loveliness comes out in whatever character she does.”
Fresh off of the release of her new movie “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” Rachel McAdams brings her charm to the cover of the February 2012 issue of Glamour magazine.
Clad in a Mavi shirt and Dolce & Gabbana shorts, the 33-year-old Canadian actress dolls up the Alexei Hay shot front page while opening up in the featured article about topics including her experience as a McDonald’s employee and past crushes on soap stars, as well as Josh Brolin.
Highlights from Rachel’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Glamour!
On whether she gets involved in creating her characters’ looks:
“Yeah, I love those preliminary conversations about who a character is. You try on wigs, shoes and clothes. It’s preferable when it’s not about looking pretty. It can get a little dull to just be cute. We talk about things like, maybe my character can’t afford these Christian Louboutins. [The stylist] will say, ‘No one will notice.” And I’m like, “Everyone knows that red-bottom shoe!’”
On whether playing serious or playing silly is more difficult:
“I think playing silly. I’m very silly as a person, but quality silliness on-screen has more of an art to it. Harrison Ford, whom I was in Morning Glory with, has mastered that dry funny better than anyone.”
On whether she worked at McDonald’s:
“Yeah, for a good three years. My sister and brother worked there. My sister was my manager! It was a great place to work, but I had a little bit of an OCD thing with hand washing and just didn’t have time. They were like, “Hey, the drive-through’s backing up. Stop washing your hands!” I was not a great employee; I broke the orange juice machine one day.”
On her all-time favorite romantic movie:
“Just one?! In the Mood for Love, Giant, Days of Heaven and the Russian film Burnt by the Sun. I can’t choose just one.”
On crushes she’s had on actors:
“I loved soap operas when I was young, so Antonio Sabato Jr. and Maurice Benard from General Hospital. And who could forget Josh Brolin in The Goonies?”
On what she’d do if she wasn’t acting?
“I wouldn’t mind running a restaurant. I’m not an amazing cook, but I can follow a recipe.”
She certainly was enjoyable to watch in “Sherlock Holmes,” but Rachel McAdams is unsure if she’ll be returning to the second one.
Sitting down with MTV News, “The Time Travelers Wife” star told, “It’s kind of all still in the process. They’re still doing script work, and we’ll see.”
“If I do, it won’t be a very big part,” she added. “It’s not a lead part.”
The Guy Ritchie-directed flick, which stars Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr, is set to hit theaters December 16, 2011.
