Here at PopWatch we’re committed to keeping you informed about the things you may not need to know, but that you want to know. So yes, go ahead and guess which of your favorite actresses worked at McDonald’s…
The answer is The Vow‘s Rachel McAdams. The February Glamour cover girl confirms that she worked at the Golden Arches for “a good three years” as a teen. Her sister and brother also worked there. In fact, her sister was her 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,” she tells Glamour. 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.”
Other essential info from the cover story:
• She uses film roles as an excuse to take classes. She got her certification in sailing for Wedding Crashers. “And now I can handle a 26-foot boat,” she says.
• She used to be a soap fan. “I loved soap operas when I was young, so Antonio Sabato Jr. and Maurice Benard from General Hospital,” she says, when asked if she’s ever crushed on actors. “And who could forget Josh Brolin in The Goonies?”
If you need another reason to adore her, may we remind you of the Stanley Cup Finals’ Rachel McAdams Cam.
