Education and Career

Rachel McAdams was born as Rachel Anne McAdams on Nov. 17, 1978. Her father’s name is Lance McAdams, while her mother was Sandra. His dad was a professional mover and her mother was a nurse.

Rachel also has siblings, specifically one brother, and one sister. Rachel’s sister’s name is Kayleen, while her brother is named Daniel. Her passion for acting started out when she was still young, specifically at the age of 12.

Things went even better for her when she studied in high school as she started acting in the school’s local productions. It was at this time that she knew what she wanted to become in life, and that is to become a famous actress.

And so, she furthered her passion and enrolled at Toronto’s York University. The degree she took was theater. It served her just right as she excelled in her studies.  This eventually led to her performing in student film productions as well as different stage events.

McAdams’ first major achievement was in 2002 for her role in “Perfect Pie.” It was a momentous event for her as she managed to be nominated for the Genie Award. It was Canada’s equivalent of America’s Oscar award.

This prompted her to pursue her passion, and so, she worked even harder to get bigger deals and to build connections with big-time producers and filmmakers.

Her first major breakthrough happened two years after, in 2002, when she was chosen to take the role of Regina George for the top-grossing movie, “Mean Girls.” The film was hugely successful because the plot was relatable to the masses.

Also, the talent of its ensemble cast was too much for its rival movies at that time to overthrow. Thanks to the film’s success, Rachel managed to get bigger film offers from all sides.

Well, that’s just what happened as she subsequently played major roles on a number of other top-grossing films. Some of which are “The Red Eye,” “Wedding Crashers,” “Notebook,” and “The Family Stone.”

These films were later regarded as cult films by their fans due to their fame’s enormity and effect on pop culture. Then in 2007, Rachel had gone through more film successes such as with her film “Married Life.”

She also had three more movies in 2009, all of which proved to be huge hits. These were “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” “State of Play,” and “Sherlock Holmes.” These films just proved that she got what it takes to take on different roles, whether it be action, comedy, or romance.

She also appeared in Woody Allen’s hit movie, “Midnight in Paris,” where she took the role of Inez, one of the film’s main characters. Her prominence in drama and love story movies proved to be great, which is why she managed to land more romantic films.

She later appeared in “Passion,” “Vow,” “Aloha,” “A Most Wanted Man,” and “Southpaw.” Then in 2018, Rachel started to dwell onto other genres as she appeared in the comedy movie, “Game Night.”

However, this wasn’t enough to limit her capabilities as she then took over the main character’s role in romantic movie, “Disobedience.” Her versatility in tackling different kinds of roles showed how effective she is when it comes to acting.

Net Worth and Salary

Rachel McAdams has been in the film and movie industry for quite some time. With this, it wouldn’t be a surprise why she wouldn’t be able to amass fortunes. In fact, she earns by the millions of dollars from her different sources of income, and not just with acting.

Thanks to this, she can maintain living a lavish and luxurious lifestyle. Her acting career on movies and TV started way back in 2001. Because of this, Rachel managed to have a net worth of around $16 million.

However, many say that her net worth is more than that because of her undeclared wealth in the form of different assets like houses, properties, and businesses which aren’t directly under her name.

Her list of top-grossing films also doesn’t end there as she had also been a part of Marvel’s hit superhero movie, “Dr. Strange.” It was a huge blockbuster hit in 2016 as it earned a box office income of $200 million.

That, however, isn’t the only time that she earned big as her 2005 film, “Wedding Crashers,” earned $180 million in the box office. Furthermore, Rachel is also very active in her social media accounts such as in her Instagram and Twitter.

Many say that this is one of the reasons why she continues to amass millions of dollars as passive income because of her skyrocketing growth both in traditional and social media methods.

McAdams currently has more than 60,000 followers on Twitter and more than 150,000 Instagram followers. Her number of followers also continues to increase by the day.

In addition, McAdams also started dating Josh Lucas, an American actor. They dated in 2009 and eventually ended after a few months. Some say that their relationship wasn’t too deep as they only treated each other like special friends.

Rachel seemed like a living love potion as she had a subsequent relationship with Michael Sheen after that. Their relationship went on for three years, from 2010 to 2013. Then she dated Patrick Sambrook, a music manager from Canada.

Their relationship didn’t last long as it only took around one year, from 2013 to 2014.
