Rachel McAdams: retouching – no thanks!
Like everyone else, Rachel McAdam’s armpit hair grows. This is natural, normal and totally fine. Julia Roberts even appeared on the red carpet with armpit hair in 1999. So why should actors feel compelled to shave their armpit hair or touch it up out of photos today when we are so much further along in terms of body positivity? Even.
For Rachel McAdams’ recent photo shoot, the 44-year-old actress specifically requested that all images be retouched “minimally,” and the result is absolutely stunning. The images belong to an article of digital format”Bustle”, here you can see them all. This request is also in line with McAdams’ latest project, a film adaptation ofare you there god It’s Margaret”, a coming-of-age story about, among other things, puberty and how you treat your own body. A theme that McAdams can relate to.
“I felt like a milking machine,” she told the online magazine of her time on set, pumping between takes to feed her five-month-old daughter. After giving birth to her first child in 2017, she posed for another shoot with a breast pump alongside a couture ensemble: “I love this juxtaposition of beauty, glamour, fantasy and then truth,” she said.
“I’m wearing latex underwear on this shoot,” she said. “But I have had two children. This is my body and I think it’s important to reflect that in the world. It’s okay to look good and work at it and be healthy, but it’s different for everyone.”

As for the other coming-of-age story Rachel McAdams has been linked to about a girl trying to fit in, she probably won’t star in the musical adaptation of Mean Girls: ” I don’t see an option to change the original cast,” she revealed. But “if author Tina Fey comes up with something, I would definitely be there”.
