True Detective Season 2 star Rachel McAdams turns 37 this month. What, you thought she was younger? Playing a high school student in your mid-twenties (as McAdams did in 2004’s Mean Girls) will do that for you.
In the same year as Mean Girls, McAdams grew even more in popularity with her role in The Notebook, a romantic comedy that has remained a popular date night movie.
In this 2003 audition for The Notebook, McAdams displays the romantic intensity that won her the role. McAdams actually had only received the script a day in advance of the audition.
