Rachel McAdams is originally born in Canada and still maintains residence there in Toronto, where she shares a home with her brother. While she has a green card with access to return to the U.S., she believes that because so many films are filmed outside of the Los Angeles area that she feels no need to live there. This has allowed her to stay above the Hollywood fray and out of the limelight to a certain extent.


McAdams has stated she is a fan of cooking and often does so due to her great love of food. She says she would open a restaurant if she were not an actor and may do so at some point in the future closer to retirement.
