Hot and sexy Rachel McAdams plays in the Sherlock Holmes.
Honestly, I had my own personal ‘Gone with the Wind’ situation,” McAdams says, laughing. “I had to wear real corsets, with my bones crushed and totally cinched in. The costumers would come to strap me into the corsets in the morning and I would try to push my belly out so I had a little bit more room.”
“I would be holding onto the trailer door and trying to eke out just a little bit of space so I could speak properly. Still, they managed to squeeze me in every day. They even tried to make me laugh, and on the laugh they’d yank tighter.”
It was still worth it to be the female lead in the bromance of the holiday season. In Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes,” McAdams plays Irene Adler, an American mystery woman who takes Sherlock on in ways he never expected.
