    If Rachel McAdams showed up at our door at 2 in the morning, with a harried expression on her face, and told us that we had to blindly come with her if we wanted to, say, save the planet, we would go without even heading upstairs to change out of our slippers. That's how much we implicitly trust the actress, without even knowing her. This is, after all, the lady who had us secretly rooting for the Mean Girl and crying buckets during The Notebook. McAdams is like our northern-neighbor version of Sandra Bullock — goofy, approachable, gorgeous, and truly Canada's sweetheart.

    In her latest movie, About Time, McAdams finds herself once again dealing with a time-traveling romance, something she's no stranger to. "I'm starting to be mad that I've never actually gotten to time travel. I’m starting to notice a trend where I have to stay home and I don’t get to do the fun time-traveling part. I’m going to make sure I’m an actual time traveler myself the next time I do a time-traveling movie," she says. However, time travel, much like being granted wishes or seeing the future, is an impossible (albeit appealing) concept."The lesson in About Time is that maybe you don’t have to change anything to make the most of the limited time you do have.”

    With so much reflection around mistakes, second chances, and lessons learned, it only felt fitting that we get Rachel to give us her very own guide to life — including her one life even she'd go back in time to change. And really, who couldn't benefit from a little insider intel on how to be, well, more like Rachel McAdams.

    About Time is out nationwide on November 8.

The Most Flattering Swimsuit For YOU

Lately, it's taken nearly all our willpower not to think about sun rays, long weekends, and beach hair — from the actual beach and not a bottle. But, there's really no bigger buzzkill than hours of trying on bathing suits that epically fail to do your body justice. And, the fact is, your swimwear is probably the read
