In my mind, there is a small roster of lady actors in Hollywood that I think I would be friends with, if our paths ever crossed. In no uncertain order they are: Anne Hathaway, Amber Ruffin, Amy Adams, Jennifer Aniston, Constance Wu, but most of all, Rachel McAdams. Rachel McAdams is my (fictional) celebrity best friend. I can’t tell you why, but she just seems like a cool chick who can joke around, give good advice, and most importantly, help you achieve the mythical status of all out of f*cks to give. Living life in that sublime state would make day to day activities so much easier.
To that point, check out Rachel from the photo shoot for Girls. Girls. Girls. magazine, where she’s pumping, in designer clothes, looking like a bad ass bitch.

@ClaireRothstein magazine founder here 👋🏼 just sharing this image from my account which I think encapsulates @girls.girls.girls.magazine and what we stand for…👠 “A million reasons why I wanted to post this picture. Obviously #rachelmcadams looks incredible and was quite literally the dream to work with but also this shoot was about 6 months post her giving birth to her son, so between shots she was expressing/pumping as still breastfeeding. We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about who’s idea it was to take this picture but I’m still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more. Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world, like breathing and I can’t for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of. I don’t even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person’s perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that’s great. Besides she’s wearing Versace and @bulgariofficial diamonds and is just fucking major. Big shout out to all the girls 💪🏽 #rachelmcadams for @girls.girls.girls.magazine cover shoot 📸 @clairerothstein #pleaseshare Side note: I did not look anywhere near as fabulous as this when feeding/pumping. And that’s ok too” Stylist: @alicialombardini 👠 . #girlsgirlsgirlsmag #girlsgirlsgirls #bringingbackthewoman #nogrungejustglamour #independentmagazine #printisnotdead #normalisebreastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeeding #life #women #versace #bulgari
I love this, because a certain type of person gets supremely upset over the site of a woman’s breasts being exposed, and they’re also the type of person to insist that women breastfeed in a darkened room, while an older woman (known colloquially as a crone, or a “Sarah Sanders” if you’re hip to the kid’s slang these days) chants “shame, shame, bear Eve’s sin and your burden in shame, shame!” over and over.
Rachel is not here for anyone’s weird hang ups on her body. Nor should she be.
Now, perhaps it is news to you that Rachel Adams hadababyitsaboy.
If that’s the case, you’re going to be upset to know that it wasn’t with Aaron Samuels, or Noah Calhoun, but both of those guys are fictional characters, so the chances of that happening were slim to none.
Nope she had a baby with his (the baby’s) father. Since she has never revealed his (the son’s) name, nor confirmed who the father is, and because she is my (fictional) celebrity best friend, we’re just going to leave it at that.
