Rachel McAdams Likes to Date Flawed Men, Speaks on Michael Sheen

Rachel McAdams says she doesn’t like to be evenly matched with the man in her life because it means they both approach life in different ways which is much more interesting. She also likes the guys she dates to be flawed for the same reason – because it makes the relationship less dull and she reveals she isn’t interested in being with someone who is perfect for her:

‘I think flaws are good. I think people have the right flaws for you, otherwise it would be rather dull. Having a difference of opinion is good, coming at the world from a different place. I think we are thrown together to learn things from each other.”

Speaking on her relationship with ‘Midnight in Paris’ costar Michael Sheen, Rachel says that their romance blossomed after filming wrapped up, and the two firstly became close friends before taking it to the next level, which she believes is one of the best ways to start a new relationship on the right foot. She also comments on how magical the film was because of the enchanting Parisian setting:

”We didn’t get together while we were filming which I feel strongly about when I’m working. We became quite good friends, which I think is a great way to start. I will say that I feel very blessed to have made a Woody Allen film in Paris together. It was magical and it wasn’t one of those movies where the streets were closed. Traffic was going by and we were a part of French life but also we had access to Giverny [Monet’s Gardens] and the Rodin Gardens.”
