Rachel McAdams, hands down, is one of our absolute super favourites.

Come on, apart from playing the briilaint Mean Girls super-bitch Regina George (amen) and nailing pretty much every other role she takes on, Canadian gal Rachel McAdams has time and time again proved herself to be one of the nicest girls working in Hollywood today. And well, you can’t help but like her.

Whether she’s smooching Ryan Gosling (we forgive you Rach’…almost), or rocking a knock-out red carpet look, you can’t argue that Ms McAdams is one of the most popular actresses out there. So to celebrate her 37th birthday today, here are the nine times Rachel McAdams has given us total life inspo…
