On the cover of my just arrived Marie Claire is Rachel McAdams and I could not be happier. She is one of the celebrities that, for me, feels like she could be my best friend (she'd obviously toss off her ex boyfriends to me). I enjoy her and really enjoy her movies. So, while I was doing my preliminary scan through the mag, I was surprised that they didn't go with the normal celeb interview routine. Instead, they had her choose a book for the monthly Marie Claire book club and used that as the article.
Genius! I wish they did that more often because seriously how many recycled questions can you ask these people? How was the breakup? What is your take on fashion? Body issues? Why are you so cool even though you're a totally normal person? I'm not sure if the book is any good (though my bestie would obviously have great taste in books) or if I'll even read it, but I applaud Marie Claire for trying something new. We can always use more celebrations of books in this country and Oprah can't do it by herself.
