Rachel McAdams Hints at the Possibility of Appearing in Mean Girls the Musical

McAdams hints at the possibility of appearing in the movie adaptation of Mean Girls the Musical. Though she has no idea how that can happen, if the writer Tina Fey is up for it, she will gladly do so.

"I don't see a way to shoehorn us in," she told Bustle. "If Tina can figure it out, I'm there, for sure."

The 2004 classic film helped McAdams shoot to fame, along with her string of hit movies. However, when she took an acting break, she admitted she "felt guilty" for rejecting roles offered to her.

"I felt guilty for not capitalizing on the opportunity that I was being given because I knew I was in such a lucky spot," she said. "But I also knew it wasn't quite jiving with my personality and what I needed to stay sane."

She rejected The Devil Wears Prada, Casino Royale, Mission Impossible III, and Iron Man, per Deadline.

"There were definitely some anxious moments of wondering if I was just throwing it all away, and why was I doing that? It's taken years to understand what I intuitively was doing," she added.

Knowing the films she rejected were successful, she ended up wishing she had done that.

"I step back and go, 'That was the right person for that,'" she stated.
