RACHEL McADAMS WORKED AT McDONAL’S BEFORE REACHING FAME

For a start, Rachel McAdams’ road to success was far from easy, because at first she never imagined being an actress, but was focused on becoming the best in figure skating for which she was constantly training since she was four years old. However, when she was 7 years old, she one day saw a group of children putting on a play at school, something that quickly caught her attention.

After telling her parents, they signed her up for Disney and Shakespeare summer camps, and from the age of 12 he participated in the productions of the Original Kids Theater Company, London. As a teenager, she directed children’s theater productions. She at the same time continued to participate in figure skating until she was 18 years old, winning regional awards. But because the money did not reach him, at the age of 16 he worked at a McDonald’s.

What was Rachel McAdams’ job at McDonald’s like?

During an interview with GlamorRachel McAdams said that she worked at McDonald’s in Canada before becoming a Hollywood star. “Yes [trabajé en la franquicia de restaurantes de comida rápida]for a good three years. My sister and brother worked there. My sister was my manager!”he stated.

He said that he was encouraged to work in that place because at that time, when he was 16 years old, he was directing a children’s theater and the money was not enough to pay all his bills.

He also told how it was to belong to said franchise. “It was a great place to work, but I had a bit of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) with hand washing and just didn’t have the time. They said, ‘Hey, drive-thru is going backwards. Stop washing your hands!’ I wasn’t a great employee.”he pointed.

But that was not his only drawback; since, on one occasion, Rachel McAdams broke the orange juice machine. This is how the actress, before becoming famous, did a job like any other person.
