Who here is fast becoming a Fan of Rachel McAdams ?

Seen recently in Wedding Crashers and Red Eye

She's a classic beauty, doesn't have the in your face raw sexuality of a Jessica Alba but oozes class.

And she can act ! very well

I think she could be the new improved Julia Roberts

I'm not going to comment on her acting ability because I haven't seen her most recent films, but I don't find her to be particularly attractive.

You know how people say they dislike something based on principle and NOT on the person's "ability"?

Well, if the entertainment media keep hammerin' her down our throats that she's the NEXT BIG THING or AMERICA'S NEW SWEETHEART, then...not me.

I find her extremely classy-looking. I think she has this "Old Hollywood" beauty like Ingrid Bergman or Lana Turner.

While I liked her in Mean Girls and Wedding Crashers, her looks don't do a thing for me.

I know the Sports Guy would agree with you. From his column in July...

Rachel McAdams plays the daughter of Christopher Walken's powerful politician character (the one Wilson ends up falling for), which is spectacular because she's That Girl from "Mean Girls" and "The Notebook." Let's see ... she's funny as hell ... she's likable ... she's a good actress ... everyone I know loves her ... and yet she probably gets 1/100th of the attention of Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, the Hiltons and 65-pound Nicole Richie. You figure it out. Hopefully this will be her breakout movie -- she's been the Dwyane Wade of Hollywood for two years running.

I can't say I disagree

I dunno about pretty, but she's a wonderful actress. One of the better young ones around.

I hope the hype machine doesn't destroy her. I fear dating that oaf Ryan Gosling will.

She's definitely got this Jeri Ryan thing going that I find so incredibly hot.

I've only seen in her in Mean Girls(and a few minutes of The Notebook which I'd like to forget), but she never really caught my eye in that movie. Mostly cuz she was standing next to the smoking hot Lacey Chabert the entire time.

But then she turned up at a premiere or some awards show as a brunette and looked 1000 times cuter. She kinda reminds me of Emma Caulfield(Anya from Buffy). Especially with her ever-changing hair color.

She'll never be America's Sweetheart though, since she's Canadian. Seriously though, I hope she doesn't go the Julia Roberts or Reese Witherspoon route and make a crapload of chick flicks. I like how her last four films(all box office hits) have each been so different from one another.

Apparently there's a movie called My Name is Tanino that I should be seeing.

Stop the fuckin' planet, I wanna get off--are we actually ranking the horsefaced chick from LOST IN SPACE higher than Rachel?!?! Christ, I don't get this world sometimes...

I agree that Lacey Chabert was nothing to look at in Lost In Space or prior but she has grown into a strikingly beautiful woman. Rachel McAdams does not come close in my eyes. I'm not saying she's ugly but she does absolutely nothing for me.

As for her acting, I've only seen her in a few things so I feel I can't give an opinion regarding her acting... yet.

Hey don't get me wrong; I want to have a kind of sex that's never even been invented with Lindsay Lohan, but I'm so lost on the Lacey over Rachel thing...

I still think she has more of a Jeri Ryan thing than Parker Posey.
