Rachel McAdams:Blonde vs. Brunette

Which one do you prefer? I typically like blondes, but for some reason she really strikes me as a gorgeous brunette. I guess it might have to do with the fact that the roles where she is a brunette she plays a good person and the blonde roles are typically that of a snobby girl. In short, as a brunette, she seems like the girl next door you might have a shot with as oppossed to the unapproachable girl she looks like as a blonde.

To guide you, here are some pics (I hope they load).







Now the blonde pics





Is she trying to do a Jessica Simpson impression or something? Looks like it.

You obviously haven't seen her in "The Family Stone". I think she looks the best as a brunette with glasses.

I saw Family Stone, and thought she was gorgeous in it. In fact, that's what prompted this poll. Sorry I didn't give that as an option, I just thought it fell in the brunette category. Any pics of her from that movie with the specs on is a very welcome addition!

Brunette or Redhead, she just looks like another average Hollywood actress with blonde hair.

Based on what I've seen of her, brunette. Based on the pictures in the original post, blonde. The brunette photos provided aren't really all that flattering. That is, in my opinion she looks best with a tan, a fuller face, and dark hair.

After seeing the thread in the adult forum I'm kinda turned off by her.

Never found her particularly attractive, but when I saw her on Conan with that blonde hair, all I could think was "DEE-AMM!! DAT GURL IZ HAWT!!"

I like her as brunette. When I think of her as blonde - I think of her in Mean Girls where she looked like she had the biggest head I had ever seen on a skinny body.

brunette or red... I hate hollywood blondes.. She looks like she's high in those screen shots. Maybe they inject heroin into the lip gloss of these up and coming ingenues.

In those pictures, she looks better as a brunette. But she would look good w/ black, blue, orange or green hair, imo. The woman is flat-out gorgeous.

I think she was a blonde in "The Notebook." Either that, or dirty blonde. I can't quite remember for sure, but that was when we first fell in love. So, I'll go with whatever color hair she had in that movie.

She's cute as a brunette, but she's freaking hot when blonde (and she was blonde before she went brunette)

Brunette. But I'd still take her as a blonde.

Brunettes ALWAYS beat blondes, if you're smart.
