Canadian actress Rachel McAdams was honored with a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame, alongside soon-to-be father Ryan Reynolds, Olympic medalist Hayley Wickenheiser and former Supreme Court justice Louise Arbour. The About Time actress told the Canadian Press that she was surprised by the news. “To be recognized by your own country like this and to be put on this illustrious list of people that have come before is, I mean, is sort of beyond words for me,” she said. Ryan Reynolds was just as thrilled to be part of the ceremony, saying it was “unreal” to share the stage with Louise Arbour, referencing her indictment of former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic over war crimes.
“If you could ask me when I was 16 years old that I’d be standing here doing this right now, I’d just be lucky and happy that I lived this long, let alone to have this honour, so I’m excited,” Ryan admitted. “I can’t wait to step all over me.” ~Kelly Townsend
