Rachel McAdams shadowed police for her role in True Detective.
The 36-year-old actress took part in a ”ride-along” as research for her role of Ani in the TV series, and has revealed she learned that ”everybody is lying.”
Rachel said: ”I did a ride-along with police and I learned that everybody is lying to everybody else. I get it now when police officers are cynical, because criminals are always trying to pull one over on them.”
Speaking to Stylist magazine, she said: ”I felt connected to Ani on a gut level. I understood her as soon as I read her. Working with Colin was a delight. He would come to my trailer for a chat and a cup of tea every day. We got really into chocolate coconut chips.”
Another famous actor who Rachel is excited about working with is 34-year-old Jake Gyllenhaal, in her upcoming film Southpaw, in which she stars as Maureen, the wife of a boxer who’s rebuilding his life.
She said: ”Jake and I have been trying to work together for years and this came up and he was so passionate about it and Maureen is a totally different character to anything I’ve done before. I’m actually a bit older than Jake. It still happens a lot. I think it’s fulfilling some sort of male fantasy, but we’re slowly getting past that.”
