Hollywood’s girl next door, Rachel McAdams, will star in Woody Allen’s highly-anticipated film, “Midnight in Paris,” due out this May. The all-star cast is already generating Oscar buzz, and the movie was chosen as the opening flick for this year’s Cannes Film Festival. After “Midnight in Paris,” McAdams is set to reprise her role in the sequel to the 2009 box office hit, “Sherlock Holmes.”

The 32-year-old Canadian actress has managed to escape the fate of many young Hollywood stars, like that of her “Mean Girls” co-star, Lindsay Lohan. She has turned down roles that she deemed too sexy or provocative, and even refused to participate in a Vanity Fair cover shoot with fellow A-listers, Scarlett Johansson and Kiera Knightley upon finding out she had to pose nude. The environmentally-friendly actress focuses on advocating instead of partying. The Hollywood beauty is a breath of fresh air among the overexposed, over-sexualized celebrities of today. Take a look back at the crystal-clean Hollywood journey of this A-list megastar.
