Rachel McAdams was surprised to hear rumors that Lindsay Lohan was intimidated by her when the two filmed "Mean Girls" more than 10 years ago.

"If anything, I was in awe of her talent," McAdams told Allure for its August cover. "I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.”

“Oh yeah, for sure. Absolutely," she said.

In theaters now, the actress is starring alongside the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in "A Most Wanted Man."

"I learned so much from him. He really takes you under—he really took me under his wing," she said. "You feel very taken care of, but at the same time there’s an element of danger: There’s a crackle in every scene. He makes sure the stakes are very high, and there’s a safety there, too."

She continued, "He had so much natural, raw talent, but he worked so hard, too. He really worked for it and didn’t let up. I’m sure that wasn’t easy.”

The August issue of Allure is on sale July 29.
