Rachel McAdams Talks McDonald's, Dating Co-Stars

Rachel McAdams is one of Hollywood's hottest actresses, but before her acting career took off she was dealing with drama behind the counter of one the country's biggest fast food chains.  McAdams tells Glamour magazine, "I worked at McDonald's for a good three years."  The 33-year-old, who graces the February cover of Glamour, added, "My sister and brother worked there. My sister was my manager."

McAdams admits she wasn't winning any employee of the month awards. She explains, "I was not a great employee; I broke the orange juice machine one day."  She also spent a lot of time making sure her hands were clean.  She says, "I had a little bit of an OCD thing with hand washing and just didn't have time.  They were like, 'Hey, the drive-through's backing up. Stop washing your hands!'"

The actress also tells Glamour that she makes a point to never date her co-stars, at least until they've finished working together.  McAdams, is currently dating her former Midnight in Paris co-star Michael Sheen.  She says that it's too difficult to date someone you are working with.  According to McAdams, "A set may seem like a good place for romance, but I don't think it's very conducive; it's too distracting. Every relationship I've had with a co-worker has come after the fact, because you wind up actually spending a lot of time with those people promoting the movie."
