Maybe the next Reese Witherspoon?

All we can say about Rachel McAdams - so often compared to other supposed American sweethearts - is that she's on the cover of Elle magazine. Here are excerpts from her interview in it:

On her film choices:
"I'm not going to make movies just to make movies. I have to be passionate about it."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Reportedly, McAdams turned down a part in Casino Royale, as well as the role that went to Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada.

On why she quit being a vegetarian:
"I stopped eating meat for a few years and got so tired I feel asleep during a Chris Rock show - live, front row. And I was like, 'I'm picking up some bacon tomorrow!'"

On boyfriend Ryan Gosling:
"He's very brave. I don't think he sees the point [in taking a role] unless he can find out what he's made of every time. He just doesn't back off. He goes into everything from that place."

On her idiosyncrasies:
"I have major anxiety about crooked pictures. They just make me mental. I'm spatially sensitive. In the shower, I have to have the shampoo bottles setup right. I don't want the writing facing. I want the label facing out. I'm learning to relax about bookshelves. I think the books look nicer if the heights are mixed up."

On dying:
"I don't want to have a tombstone. You can now be made into a reef! I was reading that they can make your remains into a reef and put you in the ocean, and the fish can feed off you! I just want to go back into the earth the same way I came."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Somewhere above us, Anna Nicole Smith is shaking her heard at this notion.
