Rachel McAdams Pics Cause Internet Uproar

Rachel McAdams, star of some of the best movies ever (Mean Girls, Wedding Crashers, Doctor Strange and…..oh yeah, THE NOTEBOOK) is trending today because of her armpits. Well…the hair that naturally grows there.

Rachel took time out from being a mom to her two 5-year-old little ones and her life partner Jamie Linden to work in an in-depth interview and photo shoot with Bustle magazine. The shoot…is dividing people, and it’s glorious.

Like other women before her, Rachel decided to let her armpit hair grow out and let the hair get some world-wide camera time. Apparently, that didn’t sit well with a lot of people, and that’s too bad!

What people may or may not know, is that this isn’t a new thing for women to do. There are pictures from Sophia Loren sporting the underarm bush back in 1955! 58 years ago!!!

Here are a few pics of Sophia going all black and squirrely. 🙂

And it doesn’t stop there. Grace Jones, Julia Roberts, Madonna, Lisa Bonet, Drew Barrymore….I can go on. Halsey.

The point I’ve purposely beaten into the ground is, this isn’t new, but it somehow becomes a big deal when a woman wants to take a break from shaving. Why?

Despite the obvious, people are still divided, and feel like publicly sharing that they’re not cool with a woman they don’t know, letting her hair grow the way it’s supposed to grow. Ha. Sounds silly when you read it back, doesn’t it?

Here’s just ONE of the many posts taking shots at Rachel.

BTW – no one is making mention of how it appears Rob (the one responsible for the above tweet) can’t lay off the Oreos. I wouldn’t want to hurt HIS feelings, or make him insecure and reach for more. (Sorry.)

Rachel’s not worried though – and she shouldn’t be. In a video Bustle posted to their site and available below, she said, “Well, I’m going to give you the advice my — your mother — gave me,” as she paused, “‘Once you start, you can never stop,’ and I remember rolling my eyes about that, and thinking, ‘Ugh, that’s not the fun answer,’ but it’s so true.”

“Life is long once, shaving is intense, but if you’re gonna go ahead with it anyway, watch the ankle bones, the shins,” Rachel continued.

“You’re gonna go to Bible camp and think it’s okay to shave without shaving cream, and it’s gonna be terrible,” yes…it will!

“Always have shaving cream, and then if you want to stop shaving again one day, that’s okay, too.”

Be you Rachel! and YOU that’s reading this!
