Rachel McAdams has wowed audience with her multi-layered performances ever since she rose to fame with her role as Regina George in the cult classic high school comedy Mean Girls. A regular in the rom-com space, the actor has branched out into other genres as well. Today, she marks her 43rd birthday, and we at OTTPlay are listing down some of her best films that you can stream online.

Mean Girls
7.3OTTplay Rating
McAdams, though initially offered the role of Cadie Heron, eventually played the teenaged villain Regina George in this film that satirises high school dynamics. Regina is the Queen Bee, the head of her little clique that dictates the status of every student in the school. Her best dialogue here probably is, “Is butter a carb?”
The Notebook
8.1OTTplay Rating
We all swooned when we watched Ryan Gosling and McAdams romance and pine for each other on screen in this film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ romance novel.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows
7.3OTTplay Rating
Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law return as the sleuthing duo in this sequel but, much to our disappointment, McAdams only has a brief cameo as Irene Adler. Even then, the actor manages to capture attention and leave a lasting impression.
8.4OTTplay Rating
McAdams plays reporter Sasha Pfieffer, one of the many journalists from Boston Globe who investigate decades of sexual abuse of children at the hands of Roman Catholic priests in Boston. For her performance, McAdam earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nom.
Midnight in Paris
8OTTplay Rating
After being the romantic pairing to Owen Wilson in Wedding Crashers, McAdam reunited with him in this Woody Allen directorial. She plays Inez to Wilson’s Gil.
Doctor Strange
7.7OTTplay Rating
Like many A-listers, McAdams also stepped into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a role in Doctor Strange, led by Benedict Cumberbatch. McAdams plays Christine Palmer, Strange's ex-girlfriend who is also a doctor.
