Rachel McAdams reflects on bringing her nearly two-year-old son to Iceland for upcoming film with Will Ferrell

Rachel McAdams gushed about bringing her nearly two-year-old son to her first film, since becoming a mom in 2018. 

The 41-year-old Mean Girls star recently opened up about brining her youngster to Iceland and Scotland during the filming of her upcoming movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. 

‘I mean, being able to take him to Iceland, he’ll never remember any of it, but I feel like somehow that might stick to his soul and his personality a little bit, so it was great to get to travel,’ she told ET.

On being a working mom, she added: ‘It was wonderful to go out into the world and get to work at the same time. I felt really lucky to be able to do that.’ 

As she and her boyfriend Jamie Linden remain under isolation together with their little one, McAdams is enjoying her family’s ‘quality time’ together. 

‘It’s such extraordinary circumstances,’ she reflected of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, while noting she initially worried about the developmental impact social distancing would have on her child.

While she rarely discusses her tot to the public, the Academy Award nominee recently called him a ‘very welcome distraction’ under lockdown. 

‘I have a very welcome distraction in my son, who is two. So, that’s pretty much what I do… all the time,’ she told the LHSF Canada Steam-a-thon, while raising money for the COVID-19 Response Fund. 

McAdams added: ‘It’s true, he’s so entertaining! I thought about that, ‘Would I rather be alone in quarantine? Or with my family?’

In her same ET interview, the Game Night star also dished on working with Will Ferrell in their Netflix comedy, which will be released on June 26. 

‘He’s the loveliest mad man ever,’ she gushed, before also calling him the ‘funniest man on the planet.’

The Notebook actress continued: ‘He’s so warm and lovely as well. We just really had a great time. Sometimes movies that look fun aren’t actually fun, behind-the-scenes.’
