We still can't believe it's been over 10 years since Mean Girls!
Rachel McAdams has kept a low-profile during most of the past decade, but she doesn't appear to have aged much at all!

And anyway, she was 26 when she played the 16-year-old Regina George!
In the new issue of Marie Claire, the actress admits that she wanted to take some time away from stardom after the success of the teen film, as well as The Notebook and Wedding Crashers, saying:
"I had to kind of reassess and go, What did I want this [success] to be, and how did I expect it to look?"
Also, it shouldn't come as a surprise that she loves playing villains and not-so-nice girls, considering how well she took on the role of Regina:
"I prefer to be a villainess. There's something a bit more delicious about their wickedness."
The 36-year-old will once again explore her dark side as a rough-around-the-edges policewoman in HBO's second season of True Detective.
But until then she returns to her romantic comedy best in Cameron Crowe's Aloha, out at the end of May!
It's good to have you back, Rach!

"Let's begin with the stats and fill in the empty blanks in the photo above.
On Saturday, May 9th, 2015 at 1:47 PM, I was blessed with the birth of my daughter - Mia Alma. She weighed in at 6 lbs 9 oz and measured 19 inches.
She looks just like her brother and, thus far, is doing everything a newborn should: eating, sleeping and pooping aplenty and with ease.
This journey, however, was not so easy.
I have been trying to get pregnant again for over a year. With my son, the miracle of life happened after the very first try.
With Mia, unfortunately, there was a lot of heartache along the way.
I naively expected things to be just as easy the second time around. I was painfully wrong!
After three failed pregnancy attempts and a lot of sadness, I was beginning to lose hope. Then, after a fourth try, the positive pregnancy result!
This is what I've dreamed of my whole life.
This dream of being a parent is something that many Americans share. Gay AND straight Americans both use surrogacy to start or add to their families. Yet, in many states, surrogacy is illegal.
As the Supreme Court is ready to make their landmark decision on same-sex marriage, I feel the need to get political and urge all politicians to please make surrogacy legal nationwide.
The dream I'm living is one that everyone should be able to live!
Having said that, my brain is mush right now. I am blissfully afflicted with baby brain and so relieved that my soul, Mia Alma, is here.
My son was born 4 weeks prematurely in 2013. So for the last month I've been living on edge and filled with a lot of anxiety.
That anxiety has not completely gone away, but my heart has been filled with so much more love!
Love is what matters most!
Love is what I wish for you all!
THANK YOU for joining me, through the ups and the downs, on my journey these past 11 years.
The future is bright and I am so happy I get to share it with you and two beautiful children!
Very truly yours,
