McAdams Backed Out of Naked Vanity Fair Shoot

Another reason I despise Hollywood. Adorable actress Rachael McAdams (The Notebook, Wedding Crashers, Red Eye) backed out of a naked photo-shoot for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine’s annual Hollywood issue and now they are giving her a bit of a hard time about it.

Actress Rachel McAdams lost her nerve when she turned up to pose naked for a new Vanity Fair photo spread - and it cost her a spot on the cover of the provocative new Hollywood issue. The Notebook star was invited to pose with British beauty Keira Knightley and Scarlett Johansson by the issue's artistic director, designer Tom Ford, but pulled out at the last minute. Ford explains, "She felt that she'd be fine with it and then she got there and she realized that she really wasn't, and that was fine... She just asked if she could be excluded from the cover." Ford himself replaced McAdams for the Annie Leibovitz cover shoot - and posed with naked Knightley and Johansson, who were also nervous about baring all to the world. He adds, "I said to them, 'When you're 70 you're gonna look back and say, 'Thank God for this picture - look how amazing I was.'"
Lost her nerve? I’d say it was classy what she did. Keira Knightly is fine, but quite honestly Scarlett Johansson is a slut from what I’ve heard. It’s not a surprise she jumped at the chance to pose nude for a magazine.
