is also looking forward to seeing how Sherlock Holmes
turns out. "I mean it’s pretty big. I didn’t realize how big it really was until I stepped on the sets and they were just massive. And it’s in true Guy Ritchie fashion too - it’s lots of fighting and explosions. From what I’ve seen, obviously Robert Downey Jr.
is an amazing actor and so is Jude Law
, and they make a wonderful duo. You know I think some people are probably skeptical about, everybody has their preconceived notions about Watson in particular. Everyone’s very much like, 'Watson’s supposed to be like this...' And anyway I just think Jude is a perfect Watson, oddly enough. They’re really perfect together. That’s kind of the love story, actually. I play, supposedly, Sherlock’s love interest, but it’s really Watson," joked McAdams.
McAdams had no idea what to expect and Sherlock Holmes took her by surprise. "Well, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know if it would be kind of a satire of Sherlock Holmes in some ways, or if they really would want to boost up the comedy. It’s a really nice balance of the two. It’s quite serious and quite heart pumping, and at the same time there’s humor and these light moments too. I’ve seen just a little sizzle reel of it and it looks beautiful."
And McAdams revealed she gets to wear some pretty cool costumes. "Yeah, I did. I get the best of both worlds because Irene goes undercover and she wears men’s clothes, but she also wears these beautiful, really outlandish bustles and she wears hot pink all the time. She’s not afraid to stand out in a crowd."
