Rachel McAdams ” slept with a Swiss army knife ” in Costa Rica.
The 38-year-old actress has confessed that she was “terrified and lonely” when men knocked on her door all night while traveling alone in Costa Rica, after she finished filming ‘Mean Girls’ in 2004.
Rachel said: “I was a bit stupid.” I got off the flight to Costa Rica and got on a small four-seater Cessna plane and they dropped me in the middle of the jungle while the rain was falling in. I got into a cab without doors and asked the driver to take me to this hotel, and he told me that English did not work and it had caught fire, so I ended up in a place that cost five dollars a night.
“There was a cold shower and boys knocking on my door all night.” I lay down with my Swiss Army knife in my hand, thinking, “I’m going home tomorrow!” … I was terrified and alone. ”
Despite having a horrible experience, the ‘Southpaw’ star insisted that she would travel alone ” again ”, and she would do it in exactly the same way, as she believes she gave her life experience and survival skills.
She told Stylist magazine: “I think it gave me a bit of cheek and ended up being one of the best things I’ve done. He taught me that I could also survive with very little.
“I would do it that way once again, it was a change of life, you have to prove to yourself what you’re made of.”
