Rachel McAdams is getting heaps of praise for showing off her armpit hair in a recent photoshoot.
The Mean Girls star is about to make a major comeback with her new film adaption of the beloved book Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, where she'll play Margaret's mum Barbara Simon.
And, of course, with any major comeback, a glamorous magazine shoot is essential.
Rachel, 44, looked absolutely, jaw-droppingly gorgeous in her shoot for Bustle.
She posed in elegant bustiers, co-ords, and dresses, leaving her brunette waves to hang loose.
But, what fans noticed first and foremost was the fact that, in at least two of the shots, Rachel is showing off armpit hair.
In one snap, she offers a peak at her pits while wearing a white midi dress, tucking her left arm behind her back so you catch a glimpse of what's underneath.
In another, she makes it a lot more obvious, lying out on a red sofa with her head knocked back and her arms splayed out to either side, giving her pits way more camera time.
In her interview with the magazine, it's noted that Rachel specifically requested the photos taken for the shoot were edited as minimally as possible.
And people are obsessed.
Speaking about her own aesthetic vision for herself, she told the magazine: “I love that juxtaposition of beauty, glam, fantasy, and then truth."
Showing off her real body is super important to the The Notebook star, who made a point of noting that there's no such thing as perfection.
"With this shoot, I’m wearing latex underwear," she said.
"But I’ve had two children. This is my body, and I think that's so important to reflect back out to the world."
Elsewhere in the interview, she adds: "It’s OK to look your best and work at it and be healthy, but that’s different for everyone."
Rachel also did a video for Bustle, in which she gave her younger self some words of self-care wisdom.
When it came to shaving, Rachel said: "Well, I’m going to give you the advice my - your mother - gave me,” she begun.
“‘Once you start, you can never stop', and I remember rolling my eyes about that, and thinking, ‘Ugh, that’s not the fun answer,’ but it’s so true.
“Life is long once, shaving is intense, but if you’re gonna go ahead with it anyway, watch the ankle bones, the shins."
She continued: “You’re gonna go to Bible camp and think it’s okay to shave without shaving cream, and it’s gonna be terrible.
“Always have shaving cream, and then if you want to stop shaving again one day, that’s okay, too."
People are absolutely loving this look on Rachel, and have taken to social media to thank her for promoting realistic images of women's bodies.
"This is what I needed to see when I was growing up! Yes," commented one fan.
"NATURAL WOMAN," raved a second.
"Love her for embracing her natural beauty!!!," wrote a third.
