Rachel McAdams: Farrell's a sugar fiend

Rachel McAdams has gushed about how talented her True Detective co-stars are.

The American actress and handsome actor appear in the second series of the popular cop show, taking over from Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in season one.

Rachel enjoyed working with Colin and the duo bonded over their sweet tooth.

"Colin's just an absolute sweetheart, such a generous, chivalrous actor, so we spent a fair amount of time hanging out, bringing snacks to each other," she told Total Film. "He's a big snack guy; we were getting hopped up on sugar."

The sweet treats came in handy in other ways too; with so many dramatic themes running throughout the show, bonding proved a welcome break for the two stars.

Joining them are Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn and together the four of them tackled the storylines in an uplifting manner.

"The material's so dark it almost allowed the time when you weren't at work to be very light. So there was a levity around the work that allowed you to really focus when you needed to, but there wasn't this heaviness on set," Rachel explained. "Taylor has a really great, unexpected sense of humour that kind of catches you by surprise, Colin is Irish so... [laughs] you know, and Vince is just so smart - I was amazed at the ways in which Vince could make things funny with his material."

There have been rumours swirling around Rachel and Taylor's relationship status, with reports suggesting the pair are dating.

Before this her Southpaw co-star Jake Gyllenhaal was apparently the main man in her life, but Rachel is the first to deny it.

"No, no," she replied when asked if there was any truth behind the claims.
