The 36-year-old actress – who shot to fame after playing Regina George in the teen comedy in 2004 – has revealed she was forced to rethink what it meant to her to be successful after being propelled into the limelight with the role.
She said: “I had to kind of reassess and go, ‘What did I want this [success] to be, and how did I expect it to look?'”
The pretty star – who also appeared in the ‘The Notebook’ opposite Ryan Gosling and ‘Wedding Crashers’ shortly afterwards – decided to take a two year break from acting after starring in ‘The Family Stone’ in 2005.
Her latest role will see her play detective Ani Bezzerides in the Us series ‘True Detective’ and Rachel – who prefers to take on “villainous” characters – was thrilled to have been cast in a strong female part.

Thanks to the news of Trevor Noah taking over Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" desk, we remembered something: Wow, "Daily Show" alums have basically taken over the world. If they're not landing primetime sitcom gigs, they're scoring Oscar nominations and populating romcoms. To celebrate Noah's new post, let's take a look at five Netflix picks starring the friends, colleagues, and cronies of Jon Stewart. Watch 'em now. "Trevor Noah: African American" If you haven't been introduced to your new "Daily Show" host's brand of observational humor yet, check out his comedy special where he discusses his home country of South Africa and why racial relations there, even during the age of apartheid, are/were less complicated than in the U.S. His bit about Oprah Winfrey's leadership academy is particularly inspired. And a little unsettling! "Bruce Almighty" Oscar nominee Steve Carell wasn't always scarring you with his fake "Foxcatcher" nose and deathly "Foxcatcher" stare. »

Get that letterman jacket out of storage and get ready for more old white people on TV. Following this week’s announcement that Fox will be backing a six-episode return of Chris Carter’s The X-Files, NBC has now announced that they have ordered a 13-episode renewal of Coach, the inexplicably long-running sitcom that made a star out of Craig T. Nelson. The basic plot find’s Nelson’s Hayden Fox playing second-fiddle to his son, the head coach of an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that has never had a football team before. Barry Kemp, the creator-producer-writer of the original series, which went off the air in 1997, will return to write the new series, while also executive producing the show with Nelson.

While Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon -- an idea that came from the actor himself when, in 1994, he told Premiere magazine that he’s worked with everybody -- has become the ultimate trivia game, it may be time to re-think who’s actually at the nexus.
Thanks in large part to Friends -- the former NBC sitcom now streaming on Netflix -- Aniston worked with a number of stars well before they were famous. And in the years since the series ended, Aniston has shared the screen with a few but key number of A-listers. But it wasn’t until she earned a 2015 Golden Globe nomination for her role in Cake that we realized she’s practically worked with everyone in Hollywood.
