She may be a Hollywood star now, but Rachel McAdams still has a firm footing in her hometown of St. Thomas.

That’s exactly what McAdams and her family were doing Thursday afternoon, working alongside volunteers constructing footings and foundations for a Habitat for Humanity home on Westlake Dr. in St. Thomas.

McAdams also met with the Doucet family who will eventually move into the Habitat home.

Though McAdams shot to fame for playing a malevolent teen in Mean Girls, she has been a kind-hearted supporter of causes in her hometown.

“There’s something so profoundly beautiful about building a home from the ground up. It’s about more than doors and windows and paint. It’s about family, future, and building the foundation for lasting memories,” said McAdams in a statement released by Habitat.

Jeff Duncan, chief executive of Habitat for Humanity Oxford Middlesex Elgin, said McAdams’ visit gave the affordable housing program a strong boost.

“Raising awareness about the issue of affordable housing . . . and fundraising to construct the homes is always a challenge, so having Rachel’s support as we start our first project in St. Thomas means a great deal to us, the volunteers and our partner family.”

McAdams was born in London in 1978 and grew up in St. Thomas.

She trained with the Original Kids Theatre Company, before graduating from the theatre program at York University and going on to star in hit movies such as The Notebook, Wedding Crashers and Sherlock Homes.
