New Delhi : A bizarre photoshoot of actor Rachel McAdams' is sparking a debate on normalising working women using breast pumps. In the photoshoot for a magazine, Hollywood actor Rachel McAdams posed with breast pumps attached to each breast. The actor, who starred in multiple hits including Oscar-winning Spotlight is trending online and many across the world have lauded the actor for her attempt to normalise breastfeeding and the use of breast pumps.

The photoshoot has been done for the Girls. Girls. Girls. magazine in which McAdams is wearing a Versace coat and glamorous Bulgari diamond necklace as she poses. The coat is open revealing two breast pumps. Sharing the photo on Instagram, the magazine’s editor and photographer Claire Rothstein explained how they came up with the idea and why she decided to post it.

“Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world, like breathing and I can’t for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of. I don’t even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person’s perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that’s great,” Rothstein wrote. She also said the actor was pumping in between shots, as she is still breastfeeding her child who was born in April.

As the photos of the Doctor Strange star celebrate her talent, fashion statements and motherhood, Rothstein gave a shout out to other mothers and wrote, “Side note: I did not look anywhere near as fabulous as this when feeding/pumping. And that’s ok too.”
