Who is Rachel McAdams’ ex-boyfriend, actor Taylor Kitsch?

Taylor Kitsch was born under the zodiac sign of Aries on 8 April 1981, in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, and at 27 years of age, is best known for working on projects such as “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, “Battleship”, “Savages” and “John Carter”. In addition, Kitsch has worked on television as well, starring in the second season of “True Detective”.

Who Is He Dating Now? Wife, Relationships, Marriage and Baby

When it comes to Taylor’s relationship status, he doesn’t share that sort of information, and as a matter of fact, he is secretive about what’s going on behind closed doors. He was rumored to have been dating Jessica White, an American model, but if so they didn’t share any details with the media. Kitsch was also linked to fellow actress Rachel McAdams, as they starred in the same movie, but also never confirmed, however, he later dated Minka Kelly and Jennifer Welch. Many believe that the actor is actually gay, which seems unlikely. Taylor isn’t active on social media, which makes it even harder for his fans to look into his personal life.

Early Life and Background

Speaking about Taylor’s ethnicity, he is Caucasian and has dark hair and brown eyes. He is the son of Susan and Drew Kitsch; his mom worked for the BC Liquor Board and his father in construction, but they divorced when he was a child. He has two brothers, Brody and Daman and two maternal half-sisters. Taylor and his family lived in a mobile home park, where he began playing ice hockey at the age of three, continuing to work hard at the sport until he suffered a knee injury which ended thoughts of a career. Kitsch was subsequently a student of nutrition and economics at the University of Lethbridge. When it comes to his body measurements, he is 5ft 11ins (1.81m.) tall and weighs 179 lbs (81kgs) – he reportedly had to work out hard when he was filming “Battleship”.


Taylor moved to New York in 2002, after getting a chance to start his modeling career with IMG, and he eventually began studying acting as well. He was homeless for some time in New York, until in 2004 he relocated to Los Angeles, working for Diesel and Abercrombie & Fitch. He made his acting debut in 2006, landing the role of Colm in “Godiva’s”, and had several other projects in the same year, including “Friday Night Lights”, in which he played the role of Tim Riggins. The mentioned series follows the story of a high school football team located in Dillon, Texas, and received a generally positive response from audiences, allowing Kitsch to gain more attention. The series was ultimately rewarded with AFI TV Programs of the Year—Official Selection, in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and the Eddie Award for Edited One-Hour Series for Commercial Television among others, and was nominated for numerous other awards.

Latter Projects

In 2009, the actor joined the cast of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, working with actors such as Hugh Jackman, Troye Sivan, Liev Schreiber and Michael James Olsen. The movie grossed almost $400 million at the box office, but didn’t live up to the expectations of the critics, being described as “O.K., not great, Marvel movie that tells the early story of the prime X-Man, and attempts to make its climax in a perfect coupling with the start of the known trilogy”. As of 2012, Taylor played the main character in “John Carter”, a sci-fi movie which focuses on the story of the life and death of the title character, and took almost $300 million at the box office. In the same year, the actor starred in “Battleship”, opposite Alexander Skarsgård and Rihanna, and being exposed to media attention, gained more fame. In 2015 Taylor starred in “True Detective”, a worldwide-acclaimed TV series, and in the same year played one of the main characters of “American Assassin”, opposite Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton. As of the most recent past, Taylor starred in “Waco” as cult-leader David Koresh; clearly his career is still going along nicely.

1[on whether the disappointing box office for "John Carter" was one of the reasons he "moved toward indies"] - It's funny that people are saying this. You go back to "Friday Night Lights." Then I did "The Bang Bang Club," which is probably one of my proudest things I've been involved with, and then these opportunities came along. You don't say no to Oliver Stone (who directed him in "Savages"). [2014]
2[on if he wishes there would've been a sequel to "John Carter"] - I miss the family. I miss Andrew Stanton. I know the second script was fucking awesome. We had to plant a grounding, so we could really take off in the second one. The second one was even more emotionally taxing, which was awesome. [2014]
3[on if the "bad press" over "John Carter" was hard for him] - I mean, look man, it wasn't an uplifting experience. My biggest regret would have been if I didn't do enough personally. If I didn't give it everything I had. If I hadn't prepped enough. I don't have that regret, so that allows me to let go. I still talk to Lynn Collins almost daily. Those relationships that were born won't be broken by people we never met. [2014]
4If you told me ten years ago when I was homeless in New York City that my first two movies would make close to $600 million, I would have laughed at you. I passed out from exhaustion on 'Carter'. There's nothing more I could have given to that project.
5Living on the subway in New York City was by far the lowest point. That's where I slept for weeks. But that's a different low. Not 'I don't know if I'll ever make it as an actor'. It was pure survival.
6[on Savages (2012)] To be in this film was a dream. I've been in the acting game for probably eight years. It's not just about being on screen, but attaining things in your life that no one can take from you, and this is one of them.
7[on unexpectedly being cast in heroic roles] I didn't really follow action heroes. It was more of a Sean Penn and a Daniel Day-Lewis and a Philip Seymour Hoffman that I admired.
8[on filming John Carter (2012)] You can name any part on my body and at one point I'm sure it was swollen or hurt or pulled or yanked or something. You're just in insane shape that you gotta keep up. It's excessively tough, man.
9Actors become so fucking sensitive. I've worked with actors who are fucking lazy and expect shit to happen without putting in time. Look man, if you're not prepped and ready to go to work, don't sign up for an Oliver Stone film.
10[on The Bang Bang Club (2010)] I was scared s**tless to take this on. And that's when you know you're doing something right.
11I definitely have a pieces of me like Riggins - my father was never in my life. I've had curve balls thrown at me.
12I've always been intimidated by the technicalities of taking photos, especially with a film camera -- not just a point and shoot. But getting a role like this there's no better moment to take it in. I look at photography in a different light, now. - On playing Kevin Carter.
13These war photographers would break up in front of you telling their story. That raised your game, your focus and what you put into it. I think for me this is why I do it. It's why you put in the work. You're telling the story of someone who lived and you have to do it right. - On playing Kevin Carter.
14[on acting]: I got enveloped with it. I'm not sure if you can over-study, but my teacher kicked me out of class for a month. Everything happens, you have to believe, for a reason. I lucked out a few times and met a few people who believed in me, and I'm still riding this wave.
15On fame, wild nights out in Hollywood: There's no need to get involved in all that if you are in it for the right purpose.
16A lot of people are surprised to hear that an actor studied for two or three years. They take the craft for granted and wanna just wake up and be an actor. But paying your dues and all that puts so much into being a success. You have an understanding of what it's about, being on your own for three or four years and living day to day on $3, or living in an apartment with no electricity. I didn't want to just go back home and be like, "Yep, it didn't work out."
17There's that stigma about New Yorkers, how they're so mean, but in my experience it was quite the opposite. People were very genuine and very nice, even on the subway. I mean, I was sleeping on the subway, man, so it wasn't like I was doing very well when I was in New York. It's a really intense city, and it tests you. - On living in New York City.
18He [Berg] just gave me such an opportunity, especially when you look back and see - and especially with this big movie coming out. There are a lot of people who came in and out, but he's one of those people who really took a risk on me and saw the potential. I won't ever forget that. (On Peter Berg casting him as "Tim Riggins" on Friday Night Lights (2006)).
19Video games and computers have become babysitters for kids. Parents have to lead by example. I have two little sisters and I help my mom raise them. You just try to give them knowledge piece by piece and tell them, '[By eating well and being active,] you're going to feel a lot better about yourself, you're going to be able to do better at school, you're going to have more energy in sports.' I think it's about self-empowerment, as well - giving kids choices. It starts with coaches, teachers, and especially parents, by living healthy themselves.
20Yeah, I played it pretty darn hard seriously, as many Canadians do. I started playing when I was 3 or 4 years old, had the backyard pond and everything. So I was devastated. - On his hockey career ended by injury.
21I would murder to play Gambit again.
22[About playing "Gambit" in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)] The biggest thing for me is doing this justice. Being with Hugh and everything else, it's not called "Gambit: Origins". I want to come into "Wolverine" and contribute to Hugh Jackman's movie the best I can and I feel I've done everything I could possible to bring this guy to life.


1At the end of Battleship (2012), Taylor Kitsch's character is challenged by a Navy SEAL to come down to Coronado and enter training to become a SEAL himself. In 2013, Taylor Kitsch played Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy in Lone Survivor (2013).
2In 2014 Chase Crawford, who co-starred with him in The Covenant (2006), challenged Taylor to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Taylor accepted. In return, he challenged Connie Britton, who starred in the "Friday Night Lights" movie while he was in the TV-show version.
3On asked what was the most romantic thing he's done for someone, he went to Europe to surprise his girlfriend at the time.
