The Notebook Director Says Ryan Gosling Didn’t Get Along With Rachel McAdams
Former real-life movie couple Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams met on the set of their now-infamous movie The Notebook, but the films’ director recently revealed that the twosome were anything but friendly during filming.
The Notebook is one of the most beloved romantic films of all time and when it was released, stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were dating in real life.
The adored nature of the movie and the seeming perfection of Gosling and McAdams’ relationship makes the recent revelations made by The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes all the more explosive.
“Maybe I’m not supposed to tell this story but they were really not getting along on set,” said Cassavetes in a recent interview.
“Really not. Ryan came to me…and he says, ‘Would you take [McAdams] out of here and bring in another actress to read with me?”
Naturally, Cassavetes refused out of respect for McAdams. Still, things only got worse from there:
“I went into a room with a producer and they started screaming and yelling at each other. I walked out.”
“They had it out…I think Ryan respected her for standing up for her character. The rest of the film wasn’t smooth sailing, but it was smoother sailing.”
All that hollering and fighting on set must not have been too bad considering the fact that these two ended up dating for 5 years and even getting engaged before their break up.
