The Notebook: Ryan Gosling And Rachel McAdams Literally Hated Each Other On Set
It’s a thin line between love and hate.
Probably every desperate romantic has seen The Notebook, based on the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks.
It's hard not to be touched by Allie and Noah’s true love – Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are very convincing.
But it turns out that while they were portraying lovers, in real life the actors could barely stand each other's company.
The director of the movie, Nick Cassavetes, recalled that Ryan and Rachel fought constantly, and Gosling even asked to remove McAdams from the project:
“They were really not getting along one day on set. [...] He’s [Ryan] doing a scene with Rachel, and he says, ‘Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off-camera with me?’ I said, ‘What?’ He says, ‘I can’t. I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this.’”
Fortunately, the director did not give in to the actor. Instead, he simply ignored Rachel and Ryan's frequent bickering and demanded only good acting from them.
Such revelations not only honor the acting talents of McAdams and Gosling, who left the audience in no doubt that there was chemistry between them, but also showed that love and hate are just one step apart.
After filming ended, Ryan and Rachel began dating. Their romance lasted three years, and Ryan has said in many interviews that he is very grateful for that meeting, calling it one of the best events in his life.
The Notebook became the debut of Nicholas Sparks. He told about the difficult relationship of the main characters, who carried their feelings for decades, grew old and died on the same day.
For thousands of people, it became an example of true love to be inspired by. But it was not until eight years later that the novel was adapted for the screen.
Today, it seems that it was the right decision not to rush – the long-awaited adaptation brought such success that no other work of Sparks has ever reached.
