Despite a poor opening weekend, The Notebook (2004) which features Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, is the 15th highest-grossing romantic drama movie of all time.
This popular rom-com grossed more than $117 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo. It got so popular that The Notebook-inspired engagement photographs became a common phenomenon during the 2000s.
It’s not hidden that Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling hated each while shooting this movie. Gosling even went so far as to request that the director of The Notebook replace Rachel McAdams with another actress mid-scene!
However, soon after shooting for this film ended, both stars fixed their differences and even dated for two years.
Since “The Notebook” debuted over 20 years ago, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams have each gone on to have incredibly successful careers. Ryan most recently played Ken in Barbie 2023. Meanwhile, Rachel has agreed to work on her first Broadway project. What are the chances that we will see them teaming together again? Here’s everything you need to know.
Rachel McAdams said she would like to work with Ryan Gosling again
Despite their unexpected breakup, it appears that Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling stayed friendly. Indeed, Gosling has stated that he is grateful for The Notebook since it introduced him to McAdams, whom he describes as one of his greatest loves.
In a 2016 interview with Yahoo! Movies, Rachel admitted that she had no idea her ex-boyfriend had been considered for the title role in Doctor Strange, the movie she was promoting at the time. But this was not due to the two not wishing to work together again. “Benedict was signed on when it came across my plate so he’s the only ever Doctor Strange I’ve known of,” she explained.
She also said, “I’d love to work with [Ryan] again.”
