Contrary to their passionate onscreen romance or their eventual real-life romance, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams did not get along on the set of The Notebook. Director Nick Cassavetes even revealed that at one point the off-screen drama almost ended filming. He recounted a story from the set.

“Ryan came to me … and he says, ‘Nick, come here.’ And he’s 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 can’t. I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this.’” Instead Cassavetes decided to stick the co-stars in a room together and let them have it out. The show went on, though it wasn’t smooth sailing.
