Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
Characters: Noah and Allie
Movie: The Notebook (2004)
Another Nicholas Sparks hit. Another blow to masculinity. However, the set ofThe Notebook was also where Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams met. In the movie, the two play lovers who just keep missing each other. Their fictional romance became fantasy fodder for dreamy teenagers all over the world, which made it inevitable that their real-life relationship would be scrutinized and idealized. In the end, it lasted two years, then fizzled out. It appears that McAdams is a repeat offender when it comes to taking her work home; she's currently dating Michael Sheen, her co-star from Midnight in Paris.
