Love was definitely not in the air for Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams on the set of “The Notebook”, according to the director Nick Cassavetes.

Both stars became household names after their 2004 movie, “The Notebook”, captured the hearts of many for its romantic story of love, loss, and reconciliation.

Based on director Nick Cassavetes interview with VH1, the set was far from romantic.  Cassavetes admitted in the interview that Gosling and McAdams fought excessively during filming, to the point that Gosling wanted McAdams off the project.

Cassevetes reminisced on a particular day in which one of these disputes occurred.

“Ryan came to me, and there’s 150 people standing in this big scene, 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 said, ‘What?’ He says, ‘I can’t. I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this.’

He continued: “We went into a room with a producer; they started screaming and yelling at each other. I walked out. At that point I was smoking cigarettes. I smoked a cigarette and everybody came out like, ‘All right let’s do this.’ And it got better after that, you know? They had it out…”

“I think Ryan respected her for standing up for her character and Rachel was happy to get that out in the open. The rest of the film wasn’t smooth sailing, but it was smoother sailing.”

While both stars did find love with one another in 2004, they unfortunately broke up in 2007, breaking the hearts of many romantics.

It sadly seems that the strife witnessed on the set of “The Notebook” eventually followed the iconic couple home.
