One reason "The Notebook" was so successful was because of the chemistry between Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling -- but it apparently wasn't so easy at first.
"Maybe I’m not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not. And Ryan came to me, and there’s 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, 'Nick, come here,'" director Nick Cassavetes told VH1. "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 do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this.'"
The onscreen coupling ended up being so believable that it has endured even 10 years later.
