This year marks the 10th anniversaries of one of my favorite movies, The Notebook.

Video footage of Rachel McAdams' audition tape has surfaced and it is clear why director, Nick Cassavettes, chose her.

Cassavettes and Ryan Gosling searched high and low for the perfect co-star for Gosling and they were lucky enough to come across McAdams. Cassavettes said, "When Miss McAdams came in and read, it was apparent that she was 'the one'". There was instant chemistry between the two of them and they actually ended up dating off-screen.

McAdams said that the audition was a last minute decision and confessed to US Magazine, "I read the script the night before and bawled my eyes out. It was the best audition experience I've ever had."
