All great romances have to start somewhere, and this one between Allie Hamilton and Noah Calhoun started with an audition tape.

We are, of course, talking about the love story told in the ultimate tear-jerker movie, The Notebook, starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams.

It must be pretty tough acting alongside Hollywood sweetheart Ryan Gosling, particularly in the film that shot him to superstardom. Well, that’s the challenge Rachel McAdams was faced with, all those years ago (the film was actually released in 2004 – over a decade ago, guys!) when she played Gosling’s soul mate and one half of the most passionate movie couple ever.

But, credit to her, this lady can act and though the pair were praised for their on-screen chemistry, Rachel shone right through Noah’s big bushy beard. No surprise then that her three minute audition tape is as intense as the film itself. (Or perhaps it was just really easy to 'pretend' to be in love with Ryan Gosling. We're pretty sure we could've managed it.)

Watch Rachel transfrom into a human ball of emotion and bask in her glory. Bravo, Ms. McAdams!
