Rachel McAdams started dating her "Notebook" co-star Ryan McAdams in 2004, but the couple split three years later. He was in a relationship with Rachel McAdams, his co-star in The Notebook, from 2004 to 2007. They also reconciled for a number of months in 2008. Following their split, Gosling said: "God bless The Notebook... It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that." "The only thing I remember is we both went down swingin` and we called it a draw."
