Our Notebook dreams have been dashed for good, as the co-stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams have finally confirmed their breakup. It was obvious that the couple split several months ago when they went from being inseparable to completely falling off the radar, but nobody was talking.
Now, Ryan opens up in the new issue of GQ, explaining how the end of the relationship even devastated strangers. "Women are mad at me," Ryan tells the men's mag. "A girl came up to me on the street and she almost smacked me. Like, 'How could you? How could you let a girl like that go?' I feel like I want to give people hugs, they seem so sad. Rachel and I should be the ones getting hugs! Instead, we're consoling everybody else." Ry does admit, that like their alter egos in the movie, their affair was intense, but he rubs salts in our wounds by saying that their on-screen love didn't hold a candle to the real thing! "God bless The Notebook," he says. "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."
WHAT? More romantic? I can't stand it! I don't think I've stopped crying yet, from that movie, and I saw it five years ago. As for the breakup itself, Ryan says it wasn't pretty. "The only thing I remember is we both went down swingin' and we called it a draw." Great, now I'll just continue to cry over this for the next five years.
