The Notebook

Already had your fill of “The Notebook at 10″ stories?

Clear some room, because Notebook director Nick Cassavetes has got one heck of a tale from his time on set.

Take it away, Cassavetes (via an interview with Vh1):

Twist! This story is a bit of a bombshell, because the party line up until this point has been how quickly Gosling and McAdams clicked on set. (Evidence: This behind-the-scenes featurette where they tell viewers how intense the chemistry was when they first met.)

Gosling and McAdams aren’t their characters, of course (and have spent the past 10 years trying to convince audiences of that), but I’m just saying this sounds an awful lot like when Noah said to Allie: “Well that’s what we do, we fight … You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass.”

Too bad those two were never able to channel that passion.
