We don’t need an anniversary to remind us of why we love The Notebook. Ten years later it remains one of the most iconic love stories of the 21st century, cherished by pre-teen girls and celebrities alike. In honor of the 10th anniversary of The Notebook, read on for things you may be shocked to learn about the now-classic film, straight from the director himself. Maybe I’m not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me? I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this. At that point I was smoking cigarettes. And it got better after that, you know? I think Ryan respected her for standing up for her character and Rachel was happy to get that out in the open. The rest of the film wasn’t smooth sailing, but it was smoother sailing. The famous bird scene almost didn’t happen.
When Allie spends the afternoon at the Windsor Plantation with Noah, they go for a boat ride — which is really just long, gorgeous foreplay before they spend the night together. Soon enough there’s rain, there’s a kiss and there’s a giant flock of birds swarming out of the sky. If you’re a bird, I’m a bird, but was corraling a flock of birds in a way that represents life-changing romance as easy as it looks? There’s just too much — you’ve got to take the birds out. We talked to every animal wrangler — you can’t do it. You’ve got to take it out. Well, the producer and I didn’t listen very much. Ryan Gosling improvised one of your favorite lines. Maybe Baby Goose is closer to his onscreen counterpart than you thought. There was a scene at the end where Ryan improvised, ’What do you want?
And it became one of the most iconic things from the film wasn’t in the script. The Notebook owes much of its success to Facebook. 11 and subpar reviews caused the The Notebook to struggle at the box office initially. And there was this little thing I’ll always remember: I was sitting at home and somebody said, ’Do you know that your movie is No. Ryan Gosling wanted to burn the house down. In the film’s second chapter, Gosling’s character spends years rebuilding the Windsor Plantation, and it’s the press coverage he receives that help bring Allie to him once again. Not one to shy away from sharing his ideas, Gosling thought it would be appropriate for Noah to burn down what had become his character’s life’s work. James Garner was not that interested in talking shop with his costars. Working with legendary actors like James Garner and Gena Rowlands seems like any up-and-coming performer’s dream.
Because they were playing two different versions of the same character, Gosling was eager to discuss choices and character traits with his esteemed costar. But Ryan finds significance in talking about hairstyles and everything. Everyone knows Jim Garner’s got brown eyes. Okay, I guess I’ll wear contacts.
