Rachel McAdams' 'Notebook' Audition Video Is the Best Thing Unearthed by the Internet

See McAdams audition for her classic role in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation.

This week we learned that Matthew McConaughey's Dazed and Confused audition video is almost better than the movie, and definitely better than sex. But in a treasure trove of before-they-were-stars Internet finds, pre-fame Rachel McAdams reading what would become an iconic scene from The Notebook remains the most epic. Revisit the gut-wrenching scene between Allie (McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling, off-camera) and try not to tear up. (Even if you seen this before, it's worthy of repeat viewing.) And to think, the two beautiful leads couldn't stand each other!
