Jessica Biel has said that she would have loved to star in The Notebook.
The actress revealed that she auditioned several times to play The Notebook‘s lead character Allie Hamilton, a wealthy young woman who falls for a boy (Ryan Gosling) from the wrong side of the tracks.
Biel recalled that getting passed over by The Notebook by director Nick Cassavetes was especially tough because she truly loved the story of star-crossed lovers.
She told Elle: “The Notebook – that’s one that I wanted so badly. I was in the middle of shooting Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I auditioned with Ryan Gosling in my trailer – covered in blood. Nick Cassavetes put me through the wringer in an interesting, excitingly creative way. But there’s a million that get away.”
Rachel McAdams went on to land the starring role in The Notebook, earning critical acclaim and award nominations for her performance.
Biel also explained that she’s hoping to explore other interests besides acting as she gets older.
“I’d love to write. I wrote a lot of short stories and poetry when I was a kid,” the star said. “That was my creative outlet. I’ve written a short film, and I [still] write poetry.”
