Why Britney Spears doesn’t regret passing up the starring role in The Notebook is explained by the pop star. The Notebook, a 2004 movie that has received a lot of praise as one of the most cherished romantic comedies of the twenty-first century, is based on the same-named 1996 Nicholas Sparks book. The central relationship in Nick Cassavetes’ film The Notebook was Allie, played by Rachel McAdams, and Noah, played by Ryan Gosling.
Looking back at her nearly being cast in the historical drama The Notebook. In an interview with People, Spears said that Rachel McAdams finally won the job over her because “The Notebook casting came down to [her] and [her].” Spears said she is “glad [she] didn’t do it” after passing on the role because otherwise, she would have “been acting like a 1940s heiress day and night” instead of working on her music career. See Spears’ complete statement below:
- The Notebook casting came down to me and Rachel McAdams, and even though it would have been fun to reconnect with Ryan Gosling after our time on the Mickey Mouse Club, I’m glad I didn’t do it. If I had, instead of working on my album In the Zone I’d have been acting like a 1940s heiress day and night.
Spears describes how she continued to work on her fourth studio album, In the Zone, after being turned down from The Notebook. As a result, Spears’ career flourished, and In the Zone reached its highest point as no.1 on the American charts. Despite not having the same global appeal as her debut album, the record nonetheless…The popular song “Toxic,” from in the Zone, is still played on the radio.
Gosling and Spears met while working on The Mickey Mouse Club, and while their careers started off in somewhat similar ways, they ultimately took very distinct paths. Since then, Gosling’s career has been filled with darker films like Drive, Blue Valentine, and The Place Beyond the Pines, making The Notebook an uncommon inclusion in his body of work today. Gosling has established himself as an A-list actor since The Notebook and has received two Oscar nominations for Best Actor for the films Half Nelson and La La Land.
The release of The Notebook and Mean Girls, two films that were undoubtedly career-launching for McAdams, made 2004 a significant year for her. Since then, McAdams’ career has featured a lot of romance films. Whether they were cast in The Notebook or not, Gosling, McAdams, and potential The Notebook star Spears all took radically different paths, but their careers took off as a result.
Ryan Gosling And Eva Mendes Won’t Raise Their Kids In Gender-Specific Roles
The children of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes won’t be brought up in gender-specific roles.
The 42-year-old Gosling has starred in a number of blockbuster successes, such as The Notebook, La La Land, and Blade Runner 2049.
Mendes, 48, has acted in films like 2 Fast 2 Furious, Hitch, and Ghost Rider.
The couple, who started dating in 2011, is one of Hollywood’s most secretive couples and doesn’t frequently discuss their relationship.
They have, however, spoken candidly about raising their two kids, Esmeralda, 8, and Amada, 6.
Mendes says she and her boyfriend want their kids to understand that “they are all partners and that no one should expect anything from a person because of their gender” in an interview with Forbes.
she explains: “I’m not an amazing cook – I leave that to Ryan.
“Hopefully it’s showing my girls that there are no gender-specific roles that one must take on and that we are partners in this and that we’re all partners in this, not just Ryan and I, but our children as well.
“It’s a team effort every day, so if they see him and I switching off doing certain things that again aren’t specific to stereotypical gender things, I think that just creates balance and harmony.”
This isn’t the first time the actress has opened up about being a parent.
In an interview with USA Today, Mendes claims that she only wants her children to think of her as their “mom” and not as a famous person.
“What I try to empathise is that I don’t let them see me put attention to how I dress,” she explains.
“They’ve never seen me get ready for something; they’ve never seen me at work, which is fine, for whoever wants to do it that way, but the way I keep it normal is by not letting them see me in these situations.
“I’m just mum. And I’m more than happy to just be mum.”
Many of Mendes’ admirers have assumed that she has stopped performing because she has been concentrating on being a parent; however, Mendes has hit back at this notion.
The actress claims on Instagram that the parts that have been offered to her haven’t ‘excited’ her.
“I never quit acting,” she writes.
“I wanted to be home with my babies and, fortunately, my other business ventures allowed me to do that more than acting would.
“Also, I was not excited about the stereotypical roles being offered to me at the time. Especially after working on the film Lost River – that was a dream project. That’s a tough act to follow.
“What’s the point of this post? To shift that narrative. I never quit.”
A Majority Of Women Feel It’s A Huge ‘Red Flag’ If A Man Refuses To Watch Barbie Movie
Have you seen the Barbie movie?
Hold onto your pink hats movie fans, because the Barbie movie craze isn’t just about entertainment—it’s also reshaping the dating game. As Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling teamed up to bring Barbie and Ken to life on the big screen, they inadvertently unleashed a new dating litmus test.
In the glittery world of 2023, where Barbie reigns supreme, it’s not just a film; it’s a phenomenon. And it’s so big that it’s inspiring memes, sparking social chatter, and, most interestingly, becoming a litmus test for budding relationships.
Change Research decided to dive deep into this captivating phenomenon by surveying over 1,000 individuals aged 18 to 34. They wanted to know what raised red flags when it came to potential partners. The results were a rollercoaster of insights, but the real shocker was how many women found it utterly cringeworthy if their date refused to watch the Barbie movie.
A jaw-dropping 53 percent of women considered it a major red flag if their potential partner turned down a viewing of the Greta Gerwig-directed flick. Gentlemen, it seems like this is less of an issue for you, with only 31 percent of guys giving it a thumbs-down.
For women, though, the biggest “ick” came from a partner identifying as a MAGA Republican (76 percent), closely followed by having no hobbies (66 percent), and shouting “All Lives Matter” from the rooftops (60 percent). Other concerns included denying the existence of more than two genders (58 percent), being a conversation dud (58 percent), being a communist (55 percent), or being a Joe Rogan podcast enthusiast (55 percent).
Men, on the other hand, danced to a different beat. Their top “ick” factor was a partner identifying as a communist (64 percent), followed by having no hobbies (60 percent), proudly flaunting the MAGA Republican badge (59 percent), being a conversation wallflower (42 percent), or obsessing over astrology (41 percent).
But here’s the kicker: the Barbie movie red flag is no new concept. It seems that several savvy ladies have already been applying this litmus test to their relationships. Some brave souls on TikTok have been vocal about their convictions. One user simply said, “Take your boyfriend to Barbie; if he doesn’t get it…dump him.”
Another TikToker issued a stern warning: “If you’re dating a man and he doesn’t like the Barbie movie, you need to break up with him.” To which a wise woman added, “Agreed. He is not Kenough for you.”
Someone even suggested that taking your boyfriend to see Barbie should be the ultimate relationship test to decide if he’s a keeper for the long haul. Now, that’s some Barbie-powered relationship wisdom!
So, there you have it, folks. In the world of dating in 2023, a refusal to embrace the Barbie movie might just be the ultimate dealbreaker. Barbie and Ken have spoken, and they demand you see the movie!
