While Rachel McAdams may not be one to flaunt her relationships in public, fans have been fortunate to catch a few glimpses over the years. One of these moments was when she won Best Kiss at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards with her co-star from “The Notebook,” Ryan Gosling. Their chemistry was undeniable. In an interview, McAdams shared that she often takes away a close relationship from every job she does — romantic or otherwise.
This was certainly the case when she met Michael Sheen on the set of “Midnight in Paris.” The two made their relationship official when they walked arm-in-arm at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, but their romance was short-lived.
Sandra Bullock: Ryan Gosling & Matthew McConaughey
One of Sandra Bullock’s most famous romances was with Ryan Gosling, whom she dated for about a year starting in 2002. The two met on the set of “Murder by Numbers” and quickly hit it off. Despite their 16-year age gap, Gosling later revealed that Bullock was one of the best girlfriends he had ever had.
Another of her high-profile relationships was with her "A Time to Kill" co-star, Matthew McConaughey. Although their relationship reportedly lasted for two years, neither of them publicly confirmed it at the time. Bullock tried to deny the rumors but eventually gave in and hinted that they had dated.
Eva Mendes: George Augusto & Ryan Gosling
From 2002 to 2011, actor Eva Mendes was in a relationship with George Augusto, a producer from Peru. During their nine-year relationship, Mendes was candid about her views on marriage, stating that she didn't see it as a necessary institution in modern society. Despite their long history together, the couple eventually went their separate ways.
In 2011, Mendes's love life took an unexpected turn when she met her current partner, actor Ryan Gosling, on the set of "The Place Beyond the Pines." They have since continued building an enduring relationship (sans the ring exchange, as she wished) and have two daughters.
Michael Sheen: Kate Beckinsale & Sarah Silverman
Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen's love story began when they worked at a 1995 touring production of "The Seagull." A few years into their relationship, Beckinsale became pregnant with their daughter Lily. In 2002, the couple split, and shortly after, Beckinsale became engaged to director Len Wiseman. Although no longer together, they still hold respect and love for each other.
Prior to Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen getting together, Silverman had dated Jimmy Kimmel, while Sheen had been linked to Rachel McAdams. In 2018, Silverman tweeted that she and Sheen had ended things. She clarified that there wasn't any drama involved, but the long-distance challenge was too much, with Sheen based in the UK and Silverman living in the US.
Eddie Fisher: Elizabeth Taylor & Debbie Reynolds
She was Hollywood's darling, and he was a rising star in the music industry. Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher were the ultimate power couple. In 1955, they tied the knot, and the following year, they welcomed their daughter, Carrie Fisher. In 1958, their mutual friend, Mike Todd, passed away in a plane crash.
Fisher had allegedly been having an affair with none other than Todd's grieving widow, Elizabeth Taylor. By 1959, they went their separate ways, and Fisher wasted no time in marrying Elizabeth Taylor the same day his divorce from Reynolds was finalized. Taylor revealed that, in hindsight, marrying Fisher may have been more about finding comfort in the aftermath of Todd's death than true love.
