Rachel McAdams got to watch her audition tape for her chick flick of all chick flicks “The Notebook,” and she cringed and laughed the whole time.
The 35-year-old actress was on the “Today” show to promote her new film “A Most Wanted Man” when Matt Lauer surprised her with the audition tape from 10 years ago.
After looking embarrassed watching her old audition tape, Lauer asked McAdams, “Why are you cringing? You got the part. It worked out well! Nicely done.”
It was also revealed that Lauer wept watching “The Notebook,” according to the Daily Mail.
“We’re on a flight from New York to L.A., I’m sitting next to Matt and he’s watching a movie, I’m reading a book and I notice he’s crying,” Lauer’s co-host Al Roker said. “He’s sobbing.”
Roker decided to watch the rest of the movie with Lauer and joined him crying.
“We held hands the rest of the way,” Roker said.
“Embrace it,” McAdams said. “I love that. It’s very sweet.”
