In 2004, Rachel McAdams was just making a name for herself as Regina George in the cinematic classic that is Mean Girls. (We are not being sarcastic, and welcome anyone to debate us on this.)
Little did she know, months after that film's April release, she'd become a household name due to one magical role: Allie Hamilton in The Notebook opposite future ex-boyfriend Ryan Gosling. Suh-woon.
A few years after the film hit theaters, Rachel's audition tape hit the web, proving just how talented and freakin' flawless the girl is.
You loved it, we loved...but did she love it? Not exactly.
The 35-year-old beauty was on the Today show Tuesday to promote her new thriller, A Most Wanted Man, and the hosts decided to show her a clip from the audition that landed her the part of a lifetime.
Wait until you see how she reacted when she saw her 25-year-old self exchanging lines with Ry Guy (oh, how we wish they were still together):
But you know what's more cringe-worthy, Rach? The fact Al Roker and Matt Lauer admitted to crying together while watching that movie on an airplane...to you on live TV. That's a visual.
