A never-before-seen Britney Spears audition for the role of Allie Hamilton in the film The Notebook from 2004 has come to light, leaving fans surprised by the unusual casting choice. In the almost three minute clip, Spears, just 21 years old at the time, faces Ryan Gosling, who plays her co-star, Noah Calhoun, as she reveals to him that she is marrying another man. The audition was led by casting director Matthew Barry, who shared revealing details about how Spears came to be in consideration for the role.

The movie "The Notebook" takes place in 1940s South Carolina and focuses on passionate love story between Noah (played by Gosling) and Allie (finally played by Rachel McAdams), who face obstacles in their relationship due to his parents' disapproval and World War II. Britney Spears' audition took place in 2002, after her participation in the comedy-drama "Crossroads" in 2002.

At the audition, Spears confronts Ryan Gosling, who reads her lines off camera. In the clip, Allie, the character Spears was auditioning to play, tells Noah that she is marrying another man, leaving Noah, played by Gosling, devastated. The Spears' performance is compelling and emotionalprompting Matthew Barry to praise her audition.

Barry shared his impressions of Spears' audition, noting that They were amazed by his performance.. "It was a difficult decision," she said. "We were speechless. I was impressed. Absolutely impressed. She gave her best that day."

Importantly, Britney Spears' audition occurred before the role of Allie Hamilton was ultimately awarded to Rachel McAdams. At the time, other big-name actresses, including Claire Danes, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel, were also considered favorites for the role. However, McAdams took the role and became one of the protagonists of the film most loved by fans.

The revelation of this missed audition has generated a lot of interest on social media and among Britney Spears fans. Despite not landing the role, the singer and actress recently shared in her new book that she's "glad" she didn't. Spears cited her difficulties with Method's performance on the set of "Crossroads" and how it affected her mind.

According to Spears, the Method performance experience was a challenge for her. He wrote: "My problem wasn't with anyone involved in the production but with what acting did to my mind. I think I started Method acting, I just didn't know how to get out of character. I really became that other person." ".

Despite the opportunity to return to acting alongside Ryan Gosling, with whom she shared time on "The Mickey Mouse Club," Spears said, 'I'm glad I didn't do it. If I had, instead of working on my album' In the Zone', I would have been acting like a 1940s heiress day and night...I hope to never come close to that occupational hazard again."
