Why Jessica Simpson Turned Down The Lead In 'The Notebook'

YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund Geoffrey Beene National Scholarship Awards Gala

Picture this: "The Notebook", starring RYAN GOSLING and JESSICA SIMPSON(???) You can't, can you? Well, according to Jessica, it could have happened.

In her new book Jessica says she was up for the part that eventually went to RACHEL MCADAMS, but she TURNED IT DOWN. Why? Because, quote, "they wouldn't budge on taking out the sex scene."

The icing on the cake is that her co-star would have been Ryan . . . who was her FIRST CRUSH back in the '90s when they auditioned for "The Mickey Mouse Club"together.
