"Fundamentally, I was planning to play with him as a young guy, also it was amusing".

Based on Nicholas Sparks' novel of the same name, the romantic drama focuses on the Noah and Allie's love story, spanning the earliest days of their teen courtship through their struggles to remember each other in their twilight years. "He was like. 'Why?' I was like, 'Because everybody knows what you look like at 30 years old".

George Clooney says he almost starred in the film and wanted to play the now-iconic role that ended up going to Ryan Gosling more than 15 years ago.

"[When filming wrapped] there wasn't the pandemic, and we hadn't set the whole West Coast on fire", he said.

"We just wanted to do it because we wanted to work together, (but) it ended up being not the right thing for us to do", he explained. Clooney explained that he decided not to take the project because he felt he did not resemble Newman at all.

The cast also includes David Oyelowo, Sophie Rundle, Kyle Chandler and Ethan Peck in pivotal roles. "It's going to be great.'" But it never came to be after George realized he didn't look anything like a younger Paul. "She was so gung-ho". There was one problem, though: Both actors were too well-known.

He added, "We bailed out and I think 10 years later they made it".
