Britney Spears once tried her hand at acting. She auditioned for the role of Allie in the iconic romantic film The Notebook, which eventually went to Rachel McAdams.
This revelation has sparked plenty of intrigue among fans and—finally—the tape has made its way to the internet!
A Glimpse Into Britney’s Acting Aspirations
In the leaked audition tape, Britney Spears showcases her acting talent, providing a fresh perspective on a role that many associate with Rachel McAdams. While her performance may not fully capture the essence of the character as McAdams did, it’s evident that Britney’s audition is fairly good regardless.
The footage has raised questions and discussions among fans and industry insiders alike. Why did the producers consider her for the role, and what would it have been like to see Britney Spears take on the character of Allie?!
Britney’s Take on the Audition
In her forthcoming memoir, Britney Spears acknowledges her audition and expresses her desire to have worked with her former Mickey Mouse Club co-star, Ryan Gosling. However, she also clarified that she didn’t want to pursue an acting career and was okay with not getting the part.
This revelation seems far from controversial and fits into the narrative of Spears focusing on her music career. Interestingly, Jessica Simpson also previously disclosed that she had been offered the part but declined due to the film’s intimate scenes!
The Leak and Its Origins
The British tabloid, The Daily Mail, published the video, leaving fans speculating that a substantial sum, a million dollars, was potentially paid for its release.
The rumors of the tape surfaced during the 2021 #FreeBritney movement, alleging that someone was attempting to sell it for a million dollars. A theory suggests that the tabloid might have acquired the tape and strategically released it to garner maximum attention.
