There's no denying that Rachel McAdams is the current undisputed queen of romantic comedies. And with Friday's release of About Time, a time-traveling love story from the creator of Love Actually, her reign is set to continue.
But why has this brunette beauty so successfully cemented her place in all of our hearts? For starters, she's always one line away from having us bawling into our movie theater napkins, and that goes for anyone, whether you like your romances to come from novel adaptations or from the same duo that brought you The Internship. So before this weekend's dinner-and-a-movie meet-up, give her sweetest declarations a read, and feel free to pass them on to the Ryan Gosling in your life.

It was the setting of one of the most romantic recent movies – and now Boone Hall Plantation is the site of some real-life celebrity romance.
The historic South Carolina plantation, open to the public since 1956, hosted Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds hush-hush nuptials Sunday night.
The pair tied the knot on the site, just a few miles outside of downtown Charleston, S.C., which appeared prominently in 2004's romantic tear-jerker, The Notebook. (It doubled as the Hamilton's beach house, according to IMDB.)
