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.

There's no bad blood between Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen. The exes simply "have different visions for the future," a source tells PEOPLE about the pair, whose split was confirmed on Wednesday after two years of dating.
"Rachel wants to settle down and is dreaming of having a family. Michael always seemed content with their relationship. Since he already has a daughter [Lily, 14, with Kate Beckinsale], he feels no need to have more children. He wants to focus on his career."
"They still have some contact and are friendly," the source adds, but it was their differences that eventually led to the demise of their relationship.

Rachel McAdams's last boyfriend was a little older than her. Now it looks like she's keeping company with someone from the Cretaceous Period.
The actress, 34, who recently split with her beau of two years, actor Michael Sheen, was courted by the Toronto Raptors's velociraptor mascot on Monday night.
He presented the Midnight in Paris actress with flowers and a stuffed dinosaur as the Toronto public-address announcer introduced the London, Ontario, native to the crowd, who cheered wildly.

Things are over for Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen.
The couple, who first met when they costarred in Woody Allen's 2010 romantic comedy Midnight in Paris, recently ended their two-year relationship, PEOPLE confirms.
The pair acknowledged their budding romance in 2011, after appearing arm-in-arm at that year's Cannes Film Festival and being spotted together throughout the fall of 2010.

Are Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen taking their relationship to the next level – with a baby?
Not quite, although the actress has been sporting a faux bump on the set of About Time, her latest film costarring Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson.
In pictures taken while filming in London's Notting Hill neighborhood, an in-character (and dressed-down!) McAdams, 33 – who was first linked to Sheen, 43, in 2010 – is sporting quite the belly.

After turns in The Notebook and The Time Traveler's Wife, Rachel McAdams has the lock on serious romance onscreen – but off, it's all fun and (dirty) games with The Vow costar Channing Tatum.
"Channing got the props department to make a prosthetic, um, member," the actress, 33, tells U.K magazine Stella of filming the upcoming movie's nude scene.
"Literally a fake penis. I didn't know what to do – I thought, 'Is that the real deal?' It was very realistic. It was ridiculous, the scale of it!"
