Throughout her career Rachel has received several nominations
and awards for her performances.  In 2005
she received three wins and five nominations at the MTV Movie Awards for her
work in The Notebook, and in 2009 won
the Female Star of the Year Award from ShoWest. 
Rachel has dated a few of her co-stars including Ryan Gosing from The Notebook (who she was once engaged
