Ryan Gosling has confirmed he has split up with his girlfriend Rachel McAdams - and some fans are so upset they're berating the actor in the street for letting her go. Gosling and MCAdams, who met on the set of 2004 romance movie The Notebook, were first reported to have split several months ago. And nothing could prepare Gosling for the reaction of some strangers. He tells American magazine GQ, "Women are mad at me. A girl came up to me on the street and she almost smacked me. (She was) like, `How could you? How could you let a girl like that go?' "I feel like I want to give people hugs, they seem so sad. Rachel and I should be the ones getting hugs! Instead, we're consoling everybody else."
