Sporting minimal makeup and a dazzling smile for Allure, the gorgeous actress looks natural and flawless on the magazine’s August issue – her first major magazine cover in nearly two years.
Rachel, 35, has been laying low as of late, but she’s about to step back into the spotlight with a number of projects, including starring opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman in A Most Wanted Man, as well as an untitled film with Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper.
Coincidentally, the Allure cover comes out the same week that it was reported that Rachel’s ex-boyfriend, Ryan Gosling, is expecting his first child with his longtime girlfriend, Eva Mendes.
Ryan and Rachel recently celebrated the 10-year anniversary of The Notebook, in which they both co-starred. The film’s passion went on to make for amazing chemistry on screen – and off. Ryan and Rachel dated from 2005 to 2007, with a brief reunion in 2008.
"God bless The Notebook," Ryan told GQ magazine in 2007. "It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life.
As for Rachel, she's also moved on with a new beau. After splitting from Michael Sheen in 2013, the Toronto-based actress has been dating Tragically Hip manager Patrick Sambrook.
