Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
The scene where Connie rides the train home after her first sexual encounter with Paul, and silently remembers the encounter, was filmed in one continuous take. The camera simply stayed on Diane Lane as she went through a series of expressions, and then the scene was cut and edited together.
George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Robert Redford, John Travolta and Bruce Willis were offered the role of Edward.
To prepare for the initial love scene between Paul and Connie, director Adrian Lyne had Diane Lane watch the film Aimee & Jaguar (1999).

Brad Pitt and Ryan Phillippe were offered the role of Paul. However during pre-production, the producers decided that Paul be French rather than American, so Olivier Martinez received the part.

Meg Ryan was the original choice to play Connie, but Alyssa Milano was cast. After she was forced to turn the role down due to her commitment to the TV series Charmed (1998), these actresses were offered the role (and they turned it down too): Portia de Rossi; Jodie Foster (she chose to star in Panic Room (2002)); Kristin Davis (she had a commitment to the TV series Sex and the City (1998)); Portia de Rossi; Kyra Sedgwick; Brooke Shields; Hilary Swank; Kate Winslet Also, Tori Spelling was briefly considered for the role. Even though Josie Davis and Angelina Jolie auditioned for the role, they lost out to Diane Lane. Reportedly, Jennifer Jason Leigh wanted the role too, but this time, it was Adrian Lyne who turned an actress down.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

The special edition DVD features the alternate ending where there is a different dialogue after they both kiss in the car, during the final scene. Edward then steps out of the car before walking up and entering the police station. Fox & Regency wanted this ending at first (it was a more Hollywood ending), but the director and the cast insisted that they put in the current ending you see on the theatrical release.
