Kate Winslet Gives Her Opinion On ‘Titanic’ Ending | Film News


It was a scene that left many in tears when they first saw Titanic in the cinema in 1997: when Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Jack froze to death in the icy waters of the Atlantic ocean to save his young lover; when Kate Winslet‘s Rose makes the promise to never let go before finding a way to attract help (and ironically letting Leo sink to the bottom of the Atlantic).


It has been a scene that movie fans have puzzled over for nearly 20 years, with many of the opinion that Jack could have also fit onto the floating piece of debris that kept Rose alive. The opinion was so strong that a programme called Mythbusters proved that there was room for both of them.


Now Kate Winslet, Rose herself, has weighed in with her opinion:


I think he could have actually fitted on that bit of door.


The conversation occurred on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, when the U.S. talk show host brought up the issue. So James Cameron is guilty of murdering the movie crush of millions? Not according to him. Speaking to The Guardian in 2012, Cameron shot down the accusations:


Wait a minute, I’m going to call up William Shakespeare and ask why Romeo and Juliet had to die.


Touché, James Cameron.


Titanic was a hugely successful film, currently being the second-highest grossing film of all time behind Avatar, and helped launch Winslet to stardom, who is currently promoting her latest movie Steve Jobs; a biopic on the enigmatic Apple founder where she plays Joanna Hoffman, a marketing executive for Apple and Jobs’ confidante.


Leonardo DiCaprio is also making the rounds for his role as Hugh Glass in The Revenant; have Kate and Leo been talking about their first collaboration? Maybe. Check out the trailer for Steve Jobs below.
