It has been almost 25 years since the release of the film Titanic, Kate Winslet has opened up about the many disparaging comments she received about her weight during that time. “Obviously I was really fat. Isn’t that gross? Why were people so mean? They were so mean… I wasn’t even fat,” she said on the podcast. Happiness Sadness Confusion.
Rose David Pugator’s translator says people made fun of her weight in connection with the famous scene where she floats to a door after the boat sinks. According to them, he was so big that his partner Jack, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, couldn’t get on the makeshift boat.
“I wanted to say: Don’t you dare treat me like that. I’m a young woman. My body is changing. I’m trying to understand it. I live with insecurities. I’m scared. Don’t make it harder than it already is. This is bullying,” she continued.
The scene where Jack dies of hypothermia has stirred emotions since the 1997 film’s release. Could the pair have boarded the floating door together? In a recent interview Toronto Sun, director James Cameron said he conducted a science experiment to prove that only one of the two characters could survive on the object. It will be presented during a special program scheduled to air in February, the director adds.
