Released in 1997, Titanic It has established itself as one of the most iconic films in the history of cinema. The romance between Jack (Leonardo Dicaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet), set in the tragic sinking of the famous ship, deeply moved millions of viewers around the world. James Cameron’s work not only dominated the box office, but also swept the Oscars, taking home multiple awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. This combination of commercial and critical success has turned Titanic into a true masterpiece, and fans remain eager for any new anecdote about its making. Recently, Kate Winslet made a revelation about a key plot moment.

On board the Titanic, Jack and Rose live a passionate romance that begins with an iconic kiss. However, filming that scene was not as idyllic as it seems on screen. “My God, Leo is quite the romantic, isn’t he? “It doesn’t surprise me that all the young girls in the world wanted to be kissed by him,” Winslet said in an interview. And about that moment, he added: “We kept repeating that kiss, and I was wearing a lot of white makeup. Every time we had to color correct it, I always ended up looking like I sucked on a candy bar because his makeup messed up my face.”

Due to the amount of makeup they both wore, the tones mixed and Winslet ended up with a stained face, which forced the scene to be repeated several times. “God, it was a real disaster,” the British actress recalled with humor. She added: “It was a nightmare. Leo couldn’t stop laughing, and we had to repeat the scene about four times, because James Cameron wanted very specific lighting for that moment, since the sunset was constantly changing the light in the place where we were.

Furthermore, the place where they had to film was not the most comfortable. “We had to climb some stairs to get into position. The hair and makeup team couldn’t get there easily. So I had both of our makeup hidden, the brushes and the sponges, and between takes, I was basically the one retouching our faces.” Despite these awkwardnesses, Kate explained that it was a lot of fun and that they always ended up “laughing and covered in each other’s makeup.”

In an interview with Porter magazine, the star of Mare Of Easttown opened up and recalled how uncomfortable she felt with her fame after the release of Cameron’s epic romantic tragedy in 1997. “I felt like I had to look a certain way or be a certain way.” in a certain way, and because the intrusion of the media was so intense at that time, my life was quite unpleasant,” Winslet admitted.

“Journalists always said: ‘After Titanic you could have done anything, yet you chose to do these little projects’… And I was like, ‘Yes, of course I did! Do you know why? Because being famous is horrible,’” he added. Despite the unpleasant aspects of her fame, today the artist has learned to live with everything and she feels that “it is not a burden, or anything like that.” She has also come to terms with the film that catapulted her to international fame. “Titanic continues to bring people enormous amounts of joy,” she joked: “The only time I think ‘Now hide’ is when we’re on a ship,” she said with a laugh.

A few months ago, he also addressed this topic on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “Apparently I was too fat. Why were they so mean to me? They were very cruel. I wasn’t even fat,” said the actress from Avatar: The Way of Water, a film in which she reunited with James Cameron. According to Winslet, her pressure to have a perfect body led her to a crisis that she now talks openly about.
