This is BRILLIANT. As everyone knows, at the end of Titanic, Jack could easily have climbed up on that door with Rose — and even though she promised to never let go, Rose actually did just let Jack slip away. In celebration of the film’s twentieth anniversary, Stephen Colbert asked Kate Winslet a boatload of questions, including ‘What happened?’ — Rose did indeed let him go. Kate’s answer: “I lied.” And so, the delightful pair decide to fix that ridiculous ending — after all, there was plenty of room for two!
Among the interesting tidbits La Winslet revealed during the course of the questioning:
- She and Leo were spritzed with Evian to make the car sex scene even sweatier.
- James Cameron himself actually did the sketch of Rose — Kate — who clarified she was wearing a bikini when she posed.
- Winslet auditioned for the movie with Matthew McConaughey; Cameron wanted Leo.
I love how game Kate is for anything and everything, and how much pure fun these two had together; she even got into the fake shivering.
Here’s the whole round of questioning:
This is truly the Titanic ending we all deserve.
Suck it, Leo!
