Our hearts <3
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
While there are plenty of on-screen couples that have made us believe in true love, none will ever compare to Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt-Bukater. The Titanic love story has certainly lasted the test of time – fans still bicker over whether or not Jack would have fitted on that piece of wood (he most definitely could have), and to this day I can’t get on a boat without crying out the obligatory: ‘I’m the king of the world!’
The fact that Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are best friends in real life with just as much chemistry off-screen makes the whole thing even better. The Titanic cast recently reunited to save icebergs (the irony is not lost on them) and Kate has even hinted that she might be doing another film with Leo.
But what do the pair do when they meet up to hang out as mates? We all love to imagine that they sit around re-enacting the best moments from the film, and it turns out that, actually, that’s exactly what they do.
In an interview with Glamour, Kate revealed that she has a ‘very, very close’ relationship with Leo, and that in their downtime they love nothing more than to recite lines from the epic movie.
‘Sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other,’ she admitted.
‘You don’t even want to know the last conversation we had, because it was so funny and made me laugh so much. We found ourselves saying to each other, “Can you imagine if the world really knew the stupid things we say?”
‘I’m not going to tell you what we actually talk about, but yeah, we’re very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny.’
Oh, to be a fly on the wall during their coffee catch ups…
