Titanic was released sixteen years ago, and will be coming back to the big screen in 3D this weekend, just don’t play that Celine Dion song around the film’s star, Kate Winslet, because she’s sick of hearing it.
Winslet recently told MTV news,
“I do feel like throwing up. I wish I could say ‘Oh listen, everybody! It’s the Celine Dion song!’ But I don’t. I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll.”
“Every time I go into a bar in a hotel where there’s a live pianist, or into a restaurant where they’re changing their music according to who walks into the door, it’s thrilling for people to ‘surprise me’ with that song.”
The actress is grateful for the role that launched her career, but the downsides of the role? How about not being able to get on a boat without hearing some sort of a joke. Even to this day!
Winslet adds, “Honestly, I actually now get onto boats and say, ‘No jokes, OK? No jokes. Can we just move on from that? And if you have any jokes, let’s just get them out of the way right now. Thank you. Anyone? Jokes, jokes? OK, moving on.’ And then they still tell jokes.”
The big 3D release is set for April 4th, and watch out because a huge re-opening is expected at the box office for this coming weekend. Even against ‘American Reunion,’ the return of the original ‘American Pie’ cast, for the first time in 9 years.
