It has been 20 years since Titanic propelled Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio into superstardom. The then-young actors made impressions as Rose and Jack, and they formed a bond on the set of the movie, as well. In fact, Winslet recently revealed that she and DiCaprio still talk on occasion, and when they do, they sometimes quote lines from Titanic to one another. Cue the awws. She said,
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.
While Kate Winslet didn't get into detail about which lines she and Leonardo DiCaprio both fondly like to throw back at one another, I'm sure you've probably already thought about a few that are primed for this sort of back and forth, including Jack's "never let go," and Rose's response: "I'll never let go, Jack." There's also the famous exchange where Jack tells Rose he'll teach her to "ride like a man", "chew tobacco like a man" and "spit like a man." In addition, there's the famous "I'm flying, Jack" scene, although that one isn't as much of an exchange between the two characters, as it is Winslet's character getting excited about the experience of standing on the front of the ship rather than both characters talking a lot.
Although we don't know a ton about their secret exchanges, it's still very cool that Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have kept the shared memories of their Titanic experience alive via these short conversations. The Mountain Between Us actress also told Glamour that she and DiCaprio often have conversations that are so "stupid" she'd never want to tell the world exactly what they say to one another.
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?'
Still, at least occasionally, those stupid conversations are Titanic-related.
It's been a long time since James Cameron's Titanic came out, and both of the movie's leads have moved on to plenty of other projects. Winslet's next set to star in The Mountain Between Us, a survival thriller also featuring Idris Elba. She's also in the next Woody Allen film, Wonder Wheel. As for Leonardo DiCaprio, the actor has an adaptation of The Black Hand coming up. If you'd like to see what all is hitting theaters over the next few months, you can take a look at our full schedule.
If it's been a while since you indulged in Titanic, the movie is currently available streaming on Netflix. Give it a watch. It's the 20th anniversary, after all.
