It’s been hotly debated for nearly two decades now: Could Jack have fit on that raft with Rose? Did he really have to freeze to death in those iceberg-infested waters just so that she could sprawl out like she owned that damn thing? Well, we finally have our answer from none other than Kate Winslet herself!
The Titanic star was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday when the late-night host flat-out told her that she unnecessarily let her beloved Jack (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) freeze to death — and she agreed!
“I think he could have actually fitted on that bit of door,” she freely admitted.
So there you have it, folks. After years of fighting with friends — and even a special episode of Mythbusters that was dedicated to it — that mystery is now solved.
As for the mystery of Will Leo and Kate finally admit they are secretly in love with each other and make us all happy already? Well, time can only tell. For now, Winslet is just grateful that the public still cares so much for the two of them.
“People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space, which at the end of the day, that’s so lovely, isn’t it?” Winslet told Kimmel. “It’s been 20 years and people still get such a kick out of it. It’s really quite endearing. And we do laugh about it.”
Twenty years is nothing, Kate. We’ll never let go of you two.More On
