The glorious Kate Winslet always tells it like it is. Last week, she lobbed a true-but-harsh insult at Celine Dion. And yesterday, she made a comment about the release of “Titanic 3D” that can’t have made Leonardo DiCaprio feel too good looking in the mirror.
“We do look very different, we’re older. Leo’s 37, I’m 36,” said Winslet speaking to Kate Garraway of the UK morning show “Daybreak.” “We were 21 and 22 when we made that film. You know, he’s fatter now — I’m thinner. It’s true though!”
While it’s not the kindest thing she’s ever said, I think she’s semi-justified.
When “Titanic” originally hit theaters in 1997, the women of the world thought DiCaprio was the most beautiful thing on two legs, while Winslet was widely criticized for daring to have an ounce of baby fat on her face. But then again—that’s hardly DiCaprio’s fault. And while he might be wider of face these days, he’s still a very good looking dude.
Luckily, Winslet got off the subject quickly and moved on to another touchy issue—her kids, Mia, 12, and Joe, 9, seeing her famous nude scene in the film.
‘They’ve still not seen ‘Titanic’ but now they’re perfect ages to see it and they’ll see it on the big screen with me, in 3D,” explained Winslet. “I mean it’s going to be profoundly weird. I know the bits where I’m going to be covering my eyes like this. I’m on eye covering duty and someone else is going to be on ear covering duty because I haven’t got enough hands.”
Still, Winslet says that her son won’t be shocked to see that his mom disrobes in the film.
“He’s fully going to be, ‘When’s dinner time? Can we have dessert today and can I have ketchup?’ I mean that’s all he’s going to really be concerned about—when their next meal is coming. He’s a good boy, he’s a proper boy,” said Winslet.
