London: Actress Kate Winslet says her co-star Leonardo DiCaprio has been a pillar of strength for her since they starred in the 1997 blockbuster ‘Titanic’.

"He knows me better than anyone else in the world. Lots of male friendships begin as a cheeky snog. Or a little undercurrent of flirtation. But Leo and I? No! He`s my rock," a website quoted her as saying.

"I don`t know what I would have done if I hadn`t had him," she added.

DiCaprio believes he and Kate are very close because they grew up together.

"We literally grew up together. And in every major life event we`ve been, there was a support mechanism for each other," he said.
