London: Actress Kate Winslet was forced to shave her arms to shoot key evening scenes for hit 1997 film ‘Titanic’ because the moonlight kept striking her arm hair and ruining the shot. Winslet was 20 years old when she stepped into the role of Rose opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in director James Cameron`s blockbuster hit. The actress recalls her arm hair stood on end and caused complications for Cameron.

"The light was catching all the little hairs on my arm and Cameron said, `We`re going to have to shave your arm.` So we stop filming and the make-up artist has a Bic razor and some Gillette shaving foam. It was hilarious," she told a website.

"I wasn`t the only one affected by the chilly conditions Leo was just useless. He was like, `I don`t want to be cold anymore.` He was a 21-year-old baby," she added.
