I`ve aged better than Leonardo DiCaprio, says Kate Winslet
London: Kate Winslet has said that her co-star in the 1997 hit ‘Titanic’ is “fatter” now while she’s thinner.
The actress, who has struggled with weight gain in the past, believes she has aged better than Leonardo DiCaprio.
“We do look very different, we’re older. Leo’s 37, I’m 36 – we were 21 and 22 when we made that film. You know, he’s fatter now – I’m thinner,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling ITV’s show ‘Daybreak’ in an interview.
For Winslet, seeing herself as she was 15 years ago made watching the recently released 3D version of the movie “bizarre”.
“The second my face came on I was like, ‘Oh my God, make it stop, switch it off, somebody make it stop, turn the sound down, is that what we looked like? Oh my God, look what I looked like and look what Leo looks like!’ she said.
“It was completely bizarre, it was like somebody saying we’re going to take a home video that we made of you that’s three-and-a-half hours long and we’re going to make the world watch it all over again,” she added.
The star said that her children Joe, seven, and Mia, 11, are old enough to see the film but joked that she will be covering their eyes at times.
In one of the film’s most famous scenes, Winslet’s character, society beauty Rose, poses in the nude for DiCaprio’s talented, but penniless, artist, Jack.
