Avatar 2 was released on 16 December 2022, the movie is still going strong at the Box office and will also release on OTT. The cast of Avatar: The way of Water includes Sam Worthington playing Jake Sully, Kate Winslet playing Ronal, and Michelle Yeoh as Dr. Karina, including many others reprising their roles and new additions. The Sully couple has few kids now and The Way of Water revolves around their relationship and an impending disaster.

Winslet’s press tour for Avatar has been full of fun, frolic, and drama. Her beauty is captivating, and so is her warm yet bold personality. In her press tour, the Titanic star encountered every kind of question and comment, some were endearing, curious, and intelligent and some were off-putting.

On the tour she disclosed that the actress held her breath for seven minutes underwater, yes, SEVEN, that is almost insane. Cameron said, “Kate’s a demon for prep, so she latched onto the free diving as something that she could build her character around,”, the director further explained that,

“Kate’s character is someone who grew up underwater as an ocean-adapted Na’vi — they’re so physically different from the forest Na’vi, that we’d almost classify them as a subspecies. So she had to be utterly calm underwater, and it turned out that she was a natural.”

There is a video of her holding her breath for seven mins 15 sec, which breaks Tom Cruise’s record, Kate Winslet added saying,

“I have the video of me surfacing saying, ‘Am I dead, have I died?’ And then going, ‘What was [my time]?’ Straight away I wanted to know my time. And I couldn’t believe it…The next thing I say is, ‘We need to the radio set. I wanted Jim to know right away.’” 

Both James Cameron and Kate Winslet bounced off each other’s energy and joked around the entire interview. Their dynamic added a lot of fun and laughter to the interview. Having worked together earlier in Titanic, it seems that the director knows his actors and actresses well.

Winslet took a moment and bought herself close to the mic and talked directly to the young reporter, “This is your first time doing it?” the Oscar-winning actress asked, the reporter nodded, to which Kate Winslet replied,

“Ok, well guess what? When we do this interview, it’s going to be the most amazing interview ever. And do you know why? Because we’ve decided that it’s going to be. So, we’ve decided right now, me and you, that this is going to be a fantastic interview.”
