Titanic might just be one of the most well-known films in the entire world, even to people who might not be avid cinema-goers. James Cameron created this absolute masterpiece of a film with near-perfect execution, invoking sentiments inside everyone’s hearts who have witnessed the film personally. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet became legends with this movie’s release, delivering some of the greatest performances known in the entertainment industry to date, some even going as far as to say that they had the best on-screen chemistry in any film.

To this day, DiCaprio and Winslet are good friends with each other, though there is someone else that Kate Winslet doesn’t seem to be too fond of from the sets of Titanic.

In an interview with The Guardian, she reveals that the only way she would ever work with James Cameron again would be if she was to be paid an excessive amount of money for the project of which her former director would be a part.


Why Kate Winslet Doesn’t Want To Work With James Cameron Again?

Going back in time, all the way to Titanic, Kate Winslet had to practically beg James Cameron to cast her in the role of Rose DeWitt Bukater alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack Dawson in the film. Before this, she was working in London at a sandwich shop and needed the big break to set her career in motion. Cameron, who wanted an all-star cast for the film was not so eager at the start but warmed up to the idea of casting Winslet as his lead female role in the end.

But what Kate Winslet was not ready for was the harsh working conditions and Cameron’s strict requirements from his cast. During the shooting of Titanic, Winslet revealed that the working conditions were very demanding and harsh, which was the pressure that came with working on such a big project. She also revealed that Cameron had some anger issues during the shoot, and also the infamous case of him bullying Winslet for her weight on the sets.


“He has a temper like you wouldn’t believe. You’d have to pay me a lot of money to work with Jim again.”

With this comment said though, it seems like she is getting a lot of money because Kate Winslet is all set to take on her role as Ronal in James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.
