Back in seventh grade, you better believe we’d start bawling the second we heard those first flutey notes of Celine Dion‘s “My Heart Will Go On.” After hearing it for the millionth time, however, even our squishy adolescent brains started to sour on the Titanic soundtrack. Kate Winslet knows what we’re talking about! “I wish I could say, ‘Oh listen, everybody! It’s the Celine Dion song!’ But I don’t,” Winslet admitted to MTV News about the newly re-released movie and soundtrack. “I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll.” While the Academy Award-winning ballad apparently makes Kate “feel like throwing up,” it’s not the only element of the newly released Titantic 3D that gives the actress a serious case of the dry heaves, as Winslet has made very, very clear in recent interviews:
- “Even my American accent, I can’t listen to it. It’s awful. Hopefully it’s so much better now. It sounds terribly self indulgent but actors do tend to be very self-critical. I have a hard time watching any of my performances, but watching Titanic I was just like ‘Oh God, I want to do that again,’” Winslet joked with the Telegraph. “Every single scene, I’m like ‘Really, really? You did it like that? Oh my God.’”
- “It is like somebody saying, ‘You know that home video we made of you 16 years ago that took seven-and-a-half months to make? Well, we’re going to bring it out again and we’re going to ask everybody to watch it,’” Kate admitted to ABC News.
- “The second it came up I literally went, ‘make it stop, make it stop, turn it off,” Winslet joked, also with ABC News. “I’m blocking it off. Do I really sound like that? Did I really look like that?’ It’s very, very bizarre,”
- “I’m not going to look,” Kate told Metro UK about her love scene with costar Leonardo DiCaprio. “I’ll be in the bar by that point or on the floor.”
Sigh. Kate Winslet, you make us do the opposite of throw up. What is it again? Oh right…smile.
