Kate Winslet Shares Her Thoughts About Leonardo DiCaprio Getting “Fatter”

As any girl who was below the age of 100 at the time might remember, Kate Winslet received a lot of attention, good and bad, for her slightly larger than Hollywood average curves during Titanic‘s initial release  in 1997. This time around, it’s her costar Leonardo DiCaprio who’s having his voluptuousness critiqued…by Winslet! “We do look very different, we’re older,” the Carnage actress told iTV’s Daybreak in an interview about Titanic 3D. “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.” Aw, that’s not fair! Look at him. Leo was barely through puberty when he had to make every tween in America swoon and drowned in the Atlantic!

Of course, Winslet is pretty well-known as a non-stop geyser of hilariously inappropriate comments, though up until now they’ve almost all been self-deprecating. “My Heart Will Go On,” her sex scenes, the contents of her stomach: Kate couldn’t hold back anything if she tried! Of course, she isn’t the first person to discuss Leo’s slightly rounder physique in public. “Some of those pounds on later Hoover were not prosthetic. I’ll say it. Leo got a little fat,” joked J. Edgar screenwriter Dustin Lance Black last fall. See, Kate? Leo’s probably still working off that J. Edgar weight. It’s a historical fact that the first director of the FBI had a gigantic apple head!

“My Heart Will Go On”: Just Another Part Of Titanic That Makes Kate Winslet Barf

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.’”
