Kate Winslet Recalls “This Was A Nightmare”

Kate Winslet while describing a scene from Titanic also shared, “I look at that and I just see how much I couldn’t breathe in that bloody corset. ”

She then spoke about the flying hands scene stating, “This was a nightmare, shooting this because Leo couldn’t stop laughing, and we had to reshoot this about four times because [director James Cameron] wanted a very specific light for this, obviously, and the sunsets kept changing where we were.”

The British star further said, “This was a section of the ship — it wasn’t part of the actual whole ship set that we had. We had to climb up a ladder to get to it, I remember. Hair and makeup couldn’t reach us.”

“Now, what you wouldn’t know, because Leo looks completely natural, but he had to lie on sunbeds; there’s a lot of fake tan makeup going on,” said Winslet adding, “So I have got hidden in [one side of my dress] his makeup and brushes and sponge, and [mine] in the other side. And between takes, I was basically redoing our makeup.”
