Released in 1997, Titanic continues to be one of the most heart-wrenching movies in the film industry. Based on the sinking of the RMS Titanic vessel in 1912, Titanic features the fictional love story of poor artist Jack Dawson and socialite Rose DeWitt Bukater.
In the nude scene done by then 21-year-old Kate Winslet in Titanic with co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet expresses her regret in filming the movie clip as she wishes she didn’t show much skin.
The Acclaimed Titanic Movie
Known by many as a widely recognized cinematic masterpiece, Titanic bases its story on the RMS Titanic ship that sunk due to an iceberg collision in 1912. With a death count that exceeded 1,000, the vessel’s sinking is one of the deadliest cruise ships. Meanwhile, the romantic relationship between the main characters, Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, who have fallen in love despite the class differences, is purely fictional.

It’s been over 20 years since the release of the esteemed and iconic movie Titanic. Released on December 19, 1997, and directed by James Cameron, its success is evident in its 11 Oscars awards, equal to the numerous wins of Ben-Hur and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Gaining more than $2 billion in total, Titanic remains to be one of the top-grossing films.
Apart from that, the movie Titanic also became a huge factor in skyrocketing the fame of its lead roles. Leonardo DiCaprio, who played Jack Dawson in the film, gained much recognition after his starring role in Titanic. He went on to act in numerous mega-hits such as Inception, The Aviator, Catch Me If You Can, The Revenant, and Shutter Island while receiving many award nominations and wins for his excellent acting.
Meanwhile, Kate Winslet, who competed with acclaimed actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Claire Danes for Rose DeWitt Bukater’s role, earned many Academy Award wins and nominations for her acting in Titanic and other films, such as The Reader. Although Kate Winslet earned an Academy Award nomination for her role as Rose Bukater, she reveals that she continues to be regretful of one particular scene. (Source: Hollywood Reporter)
