The stunning Kate Winslet, 36, first caught the attention of movie goers back in 1997 playing the role of ‘Rose’ in the blockbuster hit Titanic. Only 21-years old at the time, the Academy Award-winner lured her way into the hearts of millions.
Now 15 years later, the mother of two chatted with USA Today about the upcoming 3-D release of the James Cameron flick. “I do feel very excited about it, because I can tell that a whole new generation is going to get to experience the film.”
Her children, Mia, 11, and Joe, 8, have yet to see the top grossing film of its time. The proud mama shares, “It is very exciting that I can actually sit with them — together — and we can all watch it together in a movie theatre, and that is going to be quite amazing, actually.”
The Reader actress has only viewed 17 minutes of the 3-D version to date and found it to be extraordinary. But reliving a hit role from years ago can bring up mixed feelings. “I was literally like, ‘Oh my God, make it stop! Is that me? Oh my God, that’s me. Block my ears, somebody! Somebody club out my senses. Make it (expletive) stop!’”
“And Leo looks so young and so skinny!” she giggled.
