Kate Winslet ‘instantly clicked’ with long term pal Leonardo DiCaprio

BAFTAS: Kate Winslet makes emotional speech after best actress win

It has been 25 years since they met and starred together in the blockbuster smash hit Titanic, but the instant bond they framed on set led Kate Wisnlet and Leonardo DiCaprio to become lifelong friends.

The two stars–who were both in their early 20s when the film was released–went on to become great friends who would also co-star again in future projects.

They once again worked together in 2008’s Revolutionary Road, which didn’t smash the same box office records as their 1997 project.

To date, it is still in the top five highest-grossing movies of all time, earning over $2 billion in worldwide box offices. It was only beaten by 2009’s Avatar, 2019’s Avengers: Endgame and 2022’s Avatar: The Way of Water.

Now, 25 years later, Winslet has reflected on their first meeting and connection in a special featurette on the new 4K ultra film release.

“We did click immediately, right away,” she recalls in the special. “…And I remember thinking, ‘Oh, this is gonna be fun. We’re definitely gonna get along.’ And we just really did. We just really did.”

“We connected on so many levels,” she later added.

She also shared that she enjoyed looking back on the memories and the time they had together.

“Once I started working with Leo, we were able to kind of find our own rhythm,” she said. “And it’s amazing to kind of look back and think about it all over again.”

Their connection and chemistry played out on screen and helped propel the movie to 14 Oscar nominations, including Best Lead Actress for Winslet.

While she did not win, the movie earned 11 wins including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Song for Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On.

Though neither she nor Di Caprio won an Oscar for the Titanic, both did go on to eventually get coveted trophies.

Winslet won Best Actress in 2009 for The Reader, while Di Caprio was awarded Best Actor in 2016 for The Revenant.
