Getting answers. Leonardo DiCaprio finally spoke about that controversial door scene in his hit movie Titanic. In the film, the 44-year-old played Jack Dawson, and at the end of the film, he rested his arms on a floating wooden door in the ocean opposite of his love interest, Rose (Kate Winslet). However, the handsome hunk died from hypothermia since the majority of his body was in the North Atlantic Ocean, but Rose was able to survive since none of her body was in the water. Since then, fans have argued that there was definitely room for the two lovebirds.
On Monday, July 15, the Hollywood A-lister commented on the moment during an interview with MTV News while promoting his new movie called Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood. The interviewer asked, “OK, biggest movie controversy of all time: Could Jack have fit on that door at the end of Titanic?”
“Oh my gosh, I thought it,” Margot Robbie said to the The Aviator star. “I remember bawling my eyes out when I was a girl.” However, Leo didn’t care to elaborate. “I have no comment,” he replied.
But Brad definitely had something to say. “That’s funny,” he confessed. “Well, I’m gonna go back and look now, shoot. Certainly.”
“That is the biggest controversy, I think,” the blonde beauty, 29, added. Leo chimed in, saying, “Ever.”
The 55-year-old Fight Club alum teased his costar by asking, “Could you? Could you have squeezed in there? You could’ve, couldn’t you?” The California native laughed and said, “No comment, Brad.”
Margot was determined to get to the bottom of it all, though. “Did you mention it at the time? Were you like, ‘Should we make the door smaller?’” Leo replied, “Like I said, I have no comment.”
Meanwhile, Kate argued that Jack “could have actually fit on that bit of door” during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2016. James Cameron, who directed the film, spoke with Vanity Fair in 2017 about the heavily debated scene and why Rose went on to live a long time but Jack didn’t make it. “The answer is very simple because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies,” he said at the time. “Very simple. Obviously, it was an artistic choice. The thing was just big enough to hold her and not big enough to hold him … I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we’re having this discussion 20 years later.”
Well, it seems like this will be debated for eternity at this rate.
