Kate Winslet is an Oscar-winning actress with countless films under her belt, yet she can't seem to escape one particular scene. It's hard to forget how timeless the thenyear-old actress looked when she posed with the Heart of the Ocean necklace and nothing else in 's "Titanic. For Winslet, her fans won't let her forget it.
The Oscar-winning actress, who stripped down for an intimate moment in the blockbuster, during which her co-star and good pal Leonardo DiCaprio's character, Jack Dawson, draws a picture of her character Rose DeWitt Bukater's naked body, admits she finds some parts of the movie "very uncomfortable" to watch and refuses to sign photographs or recreations of the original drawing. The year-old beauty told Yahoo! Movies: "I don't sign that [picture].
Twenty years after Titanic was released in cinemas — where new reels were required due to the then unrivalled popularity of the film — we pick out one of the most amusing anecdotes from the set. And we remain enchanted by the love story that at times appears people weirdly hope, don't they to trickle into reality. For its two stars, Kate and Leo, the film was an "experiment".
She is particularly known for her work in period dramas and tragedies, and is often drawn to portraying troubled women. Winslet is the recipient of several accoladesincluding three British Academy Film Awardsand is among the few performers to have won Academy, Emmy, and Grammy Awards. Her first screen appearance, at the age of 15, was in the British television series Dark Season
The drawing was done by the film's director James Cameron. She asks Jack to sketch her naked on her state room wearing just a necklace known as the Heart of the Ocean. Cameron, a skilled artist was responsible for the drawing seen on screen which shows Winslet topless and reclining on a couch.
It seems like only yesterday we watched a nude Kate Winslet don the stunning Heart of the Ocean necklace for Leonardo DiCaprio as he memorably sketched her in Titanic. Memories, memories. Even though the epic romantic blockbuster was filmed 17 gasp!
Seventeen years have passed since Jack drew that naked portrait of Rose in "Titanic," but the scene still haunts Kate Winslet. Last month, while at the Los Angeles premiere of "Divergent," a fan handed Winslet a copy of the nude portrait to sign while on the red carpet. The image was a version of the one Jack Leonardo DiCaprio draws for Rose, who asks him to draw her "like one of his French girls" wearing nothing but the Heart of the Ocean necklace, in the blockbuster film.
Titanicthe greatest film ever made, may be twenty years old, but the bond between its two leads is as strong as ever. In The Mountain Between UsWinslet and Idris Elba play sexy strangers stranded on a snowy peak after a plane crash, and unlike some simulated disaster movies, it was shot in the actual cold. Since DiCaprio had to brave some pretty harsh conditions for his role in 's The Revenanthe knew what to warn Winslet about.
Mum-of-three Kate, who stripped naked for certain scenes on the ill-fated ship, said she finds it hard to believe that the film is now 20 years old. Instead twice-divorced Kate said that she and Leonardo had developed a deep friendship which had lasted to this day. We really never did.
