Leonardo DiCaprio wants nothing to do with Jack’s famously controversial death scene in “Titanic.”
For decades, fans of James Cameron’s 1997 film have gone on and on about how DiCaprio’s character Jack could have fit on the large floating door with Kate Winslet’s character, Rose, instead of dying in the freezing cold water.
To this day, DiCaprio still wants nothing to do with the controversy.
29-year-old Robbie first chimed in when the question was brought up by saying “Oh my gosh, I thought it. I remember bawling my eyes out when I was a girl.”
“I have no comment,” 44-year-old DiCaprio said while laughing.
“That is the biggest controversy in modern cinema,” Margot agrees. “Ever,” DiCaprio clarifies.
“Could you, could you have squeezed in there? You could’ve, couldn’t you?” 55-year-old Pitt asked while teasing his co-star.
“No comment,” he continues saying as Pitt tries to get an answer out of him.
“Did you mention it at the time? Were you like, should we make the door smaller–,” Robbie tries before DiCaprio shoots her down.
“Like I said, I have no comment,” DiCaprio says with a smile.
Although Leo doesn’t want to talk about the great door debate, director James Cameron has no problem talking about it.
Cameron took part in BBC’s running series “Movies That Made Me”, where, of course, his 1997 blockbuster hit “Titanic” was brought up, and when the conversation turned to the door debate, Cameron got a little upset saying “I’ve never really seen it as a debate, it’s just stupid,” Cameron said, causing BBC Radio 1’s Film Critic Ali Plumb to laugh.
He added, “There’s no debate. But if you really want to unearth all the dumbass arguments associated with it.”
Cameron went on to say, “I mean, let’s go back to, could Romeo have been smart and not taken the poison? Yes. Could he have decided not to bring his little dagger just in case Juliet might stab herself with it? Yes, absolutely. It sort of misses the point.”
“It’s called,” Plumb said before Cameron finished “writing,” and the two laughed.
