Kate Winslet Finally Tells the Truth About Her Relationship With Leo DiCaprio

We all want to believe that something magical was going on between Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio during the filming of Titanic because of that scene. You just cannot nuzzle up to another person on the bow of a boat and not feel the love. She may have said I'm flying but we all know she was saying I'm falling in love. The trust! The romance! The danger! The scene had all the makings of the perfect on-screen love affair that should be taken off-screen as well. Never mind the fact that Leo was so baby faced and Kate seemed way too mature for him. We wanted love forever and always.

They sort of granted our wish when they reunited for the film Revolutionary Road. And when Kate married Ned Rocknroll two years ago, Leo was the man who gave her away at the altar. What kind of relationship do these two really have? Kate has finally come clean.


And our dreams have been crushed. Kate told Marie Claire UK:

I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing. It's so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did. He always saw me as one of the boys; I've never really been a girly-girl. We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy bloody hours and it was a shock to the system.

The love Jack and Rose had was only for Jack and Rose. They were so convincing. I'm still not certain how any celebrity can be in a movie with someone, have incredible chemistry with them, make out with them, go through all the motions people do when they are in love, and not fall in love. It's sort of chemically impossible to not get your feelings all involved, isn't it? So while Kate says there was never any romantic thing, she's just saying that she and Leo didn't kiss or hold hands or hug or stare lovingly into each other's eyes off-camera -- they did it all for us.

Thank you, Kate. Thank you, Leo.

Are you surprised that nothing romantic happened between these two off-camera?
