Kate Winslet has opened up about the chal­lenges of film­ing the icon­ic kiss­ing scene with Leonar­do DiCaprio in the block­buster movie “Titan­ic.” In a new inter­view, the acclaimed actress admit­ted that the much-cel­e­brat­ed moment was actu­al­ly a “night­mare” to shoot and “not all it’s cracked up to be.”

Winslet, who played the role of Rose in the 1997 film, recalled the dif­fi­cul­ties they faced dur­ing the scene where her char­ac­ter kiss­es Jack (DiCaprio) at the top of the ship. 

The actress revealed that their make­up kept rub­bing off on each oth­er, forc­ing them to con­stant­ly retouch between takes.

“Between takes, I was basi­cal­ly redo­ing our make­up,” Winslet said. “We kept doing this kiss, and I’ve got a lot of pale make­up on and I would have to do our make­up checks — on both of us, between takes — and I would end up look­ing as though I’d been suck­ing a caramel choco­late bar after each take because his make­up would come off on me.”

The 48-year-old actress also not­ed that the scene was chal­leng­ing to film due to the direc­tor’s metic­u­lous atten­tion to light­ing and the dif­fi­cul­ty of access­ing the spe­cif­ic part of the set they were work­ing on, which made it hard for the hair and make­up team to be there with them.

Despite the behind-the-scenes strug­gles, Winslet acknowl­edged that her co-star DiCaprio, 49, was “quite the romancer.” She joked, “No won­der every young girl in the world want­ed to be kissed by Leonar­do DiCaprio. It was not all it’s cracked up to be.”

The actress also addressed the rumors of a rift between her and “Titan­ic” direc­tor James Cameron, dis­miss­ing them as “stu­pid” and empha­siz­ing the strong rela­tion­ship they have. Winslet and Cameron have con­tin­ued to col­lab­o­rate, most recent­ly on the 2022 film “Avatar: The Way of Water.”

“Titan­ic” went on to become a glob­al phe­nom­e­non, earn­ing Winslet world­wide recog­ni­tion and fame, though she admit­ted it was a dif­fi­cult adjust­ment at the time. “I actu­al­ly felt a bit beat­en up by it, truth be told…I had a love­ly fam­i­ly, but all my fam­i­ly saw is ‘My God, Kate’s got work in a real­ly big film,’ ” she said.

The rev­e­la­tions about the behind-the-scenes chal­lenges of the icon­ic “Titan­ic” kiss­ing scene offer a fas­ci­nat­ing glimpse into the mak­ing of one of the most beloved and cel­e­brat­ed moments in cin­e­ma history.
