'Titanic' Director Reveals Why Rose Didn't Make Room for Jack on the Door

Director James Cameron has finally answered the question many Titanic fans have been asking since the movie was released twenty years ago…why didn’t Rose (Kate Winslet) share the door with Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) while waiting for help in the freezing cold Atlantic Ocean?!

“The answer is very simple because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies. 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. But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die. Had he lived, the ending of the film would have been meaningless. . . . The film is about death and separation; he had to die. So whether it was that, or whether a smoke stack fell on him, he was going down. It’s called art, things happen for artistic reasons, not for physics reasons,” James told Vanity Fair.

James continued, “I was in the water with the piece of wood putting people on it for about two days getting it exactly buoyant enough so that it would support one person with full free-board, meaning that she wasn’t immersed at all in the 28 degree water so that she could survive the three hours it took until the rescue ship got there. [Jack] didn’t know that she was gonna get picked up by a lifeboat an hour later; he was dead anyway. And we very, very finely tuned it to be exactly what you see in the movie because I believed at the time, and still do, that that’s what it would have taken for one person to survive.”

Of course, Jack dies after freezing in the Atlantic Ocean while Rose survives.

Leonardo DiCaprio Almost Starred in 'Hocus Pocus' But Had to Turn It Down

Leonardo DiCaprio almost starred in beloved Halloween flick Hocus Pocus and now we’re getting the full details about his audition!

The award winning actor was around 18-years-old when he auditioned for the role but knew that he was committed to other films.

“The [casting] ladies called me up and they said, ‘We’re sending you an actor today but he’s not available but you’re going to fall in love with him but you can’t have him.’ I’m like, ‘Why are you teasing me?’ They were like, ‘You need to see this guy because he’ll inspire you and if nothing else, he’ll help you find the right guy to play Max.,’” director Kenny Ortega told EW.

He added, “And they send me in a young Leonardo DiCaprio, who I completely and absolutely fall in love with. He’s just the most sincere and most centered and a wild child at the same time. He was feeling awkward. He was like, ‘I just feel really bad being here because I’m up for two other movies and I really want them both and I don’t want to lead you on.’ I was like, ‘That’s okay, I was already warned.’”

The other movies ended up being This Boy’s Life and Eating Gilbert Grape.

“Obviously, he left and incredible things happened for that young man and to this day, but meeting him awakened me to the kind of spirit and fun and sincerity that I was looking for in an actor,” Kenny concluded.
