In a recent interview promoting his new movie, “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” Leonardo DiCaprio was asked about a controversial topic from his past – the “Titanic” door scene.
In the 1997 film, DiCaprio’s character, Jack, freezes in the ocean instead of climbing onto a floating door that saved Rose, played by Kate Winslet.
MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz posed the question to DiCaprio in front of his “Hollywood” co-stars Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt.
Robbie admitted that she had also been plagued by the same question since seeing “Titanic” as a girl.
“Oh my gosh, I thought it. I remember bawling my eyes out when I was a girl,” she said. However, DiCaprio refused to comment on the matter, simply stating, “I have no comment.”
Pitt then decided to join in on the teasing, asking DiCaprio if he could have fit on the door. “Could you, could you have squeezed in there? You could’ve, couldn’t you?” Pitt asked.
DiCaprio’s response was the same: “No comment.” Robbie also had questions, asking if DiCaprio had mentioned anything about the door size during filming. DiCaprio again responded with a simple “no comment.”
The door scene has been a topic of debate among “Titanic” fans for years, with many arguing that there was enough space for both Jack and Rose on the door.
“Titanic” director James Cameron joked about the scene in 2017, saying that Jack had to die “because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies. Very simple.”
However, he never provided a clear explanation for why two people couldn’t fit on the door.
