No matter how hard Kate Winslet tries, she can’t seem to get away from “Titanic.” The second-highest grossing movie of all-time arrives on Blu-ray this week, putting Winslet’s breakout role back at front and center once again. For the Oscar-winning actress, that might not be the best thing.
“I’m sure I wasn’t really a very good actress,” Winslet told USA Today when “Titanic” was released in 3D earlier this year. “Seriously, we are talking about something that happened 15 years ago. It is a very long time ago. I’ve learned so much, and I’ve changed as a person so much since then. It is really quite weird. Can you imagine anything stranger? It’s going to be like, famous all over again, ‘Titanic’ all over again!”
As part of the Blu-ray release, Paramount has unveiled Winslet’s screen test from “Titanic,” which pairs her with “Law & Order” actor Jeremy Sisto in the part of Jack Dawson. (Leonardo DiCaprio famously landed the role and became an international superstar.)
