“Leo’s friendship is a major thing in my life. It’s a big relationship. I’ve known him almost twice as long as I’ve know Sam [her husband], but he’s never been a boyfriend, which makes it completely uncomplicated and very special. We met when we were very young and did a this incredible film [Titanic], which changed both our lives, but the best thing to come out of it was this friendship. We have grown up together.” - Kate
“I was doing press for Eternal Sunshine, and we had a couple of dinner parties. And Leo came to one of those dinners, and that was so fantastic because I haven’t actually seen him for six years. We’ve spoken on the phone, but we haven’t sat down and gone, ‘Oh my God! Do you remember what that was like?’ And then, at one point, he turned around to me and said, ‘Sweetie, why did we get so fat?’ I said, ‘I don’t know!’ And he said, ‘Well, I know what I was doing. I just didn’t give a fuck!’”- Kate Winslet
“He’s brilliant. At first, I thought, ‘Oh, is he going to be Hollywood stud-like?’ But he’s a really kind, wonderful person. He said to me one day early in the making of the movie, ‘You know, I was kind of worried about you’. He thought I was going to be a perfect skin, which I am certainly not. It didn’t take long for Leo to crack and see who I really am, and we became very close. but, I must say, he is absolutely gorgeous.” - Kate Winslet.
“We were both just kids of 21 when we made Titanic all those years ago. But, even then, Kate seemed more mature and worldly than I was. I cried on her shoulder many times as we found the demands of filming under the director James Cameron so tough. We have never not been friends since that time. I speak to her all the time. But friends – not lovers.” - Leonardo DiCaprio.
It was one of the more emotionally painful movies. It was depressing, making this film, I have to say. As great as it was to work with Kate, I was happy to get out of…not happy to wrap the film, but happy to stop arguing with my wife for months straight, confined in a tiny suburban house.
