Kate Winslet: Fame after ‘Titanic’ was terrifying

Kate Winslet has forever tied her name to the award-winning film ‘Titanic,’ in which she starred when she was 22 years old.

In a recent interview with ‘Porter’ magazine, the British Oscar-winning actress revealed the negative effects of fame following the success of James Cameron’s film. Winslet was already famous for her role in the 1995 film ‘Sense and Sensibility,’ which earned her the first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. However, things were completely different with the Titanic saga.

“I felt like I had to look a certain way or be a certain thing because the media scrutiny was so intense at that time, that my life was not at all pleasant,” said Winslet. “Journalists always said, ‘After Titanic, you could have done anything, and instead you chose to do all these little things’… and I said yes, that’s exactly what I chose! Because being famous is terrifying.”


In fact, after 1997 and until the great success of ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,’ Winslet participated in small film projects. In no way, of course, does she consider this film a burden.
