Leonardo DiCaprio had a very telling reaction to being asked if his Titanic character Jack Dawson could’ve fit on the floating door with Kate Winslet’s Rose DeWitt Bukater.
Over 20 years since James Cameron’s Titanic was theatrically released, the most controversial question in cinematic history still stands. Was there enough space on the floating door for Jack and Rose? Hopeful romantics are adamant that he could have and could possibly go on to live a happy ending with Rose.
Now, the man who played Jack himself was asked about the matter in an interview with MTV News. The actor was promoting his new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. While DiCaprio answered “I have no comment.” to the questions, his facial reactions were telling while his co-stars chuckled.
“Oh my gosh, I thought it. I remember bawling my eyes out when I was a [little] girl,” Robbie quickly jumped in on the question.
Pitt, sitting between them says, “That is funny. Well, I’m going to go back and look now, shoot.” The 55-year-old actor then turns to DiCaprio and slyly asks, “Could you have squeezed there? You could’ve, couldn’t you?”
Robbie even asked the actor if he could’ve questioned how big the door was and if he had tried asking for a smaller one.
As they all laugh, DiCaprio, with his arms crossed, replies: “No comment. Like, I said, I have no comment.”
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will be released in US theaters on July 26, 2019.
