Leonardo DiCaprio Finally Addressed The 'Titanic' Door Scene... Sort Of
THERE WAS ROOM FOR BOTH.
Like an iceberg popping out of nowhere, the most critical cultural conversation has once again risen to torture us all.
In a recent interview with MTV news, Leonardo DiCaprio was quizzed on the most controversial movie moment perhaps of all time. Was there room on that door at the end of 'Titanic'?
For the first time ever, DiCaprio spoke out with a resounding: "No comment".
Sitting alongside his 'Once Upon A Time in Hollywood' costars Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt, DiCaprio refused to answer questions about the dynamics of the floating door that saved Rose DeWitt Bukater -- but because she wouldn't shove over like HALF AN INCH -- sent Jack Dawson to his watery grave (sorry for the spoilers of a film that came out in 1997).
Robbie admitted she remembered bawling her eyes out when she saw the film -- also a terrifying fact to consider: she was probably not even eight when the movie came out.
"That is the biggest controversy, I think, in modern cinema," Robbie said to DiCaprio while Pitt needled the actor asking, "Could you have squeezed in there?"
Once again, DiCaprio's only response was, "No comment, Brad."
The debate as to if Jack could have fit on the door has raged for years -- with DiCaprio's 'Titanic' costar Kate Winslet going on record to say she thinks there WAS room.
"He just should have tried harder to get on that door," she told Stephen Colbert in 2017.
Meanwhile, the film's director James Cameron went on record to say, "Look, it’s very, very simple: You read page 147 of the script and it says, 'Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive'. It’s that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want."
He then went on to claim the 'Mythbusters' episode which proved there was room for Rose AND Jack was 'full of shit'.
Back in the interview with DiCaprio and Robbie tried once again to get his thoughts on the controversy. Asking if at any point he or the crew asked for the enormous, room-for-two door to be made smaller he simply shot back:
"Like I said, I have no comment."
