  You Probably Missed This Heartbreaking Detail In ‘Titanic’ Titanic was a historical homage to the original vessel and the passengers on board, but we never noticed this beautiful detail in the film before now.One element that we adored about Titanic is that it was remarkably accurate—with its nods to the time in which it was set via perfected costumes and the set being an exact replica of the original vessel, we are hardly shocked that this little recently revealed easter egg is another historical note.

We remember certain actors by their unforgettable roles in iconic movies. But sometimes it doesn’t always work out. Titanic is one of the most famous movies of all-time, and Kate Winslet will forever be connected to Leonardo DiCaprio.

Oy. "I think he could have actually fitted on that bit of door," Kate Winslet , who starred as Rose Dawson in the 1997 classic " Titanic ," said on Monday's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

It was Cameron who insisted DiCaprio take the role.

"He just should have tried harder to get on that door, because I think we would have (fit)!" Winslet joked to Colbert, before the two recreated the famous scene on Colbert's desk (minus the frigid waters that Winslet said gave her hypothermia).

As for Jack's death, Cameron told Vanity Fair last week that it had to happen "because it says on page 147 (of the script) that Jack dies."
