Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater are one of the all-time greatest couples ever to appear on the big screen. Winslet and DiCaprio ensured there wouldn’t be many love stories seen on film that managed to trigger that many tears such as the iconic romance between a princess and a pauper, locked in space and time for just a several days in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
What was a great on-screen chemistry continued to flourish as a great friendship in the two decades after Titanic broke all records that were there to be broken. Kate and Leo never had anything but the good things to say to one another: according to DiCaprio, Winslet is the “best actress of her generation”.
This friendship has always remained a hot topic for fans worldwide, and expectations were high that sooner or later their relationship would grow into something more than friendship.
But Winslet has revealed that they have always been and remain to this day – best of friends.

Kate said that nothing ever happened between the two of them because “there was never any romantic thing”
Leo apparently never saw her as an object of romantic affection:
“He always saw me as one of the boys.”
She added that she understands why everyone would like something to have happened:
“It’s so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did.”
“We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy long hours and it was a shock to the system.”
