KATE WINSLET STATED

After Titanic, the actress and James Cameron have reconnected. During a news conference, Kate said the following regarding the same: "Jim has always created strong female characters for his female readers—characters who lead with their hearts, their honesty, their truth, and their own power. They possess admirable physical strength, so to be a part of that and included was just so flattering. Jim does not put up with fools, so I knew he was asking me because he knew I would be too damned stupid not to respond, "Oh, you see that in me? Guess what? I'm going to demonstrate to you that I am capable of doing just that. Naturally, he anticipated nothing less. I was therefore ecstatic to be asked."
