Kate Winslet Finally Admits She Let Leonardo DiCaprio Die at End of ‘Titanic’ (Video)

And the “Steve Jobs” star isn’t ashamed to say “it’s really great to win awards”

It took nearly two decades, but Kate Winslet has finally admitted that she let Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character, Jack, die at the end of “Titanic.”

“I agree!” Winslet told Jimmy Kimmel Monday when he confronted her on the issue. “I think he could have actually fitted on that bit of door.”

The 1997 film concluded with Rose (Winslet) and Jack trying to survive in the water after the Titanic sank in the Atlantic Ocean. Jack finds a door for Winslet to lay on, but floats in the water instead, until he freezes to death.

The question of why Rose never let Jack up on that door or why Jack didn’t attempt to climb up himself has bothered fans for years, and apparently Kimmel can be lumped in with that group, as well.

Still, fans were excited to see the former on-screen couple back together again when they hugged it out at the SAG Awards this past weekend, spawning “Never Let Go” jokes around the web.

“People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space, which, you know, at the end of the day, that’s so lovely, isn’t it?” Winslet added. “It’s been 20 years, and people still get such a kick out of it. It’s really quite endearing. And we do laugh about it. We were giggling about it last night. I was like, my god, can you actually believe that people just get so overwhelmed by the Jack and Rose thing.”

During her appearance on Kimmel, the actress also talked about how she was done saying she didn’t write a speech during an acceptance speech, and that it’s really, really great to win an award.

“It’s great to be nominated, it really really is, but it’s really great to win!” she said. “It’s so great. I’m so shameless, it’s so disgusting, isn’t it?”
