“Titanic” lovers DiCaprio, Winslet renunite for “Revolutionary Road”August 25th, 2008 - 10:16 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 25 (IANS) Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are to pair again in a new film, more than a decade after they starred in James Cameroon’s 1997 hit “Titanic”.The Hollywood actors shot to fame for their role in the film and have teamed up again for the drama “Revolutionary Road”, directed by Winslets’s director-husband Sam Mendes, reported dailymail.co.uk.
“I had not realised how much my chemistry with him (DiCaprio) since ‘Titanic’ would still stick,” said Winslet of the highly anticipated reunion.
She also admitted that while the chemistry came easy between them, shooting for the love scenes was awkward.
“I just kept saying that this is too weird. Leo was like, ‘Oh, get over with it and I am going’ while I said, ‘Yeah, but a little reminder, you are my best friend and he (Mendes) is my husband. So this is a bit weird’,” she added.
The film details the disintegration of the couple’s marriage as life fails to live up to the much-promised American Dream.
