Kate Winslet: 'I'm thinner since Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio's fatter'

Monday, Apr 2 2012

Kate Winslet has joked that much has changed about her and Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio's appearance since its 1997 premiere.

The actress, who recently celebrated the film's 15th anniversary 3D re-release, said that the physical differences in both her and DiCaprio's younger selves are more than obvious upon re-watching the historical drama.

"We do look very different, we're older," Winslet explained during an interview on ITV's Daybreak. "Leo's 37, I'm 36 - we were 21 and 22 when we made that film. You know, he's fatter now - I'm thinner."

Winslet, who has expressed displeasure with her performance in Titanic, recently claimed that her children are the perfect age to enjoy the movie.

I always got thee vibe that Kate is much more into her friendship with Leo than vice versa....I always felt he just kind of tolerated her as the chatty needy fat girl who can't keep a man.

by Anonymousreply 204/02/2012

Is she thinner now than when she was in Titanic. I thought she had gained a good deal after the movie.

Okay, kind of like her now.

R6, what's so bad about what she said? Many people on DL have commented lately that Leo looks fat these days.

He is a big boy who now is approaching middle-age. Of course he's a bit overweight. She wouldn't get work if she weren't thin.

R20, James Cameron famously has a different wife now.

No, the woman with Cameron now is Suzy Amis. She played Lizzy, old Rose's granddaughter, in the film. Now she plays the Crypt-Keeper, but in everyday life.

That's not Sarah Connor on the right. James Cameron's current wife is Suzy Amis, who played Rose's granddaughter in the framing narrative in Titanic.

DL is a misogynist space, as this "frau" hatred makes clear. Imagine a comparable word with which to characterize gay men who bug you; imagine that word showing up over and over again in various threads, without a single objection; imagine how none of you would stand for it.

Your misogyny is juvenile, stupid, out-of-date, destructive of your own humanity, brutalizing to children, murderous, self-loathing, and wrong.

Stop it.

by Anonymousreply 2604/03/2012

What is it with her and the re-release of this movie? She has done nothing but trash talk everything about it.

Maybe because this time she isn't getting paid.

by Anonymousreply 2804/03/2012

I'm sorry, but it is perfectly normal for a 21-year-old guy to fill out as he grows older. Leo basically had a twink bod at that age, and now he has an average physique for someone in their mid/late 30s. Kate was ... well, let's just say she had childbearing hips. She's never been particularly thin (and doesn't seem to care), but yes, she's thinner today than 15 years ago.

by Anonymousreply 2904/03/2012

R29, he is becoming chubby. A leading male actor who is only in his late 30's is not supposed to be fat.

We saw Kate naked in Titanic and she wasn't fat. First of all she was playing the part of a rich girl...she would not have been skin and bones, as the poor people were.

by Anonymousreply 3304/03/2012

It really didn't take Marlon long before he was chubbie. It happens.

by Anonymousreply 3404/03/2012

She's insufferable, but at least she's admitting she's thin. She usually goes on and on about how she isn't going to try and be Hollywood's stereotypical skinny actress (all while starving herself) and she doesn't care what people think about her weight. She acts like she never lost her extra weight and still weighs the same as she did in Titantic. When we all know she lost at least 25 - 30 lbs

She should just admit her career really didn't take off in Hollywood until she lost the weight and that she starves herself so she can keep getting great roles

by Anonymousreply 3504/03/2012

I have a feeling if the situations were reversed and he said she was fatter and he was skinnier now there would be an international incident

Kate rules. Actually she and Cameron are the only two who improved with age. And the actress who played her mother looks like she stepped away from the plastic surgery. Finally.

by Anonymousreply 4504/03/2012

True, R36. It would have been considered sexist and misogynist if Leo had called Kate a porker.

by Anonymousreply 4604/03/2012

R45, you mean Frances Fisher? I think she looks way better now. Sure, she's had work, but she has more meat on her face which is good. The emaciated look is really bad on old faces. A little plumpness goes a long way to make an older person look better.

Incidentally, Frances Fisher used to be involved with Clint Eastwood. They lived together and had a child. If I remember right, she came home one day and found the locks had been changed. She had to move on the spot, along with suddenly losing her relationship.

r47 - Wasn't it Sondra Locke he locked out? I think he & FF are on good terms now, though FF supposedly found out they'd broken up when she saw published photos of him kissing the woman he's now married to.

r46 - James Cameron did at the time. Didn't he refer to her as "Kate Weighs-a-lot?" What a nice guy.

R36, R46, the issue of Kate's weight has been a "story" in the tabloid press for years now. Leo's podginess has never been an issue, however.

What r50 said. Kate has been publicly hounded about her weight for years. Actresses are bullied into starving themselves while male actors like Leo get old and fat without it being held against them. Kate was acknowledging this but in a cheeky fashion.

She's definitely thinner now. During Titanic she was a fat ass!

by Anonymousreply 6504/05/2012

Agree with r58. She was only overweight by warped modern standards (if you can't see a female's ribs, she's fat. if you can still see her when she turns sidewise, she's obese!) Marilyn Monroe would have never existed today. As for whether or not Leo is a fat sow, well, let's just say that women get called "fat sows" for much, much less.

by Anonymousreply 6604/05/2012

Most men Leo's age are much heavier, as are a lot of other actors.

R61 - she looks good with a little weight. Heavier than she is now, but lighter than what she was at the Titanic premiere.

HAHAHA that's hilarious! Leo IS fatter and she IS thinner. Leo got big and meaty and his head looks huge! He's still cute but she speaks the truth.

Wonder how Leo went downhill so quickly over the past 6 years?

In 2006 he was pretty muscular and toned for "The Departed".

by Anonymousreply 7004/05/2012

6 years is a long time.

by Anonymousreply 7104/05/2012

Most A-list stars in their 30's still have great bodies, so it's odd that Leo doesn't. Brad Pitt had washboard abs when he was Leo's age, and had an amazing body in Troy when he was even older than Leo is now.

by Anonymousreply 7204/05/2012

Oh sure, r2 and r63, Kate can't keep a man! Her life has failed and she is desperate! She hasn't achieved anything and is so needy she grasps for assurances from a man with an amibiguous sexuality! Whereas Leo is well-known for his successful, loving marriage. Can't believe gay men can write such shit about women.

I doubt that if Kate was so needy for Leo's approval she would even have made that joke. Because, it's a joke. Yes, an ironic, sarcastic joke. But not the kind of comment that would be made by someone who wasn't fully confident either about her own body or her relationship with the person she was talking about.

R67, which actors Leo's age are much heavier?

by Anonymousreply 7304/05/2012

Leo is not aging well, he looks pudgy and bloated. Most men lose their looks by about 25.

by Anonymousreply 7404/06/2012

Most people do not loose their looks by 25. Or even 35.

Rebecca Hall is thin too, but she's also very bright.

by Anonymousreply 7604/06/2012

I wonder how Leo feels when he watches Titanic now that he's fat with that big ol' meat and potato head. It must be depressing. The good thing is, is that he didn't seem to ever want that teen idol status they were forcing on him. He's a pretty damn good actor and I appreciate that he knew his looks would fade and that he would have to rely on his acting chops. Kate is also an amazing actress and I'm glad she's thin and looks good. While men can walk around all day long with a big fat gut, society is unfair to women even if they look great.

by Anonymousreply 7704/08/2012

I saw a clip of 'Titanic' on t.v. today and was reminded of how beautiful and angelic Leo looked in that movie. He was at the peak of his beauty.

He definitely doesn't look like that now.

by Anonymousreply 7804/08/2012

Leo sure was at his peak. Titanic and Romeo and Juliet. He was a beautiful boy. He probably cringes having to watch himself in these old movies. That's what probably drove him to drinking.

Leonardo used to look angelic and was so, so pretty. And then seemingly overnight, he suddenly turned into my Uncle Vito. It's weird how fast his looks changed.

It was always apparent that his face would turn out the way it has - just look at the shape of his head/skull, that was always going to end up being a big, fat face.
