Marianne Dashwood is the first role I had ever seen Kate perform and it was love at first sight! To this day Sense & Sensibility is still one of my favorite films. I have added images to the gallery from this marvelous film!
Harper’s Bazaar knows that we sure love to ship the friendship of Kate and Leo … so they took us down memory lane!
If you’re sick of seeing Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio embracing on your newsfeed, now is the time to stop reading this article.
For the rest of you humans who can’t get enough of their love affair, here is an excellent throwback interview between Leo and Oprah in 2004. When an audience member asks DiCaprio about his favorite on-screen kiss, he tells her, “I’m just gonna go with Kate Winslet, good old classic.”
Oprah proceeds to show a clip of Winslet talking about working on Titanic with DiCaprio in 1998: “I was like probably how all the women in this audience are, about Leonardo DiCaprio. Initially, I thought, ‘Ugh, how am I gonna work with this beautiful man who’s such a brilliant actor?’ And I met him and he’s honestly so lovely and down-to-earth and normal and so good at what he does.”
DiCaprio’s response? “That’s my girl.”
He continues: “I feel the same way about her. If it wasn’t for her making that film, we would have been shrapnel at this point. It was just the toughest film we ever had to make and we were partners together.”
Watch for the full effect below.
I have added a ton more images of Kate at the Academy Awards on Sunday. Unfortunately, she didn’t win an award but she celebrated as her friend Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar. She looked stunning in a shiny black gown by Ralph Lauren.
Thank you to Claudia for sharing some of these pics with us.

Having put on an array of foreign accents in her award-winning career, British actress Kate Winslet says she really wants to play an English character, adding it would be “the ultimate challenge”.
The “Titanic” star has pretended to be American, Australian, Polish-Armenian and in her latest film, crime thriller “Triple 9”, a Russian-Israeli mafia boss.
“My M.O. (modus operandi) is just keep doing the unexpected. Although I do also keep trying to play an English person but that just doesn’t keep happening for me at the moment,” Winslet told Reuters in an interview.
“That would be the ultimate challenge and then I’d have no dialect coach at all. No one to have my back and I would be all by myself and probably more terrified than ever before. Wouldn’t that be novel?”
Winslet plays the bejewelled and designer-clad Irina Vlaslov in action-packed “Triple 9” about corrupt police and the criminal underworld — a role she said “felt very out of my comfort zone”.
“I don’t know anyone like this woman. I didn’t like her. I didn’t empathize with her. I wanted that challenge of playing a character who really felt like a character,” she said.
Winslet is in the running for an Academy Award for her portrayal in “Steve Jobs” of the late Apple co-founder’s colleague Joanna Hoffman.
She won an Oscar for “The Reader”, an Emmy Award for “Mildred Pierce”, a Best Spoken Word Album For Children Grammy for “Listen to the Storyteller”, meaning she is just missing a Tony Award to complete the “EGOT” acronym of all four major entertainment honours.
Asked if going to Broadway was next, Winslet said: “Well I suppose it probably is now. And that’s more because of my 12-year-old son Joe, who … is just obsessed with records.”
“So since he has learnt about this ‘EGOT’ thing, he’s like, ‘Mum you’ve gotta do it.'”
Winslet has backed her “Titanic” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio to win the best actor Oscar this year for “The Revenant”.
Both have been honoured this awards season, reuniting on the red carpet, much to the delight of “Titanic” fans, something that surprised Winslet.
“It’s crazy but it’s wonderful how people still get such a kick out of the (“Titanic” characters) Jack and Rose combo.”
Leonardo DiCaprio is giving some big-ups to one of his biggest supporters.
The Revenant actor, who walked away with the best actor prize at the BAFTA Awards Sunday, gave a shout-out to Titanic costar and longtime pal Kate Winslet for her unwavering support amid his triumphant awards-season run.
“My main groupie?” DiCaprio, 41, said with a laugh when reporters backstage dubbed Winslet just that, while asking about the outpouring of support he’s received from her and many others.
“It feels amazing,” he explained. “Honestly, I have a true love for cinema. I have, ever since I was a young teenager … So to have worked in this industry ever since I was 13 years old, having done 20-something movies and to be here now, and have it be for a film like this that we worked so very hard on, it feels amazing. It feels fantastic.”
He then added: “And Kate – that’s my homegirl!”
Winslet, 40, for her part, spoke out about DiCaprio at the BAFTAs – while answering one of life’s eternal questions: Could Jack have fit on that door with Rose as the Titanic sank in the background?
Winslet and DiCaprio just can’t escape the debate, even 19 years later, to the point where Winslet was even asked why there’s so much fuss about the iconic door while in the BAFTA Awards press room.
“Do you know what’s lovely? So much time has passed that it doesn’t matter what I say now,” Winslet said. “It’s not going to be a story that causes a huge furor. It’ll just be something that makes people laugh.”
“Thank God for time and the passing of it, that’s all I can say!”
Winslet, who took home the BAFTA award for best supporting actress for her role in Steve Jobs, says DiCaprio doesn’t feel quite the same about that piece of wood.
“He doesn’t care about the door,” Winslet says.
But even though Mythbusters took a scientific approach to settle the debate once and for all (determining that, yes, if they put Rose’s lifejacket under the door, they both could’ve survived), the controversy lives on.
