Leo & Kate Recreate Famous 'Titanic' Moment


From an article about Revolutionary Road...

It's 3 a.m. on a crowd-clogged New York City street and Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet have spent the past few hours trying to fall in love.  So far, they've come up just short of true romance.  The point of diminishing returns is drawing dangerously close on the set of Revolutionary Road, where the Titanic stars are struggling with an important party scene in which they must meet, connect, and set themselves up for a life of misery together.

In an effort to stoke passions, director Sam Mendes (Jarhead), Winslet's real-life husband, has been cranking up the volume on a Dean Martin ballad each time they launch into the scene.  After 13 takes, with patience running on fumes, someone cues up the music again--only this time a practical joker has replaced Dino with Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," the syrupy but strangely stirring anthem from Titanic.  Suddenly, it's as if someone pressed the pause button.  Everyone freezes for a good five seconds.  And then, without saying a word, DiCaprio wraps Winslet in his arms, she spreads hers, and they re-create the iconic hood-ornament image that was wallpapered all over the planet 11 years ago.  The 300 or so extras and onlookers explode into applause, juicing the stars enough to nail the scene on the next take. 

Here's to hoping they'll include this outtake on the DVD!..doubtful since Mendes is srs bsns.
