Kate Winslet Says Her Fame Post-’Titanic’ Made Life ‘Quite Unpleasant’

Kate Winslet admitted that the level of fame she rose to following the release of James Cameron’s ‘Titanic’ made her life ‘horrible’ and ‘unpleasant’

Titanic sailed to the top of the box office in its opening weekend, where it remained for 15 weeks, becoming at one point the highest-grossing film of all time. After Titanic, Winslet went on to star in a slew of films on a comparatively smaller scale, like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Finding Neverland, The Holiday and The Reader, among many others. She added: “I think it probably stems from having been subjected to the most awful scrutiny and judgment, and actually, I would go so far as to say bullying, from mainstream media when I was in my 20s.” Winslet noted that thanks to the #MeToo movement, the culture of the industry has begun to change for the better and that “young actresses now” are “unafraid.”
