How much do YOU want these two pals to get together?
We know that two-time co-stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio absolutely adore one another, and we’ve been waiting for years to see the two revisit their epic Titanic love story in real life. But is it about to finally happen?If the reports are true, the Oscar-winning actress, 34, has been leaning on her old co-star for support now that her marriage to husband of seven years, director Sam Mendes, 44, is over.
“Leo and Kate have been like brother and sister since they starred in “Titanic” together. And since Kate’s marriage started to go south, around the time they were filming ‘Revolutionary Road’, they’ve got closer again,” a source tells the UK’s The Sun. “Kate has always really adored Leo and feels like she can tell him anything.”
The same is true for Leonardo, 35. “Kate Winslet is one of my dearest friends,” he told Esquire. “We have the ultimate trust in each other and the best intentions for what we want to do. I knew Kate before Sam even met her.”
He added of their sex scene in Road, “When the scene was about to start, Kate said, in front of the crew, “Wait, wait, this is totally weird.” She turned to both Sam and I and said, “Are you guys okay?” We both looked at each other and said, Yeah, we’re totally fine. She said, “It’s even weirder that you’re both totally fine.”
Very weird indeed, Leo.
For her part, Kate told Entertainment Weekly, “”I hadn’t realized how much my chemistry with [Leo] since `Titanic’ would still stick. It’s great to discover we can just slip right into it, like muscle memory.”
And who can forget her gushing 2008 Oscar acceptance speech, where the British Rose sobbed, “Leo, I’m so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love you and how much I’ve loved your for thirteen years!”
Do you think it will finally happen for Kate and Leo?
