This Photo Will Ruin Your Childhood Memory Of Titanic

You’ve done it again, Reddit! The forum has been our way of finding out movie secrets from other eagle-eyed viewers, and for the most part, it’s a fun discovery. After all, we weren’t too broken up to discover that Michael Bay reused the same footage from Pearl Harbor for Transformers. But this… this is just cruel.

Redditor Dakshesh posted this photo to a thread titled “The awkward moment when you find out Titanic was filmed in a plastic pool, and your whole life is an illusion.” Now, at first glance, it would appear that Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio shot their famous “I’ll never let go” scene in an inflatable pool. If you’re taking it at face value, it seems as if James Cameron‘s epic movie took place in the kind of contraption you’d see in someone’s front yard. Could this be true?

Probably not. It’s not entirely clear how many scenes were shot in this tiny tub, if any at all. Several Redditors say that this was actually just a “holding tub” for in-between scenes to keep the actors’ body temperature used to the warmish water in the big tank where they actually filmed the “freezing to death” scenes in the Atlantic.[tagbox tag="Reddit"]

Still, it takes a movie known for its large-scale filmmaking and really shrinks it down. And they have a sense of humor about it. My favorite comment comes from ProbablyHittingOnYou: At least that diamond will be easy to find, then.

What’s most interesting about this thread is the entire side debate over if Rose were a see-you-next-Tuesday for staying on her floating dresser while Jack shuddered and sank to his death. Really, it’s fascinating to see how much hatred Redditors have internalized against Kate Winslet in the last fourteen years.

      • Iris

        Exactly, right? The picture doesn’t bother me one bit.

    • shana

      Cameron did use actual super cold water for most of the scenes. He wanted it to be realistic.

      I think these were the hot tubs they would sit in between takes, because the water in the huge tank was freezing cold.

      I saw many shows that featured behind-the-scenes footage of Titanic. They definitely didn’t shoot it in a tub that size.

    • What?

      Hatred against Kate Winslet? You just stated that they were discussing Rose…the CHARacter o_O

      I have a great picture I took from the set of the new Avatar movie (I think?? I took it a month ago so whatever he’s filming now) Michael Bay had a bunch of the Titanic stuff on one of the stages at the studio, including the car, the life boat from the sinking scene, and what I think was the ship from the shots of the entire ship on the ocean. Which was basically 8 feet long or so – TINY! I was so amused by it, I actually thought that’s what this post was going to be about, since it was so easy to sneak into the area where you can look down into the stage. It’s so little, it totally ruined the whole “enormous Titanic ship” aspect of the movies for me

      I read somewhere that when they filmed the lower class hallway scene where water fills up to their heads they had to be in the water for a long long time. So they just had to pee in the water :s Gawd.
