If you ever see Kate Winslet in a bar, do should not, under any circumstances, put My Heart Will Go On on the jukebox. She will not find it cute, and she will puke all over your dumb face.
In a recent interview with MTV News about Titanic‘s upcoming 3D re-release, they asked her how she feels when she hears that famous Celine Dion song now. Kate minced no words in her reply:
Like throwing up. No, I shouldn’t say that. No, actually, I do feel like throwing up…I wish I could say, ‘Oh listen, everybody! It’s the Celine Dion song!’ But I don’t. I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll…It’s thrilling for people to surprise me with the Celine Dion song.
Wow, that does sound annoying. Tell us more, Kate Winslet!
I did a talk show recently in Italy and they actually had a live pianist who started gently playing the theme song. I was not even gently, rather severely, urged to go and sing it as though I had in fact sung it myself in the first place. It was like, ‘No! I’m not going to do that.’ They’re like, ‘Oh no, come on it will be funny.’ No, it won’t be funny. At all. And I’m not going to.
That sounds super duper annoying. I mean, I hate it when that song comes on, and people don’t even play it for me. In fact, it’s probably been several years since I’ve heard it, and I’m still annoyed by the mere memory. Kate Winslet lives in a hell of James Cameron‘s creation.
Then again, the film paid her lots of money and was great for her career, so maybe she should shut up about that song being terrible? No, no she should not. Unless there’s some kind of “no shit-talking the song” clause in her Titanic contract, she should go on shit-talking it indefinitely, because anything that might convince people to stop playing it (on the radio, on TV, in a boat, with a goat) can only be a positive development.
