Kate Winslet Says ‘My Heart Will Go On’ Makes Her Want to ‘Throw Up’

If you ever happen to meet ‘Titanic‘ star Kate Winslet in person, she has but one request: please don’t make her listen to Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On.’ The actress, now promoting the upcoming 3D re-release of the famous film, says the iconic song makes her “feel like throwing up.”

In the years since ‘Titanic’ opened in 1997, Winslet has had to endure hearing its theme every time she goes on a talk show, and if she walks into a bar with a pianist, they’ll inevitably play the tune to welcome her. Sometimes she’s even urged to sing it — something she says she never, ever does.

“Bless you, Celine, but it does rather haunt me,” the actress told MTV News.

And don’t get her started on boats:

“Honestly, I actually now get onto boats and say, ‘No jokes, OK? No jokes. Can we just move on from that? And if you have any jokes, let’s just get them out of the way right now. Thank you. Anyone? Jokes, jokes? OK, moving on.’ And then they still tell jokes.”

But all that aside, the Oscar-winner is grateful for the movie that rocketed her to fame, and she understands how much it’s beloved by movie-goers. And now that it’s being re-released in 3D on April 4, she says she’s looking forward to her kids seeing it for the first time.

She attended the London premiere of the reboot on March 27, and while most actresses would be reluctant to see themselves on the big screen in 3D — especially their much younger selves — the now 36-year-old beauty was perfectly fine with it.

“I think I look nicer now,” she said. “It’s really weird ’cause when you’re 21 you think, ‘Oh God, when I’m 36, oh God, that’s nearly 40 and I’ll look really old and wrinkly by then.’ And actually I quite like the way I look. I feel OK about myself these days.”
