Kate Winslet Initially Auditioned For Titanic With Matthew McConaughey

Kate Winslet Initially Auditioned For Titanic With Matthew McConaughey”

As Kate Winslet revealed during her visit to "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" last week, the very "all right, all right, all right" actor was the studio's top pick.

When The Reader actress was asked about the same, she said, "I auditioned with Matthew -isn't that weird?"

Colbert went on to hilariously grill Kate on why she told Jack she'd never let him go, but did!

Director James Cameron insisted on having Leonardo DiCaprio play opposite Winslet because he realized the pair's chemistry was undeniable. I auditioned with Matthew, which was completely fantastic.

This conversation turned into a full reenactment of this famous scene with Colbert in the role of Jack, and Kate reprising her famous role as Rose. In an interview where she was quizzed with a series of rapid-fire questions about the film, she said that she gave the audition with Matthew McConaughey.

Winslet revealed some new information about that infamously steamy hand-on-the-window sex scene. She added, "I did, yes, I did".

"I don't think it was scripted". It did get quite sweaty in the auto, but we were spritzed down with spray Evian bottles to make us look really like in the throes of... "I did get hypothermia". "I lied. I know".

But imagine Jack being played by Mathew McConaughey?

In retrospect, it all worked out as it should: Rose survived, Jack did not (though Colbert and Winslet tried to fix that during her appearance, too), and the ship went down to the briny deep.
