Kate Winslet recalls shooting the iconic scene in Titanic

Titanic is one romantic classic that has aged well and gets fresh with every revisit. The leading lady of the film, Kate Winslet, who played Rose DeWitt Bukater, recalled shooting the iconic 'I'm Flying' scene with Leonardo Dicaprio's character Jack Dawson.

Though the scene needs no effort to be recalled, this is the scene in which Jack takes Rose to the bow of the ship with their hands wide open, followed by a kiss.

Calling DiCaprio a "romancer,"  Kate Winslet said, according to The Hollywood Reporter, that she had to do a make-up check regularly as they kept doing the kiss that got them a lot of pale makeup. She added that Leo's makeup would come off of him after every take.

While that was the fun part, the "nightmare" part of the shoot, as said by Kate, was the lighting issues. To add to the woes, Kate said more takes were taken as she would hurt her knee on the fence every time, and the sunset, about which director James Cameron was particular, kept changing where they were.

Taking pride in being part of the historic project, Kate said, ""Whole other generations of people are discovering the film or seeing it for the first time, and there's something extraordinary about that."
