(Newser) – With Titanic set to be re-released in 3D, Kate Winslet still appreciates how the film made her an international star. But Titanic's signature song, Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On"? Not so much. "I do feel like throwing up" when hearing it, Winslet tells MTV. "Bless you, Celine, but it does rather haunt me."

"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." See the full interview here, including her take on the jokes she endures "every time" she steps on a boat. (Read more Titanic stories.)
