(Newser) – Kate Winslet has finally addressed a concern some Titanic fans have probably had for years: Why did her character, Rose, let Leonardo DiCaprio's character, Jack, die when there was clearly a door floating in the ocean that was large enough for both of them to ride to rescue? "I think he could have actually fitted on that bit of door," Winslet admitted to Jimmy Kimmel Monday night, per Us.

She added that in real life "people are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space. ... It's been 20 years and people still get such a kick out of it. It's really quite endearing. And we do laugh about it. ... People still get so overwhelmed with the Jack and Rose thing." (But for those of you hoping for a real-life romance, well ... )
