(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"?

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."
