Kate Winslet has finally answered the age-old question of whether or not Jack could fit the door with Rose in Titanic.
During a recent appearance on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, Winslet, who starred in the 1997 film alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, weighed in on the controversy and broached the debate once and for all.
You heard it here, for the first time, yeah, he could have fit in, he could have fit in that door, but he wouldn’t have stayed afloat. It won’t happen, said Winslet, 47.
The actor’s response comes just days after the film’s director, James Cameron, shared his own insights into the scene, noting that he had conducted scientific experiments that proved Jack wouldn’t be able to get through the door.

During a 43 Minutes chat, Happy Sad Confused host Joshua Horowitz asked Winslet about the door debacle by providing a video of himself asking DiCaprio the same question several years ago.
“I have no comment,” the former Winslet star said in the video.
Horowitz then turned his attention to Winslet, asking her the same question about Jack’s fate if he had gone up the door with Rose.
I don’t know the king. “No,” said Winslet, laughing at the question, “that is the answer that I do not know the King.”
The actress took a moment before she thought about it and gave her a formal answer.
“All I can say is that I have a pretty good understanding of water and how it behaves, I really do,” said Winslet. “If you put two adults on a stand-up paddle board, it would instantly become very unstable, that’s for sure.”
The famous scene from the 1997 movie is one of the most controversial in cinema history
While Leonardo DiCaprio said ‘no comment’ when asked if Jack could have reached the door, Kate Winslet says she thought it was scientifically impossible
“I actually don’t think we would have survived if we had come through that door,” said Winslet. “I think it would have fit, but it would have tilted and it wouldn’t have been a sustainable idea.”
Right after describing why she thought it wouldn’t work out, the “The Holiday” actress commented on the hate she received for her body and how critics would shame her during door discussions.
“And also, apparently, I was pretty fat,” Winslet joked.
Isn’t that terrible? Why were they mean to me? They were so mean. I wasn’t even a f**king fat guy.

“And apparently I was too fat,” said Winslet, jokingly offering another reason why Jack couldn’t make it to the door. Winslet faced physical shame for years
The 1997 film became one of the biggest hits of all time
Cameron, 68, and Winslet are currently promoting the new movie, “Avatar: The Way of Water,” which debuts Dec. 16 and grossed an estimated $134 million in its opening weekend.
Just days ago in another interview, Cameron revealed that he had conducted a scientific study to finally end the debate about whether Leonardo DiCaprio’s character could make it out alive.
The director told The Toronto Sun that he did a “forensic study” in hopes that he “wouldn’t have to deal with speculation anymore after 25 years.”
He said: ‘We did a scientific study to put all of this to rest and drive the stake into his heart once and for all. We’ve since done a thorough forensic analysis with the hypothermia expert who reproduced the raft from the movie and are going to do a little special on it which comes out in February.
Cameron revealed that he conducted a scientific study to finally end the debate over whether Leonardo DiCaprio’s character could make it out alive.
We took two stunt people who were the same body mass as Kate and Leo, put sensors all over and inside of them, put them in ice water, and tested them to see if they could survive through a variety of methods, and the answer was, there was no way they could both survive. . Only one can survive
“[Jack] need to die. It’s like Romeo and Juliet. It is a movie about love, sacrifice and mortality. Love is measured by sacrifice… Maybe in 25 years I won’t have to deal with this anymore.
The Door Debate became one of the biggest points of contention in film history.
In 2008, the Mythbusters created an episode that described a variety of ways Jack could have been saved. But Cameron didn’t buy into their theories.
Well, let’s really play that: You’re Jack, you’re in the 28-degree water, your brain starts hypothermia, Mythbusters now tell you to take off your life jacket, take it off, swim under this thing, attach it somehow so it doesn’t wash off after just a couple of minutes.”

Titanic is the third highest-grossing film of all time when adjusted for inflation.
Cameron had two of the top three spots with his first movie, “Avatar,” coming in at number one, grossing over $2.9 billion.
