There have been rumours for years that director James Cameron was concerned about Kate Winslet’s figure in Titanic.
Now, the actress has hit back at claims that she was pressured into losing weight, by explaining that she was instead given a personal trainer to prepare for the role.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Kate said, “I’ll tell you what they did do, and actually I look back on this and they handled it quite well,” and went on to explain that they drafted in a trainer despite the fact she was swimming four times a week.
She added, “Clearly they were concerned about all of us being strong, being physically strong enough to get through ‘cause it was like being in a bootcamp... So if they had any concerns that I was slightly curvier than maybe they had wanted, they did a damn good job of hiding it by getting a personal trainer on board.”
