Kate Winslet Has a Red Carpet Reunion With 'Titanic' Director James Cameron
By Jackie Willis
Kate Winslet hasn't lost ties with the Titanic team.
On Tuesday night, the 42-year-old actress posed with James Cameron, the director of the 1997 blockbuster, at the SFFILM's 60th Anniversary Awards Night at Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco, California.
Winslet received the Peter J. Owens Award at the event, and looked stunning in a sleeveless little black dress that she paired with statement earrings.
Winslet isn't just reuniting with Cameron on the red carpet. In October, it was announced that the Oscar winner had signed on for the filmmaker's Avatar sequel. This will be the first time the A-list star has worked with Cameron on a project since Titanic.
“Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on Titanic, which was one of the most rewarding of my career,” the 63-year-old director told Variety. “I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life.”
"I have to be honest. I think doing Titanic really taught me a lot about thinking ahead. When you read the script, Jack and Rose run through the flooded dining room. You have to know that's gonna be five days of shooting, because it was five days of shooting," she explained. "So, it certainly helped me when I was reading this script. [You] just [have to] be very realistic about what was going to be required of us as actors."
