Winslet: I missed all the Champagne

Kate Winslet’s biggest ‘Titanic’ regret is being too ill to attend the original premiere 15 years ago and missing out on all of the free champagne.

The Titanic movie has returned in 3D this weekend, as April will be the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the ship.

Actress, Kate, has a deep regret after she contracted a bug while filming in Morocco 15 years ago and had to be hospitalised in London rather than attending the red carpet screening of the movie.

She admitted she was more worried about the parties she missed out on rather than the film.

She said: ”I missed all the press activity, I was filming something in Morocco and they had built in the schedule, three days when I could come over to England and go to the premier and do all the press and I had contracted some terrible stomach bug when I was in Marrakesh and as soon as I landed in London I was just wiped out and literally had to be rushed to hospital and was on a drip for two days and missed everything!”

”So I had various family members and Jim Cameron and Leo [Leonardo DiCaprio] all coming in dribs and drabs throughout the night, after the screening of the film to see how I was doing and to tell me about all the wonderful things I was missing out on, caviar bar, great DJ and free Champagne – back in the days of free Champagne being a seriously big deal.”

“I missed it all!”
