Kate Winslet recently confessed that her epic nude photo from "Titanic" haunts her till date. The Oscar winning actress who shot for the memorable scene 17 years ago is still asked by fans to sign the photo. During the premiere of "Divergent" in London, Winslet was asked by a fan to sign her nude sketch from the movie. However, Winslet refused.
"I don't sign that [picture]. It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that?" Winslet told Yahoo Movies. "People ask me to sign that [picture] a lot. There's a photo of it as well that someone has lifted from a still of the film, and that photo gets passed around too. I'm like 'No! I didn't mean for it to be a photograph that I would end up seeing still 17 years later."
The actress further suggested that the fact that people still carry that picture is no less than disturbing.
"It's still haunting me. It's quite funny really," she added
Winslet and Leonardo Di Caprio shot to fame in 1997, when "Titanic" went on to become an all time blockbuster. James Cameron, who was recently lauded for his impeccable work in "Avatar", directed the film. The picture of Winslet, which Di Caprio draws in the movie was actually sketched by Cameron. It shows Winslet lying on a sofa with just a piece of jewelry on her neck.
Comparing her and Di Caprio's 1997 fame to "Divergent" stars, Winslet said, "What Shai and Theo are going through right now is exactly the same as what Kate and Leo were going through. It really is no different.In fact, I think it's probably harder for them, because of the digital world... It's just happening much faster for them than it probably did for us."
