'Titanic' Theme Song Makes Me Want To Throw Up, Kate Winslet Says
By Rene Lynch April 15, 2012
And the Oscar for the most refreshingly candid actress goes to ... "Titanic" star Kate Winslet!
Check out the above video of Winslet making the media rounds in advance of the re-release of "Titanic," the mega-blockbuster that made her a household name and earned her an Academy Award nomination for best actress. Winslet had two options going into this interview. She could have done the whole Hollywood-smiley-face thing and gushed on and on about how the 1997 movie changed her life, about how much she loves it, about the on-screen magic she shared with co-star Leonardo DiCaprio ... blah, blah, blah.
Or Winslet could have told it like it is.
Winslet said that she feels "like throwing up" when she hears the soaring theme song of "Titanic." In fact, she said, the signature Celine Dion ballad "haunts" her.
"I wish I could say, 'Oh listen everybody! It's the Celine Dion song!' But I don't. I just have to sit there, you know, kinda straight-faced, with a massive internal eye roll," she said.
It's no wonder she feels that way: "My Heart Will Go On" follows Winslet wherever she goes.
"Every time I go into either some kind of a bar in a hotel where there's a live pianist or into a restaurant where they are changing their music according to who walks in the door ... it's thrilling for people to 'surprise' me with the Celine Dion song," she said. (snip)
"It rather haunts me," she said of the song. "Bless you, Celine, but it does rather haunt me."

Ditto, Kate. Ditto
Just happened to see this come up.
I can’t blame her, but then, that actually is typical Hollywood - despise the 1 huge thing in your career that made your career. Happens with all of them - they want to “get beyond” that big moment, big break. Christopher Reeve didn’t like being Superman, blah blah blah....
I prefer the Tom Petty “Titanic Song.”
Titanic, what a really great song
Titanic, that boat was long
Titanic, Celine Dion should be chained to the
The ending made me sick. The very last minute of the movie where she threw the diamond in to the ocean. Disgusting, feed some starving children or something.
This movie has been out for some time and if you think I am giving spoilers, I am going to take one from the folks at Penny Arcade. Huge spoiler on the Bible. Jesus dies at the end!
She is what my mother would have called an ingrate.
She probably heard it about a billion times when making the movie. There are very few songs I can listen to over and over without wanting to not hear it again ever.
‘Titanic’ Theme Song Makes Me Want To Throw Up, Kate Winslet Says
Yeah? the whole *MOVIE* and you in it makes me want to throw up.
If you think that is what happened at the end, you are wrong and you never have read the Bible. That was not the end of the story. Jesus died for your sins so that you may have eternal life, BUT He was resurrected from the dead, to prove God has power over death. Death could not hold Jesus in the grave. Jesus is alive!
I wasI have spent my life since avoiding it wherever possible. I wished to go down in history as the man who died with the least knowledge of it.
And you just ruined my perfect record. Thank you. But my heart will go on ;)
We just finished watching the whole Titanic thing. Sort of interesting but even my engineer husband agrees that its all a bit gay.
The sappy Titanic song will go on and on!
Maybe she would like Peter Paul and Marys version.
Could be worse. It could have been “You light up my life”.
I thought the last song the band on the Titanic played was “Nearer My God to Thee”.
New research shows it was actually Celine Dion singing “My Heart Will Go On”, and that is when the ship broke in two, forward of the third funnel.
I'm just a regular slob so this concept fascinates me. There are bars, restaurants, hotels which change music according to who is walking in? Where and who? I would think that there are very few people who actually have their own "theme song".
You are correct, she is an ingrate; the movie has made her MILLIONS of dollars, she is an international star and famous world-wide. She reminds me of another ingrate: a girl named Fox who bit the hand that fed her and made her a star... where is she today? Nowheresville.
This would have saved you a lot of time.
Titanic in 5 Seconds
And your mother would have been correct.
If poor baby Kate Winslet gets so upset about a movie song, perhaps she should leave films and get a job as a waitress or a taxi driver.
Or even worse “Muskrat Love”
Onoz. I remember that song.
You light up my life.
The first 10 times faded into the invasion of the body snatchers 10,000, and I was reduced to preferential white noise.
Nothing is worse, however, than being anywhere near food when Karen Carpenter comes on. Such a beautiful voice and reputation as a singer all shot to pieces next to a sandwich.
Could of been “Feelings” or “Seasons in the Sun”, too! Or “Maybe, I’m Amazed”! “My Way”?
Finally, a Hollywood star shows some sense!
Don’t you buze that poor widdle muwskwat song! I haZ it! ;)
Now say anything by Babs Streisand...kill it with nuclear fire. But Muskrats whirl and twirl and tangle...like the heavens above...so there.
If only she could have been there to “touch those things!” like she wished for the poor folk. Preferably at a depth of -2000 ft. Sans sub.
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away I was for a short time a piano player in some of the bars in Cleveland and Columbus Ohio and there were rules for the crowd. Such as when the gray haired clientele was in the bar/club you stuck to waltzes and big band era stuff. Where as the Narrow Tie crowd being young career types (it was the early 80s) out for some warm up activity before heading to the hot spots you played lots of Billy Joel etc.
And if a regular walked in (wanting his tonic and gin [/Piano Man]} You would do well to break into the Song He requested most. Cause he'd get a drink from the Bar and put Bread in your Jar, And say, "Man, what are you doin' here?" (With Apologies to Mr. Joel)
Its all about connecting with the customers and good Bar Musicians and Bar Managers have known such for years.
For instance You've got a choice between a really good local Bar Band who can play anything you want but the people that tend to appreciate them are older and don't stay as late and don't spend much on booze. OR you can get the New Local band that barely can stay on the beat let alone in tune but they are loud AND all the girls in the area are totally in love with the lead singer which brings in the hot chicks which brings in the guys who buy lots of drinks and hang around all night trying to get laid.
Just a matter of Bar economics.
Very cute. My nephew and his friends post lots of 30 minute films. Usually involving zombies.
Or give a whopping inheritance to your granddaughter. (so she wouldnt have to work as a seamstress lol) If she had tried to sell it, would the insurance company that paid Nathan Hockley for its “loss” be able to come after her for a reimubursement? Statute of limitations I would think. That was nauseating to see that thing splash.
She made a fortune on the misery of 1500 people and their families.
A little gratitude would be in order.
BTW, I’d make her go down to -2.5 miles with James Cameron.
I watched his 2 hour special on the Titanic and he ruined it with globaloney warming nonsense in the last two minutes.
Sub would be optional.
What! You don't have any "Feelings" for her?
The Cure for Mecha-Streisand is Robert Smith.../South Park
When Kate Winslet was having her topless portrait painted, I kinda forgot what music was playing in the background, I guess my mind was focused on erect nipples.
“Please Mister Please”. That song got stuck in my head for some reason one night and kept me awake almost until the alarm went off. I don’t EVER want to hear that song again! (Unfortunately it is on the Muzak rotation at work and I can’t avoid it)
She shouldn’t be acting too cool for titanic. If she weren’t in this movie no one would even know who she is.
When Titanic first came out, I memorized this song and sang it to my 11 year old and her friends in my best Donald Duck voice. It brought them all to tears (of laughter, naturally).
Could have been worse:
I suspect she is also very conservative in her beliefs, based on what I've seen and heard about her beliefs about relationships, raising children, etc.
Muskrat Ramble--Louis Armstrong & the Hot Five
We shouldn’t be so hard on Kate.
In an interview I saw, she said she wasn’t the slightest bit attracted to Leonardo DiCaprio. It gave me a chuckle.
Jamie Brockett, the Ballad of the USS Titanic
I must have listened to this 497.5 times...
Any Wilson-Phillips song will make me wretch. “Hold On For One More Day” especially. Bleh!
Celine Dion singing makes me throw up. Could just be that.
I felt the exact same way about the entire movie.
I can’t stand “Seasons in the Sun”.....as the chorus repeats in head for the next 5 hours. It’s about as bad as “Me and you and dog named Boo”
Even worse, it could have been “Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head”.
Never seen the movie. I’m quite proud of that.
