Kate Winslet first auditioned for Titanic with Matthew McConaughey

 

The iconic pairing of Kate Winslet and Leonardo Dicaprio was the USP of the superhit movie Titanic. Dicaprio won our hearts over with his uber romantic climax scene! Jack Dawson, was romance personified! 

 

                                            

 

 

 

However, he didn't quite make it as the lead actor in the movie. Paramount Pictures were quite keen on casting Matthew Mconaughey. However director James Cameron’s insistence for DiCaprio to take on the part ultimately prevailed. His choice was truly justified.

 

It was only recently that Kate Winslet has revealed she auditioned for her part of Rose DeWitt Bukater in "Titanic" with Matthew McConaughey. 

 

During "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", the host said Paramount wanted to cast McConaughey as Jack in the film. "I auditioned with Matthew, isn't that weird? I've never said that in public before!" Winslet said.
