Kate Winslet expressed dissatisfaction with the fame that followed her role in “Titanic,” citing media intrusion and personal scrutiny as significant downsides.

Despite the challenges, she acknowledges the joy the film brings to people and looks back on it fondly.

“I felt like I had to look a certain way, or be a certain thing, and because media intrusion was so significant at that time, my life was quite unpleasant,” Winslet said.

“Journalists would always say, ‘After Titanic, you could have done anything and yet you chose to do these small things’ … and I was like, ‘Yeah, you bet your life I did! Because, guess what, being famous was horrible.’”

“It’s not a burden, any of it,” Winslet said. “[Titanic] continues to bring people huge amounts of joy,” she added. “The only time I am like, ‘Oh God, hide,’ is if we are on a boat somewhere.”

Winslet also mentioned feeling bullied by the British media and expressed relief when the scrutiny eventually passed.

“It was like night and day from one day to the next,” she said. “Also, I was subject to quite a lot of also personal physical scrutiny, and criticized quite a lot — the British press were actually quite unkind to me.”

“I felt quite bullied, if I’m honest,” Winslet added. “I remember just thinking, ‘Okay, well, this is horrible and I hope it passes.’ And it did definitely pass but it also made me realize that if that’s what being famous was, I was not ready to be famous, thank you. No, definitely not.”

Director James Cameron also noted that Winslet seemed “traumatized” by the film’s scale and her role within it.
