Kate Winslet hates ‘My Heart Will Go On’

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio

Remember when Titanic came out something like fifteen years ago (1997), it was boring as hell and overwrought, taking nearly three hours for the ship to even sink, then someone gave Celine Dion the most over-emotive song they could find and made her stretch each and every note far beyond its welcome? Well, Kate Winslet hated all of that too, almost as much as you did! The Daily Mail reports:

Kate Winslet told MTV News: ‘I feel like throwing up when I hear it. No, I shouldn’t say that. No, actually, I do feel like throwing up. 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, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll.’

Here’s the thing about fellow Canadian Celine Dion: the bitch is all kinds of crazy awesome. I mean that in the sense that she is totally incredible, yet also completely insane. Celine is way talented too, but she’s at her very worst when she’s given total free reign to go as insane as only she can on a track. So yeah, that freaking song at the end of Titanic definitely isn’t one of my favorites.
