Leonardo DiCaprio's 'Best Girl' Cora Describes Filming Titanic As A Kid
Titanic is still one of the most iconic films of all time, and who could forget the scene where Jack and Rose descend to the belly of the ship and party like it's 1912, they're Irish and they're about to die a horrible, drawn-out death?
The lovers down beers, stand on tip-toes (ouch - we still can't watch that part) and play with the most cute-dorable kid in the world, Cora. WHO LOOKS LIKE THIS NOW:
Alex Owens-Sarno is 28 now (the movie came out in 1997) and still has amazing memories of filming with Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. TOO LUCKY.
Speaking to Buzzfeed, she said: My mom has an amazing picture of me, Leo, Kate, and my little sister Rachel hanging out when they were resetting for the dancing scene. It’s one of my favorites and is a reminder of just how lucky I am to have worked with two of the best actors out there.”
“Leonardo DiCaprio was an absolute doll. He was so fun and charming. He loved to put a smile on everyone’s face. [I’d often] be on his lap with a PB&J in between takes.”
There's a deleted scene where Jack actually sketches Cora, as well as the famous dancing scene.
Alex explained, “James Cameron had done all of Jack’s sketches [for the movie], and they had the sketch Jack does of Cora signed by Leonardo DiCaprio for me. Unfortunately, it got stolen out of someone’s trailer. That would have been the most amazing keepsake!”
A scene was also filmed where Cora and her parents can't escape a ship's corridor as the water rises, but we're totally glad was taken out. Too. Sad.
So what's she up to these days?
“I’ve been writing sketch comedy that I’ll start producing very soon, and I’m also in the process of writing a novel.” Awesome. A happy ending, then! <3
