Titanic Director Settles That Stupid Door Debate Once And For All
Rose and Jack's fate in Titanic - the most hotly contested movie ending of all time.
He dies, she lives. WHY?!
You'll remember that Kate Winslet takes up most of the room on the floating door that saves her life - but it seems she could have scooched over and let Leo on, too.
Fans everywhere believe Jack should have lived - but Titanic director James Cameron had it in for Jack from the beginning:
"We're gonna go there? Look, it's very, very simple: you read page 147 of the script and it says, 'Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive,' It's that simple", he told The Daily Beast.
"His best choice was to keep his upper body out of the water and hope to get pulled out by a boat or something before he died."
Fans have always argued that Jack could have fashioned some kind of floating device to keep himself out of the water and therefore warmer. Myth-busting websites have even tried it out on video.
"OK, so let's really play that out: you're Jack, you're in water that's 28 degrees, your brain is starting to get hypothermia.
Mythbusters asks you to now go take off your life vest, take hers off, swim underneath this thing, attach it in some way that it won't just wash out two minutes later—which means you're underwater tying this thing on in 28-degree water, and that's going to take you five to ten minutes, so by the time you come back up you're already dead. So that wouldn't work."
At the end of the day, the story was more memorable because Jack *didn't* make it.
"I think you guys are missing the point here," he explained at the time. "The script says Jack dies, he has to die. Maybe we screwed up. The board should have been a tiny bit smaller. But the dude's going down."
The guy ain't wrong - 20 years later and we're still talking about it...
