“Titanic” was Released 26 Years Ago! Actors Who Portrayed Rose and Jack May Have Aged but Remain Elegant with Timeless Beauty

Titanic, one of the classic movies from the 90s, was released 26 years ago. According to moviegoers, the film is still one of the most-watched films of all time and can be streamed on movie websites. It is described as the most touching love story released in the cinemas.

Have you ever wondered how Jack and Rose would have looked like now if the movie had a sequel wherein Jack supposedly survived? Through the years, netizens have followed the actors who portrayed the protagonists, and avid fans have watched every movie they have appeared in. When Titanic was released in 1997, about 26 years ago, fans still talk about how a poor artist and an aristocratic woman found love most unexpectedly. The story was very touching!

The real Titanic was once a luxury liner that launched on May 31, 1911. It was called “a miracle in the history of world industry.” However, due to an unforeseen collision with a giant iceberg, the ship that was deemed “unsinkable” sank on April 15, 1912. It was the ship’s maiden voyage and its last.

In the movie, the story of Jack and Rose may be fictional, but it brings the most touching and memorable scenes to the film. At the time of filming, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, who portrayed Jack and Rose, were 23 and 22 years old, respectively. During the film’s release, Leonardo and Kate became the most iconic screen couple.

Rumor has it that when the casting director was interviewing for the role of Jack, he decided to cast Leonardo due to his good looks. Although his acting skills were not at par with the roles he portrayed in his past films, his appearance onscreen overshadowed them. However, fans claimed that Leonardo portrayed Jack very well.

Jack, a rebellious poor artist, and Rose, an elegant aristocratic woman, were originally from different worlds. However, fate brought them together, and they deeply fell in love with one another. Unfortunately, when the ship collided with an iceberg, chaos began, and Jack left the world to save Rose. The scene was such a tear-jerker and made countless viewers cry.

After 26 years, the story of Jack and Rose still remains in the hearts of moviegoers and avid fans. However, over time, the appearance of both actors has changed. Although they have aged, time was gracious to them, and their good looks are still intact. Additionally, their acting skills have since gone better and are evident in the films they did post Titanic. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet have been in the industry for many years and have won numerous awards.

When she was 21 years old, Kate Winslet was selected as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world by the prestigious American magazine, “People”! However, some moviegoers claimed Kate was not beautiful enough for the role of Rose, and the casting director made a poor choice. It turned out Kate’s portrayal of Rose made the character beautiful inside and out.

When Kate portrayed Rose, she brought justice to the role and met all the qualifications of people’s expectations in terms of physical appearance. Just like her character in Titanic, Kate had an aristocratic look. However, after 26 years, her toned and plump figure is overshadowed by her timeless beauty. Nowadays, her physical appearance is fit for a queen.

At 48 years old, Kate remains as beautiful as when she was younger. However, her figure is more plump, and small wrinkles have appeared on her beautiful face. Even so, Kate still exudes a noble temperament, which makes her a head-turner when she walks by. Although everyone ages over time, Kate Winslet’s beauty remains timeless.

In the past years, Kate signed up for fewer projects and became a full-time mother. She has reduced her workload to focus on her family life, and after going through 3 marriages, she still values her current marriage and is a loving wife to Edward Abel Smith, whom she met in 2011.

Her latest movie is Lee, released in 2023, and appeared as Elena Vernham in the TV mini-series The Regime.

Then and now, Leonardo DiCaprio has been famous among thousands of young women all over the globe. He has the appearance that magnets fans. However, he could have relied more on his acting abilities to make more films than on his appearance, which has changed significantly over the years. Although he remains as handsome as ever, he too has aged and has become chubbier than when he was younger.

Although his physical appearance is very different now from his Titanic days, he still occupies a place in the entertainment industry and is usually seen with young supermodels, which made him infamous to some people. Controversy and mixed emotions have flooded stories about Leonardo, making people feel envy, jealousy, and hatred towards him.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest film is the Academy Awards nominated film Killers of the Flower Moon.

In 2008, Leonardo and Kate reunited in another film, entitled Revolutionary Road, playing a couple, Frank and April Wheeler. Although they were superb in portraying the roles, their onscreen chemistry did not match their iconic roles in Titanic.
