Kate Winslet recalled the past, explaining that her experiences after the Titanic premiere were actually not that magical.
The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actress shared that the shine she experienced with the first screening of the film had bad consequences for her at that time.
The artist, who was a guest on Marc Maron‘s podcast, explained the rapid and striking change she went through with these words: “It was like night and day from one day to the next.”
Kate Winslet then continued: “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,” Kate adds and “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. “
The actress stated that she still learned acting and was not ready for the role when Titanic was released: “I still felt like I wasn’t really ready to do lots of big Hollywood jobs. It was a huge responsibility. I didn’t want to make mistakes, I didn’t want to blow it – I wanted to be in it for the long game. ”
