"Acting’s hard. If you’re trying to do it properly, it makes you vulnerable. When you’re an actor you have to confront your true feelings every single day. And that’s pretty exhausting. Then you have to go home and make dinner.”

Titanic (film) trivia: The swim dress was the biggest costume design challenge in the movie. Over 24 copies of it were made due to all the strain that was put on them from being in the water for all the action scenes. The dress had a tremendous amount of layers to it but James Cameron wanted it to look as if it was naked against Rose’s skin when soaked. In order to achieve that effect, Kate couldn’t wear any kind of wetsuit underneath her costume unlike all the other cast and crew members who were able to protect themselves from the freezing water.
Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren & Emma Thompson photographed in the frame of the SAFE Project for human rights. The project was a collaboration between the Helen Bamber Foundation, Emma Thompson & photographer Nick Haddow (2010).
The pictures were taken in places they felt —safe. At home in Connecticut for Meryl, “in remembrance” for Judi, in the mist in front of her home for Kate, in the back of a London cab for Helen and in her Scottish river for Emma (which will probably remind you of the policeman story, if you see what I mean…).

And then something wonderful happened on my birthday - out of the blue, I received a beautiful arrangement of flowers with a note inside saying,'I just remembered it was your birthday and wanted to say I miss you.' It was from Leo, and of course I called him, and we've been in touch regularly ever since.
