Avatar: The Way of Water is not the first project Kate Winslet has worked on with James Cameron. In fact, her first work with “Jim” (Cameron) was on 1997’s Titanic where the actress played as Rose. As of now, it would seem that Kate Winslet’s previous comment about never wanting to work with the director again has resurfaced.

In an interview on The Guardian back in 1999, Winslet made a comment on why she never wants to work with the Avatar creator again:

“He has a temper like you wouldn’t believe. You’d have to pay me a lot of money to work with Jim again.”

Interestingly, seeing as Winslet is back on a project with Cameron again, it is only natural that the actress should clarify what she meant before. The actress is quick to address on The Graham Norton Show that given the passing time since Titanic, she had admittedly outgrown a lot of what happened between them. Check out her full quote below:

“It’s nearly 27 years since Titanic and I was very young. Looking back so much gets twisted. Jim is an amazing man and all the good things I ever said about him were left out, so it’s nice to be able to say how extraordinary he is and know people are going to listen this time.”

The actress continues on to say how the working environment on the Avatar: The Way of Water set is “so much fun”, “really collaborative”, and “super experimental” that she could do it over and over again.

It would seem that whatever ‘beef’ Kate Winslet had with James Cameron previously, both have managed to act civil, which is no surprise since it’s inevitable of working in the same industry. In fact, Cameron was very much aware of the immense pressure the actress had experienced working on Titanic, as he had addressed on Radio Times:

“I think Kate came out of Titanic a bit traumatized by the scale of the production and her responsibility within it. We’ve both been eager over time to work together again, to see what the other is about at this point in our lives and careers.”

Avatar: The Way of Water premieres on December 16, 2022.
