Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as Kate Winslet, virtually missed out on starring in Titanic

James Cameron shared some shocking details from the making of 'Titanic', as the motion picture celebrates 25 years of release next month.

In a meeting, Cameron said he practically really did not cast Leonardo DiCaprio or Kate Winslet as the two romantic leads.

Cameron claimed he was at first thinking about somebody like Gwyneth Paltrow for Rose.

Cameron added he was afraid that placing Winslet in the duty "was mosting likely to appear like the laziest casting worldwide."

With DiCaprio, there were reportedly some preliminary hiccups

Cameron later on invited DiCaprio back for a screen test with Winslet, that had actually already been cast then.

The supervisor was surprised to discover he'd need to review lines and be recorded along with Winslet to gauge their chemistry on video camera.

'Titanic' was released on December 19, 1997, and also won 11 Academy Awards.

The flick earned over $2 billion in box office collection.

While Kate Winslet has a net worth of $65 million in 2022, DiCaprio's net worth is estimated at $300 million.
