James Cameron Finally Weighs In

It's the scene in Titanic that everyone seems to have the same opinion on. Why on earth didn't Rose move over a little bit so Jack could get on that door floating in the water? Was she just plain selfish.


Well, I think we all also agree that Rose was pretty stupid for throwing the necklace in the water at the end...but I'll save that rant for another time.

So what does James Cameron think of Rose just letting Jack die in the water? He doesn't think there's much that could have been done.

He told The Daily Beast that in the script, "Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive."

Even then, though, Mythbusters showed that he could have gotten back on the board.


Cameron thinks that's hogwash. "Mythbusters asks you to now go take off your life vest, take hers off, swim underneath this thing, attach it in some way that it won't just wash out two minutes later - which means you're underwater tying this thing on in 28-degree water, and that's going to take you five to ten minutes, so by the time you come back up you're already dead."

According to Cameron, Jack just has to die, I guess.

On a completely other note, can we just point out that she says, "I'll never let go," and then LITERALLY let's Jack go."

Okay, I'm done venting about Titanic.
