Friends for life.
Kate Winslet and LeonardoÂ DiCaprio have been tight since their Titanic debut back in 1997, despite all Leonardo’s smarmy dating grossness. Kate’s always been gracious, so it’s hard to get the full story. In any case, she’s still singing his praises and told People that he’s the same…but handsomer.
“He’s a solid, loyal person,” Winslet says. “He’s a great friend, he always has been, and not just to me, but to everyone around him. He still has friends he had when we made Titanic. In many ways he hasn’t changed a bit, but in other ways he absolutely has changed.”
And what else, oh glorious Kate?
“He’s a stronger actor in this moment than he’s ever been,” says Winslet, who also costarred with DiCaprio in 2008’s Revolutionary Road. “I think he’s more handsome than he’s ever been. And he feels, to me, the most settled he’s ever felt, in himself, right now, which is quite strange, really, given that there’s a lot happening around him.”
Kate might be thankful to have Leo as a friend, but sounds like it should be the other way around!
