Actress says her life changed


Kate Winslet admits she struggled to cope with all the attention after appearing in Titanic.

The actress and Leonardo DiCaprio, 35, became overnight stars when the film was released in 1997.

‘I felt overwhelmed by it all,’ Kate, 34, tells the Sunday Express magazine.

Leo was completely cool with everything – he grew up in Los Angeles and understood the implications of fame…

‘Whereas I was a plump girl in England who never imagined myself in that situation.

‘I wasn’t ready to become a major star. I was terrified about how radically it was changing my life.’
