Kate Winslet lovingly teases her good friend Leonardo DiCaprio. Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. Hear Kate's quote about how the tables have turned in today's PopSugar Rush. It's been 15 years since Titanic sailed into theaters, and according to Kate Winslet, the film's new 3-D treatment isn't the film's only big transformation! Ms. Winslet appeared on the UK's Daybreak this morning, where she joked about the more manly body that Leonardo DiCaprio's sporting these days, saying, [pull quote] "We do look very different, we're older. . . He's fatter now, I'm thinner." PopSugar editor Lauren Turner is here to put Kate's quote in perspective. —Leo is just as much of a heartthrob now as he was back then —Kate definitely wasn't putting him down, she loves Leo! —Remember her speech at the 2009 Golden Globes? "Leo I am so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love you!" Kate's love for Leo has definitely been on display as she's promoted Titanic's rerelease — she recently recounted how giddy she was when she landed the role back in the mid-90s, when Leo was at the height of his heartthrob status. "When they finally gave me the role I remember calling my friends and my family and saying, God, you're not going to believe who's playing Jack, you're not going to believe who's playing the boy's part — it's Leonardo DiCaprio! Don't you remember him from What's Eating Gilbert Grape and I mean I just had so much respect for him that I just couldn't wait to share in the experience with him because I knew it would be challenging, I knew it was going to be exciting." —When Titanic was casting, Leo was truly at the top of his game at the time, having recently wrapped hit films such as Romeo + Juliet and The Basketball Diaries —Kate on the other hand, was landing lead roles, but mostly in lesser known movies —Now both actors are considered A-listers, and it's great watching them support one —Unfortunately, Kate's been doing Titanic press alone since he is on location in New Orleans filming Quentin Tarantino's new film, Django Unchained Titanic in 3D will be in theaters tomorrow.
