Fifteen years ago, the youthful star-crossed lovers in 1997's Titanic - played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet - helped propel James Cameron's epic blockbuster into box-office history. The film earned $1.8 billion worldwide and scored 11 Oscars. We all remember it.
Now Titanic is sailing back into theaters on April 4, this time in 3D. To mark the re-release, PEOPLE spoke with Winslet and she shared her thoughts.
"My American accent is appalling!" says Winslet. "Here we are 15 years on, and I've learnt so much more, not just about myself but the job that I do and the world of film, and I look at myself in Titanic and I wish I could bring all this knowledge that I now have into that."
In a separate interview with CNN, she furthermore criticized her accent, "It sounds terribly self indulgent but actors do tend to be very self-critical. I have a hard time watching any of my performances, but watching 'Titanic' I was just like 'Oh God, I want to do that again'." To MTV, she added, "[It] could've been much better. My acting could've been a lot better."
