The movie Titanic first premiered in 1997 and it has been breaking hearts ever since. Pretty much everyone has shed a tear — or full on sobbed — during that last scene when the young and beautiful Jack, played by the older and still beautiful Leonardo DiCaprio, froze to death because Rose, played by Kate Winslet, refused to share the raft. For years there has been a major debate happening as to whether there was room for the two love birds to share that raft while waiting for a life boat — and now Winslet herself is finally weighing in on this major debate.

While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel confronted Winslet about how she could still hang out with DiCaprio at award shows even though she "let him freeze to death in the water." "I agree," the Steve Jobs actress admitted. "I think he could have actually fit on that bit of door." Rose herself has finally confirmed what the Internet has been debating for years. With an amazing movie romance that's only rivaled by The Notebook, it's no wonder fans (a.k.a. us) still aren't over Rose literally letting Jack go. These two still manage to give us major #relationshipgoals whenever they're spotted chatting at events together. The best part of the interview though was definitely when Winslet admitted she'd love to work with DiCaprio again. Fingers crossed it's to play on-screen love interests once again!

"People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space, which at the end of the day, that's so lovely," Winslet said. "It's been 20 years and people still get such a kick out of it. It's really quite endearing." It's really no surprise everyone's still fantasizing about what could have been for their characters, Rose and Jack had all the makings of a modern day Romeo and Juliet.

The two shared too many special moments to count that seriously set the bar for romance way high. You're lying to yourself if you didn't swoon when Rose and Jack shared their first kiss, or get a little flustered when Rose stripped down to nothing but that sapphire "heart of the sea" necklace and had Jack draw her. We all definitely blushed during what is possibly the steamiest on-screen scene of all, when they spend some quality alone time in the back of the car fogging up the windows.

Until Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out, Titanic was the biggest domestic movie of all time. The tragic romance made a cool $658.7 million after all. Winslet even scored a coveted Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her role.
