Yet Another Theory About Rose and Jack on That Door in Titanic Is Here to F*ck You Up

28 April 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Whether you love Titanic, hate Titanic, or have never even seen Titanic, there's no way you've managed to escape endless theories and debates over that f*cking door. You know the one - the door at the end that probably could have fit both Rose and Jack, but which Jack lets only Rose float on while he clings to the side and eventually freezes to death. Like I said, that f*cking door. Although Titanic director James Cameron himself debunked the theory that Jack ever could've fit on the door, fans of the movie tend to disagree. The debate has been so intense over the years that Mythbusters finally re-created the scene to try to get to the bottom of it, and even they concluded there was plenty of room for Jack. Well, a Reddit theory about the issue has resurfaced (unlike Jack, Rip), and it puts everything we've ever »

James Cameron Defends ‘Titanic’ Ending, Says The ‘MythBusters’ Guys Are ‘Full of S**t’

31 January 2017 9:06 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year, James Cameron’s critical and commercial smash hit “Titanic,” about two people from different social classes who fall in love aboard the doomed vessel, turns 20 years old. For many, that means revisiting the film after so many years, but for others it means revisiting the question of whether Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) could have climbed up next to Rose (Kate Winslet) onto a wooden door and therefore survived the end of the film.

MythBusters” hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman tackled this question once before and claimed that Jack could have survived, but Cameron has repeatedly said that the board is not buoyant enough to hold two people. However, it was brought up once again in a new interview with The Daily Beast and Cameron staunchly defended the film’s ending and said that, though the “MythBusters” guys are “full of shit.”

James Cameron Blasts 'MythBusters' for Saying Jack Could Have Fit on the Door in 'Titanic'

31 January 2017 8:52 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

James Cameron is putting an age-old Titanic debate to rest.

Plenty of fans have argued through the years that Leonardo DiCaprio's character, Jack, could have fit on the floating door with Kate Winslet's character, Rose, when they were both stranded in the middle of the ocean, therefore saving him from death at the end of the film. Cameron himself even appeared in a 2012 episode of MythBusters to address the theory, and the Discovery show determined that both Rose and Jack could have in fact, survived.

However, in a new interview, Cameron is changing his tune.

"Ok, so let's really play that out: you're Jack, you're in water that's 28 degrees, your brain is starting to get hypothermia," Cameron explains to The Daily Beast. "MythBusters asks you to now go take off your life vest, take hers off, swim underneath »

James Cameron Defends Titanic Ending: Mythbusters Is ‘Full of S—‘

A version of this article originally appeared on ew.com.

That floating door could not have held two people, James Cameron says.

The Oscar-winning director of Titanic was asked in a recent interview with The Daily Beast about the long-running dispute over the ending of his 1997 blockbuster hit, when a piece of wood debris from the title ship keeps Rose (Kate Winslet) out of the freezing water while her lover Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) perishes. C’mon, there had to room for both of them on there, right? After all, didn’t Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters prove they could both have »
