Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio seem to be the co-ed answer to Matt and Ben. They've starred together in Titanic
and Revolutionary Road
, he's walked her down the aisle, and they've never, ever been more than "just friends."
“I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing,” Winslet told Marie Claire U.K.
The November cover girl added: “It’s so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did.
“He always saw me as one of the boys; I’ve never really been a girly-girl. We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy bloody hours and it was a shock to the system.”
Winslet also let it slip that she and DiCaprio are both nearing 40 — him this November 11, her on October 5, 2015 — but nixed plans for a joint celebration.
"He's 40 this year and I'm 40 next — that's weird," the British actress said. "Isn't that weird? He wouldn’t have a joint party with me, he really wouldn't. Definitely not. He likes to have his moments. But, also I don't think I'd want to have a joint party with him, more to the bloody point!”
Fair enough. When these two get together — at least on screen — one of them does
(spoiler) end up dying. Then again, a guy named Ned Rocknroll (a.k.a Winslet's husband) does sound like he deserves to be partying on a yacht with supermodels while Leo chases after whale poachers.
