It’s been more than 18 years since Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio met on the set of Titanic, and while their maiden onscreen relationship ended tragically, Kate and Leo’s love has lived on in the years since. The two prima donnas, who shared the big screen again in 2008’s Revolutionary Road, have remained stop friends for more than 20 years. In that time, they’ve had nothing but kind things to say about each other — Leo has called Kate the “best actor of her age” — and smiley red carpet photo ops! Let’s take a look at their astonishing friendship through the years.
It all started with Titanic in 1997. Kate and Leo turned 21 and 22, singly, while making the movie. Their onscreen chemistry was undeniable, which Leo addressed in a 1997 sound out with Entertainment Tonight: “She’s such a terrific person in heterogeneous that our chemistry naturally happened on screen. We just like each other as being. As far as doing a love scene, though, we laughed about it a lot.”
