AceShowbiz - More than twenty years after the movie's release, the question of whether Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack could've survived if he'd climbed onto a floating door that saved Kate Winslet's Rose is still the biggest movie controversy. Thus when interviewing the Oscar-winning actor along with his "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" co-stars Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, MTV News couldn't help bringing up the debate again.
Robbie reacted first when Josh Horowitz posed the question to DiCaprio. "Oh my gosh, I thought it. I remember bawling my eyes out when I was a girl," she shared, while DiCaprio refused to answer it and said, "I have no comment."
Asked to weigh in on it, Pitt deliberately replied, "Well I'm going to go back and look now, shoot." Robbie pointed out, "That is the biggest controversy in modern cinema," and DiCaprio agreed, adding, "Ever."
But Pitt and Robbie wouldn't let it go and continued pressing DiCaprio, possibly hoping to get an answer from the Jack depicter himself. "Could you, could you have squeezed in there? You could've, couldn't you?" Pitt teased his friend. "No comment," DiCaprio said, sheepishly.
Robbie joined in and asked him, "Did you mention it at the time? Were you like, should we make the door smaller?" DiCaprio also shut her down with a smile, "Like I said, no comment." Pitt then tried to come to DiCaprio's aid, calling the controversial scene an example of "movie magic."
While DiCaprio refused to answer the question, his co-star Kate Winslet previously gave her two cents on the door controversy. The actress, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in the 1997 hit movie, agreed with Jimmy Kimmel that Rose essentially let her lover die. "I agree," she said in 2016. "I think he could have actually fit on that bit of door."
Meanwhile, director James Cameron joked in 2017 that Jack had to die "because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies. Very simple."
