"Titanic" Myth Busted! James Cameron Says Jack and Rose Could NOT Have Both Survived on That Plank
--People often criticize the ending of "Titanic", because the plank that KATE WINSLET survives on could have EASILY fit both her and LEONARDO DICAPRIO . . . meaning his character didn't have to die.
--But director JAMES CAMERON says that even though they could have both fit, the plank wouldn't have held them both. Thus, there was no getting around the fact that one of them had to die.
--He says, quote, "It's not a question of room; it's a question of buoyancy. Jack puts Rose on the raft, then he gets on the raft . . . He's not an idiot; he doesn't want to die . . . and then the raft sinks.
--"So it's clear that there's really only enough buoyancy available for one person. So, he makes a decision to let her be that person."
--He adds that even if they COULD both balance on the raft, because of the buoyancy issue they'd be half-in and half-out of the water, and would have BOTH died of hypothermia.
--He also said he thinks the guys from the show "Mythbusters" are going to do a segment on this very conundrum . . . and he wants to help them prove it once and for all.
