Matthew McConaughey ALMOST Played Jack In Titanic...Legit
In news that can only be described as WTF, comes this.
Hollywood is riddled with stacks of 'could've beens' but this one is a friggen doozy.
Kate Winslet, who played Rose in Titanic, has revealed that producers over at Paramount Pictures had Matthew McConaughey in mind to play Jack.
She dropped the bombshell on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when talking about the auditions.
"I auditioned with Matthew, isn't that weird?" Winslet said.
"[I've] never said that in public before. I auditioned with Matthew, which was completely fantastic...It just wouldn't have been the whole, Jack and Rose, Kate and Leo thing."
But despite Paramount wanting McConaughey for the role, the film's director, James Cameron, insisted that Leo Dicaprio play Jack.
And now we have the proof that he didn't give up.
