James Cameron Settles Titanic Jack’s Death Controversy Once and for All

It’s the movie controversy that refuses to die: Was there enough room for Jack on Rose’s raft at the end of Titanic? Kate Winslet says yes. So do the MythBusters guys. Jack and Rose probably had other things on their minds, like trying to forget the lyrics to “My Heart Will Go On.”

Anyway, director James Cameron – who’s currently working on Avatars 3-47 – was recently asked about the controversy that the entire world is obsessing over constantly, 20 years later. “Look, it’s very, very simple,” he told the Daily Beast, “you read page 147 of the script and it says, ‘Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive.’ It’s that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want.”

Cameron also referenced Titanic when talking about President Donald Trump’s apparent crusade against environmentalism. “Years ago, we sort of spotted the iceberg ahead of us and we called out the order to turn, and we’ve been slowly, slowly, slowly trying to turn this big-ass ship to not hit the iceberg,” he said, “and then Trump grabbed the tiller and just plunged it right back at the center of the iceberg. So am I worried? Of course.”
