Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have always been there for each other, both personally and professionally. So it comes as no surprise that the British actress asked her former Titanic co-star for some advice when preparing for her role in The Mountain Between Us.
And since Leo has worked on his fair share of films with gruelling conditions, including The Revenant, he knew exactly what to say. "[Leonardo and I] did speak before filming and he did sort of say to me, 'Oh my god, you are crazy. It's going to be freezing cold. Do you honestly know what you are sending yourself up for?'" she told E! News, adding that she would send her BFF pictures on set to keep him up to date.
"I would send him little photos of me saying, 'Thinking of you,' as I am lying in the freezing snow covered ice and he would just send back slightly worried emojis," said the Hollywood star.
The 41-year-old actress also admitted that after filming the new drama, she couldn’t compare her role to Leo’s part in The Revenant. "He did climb proper naked inside a horse carcass and I didn't do anything like that! I have to hand it to him,” she explained to the media outlet.
It’s been approximately one decade since Leo and Kate have been on screen together in 2008’s Revolutionary Road, and many fans are dying to see the two friends work together again - which may not be far too from the future. Kate revealed that while there are no plans for them reunite right now, she definitely wants to someday. "There's nothing that Leo and I have planned. But as always I would love to work with him again one day but who knows? It might not happen until we're 70,” Kate said.
