Now, Winslet teams up with Cameron again Avatar 2. In an interview with Collider, the actress admitted that their time together is on set Titanic It was difficult, but the equation had since changed considerably for the better.
“Okay, look, we’re all grown up. We’ve all grown up. I look at the experience of making.” Titanic And it is no secret that it was a very difficult shooting. It was very, very stressful and all the things involved were tough … and Jim Cameron on Avatar, he’s cool. I would say that he is making more strides in his real self right now, I think. This is due to experience. This is also because he has incarnated earlier, so he knows this world and he knows these characters. He has invented that method of filming. There is a level of confidence that has brought him to a much more comfortable place, just for him.

Nevertheless, despite the additional complications, Kate winslet There was no fear for his life on the set, as according to him, Cameron has evolved into the type of filmmaker who puts the safety of his cast and crew above all else.
“[Jim] Honestly there was fantastic support on Avatar. I was saddened by the fact that it allows for actors to go into a scene often just once, if it doesn’t feel like it’s quite right. And apparently security had to come first. Listen, if there is a proper world collapse and we are really setting fire and another global [emergency] Now any minute, I can lay my hand on my heart and tell you that one of the people I want to be with in that bunker is Jim Cameron. He is very much safety first. I enjoyed working with him. I am very excited for Avatar. I didn’t realize that was an underwater picture for me. strange.”
