The Revenant star Leonardo DiCaprio says when he first signed on to play Jack Dawson in Titanic he never expected it would become the highest-grossing film of all time and it was more like an experiment for him and Kate Winslet.

“Titanic was very much an experiment for Kate Winslet and I,” he said. “We’d done all of these independent movies. I loved her as an actress and she said, ‘Let’s do this together, we can do this.’ We did it, and it became something that we could’ve never foreseen.”
