Kate Winslet regretting missing the original 'Titanic' premiere which was not receiving any free champagne. She said: "I missed all the press activity, I was filming something in Morocco and they had built in the schedule, three days when I could come over to England and go to the premier and do all the press and I had contracted some terrible stomach bug when I was in Marrakesh and as soon as I landed in London I was just wiped out and literally had to be rushed to hospital and was on a drip for two days and missed everything! "So I had various family members and Jim Cameron and Leo [Leonardo DiCaprio] all coming in dribs and drabs throughout the night, after the screening of the film to see how I was doing and to tell me about all the wonderful things I was missing out on, Caviar bar, great DJ and free champagne - back in the days of free champagne being a seriously big deal!, I missed it all!"Kate, unveils she is happy for the success of the legendary flick- which is being re-released in 3D for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ocean liner - because it has allowed her more freedom in choosing her roles.In an interview with Neil Fox on Magic 105.4's Breakfast Show, she said: "I'm fortunate enough to get to choose the roles I play these days, largely due to the success of 'Titanic' actually, and so I do like choosing things that are risky and a little bit unexpected. It was really 'Titanic' that provided that creative freedom for me and actually then years later becoming a mother, it has been so brilliant the success of that film, because it has meant I haven't had to work as well and I can completely be a mum ... and that's not the case for a lot of actresses who are starting out and have to take what they can."
