Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston in Titanic rumors
Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet catapulted to fame after playing the roles of Jack and Rose in the movie. But according to Geo.TV exes Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were also considered for the roles.
Director James Cameron was allegedly eyeing several Hollywood A-listers for the project, and Pitt, and Aniston were top on the list. Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Tom Cruise, and Nicole Kidman were also among his choices.
DiCaprio not very enthusiastic about the role
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet scored the lead roles for Titanic. However, according to Winslet and the producer of the movie, The Revenant actor wasn’t very interested in playing Jack’s role, Showbiz Cheatsheet reported.
At the time, DiCaprio allegedly wanted to break free from his “heartthrob” status. He wanted to play dark and flawed characters. Film producer Rae Sanchini convinced the actor to take on the role.
Sanchini explained that Jack has the purest heart and is not conflicted. He knows what exactly he wants and his place in the world. He is fearless and ready to fall in love. In fact, he is peace with his decision to die for the woman he loves.
At that point, DiCaprio realized that “playing a character like Jack, who doesn’t have any obvious stuff to hide behind…was a challenge in and of itself.”
Aniston and Pitt reunion
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt’s fans are still eager to see them together. A few weeks ago, Wendy Williams asked the netizens to name the celebrity couple they would like to see together.
The majority of those who responded named Pitt and Aniston. However, they might not get what they wanted. Several sources said the two are just friends.
Pitt and Aniston never rekindled their romance despite rumors claiming they secretly wed and were expecting a baby. Also, the Ad Astra star is currently in a relationship.
Pitt is dating German model Nicole Poturalski. Their relationship was confirmed last month after their Paris sighting. According to several tabloids, Pitt took Poturalski to his marital home with Jolie in Paris – Chateau Miraval.
The move raised some eyebrows because the visit happened on the same week Pitt married Angelina Jolie in the same place six years ago. Several called out Pitt for being insensitive.
