Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio's friendship is Hollywood's greatest love story

Even better than Jack and Rose.

TWENTY YEARS AGO this year, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet were catapulted to stardom thanks to a little film called Titanic.

Unsurprisingly, somewhere along that crazy journey they became super close friends, and it’s still the same today.

They’ve been at pains to point out that they’ve never shifted, but that doesn’t matter to us (though there are entire communities devoted to shipping them). Their friendship is king.

They were only babies in Hollywood when they met

Kate was 20 when she was cast as Rose DeWitt Bukater, and Leo was 21 when he played Jack Dawson. LOOK AT THEM. They’ve their whole, Oscar-winning careers ahead of them.

And got on famously on the set of Titanic

Would it have been half as good if they didn’t have such great chemistry? No.

Twenty years on, they’re still gushing about each other in interviews

Oh yeah, they’re full time throwing around phrases like “love of my life”, “homegirl”, and “best friend”.

When Kate won a Golden Globe in 2009 for Revolutionary Road, her second movie with Leo, she said:

Leo, I’m so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love you, and how much I’ve loved you for 13 years.

He responded with this:

She married that man called Ned Rocknroll, nephew of Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic employee, remember?

So please, never fall out

We’re expecting lots more of this…
