Winslet and DiCaprio embarrassed by Titanic

Kate Winslet feels embarrassed by her performance in 1997's Titanic because her American accent was "awful" and her acting "could have been better".
Winslet stepped out in London on Tuesday night for the premiere of the new 3D version of the film, and she admitted that despite being Oscar-nominated for her role in the epic movie, she wasn't happy with her performance.
She tells CNN, "Every single scene, I'm like 'Really, really? You did it like that? Oh my God.'
"Even my American accent, I can't listen to it. It's awful. Hopefully it's so much better now. It sounds terribly self indulgent but actors do tend to be very self-critical. I have a hard time watching any of my performances, but watching Titanic I was just like 'Oh God, I want to do that again.'"
Winslet added to MTV.com, "My American accent could've been much better. My acting could've been a lot better."
Leonardo DiCaprio also cringed in embarrassment when he recently watched his Titanic in 3D, says director James Cameron.
DiCaprio never made it to the red carpet, but Cameron revealed his former leading man was left red-faced when he recently re-watched the film.
Cameron said, "I wish Leo could be here but he's shooting a film. It would have been great for Leo to be here, to be part of the celebrations. I didn't show him the whole film but I showed him 18 minutes of it a few months ago. It was a good reunion for us but great to watch his reaction. He couldn't believe it. He said to me, 'I'm such a young punk. Look at me.' He was practically crawling under the seat. It was a good moment."
