A Timeline of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio's Epic, Adorable, Award-Winning Friendship

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio met in 1996 while filming the blockbuster Titanic, playing one of the most iconic couples in cinematic history: Rose Dewitt Bukater and Jack Dawson, star-crossed lovers who met on the ill-fated Titanic in 1912.
