Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet

Stare into his icy gaze. DO IT

Leo DiCaprio was many a girl’s first celebrity crush thanks to Titanic, and not a 12 year old female in the country didn’t wish to be Rose DeWitt Bukater.  Leo solidified his image as a teen heartthrob in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, and then mostly dropped out of the spotlight after The Man In The Iron Mask tanked.

Sorry ladies, but there are no pictures of Leo as hot as this.

Kate Winslet, meanwhile, sought out challenging dramatic roles in films like Quills and Iris.  In 2004 she co-starred in Michel Gondry’s amazing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and she’s been working in awesome, interesting movies since then.

Scorsese really gets the credit for discovering the true talent behind DiCaprio’s pretty face when he cast him in Gangs of New York.  He’s starred in two Scorsese films since, along with a slew of other decent movies.

REVOLUTIONARY ROAD

Click for trailer.

Now, eleven years after they shared the screen in Titanic, Winslet and DiCaprio are starring in Sam Mendes’ Revolutionary Road.  The film is based on the 1961 Richard Yates’ book- a novel about the dark side of suburban America.

So while Leo is the boy next door who grew up to be incredibly handsome (although slightly terrifying), Kate is like an awesome older sister who would teach you how to do your makeup while giggling at dirty jokes and watching trashy tv.  You naysayers can claim that Titanic wasn’t that good, or that it was overrated, or that it was an egotistical, masturbatory exercise for James Cameron with a bloated love story, but you’d all be WRONG.  Well, you  might be right.  But it’s undeniable that the two leads have grown into two of the greatest actors of our generation, and to see them perform together again should be nothing less than incredible.

    i really admired kate winslet until she admitted that she succumbed to the pressures of being a woman and abused her body for the sake of being thin. that was a total bummer.

    She’s healthy now, though, and I think it’s awesome that she’s so open about the struggle and pressures she’s felt to be attractive. Her honesty, candor, and intelligence make her an awesome role model, I think.
