Kate Winslet claims she 'never fancied' Leonardo DiCaprio

If we are being entirely honest with ourselves, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are the celebrity couple that we are all absolutely dying to happen.

The pair catapulted to fame after starring in 1998 love story ‘Titanic’ and have maintained an incredibly close friendship over the past 19 years, also starring in 2009 film ‘Revolutionary Road’ together.

Kate and Leo are regularly spotted out and about together and last year Kate was caught looking close to tears when Leo finally won his first Academy Award at the 2016 Oscars, leaving fans hopeful that one day the pair will get together.

However, 41-year-old Kate has now poured cold water over any hope that she and Leo will fall in love, insisting that she has never fancied the Hollywood heartthrob.

Speaking about her deep friendship with the star, Kate recalled meeting Leo on ITV’s Lorraine, sharing: “I think for Leo and I it was seven months of very intense work, we were both really very young

“And luckily, and this was the fortunate thing, we never fancied each other! I know that’s really annoying to hear, sorry. We really never did.

The pair starred in Titanic together in 1998.

“So it did mean that we were able to tease each other, which we still do, which is really amazing.”

Needless to say, fans were shocked and disappointed by the claims, and took to social media to share their reactions:

The revelation comes shortly after Kate confessed that she and Leo still speak to each other in ‘Titanic’ quotes, explaining: “You don’t even want to know the last conversation we had, because it was so funny and made me laugh so much.

“We found ourselves saying to each other, ‘Can you imagine if the world really knew the stupid things we say?’

“I’m not going to tell you what we actually talk about, but yeah, we’re very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny.”

Even though Kate insists that she doesn’t fancy Leo, we’re still going to keep our fingers crossed that one day these two will fall in love.
