More than a decade since they took their Oscar-winning trip together on Titanic, Kate Winslet says Leonardo DiCaprio still floats her boat.

“I hadn’t realized how much my chemistry with him since Titanic would still stick,” Winslet, who stars with her former shipmate in the upcoming drama Revolutionary Road, tells Entertainment Weekly.

But the 32-year-old actress had to reset her compass during love scenes in the movie, which was directed by her husband Sam Mendes.

“I just kept saying, ‘This is too … weird,’ ” Winslet added. “And Leo was like, ‘Oh, get over it.’ And I’m going, ‘Yeah, a little reminder: You’re my best friend. He’s my husband. This is a bit weird.’ ”
