Kate Winslet says she loved working with Titanic director James Cameron again ... trends now

Kate Winslet has said she loved working with Titanic director James Cameron again on Avatar 2 - after previously saying she wouldn't due to his 'bad temper'.

The actress, 47, starred in the iconic romantic movie with Leonardo DiCaprio in 1997, and now features in his new film Avatar: The Way of Water which is released next Friday. 

But in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, published in line with Titanic's release, Kate called James, 68, 'a really tough nut to crack', adding: 'There were times I was genuinely frightened of him.'

While Kate said she 'did come to understand him' and 'a couple of times... felt he was someone I could take a country walk with, and enjoy it,' she told The Guardian two years later: 'He has a temper like you wouldn't believe. 

You'd have to pay me a lot of money to work with Jim again.'

Speaking on Friday's upcoming episode of The Graham Norton show about why she changed her mind about working with him again she said: 'It's nearly 27 years since Titanic and I was very young.

'Looking back so much gets twisted. Jim is an amazing man and all the good things I ever said about him were left out so it's nice to be able to say how extraordinary he is and know people are going to listen this time.

'How he creates these stories is just mesmerizing and he establishes a working environment that is so much fun, really collaborative and super experimental.

She added of the new film: 'I've seen it now and it is amazing – it's completely extraordinary.'

Revealing her ability to hold her breath for a scarcely believable seven minutes for the movie's underwater filming, she says: 'It is a sport and I trained every single day for three weeks.
