Kate Winslet has finally made the premiere of the "Titanic" after missing the boat twice before.
Titanic 3-D has set sail once again, this time debuting in 3-D. The movie's premiere occurred Tuesday night, with Winslet finally stepping on board after having missing the film's two original premieres.
The movie's original premiere first took place in 1997. Winslet was unable to make the world premiere at Mann's Chinese Theatre after she discovered that her ex-boyfriend had died from cancer. Again, when the film debuted in the U.K. shortly after, Winslet could not attend because she was suffering from dysentery that she picked up while filming in Morocco.
Tuesday however, Winslet appeared to her first premiere for the Titanic in good health. When asked by MTV what if felt like to see the film revived in 3-D, Winslet proclaimed that she was taken back.
"It feels amazing," Winslet said. "I mean, it is a very strange experience because it's a long time since I've seen the film in its entirety."
Despite admiring the film's greatness, Winslet was critical of her 21 year-old self, remarking that her acting skills were not what they should have been.
"My American accent could've been much better. My acting could've been a lot better," she commented.
Winslet in fact, appreciates her entire self better now than then.
"I think I look nicer now," she said. "I prefer myself as a 36-year-old. It's really weird 'cause when you're 21 you think, 'Oh God, when I'm 36, oh God, that's nearly 40 and I'll look really old and wrinkly by then.' And actually I quite like the way I look. I feel OK about myself these days."
James Cameron, the film's director, also commented on the impressiveness of the 3-D film.
"The 3D enriches all of Titanic's most thrilling moments and its most emotional moments," Cameron told reporters. "It kicks the whole experience up to another level."
