At least one person won't be humming along to the saccharine soundtrack of "Titanic" as it gears up for its 3D release on April 6: its star, Kate Winslet.
In an on-camera interview with MTV, Winslet was tear-free when asked about the Celine Dion ballad "My Heart Will Go On." Instead, the 36-year-old actress bemoaned the effects the once-omnipresent tune has had on her life, saying that it makes her feel like "throwing up" and that it has followed her into her daily routine, much to her exasperation.
"I do feel like throwing up. I wish I could say 'Oh listen, everybody! It's the Celine Dion song!' But I don't. I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll."
Winslet continued: "Every time I go into a bar in a hotel where there's a live pianist, or into a restaurant where they're changing their music according to who walks into the door, it's thrilling for people to 'surprise me' with that song."
"My Heart Will Go On" is one of the best-selling singles of all time, nabbing the Academy Award for Best Song in 1998 and selling more than 15 million copies worldwide. In 1998, it was also the best-selling single in the world.
