Cape Town - Leonardo DiCaprio finally spoke about the widely debated Titanic door scene.

The famous scene from the 1997 action-packed, romance movie Titanic, featuring actor Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack and Kate Winslet as Rose, stirred a lot of controversy, with many people saying Jack could’ve survived.  

Many Titanic fans have argued over the years that Jack could’ve lived happily ever after alongside Rose following the tragic ship accident if he’d just climbed onto the floating door next to Rose.

And while the movie was released more than 20 years ago, MTV News asked Leonardo, who was promoting his new movie, Once upon a time in Hollywood, whether this was true.

"I have no comment," responded the 44-year-old with a smirk.

Brad Pitt, Leonardo’s co-star in new movie, prodded Leonardo in an attempt to get him to answer the question.

"Could you, could you have squeezed there?" Brad asked him relentlessly.

"Like I said, I have no comment," Leonardo responded letting out a chuckle.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, in 2017 Titanic movie director James Cameron addressed the question in an interview.

"The thing was just big enough to hold her, and not big enough to hold him . . . I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we’re having this discussion 20 years later."
