Kate Winslet will take kids to see 'Titanic' for first time

Paramount Pictures

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in 1997's "Titanic."

It may be a little embarrassing for their mother, but "Titanic" star Kate Winslet says it's probably time for her kids to see her in the 1997 hit "Titanic," which is being re-released in theaters this week.

"God knows what they'll think," Winslet told NBC News' Mike Wilber, wondering aloud if Mia, 11, and Joe, 8 would find it "embarrassing."

Winslet says she herself has only seen the film twice since making it, and it when it was on, her main thoughts were "Somebody switch it off!" and "Oh my God, that American accent!"

She also told Wilber that she was glad she and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio got along so well. "We were honestly so lucky that we didn't hate each other," Winslet said.

The film marked the end of Winslet's life as a little-known actress and the beginning of fame she couldn't have imagined. "I was suddenly so famous and so exposed," she said. "It was a short-lived, white-knuckle ride."
