Kate Winslet has finally admitted the truth about Rose’s final moments with Jack in Titanic. The actress confirmed on Monday during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that there was, in fact, enough space for Jack Dawson (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) to get on to the floating door in the one of the last scenes of the film.

Winslet’s Rose DeWitt Bukater survives the Titanic wreck because she is lying down on one of the doors from the ship that’s floating in the waters while her lover Jack dies because he spends too long a time unprotected in the freezing water.

Fans have, for several years, posited the theory that the two lovers could have survived the wreck and maybe even lived happily ever after if only Rose had pulled Jack up on to the floating piece of door. And with Winslet’s confirmation, it seems they have triumphed.

“I think he could have actually fitted on the piece of door,” she told Kimmel to much applause from the studio audience.

Winslet also went on to talk about how “lovely” it is that fans get excited about seeing her and Leonardo DiCaprio share the same space. “It has been 20 years and people still get such a kick out of it,” she said, referring to the fact that Titanic released in 1997. Which is not really 20 years ago, but hey, who’s counting?

Winslet’s statement vindicated her fans and a few of them took to Twitter to express their feelings.
