 James Cameron Explains Why Jack Had To Die In Titanic

James Cameron's Titanic turns 20 years old this year, and it's coming back to theatres to mark the occasion. One part of the film that is continually discussed is why Rose (Kate Winslet) and Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) could not have both fit on the floating door after the ship went down. Instead, Jack says his goodbyes to Rose while freezing to death in the icy water. The TV show Mythbusters showed that Jack could have fit on the door. So why didn't he join Rose? Cameron gave what sounds like the final word on the subject in an interview with Vanity Fair, saying of course Jack could have fit on the floating door. But that was not the point.

"The answer is very simple because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies," Cameron explained. "Very simple. . . . Obviously it was an artistic choice, 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. But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die."

The entire film would have been "meaningless" of Jack survived, Cameron said. "The film is about death and separation; he had to die," the director explained. "So whether it was that, or whether a smoke stack fell on him, he was going down. It's called art; things happen for artistic reasons, not for physics reasons."
