Kate Winslet - Kate Winslet's Titanic Champagne Regret

Kate Winslet's biggest regret at missing the original 'Titanic' premiere was not getting any free champagne.

The British actress contracted a bug while filming in Morocco 15 years ago and had to be hospitalised in London rather than attending the red carpet screening of the movie and Kate admitted she was more worried about the parties she missed out on rather than the film.

She said: ''I missed all the press activity, I was filming something in Morocco and they had built in the schedule, three days when I could come over to England and go to the premier and do all the press and I had contracted some terrible stomach bug when I was in Marrakesh and as soon as I landed in London I was just wiped out and literally had to be rushed to hospital and was on a drip for two days and missed everything!

''So I had various family members and Jim Cameron and Leo [Leonardo DiCaprio] all coming in dribs and drabs throughout the night, after the screening of the film to see how I was doing and to tell me about all the wonderful things I was missing out on, Caviar bar, great DJ and free champagne - back in the days of free champagne being a seriously big deal!, I missed it all!''

Kate, 36, also revealed she is grateful for the success of the film - which is being re-released in 3D for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ocean liner - because it has allowed her more freedom in choosing her roles.

In an interview with Neil Fox on Magic 105.4's Breakfast Show, she said: ''I'm fortunate enough to get to choose the roles I play these days, largely due to the success of 'Titanic' actually, and so I do like choosing things that are risky and a little bit unexpected. It was really 'Titanic' that provided that creative freedom for me and actually then years later becoming a mother, it has been so brilliant the success of that film, because it has meant I haven't had to work as well and I can completely be a mum ... and that's not the case for a lot of actresses who are starting out and have to take what they can.''
