Kate Winslet - Winslet Embarrassed By 'Awful' Titanic Performance

Kate Winslet feels embarrassed by her performance in 1997's Titanic because her American accent was "awful" and her acting "could have been better".
Winslet stepped out in London on Tuesday night (27Mar12) for the premiere of the new 3D version of the film, and she admitted that despite being Oscar-nominated for her role in the epic movie, she wasn't happy with her performance.
She tells Cnn, "Every single scene, I'm like 'Really, really? You did it like that? Oh my God.'
"Even my American accent, I can't listen to it. It's awful. Hopefully it's so much better now. It sounds terribly self indulgent but actors do tend to be very self-critical. I have a hard time watching any of my performances, but watching Titanic I was just like 'Oh God, I want to do that again.'"
Winslet added to Mtv.com, "My American accent could've been much better. My acting could've been a lot better."

I thought her American accent was fine and I'm from New England. The acting was a bit over the top but that's the kind of movie it was. She did a fine job.
