Kate Winslet on Breaking Tom Cruise’s Record for the Longest Time Spent Holding Breath Underwater

James Cameron and Kate Winslet are working together again on Avatar: The Way Of Water sequel. The actor and director had previously collaborated on the Academy Award-winning movie Titanic (1997), which propelled Kate and her co-star, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, to international fame

Kate Winslet rose to fame during her role in the Titanic movie. Titanic was the first movie to pass the $1 billion mark, with an original global gross of almost $1.8 billion. It held the record for the most money made in a movie, in fact, until 2010 when another James Cameron production, Avatar, overtook it.

For many years, the public has been fascinated by both the catastrophe and the Titanic herself. Numerous books, plays, movies, songs, poetry, and other pieces of art have been influenced by them. The movie, then, instilled a whole other level of fame with merchandise based on the Titanic movie and video games such as Titanic: Honour and Glory and even an official online slot that are available at some the best slot sites like LeoVegas Casino.

Kate Winslet recently disclosed that during a training session for the new Avatar movie, she managed to hold her breath underwater for seven minutes and fifteen seconds. Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, and Sigourney Weaver join Kate in the sequel as a new character named Ronal.

The majority of the cast had to learn and practice free diving before they filmed their sequences because a large portion of the movie takes place in the ocean. The Academy Award-winning performer used motion capture for the first time for her role in the movie.

Kate released a video of her exercising with an instructor and holding her breath underwater for seven minutes and fifteen seconds when appearing as a guest on The Graham Norton Show recently. Kate ponders her state after practicing breathing techniques: “Am I dead?” The actor becomes really delighted when she discovers how long she held her breath.

Graham, the host, enquired as to her method. She responded: “It is a sport, to start. It’s not something you can try in the bathtub, and you shouldn’t ever attempt it on your own. In reality, when people are inexperienced, they gasp, come up, and that is when people black out and get into trouble.”

Kate described the breathing exercises she had previously used to control her breathing.

“I had three weeks of daily training during which I learned how to physically distribute oxygen throughout my body. It’s an astonishing, meticulous procedure. I excelled at it and truly enjoyed doing it “

While filming an underwater stunt for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation in 2015, Tom held the previous record for six minutes. 

“When you have abandoned your education, you doubt your ability to have the courage to study anything new. I felt so empowered as a woman about it,” claims Kate.

Olivia Wilde’s Unique Eye Color Referenced In Harry Styles’ Song

On October 3, 2022, Styles released his song ‘Music for a Sushi Restaurant.’ In the first verse of ‘Music for a Sushi Restaurant,’ he sings, “Green eyes, fried rice, I could cook an egg on you.” His lyrics matched Wilde’s eyes as she has heterochromia iris, which means her blue-green eyes are difficult to distinguish.

Detail on Olivia Wilde’s eye color

Wilde was born with a condition known as central heterochromia. It means that the iris’ inner ring is a different color than the outer ring. Wilde has an icy blue ring around her pupils and darker blue around the edges of the iris.

There is no specific cause of heterochromia. In most cases, children born with heterochromia will have no other symptoms and no other eye or general health issues. However, heterochromia can be a symptom of another condition in some cases. Similarly, Wilde appears to have no problem with her eye, despite the color difference.
