If Rose had gone underwater for any length of time in Titanic, we now know she could hold her breath for some time.
True story, the actress has been tested.
Seven minutes seems forever underwater. Tom Cruise previously held the movie record for holding his breath for over six minutes in a Mission Impossible underwater scene, but Titantic goddess, Kate Winslet, has taken the new movie record in an Avatar 2 scene.
Across their various social media pages, Avatar 2 debuted a first look image of Winslet submerged in a large tank while wearing weights and filming a scene for the upcoming Avatar sequel. Winslet did not appear in the first Avatar film, and based on the image shared, she appears to be playing some sort of marine life form with what look to be wings. Filming Avatar 2 required much of its cast to shoot scenes underwater, and Winslet has gone all out preparing for her role and has described bits of her training in interviews. “I had to learn how to free-dive to play that role in Avatar,” Winslet states in an interview with THR, “and that was just incredible.”Kate Winslet Beats Tom Cruise’s Underwater Record In Avatar 2
I had to look up what the world record for human beings holding their breaths underwater and was shocked to learn it is over 22 minutes for a man and 18+ minutes for a woman. That’s crazy. How does someone hold their breath that long underwater? Seriously, how?!
I’m impressed with Winslet’s underwater stamina, regardless if the Avatar sequel is still over two years away and maybe another underwater scene can avail itself to a potential record breaking scene.
Six minutes, seven minutes? Crazy!
