'Titanic' Director Really Wants Everyone To Get Over The Door Thing
It's almost been 20 years since Titanic was released which then went on to gain major critical and box office success. And tbh it's also been 20 years that we've been carrying a heavy heart because Jack died. He could've fit on that door!!!!!
It has been the subject of much ~memery~ over the past few years with fans grappling with why Jack couldn't just fit on the damn door.
Past: Medieval theologians pondered how many angels could fit/dance on the head of a pin. Today: ppl w/ too much time on their hands discuss if Jack could fit on that door alongside Rose. #Titanic pic.twitter.com/O2fJwY4D25

Well today the film's director James Cameron has come out saying in an interview with Vanity Fair that basically we all need to get over the untimely demise of Jack and Rose.
“The answer is very simple because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies. 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. Had he lived, the ending of the film would have been meaningless. . . . The film is about death and separation; he had to die. 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."
BREAKING: “Titanic” to be released again in theaters for it’s 20th Anniversary.
Also, the ship still sinks and Rose will STILL not share space on that door with Jack, even though there is totally enough room for the both of them. pic.twitter.com/ys8uNamIy8

And for all you super sleuths who shared SCIENTIFIC REASONING he calls bs on that too because he's got some facts of his own.
“I was in the water with the piece of wood putting people on it for about two days getting it exactly buoyant enough so that it would support one person with full free-board, meaning that she wasn’t immersed at all in the 28 degree water so that she could survive the three hours it took until the rescue ship got there. [Jack] didn’t know that she was gonna get picked up by a lifeboat an hour later; he was dead anyway. And we very, very finely tuned it to be exactly what you see in the movie because I believed at the time, and still do, that that’s what it would have taken for one person to survive.”
Are you satisfied? Are you happy with all of the above? BRB going to watch the movie again and feel the pain of separation. Because it feels so good.
