The ending of Titanic has sparked so many emotions throughout the years, especially recently with everyone arguing that Jack could DEFINITELY have fit on that damn door with Rose and they could have lived happily ever after instead of Jack sinking to a watery grave in the name of “Love.”

But was there actually room for both of them?

Many celebrities have weighed in on the conspiracy, even Kate Winslet herself said her character should have scooted the hell over. But what does James Cameron think?

In an interview with Daily Beast Cameron did his best to put the debate to bed once and for all: “You mentioned Titanic, so I’ve got to ask: the age-old question is whether or not there was plenty of room on that plank-raft for Leo. I say yes, there was,” Daily Beast put to Cameron. He replied: “Look, it’s very, very simple: You read page 147 of the script and it says, ‘Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive’. It’s that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want.”

He then mentioned the episode of Mythbusters where they attempt to bust the myth that Jack couldn’t have hopped on: “So you’re talking about the Mythbusters episode, right? Where they sort of pop the myth? OK, so let’s really play that out: You’re Jack, you’re in water that’s 28 degrees [Fahrenheit], your brain is starting to get hypothermia. Mythbusters asks you to now go take off your life vest, take hers off, swim underneath this thing, attach it in some way that it won’t just wash out two minutes later—which means you’re underwater tying this thing on in 28-degree water, and that’s going to take you five to ten minutes, so by the time you come back up you’re already dead. So that wouldn’t work. His best choice was to keep his upper body out of the water and hope to get pulled out by a boat or something before he died. They’re fun guys and I loved doing that show with them, but they’re full of shit.”

So they’re you have it. If you think Rose and Jack could have floated away together on a Titanic door, then you are “full of shit.” Now let’s laugh at the fact that Rose tells Jack she’ll never let go at the exact moment she lets go of his cold hand and his pushes him into the ocean.
