Kate Winslet thought she died in Avatar 2
While Kate Winslet loved holding her breath underwater for more than seven minutes to shoot Avatar 2, the actress now admits that she thought she was dead when she surfaced again.
The 45-year-old actress learned to free-dive for the film and broke Tom Cruise’s movie record. In conversation with Bang Showbiz, Winslet says that she thought it was a great experience, but she was also aware of the dangers.
“God, it was just great. Your mind wanders completely. You can’t think about anything; you can’t make lists in your head; you look at the bubbles beneath you … My first words when I surfaced were, ‘Am I dead?’ Yes, I thought I was dead .”
