    Kate Winslet struggled to deal with the pressure of her 'Titanic' success

    The 48-year-old actress starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the 1997 blockbuster film - but Kate admits that she subsequently struggled to deal with the pressures of fame and success


    Reflecting on her sudden rise to stardom, Kate told 'Extra': "There were moments that it was definitely really hard."

    Despite this, Kate is convinced that the landscape has changed in a dramatic way since then.

    The acclaimed actress said: "Now, when I look at like young actresses being completely themselves - like so happy with their bodies and just full of literally the joys of life and career - it brings me enormous amounts of pleasure."

    Kate previously admitted that her life was "horrible" after the release of 'Titanic'.

    The award-winning actress - who played Rose DeWitt Bukater in James Cameron's record-breaking movie - was only 22 when 'Titanic' was released, and Kate struggled to cope with the intense scrutiny that she faced.

    She told PORTER magazine: "Journalists would always say, 'After 'Titanic', you could have done anything and yet you choose to do these small things' ... and I was like, 'Yeah, you bet your life I did! Because, guess what, being famous was horrible.'"

    By contrast, Kate has now learned how to cope with the pressures of fame, revealing that she no longer considers it to be a "burden".

    The 'Mare of Easttown' star - who eschewed parts in big-budget movies in favour of period pieces following her 'Titanic' success - shared: "It's not a burden, any of it. ['Titanic'] continues to bring people huge amounts of joy. The only time I am like, 'Oh god, hide', is if we are on a boat somewhere."
