James Cameron Jack Might Have Lived In Titanic Ending

In honour of Titanic's 25th anniversary, filmmaker James Cameron has set out to answer the age-old question of whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack could have actually squeezed through that door in the ending  and lived.

James Cameron commissioned a group of scientists to re-enact the famous raft scene from "Titanic" with stunt doubles, testing four possible variations to see if two individuals could have shared the door and settle the long-debated subject of whether or not Jack and Rose could have fit.

As a final test, they add the physical strain the characters would have experienced during the ship's sinking in the actual film.

Cameron also simulates the situation if Rose had provided Jack her life jacket: "And he's stabilised. He was in a position where, based on our projections, he might have survived until the lifeboat arrived.

Cameron gives his ultimate verdict: "Jack might have lived, but there's a lot of variables," said Cameron. "I think his thought process was, 'I'm not gonna do one thing that jeopardises her.' And that's 100 percent in character."
