Bill Paxton Loves What 3-D Has Done for Kate Winslet’s Figure

Last night at the New York Marriott Marquis, a gala was thrown to benefit the Tisch School of the Arts, but Bill Paxton was still in the mood to celebrate Titanic 3-D, which he had recently seen at its premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London. "It was amazing," Paxton gushed to us. "I thought it was just going to punch up all of the big set pieces, but it actually kind of enhanced the drama of the lovers. And I thought Kate looked great in 3-D, naked on that day bed — like, damn! No wonder Leo had a hard time drawing. I’ve seen it from his point of view now!" (Don't tell China that.) As for the ongoing controversy over whether Celine Dion's immortal Titanic theme, "My Heart Will Go One," is heavenly or vomitous, Paxton says its rendition at the premiere convinced him. "You know I gotta tell you, they had [composer] James Horner there, and he conducted a huge orchestra with the woman ... not Celine Dion, but the one who does the choral vocals for that? And, well, it still gives me goosebumps."
