It's a truth universally known that Rose could have definitely moved over and let Jack on her raft instead of, you know, LEAVING HIM TO DROWN. Also, we're talking about Titanic (opens in new tab) right now, in case that wasn't clear.
^ BOY, BYE.
Much research has been done into whether or not there was room on that raft (hint: there was), and MythBusters even devoted an entire episode to it—determining that yes, Rose could have perhaps shared her space. But apparently James Cameron isn't here for our "theories"—despite being featured on that episode of MythBusters.
"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,'" he told The Daily Beast (opens in new tab). "It's that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want."
Oh, analysis like looking at this GIF and realizing there is all the room in the world for poor Jack?
^ Move 👏 the 👏 eff 👏 over.
"You're Jack, you're in water that's 28 degrees, 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," Cameron continued. "[That] 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."
Damn, James Cameron, tell us what you really think.
