The director of the Titanic has revealed whether Jack would have fit on that door and survived...
We've all asked ourselves at some point or another if Jack could have actually survived by floating on the door with Rose. Right?
There was totally enough room for the two of them, plus it looked more than tolerable enough to hold the extra weight.
James Cameron has finally come to the party and offered some insight into this theory... and his insight is that you're a dickhead if you think he could have survived.
He told the Daily Beast, "We're gonna go there? 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'. It's that simple."
He then refers to that time the guys from Mythbusters proved that two people could infact survive by floating on a boat.
"You can do all the post-analysis you want. So you're talking about the MythBusters episode, right? Where they sort of pop the myth?"
"Okay, so let's really play that out: 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 - which 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."
So to put it in a nutshell, NO. Jack would NOT have survived.
