Cameron continued: “There was a meeting with Leo and then there was a screen test with Leo. The meeting was fun because I’m sitting in my conference room, waiting to meet an actor. And I look around, and all the women in the entire office are in the meeting…they all wanted to meet Leo. It was hysterical!”
The Titanic director told how Leo wowed everyone and invited him to come back with Kate to check out their chemistry as Jack and Rose. However, the 21-year-old rising star didn’t get what he expected.
The filmmaker added: “He came back a couple of days later and I had the camera set up to record the video. I didn’t know I was going to do the test. He thought it was another meeting to meet Kate. So I said, ‘Okay, we’ll go in the next room, write a few lines, and I’ll videotape it. And he said, ‘You mean I’m reading?’ And I said, ‘Yes’. He said, ‘Oh, I don’t read.’ I shook his hand and said, ‘Thanks for coming, bye.’
