The 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the HMS Titanic has raised some interesting tidbits... not just about the ship but also the forthcoming film.

Apparently the lead actress of the film "Titanic" - Kate Winslet - said the hit song "My Heart Will Go On", sung by Celine Dion for the film, made her feel sick.

"I feel like throwing up when I hear it. No, I shouldn't say that. No, actually, I do feel like throwing up. I wish I could say, "Oh listen, everybody! It's the Celine Dion song!" But I don't. I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll," Winslet was quoted as saying to MTV News.

The song remains one of the best selling singles of all time.

The 36-year-old actress also said "Titanic" gave her the breakthrough she required.

"I'm fortunate enough to get to choose the roles I play these days, largely due to the success of Titanic actually, and so I do like choosing things that are risky and a little bit unexpected. It was really Titanic that provided that creative freedom for me and actually then years later becoming a mother, it has been so brilliant the success of that film, because it has meant I haven't had to work as well and I can completely be a mum," Kate was quoted as saying to Magic 105.4 by the Daily Mail.

"Titanic 3D" is set to be released on 4 April.
