Kate Winslet thought she knew her way around water after spending hours in chilly water shooting scenes for the Oscar-winning film Titanic.
So she wasn’t concerned about doing a scene in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, in which she and co-star Jim Carrey are in an oversized kitchen sink.
“Guys, don’t talk to me about how long we have to be in water. Hello, been there, done that. I wasn’t remotely fazed by it,” she said, according to AP Radio.
But the water was hot, and after about three hours, Winslet felt lightheaded.
“I got out … and I was like, ‘Can I have some water,’ and I fainted.”
In the film, the characters played by Winslet and Carrey have their memories erased, but Winslet said there was nothing she’d like to forget.
“Those are the things that make us stronger and change us as human beings,” the 28-year-old actress said. “And there’s nothing I’d go back and change.”
